Question about GE 25GT240 25" TV

2 Answers

I can't get Direct TV to work with this TV! I don't believe this is possible - but the Direct TV guy could not get it to work with my TV. Is my TV simply broken - or do I need to buy something such as a converter box?

    Here is all I know:



    The Direct TV box is a Direct TV and DVR in one

    I also have a DVD player which I believe is connected to the TV (but not the D-TV box)

    The D-TV box is connected to my TV with the red/yellow/white cable only

    The TV is on channel 3

    I have tried hitting the 'input' button on the remote several times with no luck

    u do not need converter with d-tv-- could be many reasons its not workin--try another receiver how is it connected to receiver? cable? av cables? is your tv on channel 3?, change input setting on tv maybe,also switch on back of receiver for channel 3or 4as a former d-tv installer i never had a tv that was workin that would not work with d-tv it all depends on the way the signal is put into tv-- what type of connections are on tv?

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

You would go in on Ch3 or Ch4 with antenna selected, not cable (CATV)

Where are RCA jacks


Unfortunately I don't believe this TV has RCA jacks. You will have to buy a different T.V. that has RCA jacks to hook up. If it did, they would be in the back, but I'm pretty sure this model is only equipped with a coax if that's the case.

If you don't see these, they don't exist.

Most programmable remotes will work some combo units like yours,but,unfortunately,not all! The Direct TV guy is most likely right.
