Question about GE VG2050 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Not a good signal

First of all the model I have is not listed so this model is the closest one to it. The Model I have is GE VG2016. I know it is an older model but hope you can help. I am having a problem with the cable signal going through the vcr. I get a snowy picture on the TV. Especially the lower channels it is hardly visable. I disconnected the VCR and hooked up to cable directy to the TV and it works great. This has coming on for a long time but recently it is getting worse. Any suggestions? Chas

You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input. The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially. Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.

Ge universal remote code for element

Do a search on Amazon for your Make (GE) and Model #, Universal remote or remote and you should get a list of remotes made for your TV.

...or try several search engines looking, again for Make and Model # but this time add the words, "Universal remote code."

It seems that the wiring diagram show the hot/black side going to the defrost timer AFTER the cold control/thermostat. how does the timer keep running when the cold control isn't...

If your model is the PSS26MSRSS the defrost timer is built into the motherboard and will be completely electronic. Click here for the=> Service Manual And then click here for=> GE Profile/Artica Technical Information Now it is possible that the model listed here requesting a solution may have been listed incorrectly by auto generated model numbers and not by your fault, it just happens here at times. So if this is what happened then try again to provide a different model number. Here is how GE locates their model numbers, Click Here=>

Have model jvm1740sm1ss ...keypad has shorted ...cant seem to find parts for this model even on ge site

This should be the correct parts listing for the model number you have provided:

Here is another part listing which is a slight variation of your model. The part numbers are still the same, however:

I believe the model number should read "JVM1740SMSS01". If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Does the GE 35GT740 model have a digital tuner?

As far as I know, this set DOES NOT have the required tuner capability. Please note that the changeover only effects those using rabbit ears or a rooftop antenna. If you have cable or satelite, no change will be seen. The change over is from an analog broadcast signal to a digital one. Your set has a digital tuner that expects an analog input signal.

Hope this helps,
