Question about GE 25GT240 25" TV

1 Answer

GE TV model 25gt239

My mother gave me this tv and I am trying to connect it to my comcast cable connection. But it appears that this model tv may not accept channels higher than 99 channels. Even with auto chan scan/set-up and spaces for three channel digits, the tv will not accept chan 100 and above. My mother did not have the owners manual so maybe the tv (a 1999 manufacture) is not capable of more than 99 channels. Can you help?

I think your TV is made by RCA and it should go to cable channel 125. If Comcast has any channels above 100, you should be able to get them. RCA TV's have a problem with the solder connections inside the tuner. This may be your problem. If this is the case the tuner would have to be taken apart and re soldered. Stargazer

Adding a smart tv just requires adding an ethernet cable to your internet connection to the ethernet port on the set. The smart services on the set us a broadband internet connection to work.

Brought a GE model 27gt722 tv...can not pick up all channels on cable. Usually once you hook up cable wire to tv cable is automatically on ..at least that is how it was on old tv


Depending on the cable company, some like Comcast have gone mostly digital meaning when you connect the TV directly to cable without a cabe box you will only get around 35 channels. The only way to get around that is to get a cable box. If you have Comcast service already they offer what they call a DTV cable adaptor which will allow you to get most cable channels. These DTV adaptors in most areas are free for the first two per household. I hope that helps : )

Panasonic 42" connected to comcast dvr, and dvd player


To solve need more info if this is still a problem.
Is your comcast dvr connected directly to the tv, and also the DVD connected directly to the TV?
If so then you will need to change the input selection on your tv remote to determine which inputs these devices are connected to.
If you are connected differently, please post how your devices are connected.

How to Hook up HDMI from Comcast Motarola Cable Box


Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

Yes, you will need an external antenna to pull in the digital signals. It will not work with the built-in antenna on the GE. Alternately, you can use an external antenna (ie, rabbit ears), connect them to the converter box, then connect the converter box to the antenna jack on the back of the TV (I think it has one). Granted, not an elegant solution for a kitchen TV, but it beats not using it anymore.

When connected to cable - sometimes snow on channels 14-21.


The RF Connector could be loose either because of bad solder connection or just that part of the tuner could be going bad in the TV. One fix or repair is too use a cable box to eliminate the tuner issue or borrow one for test, and or buy a inexpensive vcr and hook it to cable first then take the output out of vcr and run to tv tuner input. Or better yet, use Yellow ,Red, White cables (Composite video) and run it into respective inputs on TV if it has those inputs. Let me know if this solves your problem or at least gets you close. Thank you. And talk to you soon....Jay
