Question about GE 27GT722 27" TV

1 Answer

GE 27GT271 locked onto satellite mode?

Our GE television was given to us by a friend. She was using it with a satellite dish. She had to move suddenly, and during the packing she lost the remote, so she disconnected it before she removed the satellite dish code. We bought a Universal One for All remote, which seems to operate the tv just fine, but the tv seems to be stuck in satellite mode. It will not pick up any channels off our antenna. Her son was trying to help us program it and he accessed a menu we have not been able to find again. This second menu said to "enter code". We programmed the remote to the tv and ran the channel scan. We used the remote to "restore factory default settings", but I suspect this is just resetting the REMOTE, not the tv. We called the cable companies, but they couldn't - or wouldn't - offer any solutions. Is there a way to unlock the satellite setting? Will we have to sign up for satellite for a month or so, so that we can unlock it? Or are we just out of luck on this?

We are not getting a full picture on the screen. There is a black section across the top and the bottom of the screen. How can I adjust this out. We have never had a problem with the TV before but we...

It may have something to do with the closed captioning... Hit the menu button, then select Screen. There you should see the options for CC. Try turning it off if they are on. Other than that the issue may not be with your TV but with the reciever for the satellite. Make sure it's not configured for a wide screen (that the aspect ratio is either 1:1, 4:3 and not 16:8)
