This could be a problem with the on switch contacts becoming intermittent.They could also be wearing out from use. You need to open the television and check out the switch. You can try resoldering the connections and using contact cleaner to clean up the action if it is not a electronic switch. If it is a electronic switch try using contact cleaner on switch connection points to clean the connectors. Try tracing the connection on to the main connector and clean up that connector the same way.also check for possible faulty components in the circuit path that could be causing the problem. Like bulging capacitors and bad solder joints. If all this does not resolve your problem, then you should replace the switch if you can.You can check out the G.E. website for your make and model number of television, plug in the numbers into the customer service section and check out the frequently and troubleshooting sections and see if other people have had this problem with their televisions and had the problem solved. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Techwood tv 42" model 42832 was working nipped to shops so pressed power button on side came back ten mins later switched it on and came on and changes diff colours as seen in video how can I fix this

you have a power supply partial failure if you know how to safely check your power supply check the voltages, swolen capacitors etc. leaking capicators are usually the problem. if you know nothing about power supplies do not look at the tv without the tv unplugged! better yet; have the supply repaired by a professional. a power supply can kill you!

Need code for a 13in tv so i cAN USE REMOTE

Your remote should have come instructions that would have several TV's, VCR's and DVD players on it. You need to find out the name and model of TV you are using and find it on the code instruction sheet and follow the instructions to program the remote. Not all TV's are on every remote so taking the name and model of the items you wish to program when shopping for a universal remote is advised to ensure you get the proper one.

My remotes will not activate the opener from anywhere but inside the garage. Worked fine the first month then stopped

2 possible solutions; #1) unplug the motor for 3 mins then replug (resets memory) #2) on back of motor is a "learn button" - press learn button for 3 sec, then press your remotes for 3 sec.

i have seen this before and it may be the front power button being stuck and when your remote turns it on the stuck button turns it back off again. I have an older mitsubishi that will not boot up right sometimes and i have to unplug it and plug it back in fot it to come on. I used to pick up broken tv and fix the power buton and resell them

Remote control

I used a GE Universal remote. The package has number 24921 and the instruction manual says it's a RM24912. Anyway, this model will control pretty much all aspects of this tv combo assuming we are talking about the KLH KDT133UY tv/dvd.

What you need to do is program the tv button on the remote to code 0029 which is a KONKA code. The real maker of KLH electronics. Then set the dvd/vcr button to code 0905. Now in order to access the tv menu, press the tv button then press the shift button which is the setup button. Then press the INFO button for menu. SHIFT, MENU, OK, and EXIT are printed with a black backgroung on the remote. Hince you need to press shift.

Took a while to figure it out, but here you go. Good Luck!
