Question about GE 25GT240 25" TV

1 Answer

Audio / Video input and output jacks

On this model there are only two extra jacks in the rear of the tv. The center posts won't go into the set. These holes read "Focus" (upper) and "Screen" (lower). Is there a way to adapt this set to accept audio/video input for other devices like dvd players? If it matters this tv is also called a GE Commercial Skip. Any advice? Thanks!

Repair manual

If you are saying the cable fitting on the set broke off a cable box with standard audio and video output jacks on the rear can be connected to the same jacks on the rear of the set-----then you select that input (they are numbered) and watch tv using the box for channels.

You then have bypassed the tuner connection for the set.

I have a 48 inch rca tv and the antenna/cable connect broke off,is there any other way to hook up my cable

YES, get a cable box that has audio/video outputs on the rear and go from there to one of the sets your tv set has (INPUT)----put set on that input (they are labeled) and change channels via the cable box, bypass a hundred dollar plus repair and get a better picture and sound quality to boot.

the cable fitting goes to the tuner in the set but the rear audio/video jacks bypass the tuner completely.

I can't find any channels at JVC LCD TV

Not knowing the model I will make some suggestions: If have a DVD player and it works via the rear audio/video inputs try connection of your set via the rear jacks like the DVD uses.

How are you hooked up? cable? cable box? Sat? what?
If no channels found it may be no signal is reaching the set or the tuner in the set is bad--lots of reasons with same result.

If for example have a cable box with audio/video outputs connect instead of to the coax fitting on the set to rear jacks--go to that input and change channels with box---by pass whatever this issue is.

I have a sony trinitron wega - I know it is old but it is still great -- I need some advise on getting a pvr -- what should I look for

Actually, the TV is only a display device. It's just there to show you the picture from the PVR, and you're free to pick any model PVR with the features you want and a price you like. The only thing you need to be concerned about is connecting the PVR to the set.

Your Sony should have audio and video input jacks on the rear panel. (I'm assuming you have a Sony since your question is posted under that heading, but that's not always the case.) Almost every model has at least one set. These older models usually only offer composite video input with a single yellow RCA jack, and a pair of jacks (red and white) for stereo audio input. When you pick a PVR, just be sure it has a composite video output available. I haven't seen one yet that doesn't, but there a lot of models out there. If your model also happens to provide a component video input (with three RCA jacks, colored red, green and blue), that's even better. Component video gives better performance, and it's a standard output on PVRs and other video devices.

All you need to do is connect the PVR video output to the TV and select that input. You can connect the audio output to the TV, or use your home stereo receiver and speakers instead if you have a system. This might give you enhanced sound performance.

If your TV is a model not equipped with AV inputs (true for some very basic models, especially smaller screen sizes), you'll need an RF modulator. The TV can only pick up signals from its tuner, and that's where the modulator comes in. It takes the video and audio from the PVR and makes a channel 3 or 4 signal to the TV's antenna input. You might find a PVR with a modulator built in, but that's pretty rare now.

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?

If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:


Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Tv only accepts signal from the single black cable cannot get the tv to recognize the 2 audio cables and one video cable.. how do i fix this?

Your Emerson TVs audio format is not stereo; it is mono. Therefore only one audio input will be active. There is a Note give on your TVs manual. I copies it here for your information.

1. VIDEO (IN) jack- Connect to the video

output jack of a video camera or VCR.

2. AUDIO (INPUT) L/R jacks- Connect to

the left/right channel audio output jacks of

a video camera or VCR.

Note: The AUDIO (INPUT)L jack is for

mono input. The sound is heard from both

speakers. Use this jack for monaural audio
equipment to be hooked up.

Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

Can u explain how to set up the television system with my digital television box.

The digital box should have a round threaded output connector on its back panel. These are usually marked "OUT TO TV" or "RF OUT" or something similar. There may also be a slide switch nearby to select channel 3 or 4 output to the TV. On some boxes the output channel selection is through and on-screen menu. You only need to connect the output of the digital box to the TV's antenna connector, then tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the box setting. Leave the TV on that channel all the time and do your channel changing on your digital box using its remote control.

If your TV has an AV input for connecting a device like a VCR or DVD player, you can probably connect the digital box that way. Most boxes provide stereo audio and video outputs, and you will get a clearer picture and sound if your TV has the input jacks. If your TV is not stereo and has just a single white input jack for audio (instead of red and white ones for stereo right and left), you'll need a Y-adapter to join the audio outputs from the box together to feed into the TV.

On the off chance you have a digital box with no RF output (I've never seen one since they need to work with older TV sets, but I don't know evey model), and your TV doesn't have AV inputs, you need an RF converter. The converter takes the audio and video signals from the digital box and generates the channel 3 or 4 TV signal that your set can pick up with its tuner. You can find RF converters at larger retailers and online.

firstly try that tv to a different tv
if this works
then check your tv av connections in side tv
also check cables continuity
if this fails buy a AV/ RF converter, have your AV be connected to a converter, and let your output be RF feed to a tv, RF input, so instead of using AV on your tv you will be using RFchannel mode

the yellow rca input jack( not the output one ) is for video in (by itself ) and the red and white rca jack inputs are for the right and left audio that is also required when using the yellow video jack
the red and white audio jacks are also required when using the component video inputs ( BLUE , GREEN & RED ) rca jacks
but only one type of connection is required ( yellow video jack , red and white audio jacks ) or ( the blue , green and red component video jacks and the red and white audio jacks )

you will need the yellow video input and the red and white audio inputs
