Try hooking up a vcr or dvd player that you know works.The TV "thinks" it's not getting a signal. Be sure the TV's on ch #3 or #4, depending on the output channel for the vcr. If you see/hear the tape on TV you know the TV's ok and the problem's in reception, maybe a loose connection.

VCR Tape


This sounds like the tape is being stretched which can only mean one thing, the brakes on the supply spool (left side) is engaged and is preventing free rotation of the spool for the source/supply side of the tape. A sure sign that tap is being stretched would be deformation on the edges of the tapes you have used (rewind them just a bit).

Since this involve opening the unit and full disassembly of the mechanical aspect of the VCR, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified VCR technician.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

White Noise Sound

Your problem is somewhere between the tuner and video detector circuit. The signal entering your TV carries: video,red color,and blue color as well as sychronizing pulses for color and horizontal and vertical deflection ( actually vertical sync. is derived from horizontal sync.) along with burst pulses to synchronize the color. After all these, the sound is an fm signal entwined with a pilot signal for stereo audio. WHAT a mess! After the audio passes through all this, it is detected and sent to the audio processor. If any frequency has drifted away from it's value then you loose the sound. SO... your problem could be in any of the tuned circuits or in the audio processor IC (chip). Any component changing value could creat this problem. Most likely the audio processor IC. You'd need to have the set checked out by a tech to find your problem. Stargazer

GE Model #25GT511 Power on, no picture or sound

The question I have is if the tv stays on but with no pix or sound,we have a way to check,if you place your forearm in the face of the picture tube and the hair in your arm stands up it means you have the high voltage needed to light up the tube but something else is missing like the screen voltage or it has a loose conection in the crt board,if the hair in your arm does not react to static then we are missing the high voltage and the problem might be more involved and related to the horizontal circuit not creating the high voltage needed.If you are familiar with tv service you have a few places to check but if you are not to familiar play it safe and call for assistance from a professional servicer.Let Us know how it goes please.
