Screen is all snow and channel 4 shows in the upper right hand corner. TV needs to be on channel 3, but trying to change it manually does not work; therefore, satellite tv does not work. I've checked...

Check your TVs settings. Check if channel skip option in on. If it is on, this type of fault occur. Turn it to off if it is in on condition. If the blue back screen option is there, just turn it on to avoid grains on unused channels.

Will not show channels below 51

The GE (actually RCA) 35GT690 uses the CTC187 series chassis. The tuner uses the VHF circuits for cable channels lower then 51 and the UHF circuits for the higher channels. This means that the VHF circuits have stopped working in your set. I usually find that this is caused by a defective U7301 IC in the tuner, the SIP IC labeled CXA1594L. This is a very difficult IC to change and all tuner ground solder joints should be resoldered too, so that should be done by someone with experience in the CTC187 chassis.

Lost channels 2 through 52

I think the low band (Channel 2-6)in your tuner is not working. This could be in the tuner itself or in the band switching circuits. Possibly she deleted the low channels or locked them out. Stargazer

Instead of explaining the SAP/Stereo function to you, the easiest way to get the TV back to normal is while the set is on press the ACTION and POWER buttons at the same time and hold them until the CHK screen appears. Once that does release the buttons and then press the action button again to exit the CHK screen. Your TV is now back to the factory settings and will need to have the channels programmed again. By the way the SAP/STEREO button on the remote should be near the upper left hand corner of the remote itself.

Same channel on all channels

Yeppers it certanly sounds like the tuner control curcuit or the tuner itself is bad. With the back off the set and the tV on, if you tap on the side of the tuner does the set start to work? if so the tuner has to be replaced
