32" GE Stereo Monitor Guide+Gem Star Television

While watching TV,..I also have a Scientific Atlantic Explorer 8300HD cable box, the volumue went out as if the TV were muted but no captioned titles appeared on screen. I tried unplugging everything...all the connections appear to be in tact. the only thing strange is from the remote when I go to the Audio function. #1 mute appears on that line, but when I try to scroll left or right to try to deactivate mute..nothing happens. So I have a perfect picture, can change channels, but no volume..Can anyone help this single mom

Re: 32" GE Stereo Monitor Guide+Gem Star Television

I had the same problem with no sound, but I followed the suggestion of turning off the TV and unpluging the AC cord. I then accessed the menu funtion (from the TV, not the remote), highlighted the Audio Speaker Variable funtion, pressed the "+" key and presto, I had sound. Thanks for the (indirect) help!

Re: 32" GE Stereo Monitor Guide+Gem Star Television

Pauz, we need the model number to be able to help you out, located on front of owners manual or on back panel of tv set. some of the GE/RCA built tv`s had problems with extra data bits from the satellite and it would kill the audio, yours may be one of those sets, heres the fix for them, shut off your tv, un-plug the tv`s AC cord from the wall outlet, wait 20 seconds, plug set back in, turn it on and see if audio has returned, you might get lucky :)
Let me know model number if unplugging does not re-set the audio, BMW Rider

Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

GE GUIDE PLUS television coaxial cable

Contact the cable provider to know about the signal type they are transiting by it. If it is digital type, you must ahve a set top box to convert it to analogue signals, which your TV can process. It sounds so.

How do I put the GE remote xs stereo monitor into input mode without the remote?

A good universal remote to use with that monitor is the RCA RCRN04GR, available at WalMart. I recently bought a 25" GE Remote Monitor XS Stereo from a Days Inn that was replacing all of those monitors with Flat Screen TV's. When I got it home I found that it would not go to channel 4 which was default with my COX Digital Cable Box. Channel 3 is the default channel on the monitor, so I ran an AV cable from the cable box, disconected the coax and hooked up the AV cable to the back of the TV and that solved the problem. I hope that answer was helpful.

My ge tv digital ready?

Your TV is NOT digital ready. IF you do not have cable or satellite, you will need a converter box. If you do have cable or satellite you have nothing to do or worry about as the cable or satellite box will automatically do the conversion for you. Hope this helps

Black square in middle of screen about 25in X 25 in

If a black square appears on the screen and you can see the picture around the edges, it means that the closed captions are on and set to "TEXT". Go into the TV's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.
