Where to plug in the home theater on the tv?

If you REALLY want to plug your tv into your home theater system there should be rca (red and white) jacks on the back of the tv that say "audio out" or "speaker out" thats your tv's audio output. which is where you would plug in the TV to your home theater system.

But there's really no reason to do this and its not the most desirable way to set u a home theater. Sound doesnt come from your tv, and therefore your tv shouldnt be plugged into speaker (unless you have old school wal cable) sound comes from your cable box, DVD player, VHS, Xbox, Ps3 etc. the sound comes from your source, and these sources should be hooked up directly you your home theater reciever

RCA Home Theatre System 51 or 52"? Chassis # PTK169PAAS

If it is a "minor" convergence problem you can adjust it by going to the menu and scrolling to convergence and follow prompts A cross will appear when you have reached the correct place and you do the minor adjustments as it says. If picture is bowed you have major convergence problems.

Surround sound

Make sure the RCA cable is going from an audio OUT on TV or DirecTV box to a red/white (non-digital) audio IN on surround sound or home theater system.

GE 31GT660 picture is intensly WHITE

The GE (actually RCA) 31GT660 uses the CTC187 series chassis. This chassis is notorious for bad solder joints on the shields around the tuner and microprocessor. When the solder joints on the shields crack, the microprocessor and EPROM lose their ground and the EPROM's data becomes corrupt. The solder joints on the shields will all have to be resoldered and the EPROM reprogrammed or replaced by a qualified tech familiar with the 187 series chassis.

GE 25GT516TX1

The GE (actually RCA) 25GT516 uses the CTC185 series chassis. The dashes you show look like the old display of a clock that has not been set. I have never heard of this chassis producing those dashes continually on the screen, so the first thing I would do is eliminate any cable box, satellite receiver, DVD or VCR. If you have cable, run it directly to the set and see is the dashes are there. If you are sure that the dashes are being generated within the TV and you have properly set the clock and turned off the OSD, then it soulds like an EPROM problem and the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the CTC185 chassis.

Have cable.........but not working

The GE (actually RCA) 31GT659 has the notorious CTC187 chassis. This chassis developes cracks in the solder joints on the shields around the tuner and microprocessor, and can mess up the settings stored in the EPROM IC. This could result in channels going snowy, vertical collapse, loss of sound and/or total shut-down. The set should be resoldered and reprogrammed by someone experienced with this RCA chassis.

Vide problem

I think you have a problem in the vertical circuit in your tv. It sounds like you have a loose solder joint. The set would have to be taken apart and re-soldered. You really have an RCA chassis inside your tv. RCA's have a lot of bad solder connections. Stargazer
