GE 32" TV Problem

The basic cable channels I have are channels 2 through 80. When I turned on the TV this week, channels 2 through 50 do not display. Channels 51 through 80 are perfectly clear.

I moved the TV to another room and same problem. I tried a different TV at this location, no problem.

Is the tuner gone bad?

    Autoprogram deleted the channels but did not correct the problem.

    I found out if I leave the TV on for about 15 -20 minutes, the lower channels will begin displaying on their own again. It appears the tuner has to "warm up" for them to start working properly.

I would suggest to do an autoprogram again and see it that helps.

How is your TV setup--do you have a cable box, satellite, or basic cable? I would recommend going into the settings and running a channel search.

Press Menu. The on-screen display menu options with Setup highlighted.
Press RIGHT arrow to enter the sub-menu, then press DOWN or UP to highlight AUTO CH SEARCH.
Press ENTER or RIGHT arrow to start the search.

Channel displaying on Samsung 32"LCD TV

Most remote controls have a "display" button. Pressing that is what gets that channel number on the screen. Try pressing it again and the display should turn off. On some brands the display may cycle through various combinations (channel number only, channell and time, etc.) before it goes away, so it may take more than one press of the button.

GE 32GT740 32" TV problem

there are two things that can cause this, 1 there is a muting transistor on the bottom of the PCB that is a surface mount transistor that goes short. this is the channel mute transistor. when you change channels it is designed to mute the static between channel changes. if it shorts then it mutes. 2 the EE-PROM is defective and needs to be replaced. i'de go with the transistor first. if you are unequipped to do this repair have a tech do it.

No channels?

Try going into the setup menu and make sure the ANT input is set to cable. Then look for Auto Program or Channel Setup and let it scan and find all the channels it can receive. After it's done you should be able to go up and down through the channels.
