I have this GE, and it works fine, but has what looks like a gray film, or cloud over the picture. The fog/cloud is even, and the picture is fine. Just foggy. Help Please...as others, I just want to know if it's worth fixing.

Ur girl friend clean around did she unplug the tv.Replug it back later?Bet u she did,that why the tv universal codes is gone.Reprogram ur tv unverisal codes again should solved this problems.Tries push the manual control button channel up like one or two times tv will be in input video again like video 1 or 2.
My only suggestion would be to purchase a multi-functional remote that you could program to your TV. Now some remotes have to be programed buy your old remote. That is not what you need. You need the kind that comes with a little book that will list your tv model number and give you a code (usually 4 numbers) to teach it to talk to your tv.
Well you going to need a new tuner! Let me tell you now that digital is out or is comming your not going to find the part!!! Well if this has RCA inputs your in luck you buy a digital box around $60 bucks then put the tuner on it and you in luck and you saved your TV!!
I had the same problem. I found the solution in this link. http://www.techlore.com/forum/thread/13480/?page=1
The only thing that wasn't clear was how to get into the service menu. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the front panel of the TV and press POWER then press VOL+.
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.
