GE rf modulator cat number AV 20182

This modulator just stopped working. Do they "burn out"? Is there anything I can do to test it or fix it? Or do I just replace it?

Sounds like you are getting RF feedback... this is because it is a lower quality RF Modulator. You could try to get some "Ferrite" "Rings" or Snap on "Blocks" and put the around the cables to mitigate this, or you could try somehow making sure all the earths are good. Reorientate the RF box further away,, even try wrapping it in Aluminium Foil.

How to install DVD player on GE Model 19GT270 TV


To hook a DVD player to this model, you'll need an RF modulator (also called an RF converter). You can find one at most retailers where they sell TVs, and also online from places like Amazon.com.

Without the AV jacks, the only way the TV can pick up anything is with its tuner. An RF converter takes the audio and video signals from the DVD player and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that the set can tune in. Unfortunately this does reduce the picture quality some, but on older TV sets it's the only option.

Can i hook up a dvd player to it and if so what cord do i need?


Standard DVD players cannot be connected to this TV because it does not have an AV input. It has only RF input. So you will have to buy an AV to RF Modulator (converter) to connect a DVD player.

XBox wont work on it? Its hooked to the Av in/output but it wont pick up on channel 3 or 4 I dont have a remote.


To work on channel 3 or 4, you need a RF modulator from AV component input. Otherwise just select the AV input on your TV to use it(Xbox).

I am trying to connect a DVD player to a RCA F25216BC 25" TV - the TV only has an F type Coax connector and does not have a CH 3 or 4 switch - I put the input from the wall to the DVD player and out to the...


Your TV must be equipped with AV inputs (RCA jacks - yellow, white, red)
in order to connect this unit. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you will need a RF Modulator to connect the DVD recorder to your TV's
antenna/cable input. RF Modulators are available at
major electronics retailers such as Radio Shack or Wal-Mart and allow the 3 RCA outs from the recorder to connect to the RF modulator RCA inputs and then you can connect a coaxial cable from the modulator to the TV RF input and select channel 3 or 4 on the TV. The DVD recorder will not pass thru signals to the TV using coaxial cable as far as DVD are concerned.

How to connect a settop box to a tv that has no av


The only thing I can think of is a thing called an RF Modulator. It takes composite Video & Audio, & outputs a "RF Signal" that can be picked up by the TV set It plugs in to the Antenna Socket in TV and you set it to the prescribed Channel, this way you will be able to see your video.
I include the link below to give you an idea of what I am on about. Hope it works for you.

Can't get my DVD player to work...


Your GE TV most likely doesn't have anything but a antenna input on it? If that the case to connect a DVD player you must purchase a RF modulator to convert the video and audio output of a DVD player to a channel 3 or 4 output. Here is a link for one at Radio Shack.

The cable input on the tv


The only thing you can use to utilize the AV connector is to use a cable box or with AV ouputs.
