Question about GE VG2050 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Not a good signal

First of all the model I have is not listed so this model is the closest one to it. The Model I have is GE VG2016. I know it is an older model but hope you can help. I am having a problem with the cable signal going through the vcr. I get a snowy picture on the TV. Especially the lower channels it is hardly visable. I disconnected the VCR and hooked up to cable directy to the TV and it works great. This has coming on for a long time but recently it is getting worse. Any suggestions? Chas

You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input. The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially. Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.

Have model jvm1740sm1ss ...keypad has shorted ...cant seem to find parts for this model even on ge site

This should be the correct parts listing for the model number you have provided:

http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model.php?mn=JVM1740SMSS01&man=&mid=&brand=GEH&pmid=0


Here is another part listing which is a slight variation of your model. The part numbers are still the same, however:

http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model.php?mn=JVM1740SM2SS&man=&mid=&brand=GEH&pmid=0


I believe the model number should read "JVM1740SMSS01". If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

If these links do not work, go to pcappliancerepair.com.

I need to install my ge minicam pro 98756 but i lost the disk

There isn't a model listed for 98756 specifically, so you might want to try one of the MiniCam Pro drivers at:

Try to pick the one closest to your model number.
Good Luck!

I need the tv code for a universal remote, im reaaaaalllly sick of getting up and changing the channel myself

we would have to know the model number of the tv and the universal remote to give you a number ... the older universal remotes have a 3 digit code .. i have found many things that dont work with these ... the newer ones have a 4 digit code and work (or partiallly work) with a lot more products.. the code list comes with the remote or sometimes you can get them over the internet .. .. i do have the list for older and newer GE remotes .. there are many codes for various models of GE televisions .. so you need a model number .. at least how old it is .. and what remote you are using .. i will look .. maybe there are few enough codes that i can publish them all .. you would have to try them one at a time ...
