GE 32GT740 32" TV Problem

The Television worked fine one night. The next morning it just made the clicking sound like it was trying to come on, but no picture! I have tried unplugging it for a few days and replugging it in, but same problem! Now wondering what its gonna cost to fix, and is it worth it?

    Same problem as has already been posted. This occurred to me 26 Oct 08. A clicling on and off again sound but no picture. There is also an over heating, burning smell from the rear.

    im not a tv repair man so have no idea what the flyback transformer is or looks like..

    in my curiousity i did remove the back of the tv and looked at the picture tube thinking that might be the problem.. i figured if it looked blackened that may be the problem, but it looked fine.

    where do i locate the transformer?

    Quick follow-up question:
    What would be the cost to solve this problem, if indeed it is the flyback transformer? I, too, had the same problem happen, around the same time frame. (Does anyone smell Friday-assembly-line issues?)

    Thanks for the feedback

    Same thing, was working then just started clicking and picture went same time. Thought i was sitting on the remote or something at first, but was no where near it!! Is it worth fixing? Only paid around $240 +tx(OPEN BOX) back in '03, so it gave around 5 yrs good service. It was run pretty much all night(EVERY NIGHT!!!) and some day time as well..

    Same problem here also. Only a clicking sound. Tried the remote and manual turn on. Unplug and still not working. Worked fine yesterday and today only clicking. This is weird. A timing issue as they all seem to be going out at the same time.

  • ddcolson Nov 22, 2008

    I was watching television and it clicked off and will not click on manually or electronically by remote. What's very wierd is that we're all having this issue around the same time. This is unbelievable, but I would like to keep my television, so please let me know if there's an easy fix or someone in Houston, TX who can fix it. Ms. Dee

  • eriksanchez Nov 27, 2008

    so how much is it to repair something like the flyback transformer or is it even worth doing considering the tv was only about $300+ five yrs ago..

    It is a great tv and Id hate to just throw it out if the cost of fixing it isnt going to be more than its worth..

    Yeap-same issue here. Worked fine and then just clicking when attempting to power on. Never had any issues before!

OMG - Today is November 22, 2008 and my GE television was working fine. I was actually watching TV and the tv clicked off by itself. I thought, "How Twilight Zone." I can not get it to come back on. If you all can figure out how to fix it, let me know. I want to keep my TV. Ms.Dee

Try checking the flyback transformer. make sure everything is soldered. Be careful when handling the crt retains voltage. even if disconnected.

I awoke this morning to find the sound on my Apex Digital LD4088 LCD tv is dead. The picture is fine, but sound is dead, how do I solve this?

Download the user manual to your TV. Clik here to download it. See whether audio options to it are set right. If all are right, check its speaker. If speaker is OK, the audio output circuit section should be troubleshooted.
If you feel any difficulty in downloading the manual, send your email address to me. I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail.

Just replaced the lamp after 2 years. TV worked

Make sure that the lamp cage is seating well .. then make sure the door is closed properly. there is a door switch and if the door dont close right the switch may be telling the set the lamp is out.
