When turning on thr set with the "TV" button, the Guide program menu comes on . This just began two days ago. What gives? By the way, thanks to reair guy for solving my audio problem. RCA F36689 36" TV
SOURCE: RCA 27" TV Guide Plus
If you have the set off, and the cable plugged into the back of the set for a day or so, the guide plus should come back. It will sometimes take up to 48 hours. If it does not, there is a problem with the set and will require servicing. Good Luck

It gives you a step by step instruction on how to turn the Guild off.

I am an electronics technician who just happened have been given the same set as you because it was giving the previous owner the same problem. Since I am confident in my trade, I took the set and diagnosed noise in the remote receivers input to the cpu.
What this means is that a capacitor( or something) wasn't working properly and was either not filtering the noise out or it was introducing noise into the data stream that controls the TV through your remote control.
My fix was to essentially cut out the entire remote control input to the TV. Since I have a directtv box to give me remote control, I don't care if the TV's remote works anyway.
The way I did this was to open up the unit and find the front I/O board were the buttons meet the switches for power,chaennel, volume, etc. On that board there is a plug with white wires and one black wire. The two wires to cut are the one next to the black wire and the one all the way at the other end of the black wire. These two wires are easy to splice back if you do not like the results of this procedure so that there is really no risk of damaging your set. If you wish to verify the proper wires to cut, they are the two wires that come from the IR receiver's side of the board YET DO NOT GO TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH THE BUTTONS! There is one wire that does indeed go to both sides.
This may not be a perfect solution but it is free. I hope that this will help someone out there.

After replacing the flyback transforer and horizontal synch transistor you will need to adjust the flyback transofrmer as follows:
Turn each setting to just above mid point clockwise, turn the tv on and you should see a white screen with retrace lines in it just before the tv turns back off. set yourself up with a plastic screw driver and prepare for adjusting the focus(top adjustment) turn the tv on and adjust the focus by looking at the pixels on the screen. repeat as needed to complete.
Next setup for the brightness (lower adjustment) turn the tv on and adjust the brightness to where the screen appears to be black(no haze or lines). After the tv turns off wait a few seconds and turnit back on, it should stay on, if not then the brightness setting it too far one way or the other and "TecniklyNuts" it correct, the system detects the setting out of range and turns the tv off. Repeat the two adjustments until the system stays on.

You can disable this only by going into the Guide Plus+ menu. If you have the original remote or one that matches the feature, press Guide then Menu (sometimes you need to hold this for a few seconds), navigate to Setup (right arrow until it is highlighted). OK, Menu or the down arrow all let you enter the menu. Then use the up/down arrows to select Review Options. Select Off (only two choices). Press OK and exit the guide.
I hope this helps.

you are that clear
but if you are talking about flashes on the t.v then it is due to sparking is taking place in your plug & socket.
if it is ok then there is a sparking in high voltage section in tv which is called fly back section.
