GE television 32GT740 Guideplus Gemstar

It was working fine yesterday morning. Last night when I went to turn it on for "The practice," it simply wouldn't turn on. When you try to turn the TV on, it makes the initial "turn on sound," then 3-4 clicks -- no picture, no sound. The only thing different that occured in the course of events was that the light switch on the wall was turned off - the TV/cable/VCR are plugged into the a plug that the wall switch is attached to...I flipped the switch to power up the electronics and the TV was broken.

I realize that this is likely something that will most likely require profession repair, but I would like to ask anyway...is there something about the TV having zero power for a few hours that caused a "glitch," that is possible to "tweak" and "repair" myself?

Otherwise, any ideas what the problem might be as I pursue repair? Bad time of year to deal with this new expense. Would like some pseudodiagnostics. :)

What bothers me most, is I have a generic brand TV that is going on 12, yet my 4-year-old GE kicks the bucket. Do all GE TVs stink?

RCA Guideplus gold gemstar analog or digital


Most of the RCA GuidePlus Gold gemstar TVs worked with analog TV signals (NTSC) only. The Guide+ information was only broadcast in NTSC signals and is no longer being provided. If you can check the date of manufacture of the TV, you can use the size to check if it had an ATSC tuner added if it was made for the US market. 37"+ TVs had to have a digital tuner in second half of 2005. 25" TVs needed to have the ATSC tuner after March, 2006. The next year all TVs had to have a digital tuner.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the TV, if you would like me to confirm the tuner information on your set.

(The RCA F31317 TV with Guide+ was manufactured in 2000 and thus only has a NTSC tuner.)

ok, make it sure that the outlet is working by plugging-in like electric fan and if it works call a certified tech to check your TV(you cannot do that by yourself:( )...make it sure that your TV is not 4 years or older 'coz those outside tech they charge too much and it's better to buy a new one :)

How do I remove the guide plus from coming on at power up?


I found the solution!

With the remote, press the Guide button. This should bring up the Guide Plus+ screen. Press the right arrow to move the cursor all the way to set up and it will ask, "What would you like to do?" Arrow down to "Review Options" and press OK.
The first question is, "Guide Plus+ System Auto Display? On / Off"
Arrow down to Off and press OK.

Older GE television sound trouble


The first thing to check is the push button assembly maybe the volume down button has been pushed in too hard/far and is always making contact,sometimes when we clean the face of the tube water drips down in thru the edge of the frame in the buttonts,corrosion sets in and creates a short,if you are familiar with tv service you can chech the buttons thru the inside to make sure they are not pushed in but if you are not famliar be safe and call for assistance froma servicer.
