Question about GE 32GT740 32" TV

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 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?

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.
