    GE 31GT740 31" TV volume control increases on its own even without the remote. Any suggestions?

  • sincitysneak Apr 29, 2009

    My GE 31GT740 31" TV started exhibiting the same behavior last night. We had been watching TV during the course of the evening and turned it off to get ready for bed. An hour or so later, after trying with no luck to get to sleep, I decided to watch TV again, but when I pressed the power button on the remote, I got the exact symptoms that BOJUNIOR did, and, a day later, still more of the same. I'm wondering if its even worth fixing? Thanks for the help!!

The GE (actually RCA) 31GT740 uses the CTC203 series chassis. The first thing I would do is resolder the coil on the base of the horizontal output transistor and the pins of the horizontal drive transformer, as well as any other solder joints on the main PC board that look weak or cracked. 9 times out of 10 that cures the symptoms you described. If you do not have experience soldering parts on PC boards then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

the tv need for servicing, the cause is either bad regulator transistor in the power supply section or shorted horizontal output transistor. that is why the main circuit board doesn't get to turn on. to do the repair just ensure you have knowledge in repairing tv.

My dish remote will not work with my naxa tv


Hey sevenwindham,

If the remote won't work it may need to be programmed to the TV. You can personally look at the steps in the link below, just look up the model of your remote. The steps to program your remote are also provided

http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/remote-setup

Addressing Remote to TV:

1.) Press and hold the clear TV button until all mode lights light up.
2.) Release and TV light will be blinking.
3.) Enter code and press #.
4.) Try functions (Volume, Power, etc..) and see if working.
5.) If no function, repeat steps 1-4 with another code.

If that doesn't work you can also try the Power Scan listed below.

Power Scan:

1.) With the TV on, press and hold the desired mode button (about six seconds) on top of the remote until all mode button backlights come on, then release.
2.) Press 0 then press STAR (*) and press and release the Power button.
3.) Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the TV. If the code for the TV comes up, the TV will power off.
4.) Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

If you have any other questions let me know!

When I turn on my set, light turns green, then after 30 seconds turns red won't come on


Sounds like there is a problem with the power supply. Try unplugging the T.V. and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Plug the T.V. back in and see if that helps. If it doesn't try switching to another outlet, and if that doesn't work then you may need to replace the power supply which would probably cost anywhere from 140 to 200 for one.

I have a Philips 52PFL7422D/37 52" TV. For the last year now the TV will make a clicking sound like it is turning on but never does. After a couple of seconds to a minute the TV makes another...


I have the same model and the same problem... I am told the power display board is is the issue and may need to replacing. New board costs around $80,or a bad capacitor depending on your paitence.

When I press the 'power' button, I hear it click, but no picture comes on. I hear it click a couple more times, then it stops.


If it clicks then goes to standby, then the fault is in your power supply circuit. If the sound comes on then the fault is in the line timebase circuit. Aquick way to check the line circuit is to place the back of your hand about 1" from the screen as you switch on, you will feel the hairs on your hand standing to attention.

1. Hold [menu] and [vol-] button on the side of the TV

3. blue light comes ON and stays ON
4. wait 10 seconds then let go of [menu] and [vol-]
5. wait another 30 seconds and some type of picture should appear

I think this is right. I got it from the JVC call centers guys so sorry if I missed or messed up a step.

GE 31GT740 clicks off and on


Dead, led flashing red/green at first, then going to red standby
Replace C604 (1000uF, 16v) elec. cap. It is in the decoupling circuit for the 5 volt supply
Reverts to standby from switch on via TV or Video
No 5v rail because FET MTP3055 o/c. (BUZ71 will do nicely)
Goes straight to standby, after a quick burst of power
Replaced R952 (39K), had gone slightly high
