Question about GE 31GT740 31" TV
Assuming your TV continuously changes channels on its own in the upward direction, I had the same problem with my GE 31GT740 TV and fixed myself. GE will give you the runaround and have you calling RCA who has no clue. The cure is simple but, you need someone to help you move the set around. Remove the rear cover by taking out all of the screws – obviously unplug the set first. Then remove the large circuit board by taking the two screws out from the underside. The TV will need to be laid down on the screen side so have a large pillow or blanket laid out. The main circuit board has two side stops that hold it in and then pry it a little. The entire board slides out and you can set it aside. Now, remove the front switch panel assy by depressing the two side stops. Then the circuit board behind the switches can now be removed from the assy. The third button in from the center is the ‘up channel button’. Pry off the small switch soldered to the board behind the ‘up channel button’. Reassemble and the problem will be fixed. In other words, the ‘up channel’ button on the TV set has gone bad.
