Question about GE 31GT740 31" TV

1 Answer

I have no control over the channel selection; the channel keeps changing and I'm powerless to stop it. The issue is not with the remote; the same thing happens if I attempt to tune to a channel manually on the front of the set. (I'm trying to get it to stick on channel 3 so that my DirecTV will appear normally.)

The problem is likely with your front panel control buttons - the CH up button (tact switch) is stuck on (shorted or changed value). In order to temporarily correct the problem remove the Ch up switch that is located on the front panel control board - it would have to be unsoldered- and then when one is available replace the "tact" switch.

Ihave spn 4235 plsama tv problem is keep scan channel and rase the valume by self also icanot use the remote control to use the tv for on and off just plug and unplug the wire power need help plz


First take the Batteries out of your remote control to see if the T.V. is still changing channels or not. If it stops changing the channels and volume, try opening the remote with a knife and clean all the pads with rubbing alcohol to prevent sticking buttons. Be careful if using a remote with a roller ball.

My radio skips over a channel and I'm not sure why. Can you help?


There are two main areas to look at, one is signal strength. Many units have a threshold that is will allow stations to be selected. if the signal is weak, the tuner will not stop there.
The other common issue is Genra selection. If you have selected Rock, and the station that you want has listed something else, that will stop tuner from stopping on that station.

Remote up & down channel buttons will only bring up a few channels. Cannot go through all channels unless I punch in digits on remote


Which Dish model receiver and remote? You likely have a custom guide selected that only includes those channels. On most models, press guide twice and select a different guide or press Favorites to Modify List of the channels in the current guide. If in doubt select All Sub or All Channels to see more/too many channels with up/down. I use All HD for seeing the high-def channels. Otherwise I use a custom list to see a bigger listing. -Ken

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

Channels keep changing


Make sure there is no other remote control working simultaneously or with a key pressed constantly by mistake. In my case i found the air conditioning remote control with one key being pressed by my furniture next to my bed, it was causing that erratic behavior. As soon i realized, i stopped that remote control and problem solved. I hope this works.

After programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!


you need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.
