GE TV Model 35GT695 - Problem Turning TV ON

Last couple of weeks, the TV will not turn on. After pushing the ON button, sometimes couple of hours later, the TV turns on by itself. Once ON, it will continue working until I turn it off. The next day, I have the same turn ON problem!

Any ideas to what is wrong and how to fix the problem?

(This is a GE TV model 35GT695)

Re: GE TV Model 35GT695 - Problem Turning TV ON

Sounds like a solder problem. Look over the circuit board real good ffor cracked solder joints especially near the flyback and your Horizontal output and regulator transisitors. Could also be a defective capacitor look for signs of bulging or leaking capacitors.

Cant find auxillary channel

You will need a connection to an aux,a VCR, DVD etc. The TV will recognize and display. You may need an original RCA TV remote with an aux button. RCA universal remotes will also sometimes have this. Or in this case press your remote button to 00. Sometimes this will work, or press channel search while playing an aux device, Thanks for listening, Sincerely, Matt.

AUX channel, cant find

If you mean the video input its either with a button or on the remote, or a few of the older GE sets it is located on a channel between 90 and 99.

Look first to see if the set has the GUIDE PLUS LOGO ON THE FRONT OF THE CABINET OR in the menu, if so unplug set and plug it back to get sound back.

Things to check that are easy, look first:

Does set have sound with a DVD etc connected to a rear input?

Does set have a setting for turning the speakers off or to external speaker hookup?

last might be a actual audio circuit problem but I have never seen that in this model.

I have a GE 31" GT740 and it is turning the volume

The problem of your tv is the tact switch it is already dirty and contacts.The vibration of the sounds triggering the tact switch when the sound is producing a bass. Replacing the tact switch will resolve the problem. Good day and best regards.

My GE 35GT695 has lost color and will only show in black & white. However, when I press the menu button the menu shows in color while the screen is still black & white.

the on screen graphics are sourced from red,green ,blue drives,..your fault is with the colour decoder .sorry it is a repair that needs a expert engineer could be dry jointed to test for dry joints try tapping the back cover or bottom of the set ..good luck farr64[colin]

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.
