My best answer is check with your local TV shop for any service manuals. Most TV companies do not sell parts or information to consumers. This is true for RCA/GE as well. You can google search your TV model and see if you can find any info.
Yes it is called an EEPROM IC chip that needs to be replaced. Very comon to fail on these types of sets. GE owned RCA back the 1990's now funai owns both along with magnavox and parts may be hard to get.
The GE (actually RCA) 32GT740 uses the CTC203 series chassis. The most common problem in that chassis is a coil connected to the base of the horizontal output transistor comes loose, and the set may run sometimes and then it will shut off by itself. If you keep trying to run the set with the solder joints cracked on that coil then the horizontal output transistor will short out and the power supply will squeel when plugged in. Do not plug the set in if it squeels as this could eventually cause major problems in the power supply. The set needs a new horizontal output transistor and a good resoldering of the drive coil, drive transformer and all related parts. If you do not have experience in unsoldering and soldering electronic components in TV's then have a qualified tech handle it for you.
