My brother gave me his GE Guide Plus Gemstar TV. We don't have a clue what Guide Plus is and can't get the tv past the set up screen. Is there a way to turn off the guide plus system and just use it as a regular tv? Is the remote the problem?

Older set and prone to bad High Voltage Transformers and other problems--may or may not be worth repair---if won't come on anything from a fuse to a major part and some parts just may not be available any more for this model.
your have problem with the system IC's which store the channel and all the control in the TV or it can be remedy by soldering the pin of the IC's if the problem persist well your have to replace that system.
1.)This set should have the date on the back of it; it should be a a 2003 model.
2.) You may be able to find a user manual by google on the internet.
3.) The part number for the G link is:
238293 and it is no longer available(about a 16 dollar item)--you may be able to find someone on Ebay who has it----these sets with the guide plus never worked very well. 4.) I do this here for free so if this information helps you--take a minute and give me a vote here.
This is For Guide Plus that comes with ATI TV Tuners
I got this in an e-mail from Macrovision and IT WORKS!!!
I deleted the files they said, and got a new error message, so I reinstalled Guide plus, left out that step, and GUIDE PLUS IS BACK!!

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.
i hope this helps. on the tv, press menu, then channel up or down to "screen", then menu;
then channel up or down for adjust projection tv(6), then press menu;
then use the volume up and down, as well as the channel up and down until each of the 3 colors are lined up. press menu after each color i slined up to go to the next color.
hope this helps.
Yep ... just figured this out myself today. When the Guide screen is up, navigate thru the options to Setup. Then select Review Options. You then get to a screen that gives you the option to turn of the system auto display.
