I would guess the popping/cracking goes away when the picture is present. Sounds like a high voltage arc either withing the tube or due to a cracked component in the high voltage circuit. If it's the tube, then the question is: how old is the set and is it worth it to sink $$$ into it as opposed to putting the same into another unit. If it is a defective component, that's much easier/cheaper to repair. Again, age of the set, etc. I hope this helps; definitly a repair for a pro.

RCA Guideplus gold gemstar analog or digital

Most of the RCA GuidePlus Gold gemstar TVs worked with analog TV signals (NTSC) only. The Guide+ information was only broadcast in NTSC signals and is no longer being provided. If you can check the date of manufacture of the TV, you can use the size to check if it had an ATSC tuner added if it was made for the US market. 37"+ TVs had to have a digital tuner in second half of 2005. 25" TVs needed to have the ATSC tuner after March, 2006. The next year all TVs had to have a digital tuner.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the TV, if you would like me to confirm the tuner information on your set.

(The RCA F31317 TV with Guide+ was manufactured in 2000 and thus only has a NTSC tuner.)

I was just given a 36-inch RCA Gemstar Guideplus Gold TV. I do not have cable and am unable to tell if it is digital or not. I've been told it is less than 6 years old. It is a tube TV.

RCA made only two 36" televisions between 2004 - 2010 and neither one of them have digital (ATSC) tuners. They made ZERO CRT televisions before that with digital tuners.

I have a RCA Home Theatre, gemstar guideplus gold. I think it is a 52" rear projection. I just want to know is it a HD TV?

It does not have an HD or ATSC tuner. But it does have HD resolution inputs - ie HDMI and component video (RGB) so effectively it is HD

Can anybody help me disable the Guide+ on my 52" RCA TV?

When you first turn your cable tv on go to the customer menu and turn off the G+, you should find it in your set-up section.
