Question about GE 31GT740 31" TV

1 Answer

GE 31GT740 We need help. TV will turn start cycling thru channels. Before we had fios tv it would even change the cable channel. Now it cycles--sometimes slowly but most times rapidly. Then it will turn itself on and off. Now have the TV on an extension cord with on/off switch. It was turning itself on no matter if cable box is on or not. Took it in for service and the repair place kept it for a month. Did none of the described actions. We got it back and it did not do it's poltergist routine for two months. It then did it for a month and stopped. Eight months later it started again. Moved the TV to a different location in the house. Thought maybe someone had a computer router. Same actions. Would love to get it fixed or should I call the Salvation Army to pick up? We have had the set since Jan 2003.

You may have a sticking button on your front control panel. Sometimes they become intermittent and cause crazy things to happen. I've found this in RCA tv's and GE's are made by the same manufacture. Stargazer

Hi, i was trying to turn down the volume on my tv (its an insignia) and i accidentally hit the channel button and i think it messed up the programming of my tv to my cable box. what should i do?


try setting the tv to channel 3 or 4. if that does not work, try finding a "input" or "source" or video" button on the remote and cycle thru them, this should get you back up and running. remember to have the cable box turned on during this so youll see when it comes back on.

If the TV works in the "Other" modes than I would suspect, that the FIOS HDTV box has developed some fault. When a TV goes to a "Blue Screen" this means that it cannot interpret a proper signal, maybe you need to reset the FIOS, anyway check that out, the TV itself, I do NOT think is faulty, check connections, antenna and to TV as well. Unplug ALL from wall wait 5 mins, and power back up, this often fixes a lot or problems.

R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.

We have a similar problem when changing channels/surfing, the TV will begin to power cycle, until you unplug THE CABLE TV input, then it will turn on again and stay on as you rehook the cable and change channels....till it decides to do it again, DTV channels seem to trip it up, but not sure....if I leave it on the same channel it will run for days. Yep and the cable TV is grounded outside
