How could a TV turn itself on when no one is home or in the middle of the night?

This may sound simple, but does it have a timer/alarm feature on it? I had the same problem and it was the timer. It had been accidently set by the kids pushing buttoms. Once we went into the menu and disabled the on/off timer, the problem was solved.

If your TV has a remote control, try replacing the batteries.

When my batteries start to die, the remote sometimes does things on its own (change channels, adjust volume, or turn off).

Being a Electronic Technician, I have seen Sets that have a 1ohm resistor in the circuit that has changed value, and will contribute to this problem..Just one of those things to look for..And probably the most common,if not a remote malfunction. keep remote in another room when going to bed, and make sure the timer isn't set on your tv...if it again turns on by itself, suspect a resistor problem.
