It has a program on it, kind of like an alarm. Go to the settingsto fix it.

Does the TV's indicator light come on or blink when you turn on the tv from the remote? Have you tried to turn the tv on from the TV itself (not using the remote)? You can try turning it on from the TV itself (the on/off buttons on an LCD/LED/Plasma are generally found on the side, or the back of the tv, near a side).

unplug it. usually that works. it gives the tv a chance to reboot itself

if it is a plasma the plasma tube is going out if its a normal or flatscreen have the bulb checked or changed

how can a tv turn itself on when no one is home you either set a timer for your tv to be shut off before you left or your house is haunted. those are the two options. I, too, am baffeled at the fact that my tv has been doing this for a week now. I will put my kids to bed and the hubby goes to work. between 8:30 and 8:45pm every night the tv will turn itself on and there is no one in the room at all. It doesn't matter what channel i have had it on prior to turning it off it will always be on channel 3 USA. Does anyone out there have an explanation for this? this is weirding me out. there is no timer or time set on this tv at all.

You may have something of a one-way router, my friend has that. His dad can on the computer, but then he has to shut his Xbox off. Something of that sort.

It can be loose your television set plug. It can be the settings on your television. Televisions now have power saving modes which mean that when you have not changed a channel or adjusted the volume or the tv gets a close down signal from a tv station then your tv will switch off in to stand by mode.

Go into the menu and look at the SLEEP TIMER. Also if the set is getting too hot it might turn itself off to protect itself. Add a cooling fan.

Chances are that someone nearby has a similar TV or is using a remote on similar settings... or could be as a result of damp or humid air messing with the components

If you mean how do you get a TV show on your TV after you turn off your PS2 you must turn your TV to cable or Ant

It's possible - A TV remote works by using beams of infra-red light to communicate with the receiver in the TV. If sunlight falling on the receiving sensor matches the frequency of the remote, it can turn the set off. It happened to my old TV a few times - until I changed the position of the set !

I had the same problem. I called in someone to fix it but he said its just the way the cable is made

The duration of Fear Itself - TV series - is 2520.0 seconds.

NO, when you turn off the TV, the output of the TV will also go off.

If a person has to turn on their VCR in order to turn on the TV, then the VCR is working as the input and the output. If you do not want this to happen, disconnect the cables from the VCR and directly connect them to the TV.

Say "sister, turn the TV off" !

tv problemtv is broken a plug is not plugged in or you watched a lot and it needs rest. Check the menu, look for the SLEEP TIMER, it could be turned on or the TV is getting to TOO HOT and turning itself off which is what it suppose to do. Is it near a hot spot near a heat source? Set up a fan to blow on it for a test.

you have to be kidding me. you turn it off with either the remote or the butten on the TV. are you that stupid???

I like watching television. Turn off the television and come for supper. Make sure you turn off the television before you go to school.

No. As long as it is plugged in, it will turn itself on, record your program(s), then turn itself off again.
