tv  why


Question by  CrazyCat (29)

Why does my RCA tv come on and off by itself?


Answer by  SimonLevy (7)

Usually this is due to a problem with the front control board. There is likely to be a bad connection in one or more of the tact switches. Alternatively the remote sensor could be defective.

At the risk of sounding ridiculous, as long as you've had it checked mechanically and found nothing wrong, I would say the there's the possibility that it may be haunted.

Sounds like the front control board has gone bad, leading to a bad connection that would cause your television to turn off and on periodically.

There are multiple reasons this could be happening. It is possible that a chip inside of the television is offset. Another possible problem is that the button itself is broken. The best way to find out is by taking it to a local repair shop.

There are a few possibilities. The power button on the television might be stuck. The TV might also just be old and is malfunctioning. As televisions get older connections and wires wear away. You might also be sitting on the remote control. Also consider the possibility that your house might be haunted.

I had the same problem with an old Samsung. Drove me nuts. I figured the television set was just old. Then I realized the button on the remote was stuck!
