OK, was there any storm in area that might caused this problem in TV?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

no, but think next door have something that interfers as I have just had tv on and the set was switching on and off, then the volume started to go up on its own, the display menu came up and the options were being selected on its own!

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
This is odd and electric interference could be a cause of this issue, is it possible for you to take the TV somewhere else in house and turn it On to see how it works?

Sure, please take your time.

have moved the tv to another area in the room, so far so good, will keep you posted thanks

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Sounds good Rose, so it was electric interference causing the problem in TV and it is working fine on new location (away from electric distortion area).
Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.
