Greetings and Welcome to JustAnswer.

I am Andrew your Support Technician with over 30 years of experience, it can be very frustrating when electronic devices go wrong but from my experience misconfiguration are usually the problem and they can be quickly resolved with the right advice and assistance. Please allow me a few moments to investigate, I will respond at the earliest either requesting more information or providing further information.

I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to your Television which is in a constant cycle of turning on and off. I have found a TV that turns itself on or off isn't necessarily broken. A simple, easily fixed problem is usually the culprit. There might be a stuck power button on the remote, or the remote's batteries are running low. An internal timer might accidentally be set to turn on the TV. 


  1. I would recommend the things to check is;

  2. A stuck power button on the remote.

  3. Remote's batteries are running low.

  4. Internal timer.

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
