Set turns itself on for no reason (and sometimes off)
I had Dish Network installed the other day. Not sure if they are related, but ever since then, whenever I turn off the tv, about 10-15 minutes later, it will turn itself back on. Also, like some other owners, it will sometimes turn itself off, but rarely, especially compared to it powering up every time. I have tried turning off the HD receiver as well, but the set will still power on automatically. The set is only about 5 years old. What the!?

Hi Meagan, my name is Cheri Torres and I work with DISH Network Internet
Response Team. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could
help. Connecting your TV to your DISH Network receiver should be
fairly easy, depending on the connections you are using. If you are
using an HDMI cable you will need to connect one side of it to your TV and the other end into your DISH receiver, as long as you have an HD
receiver. If you do not have an HD receiver you are probably going to
want to use composite cables(red, white and yellow). If you are using
either of these cables you are going to have to set your TV to an input
in order to receive the DISH picture. You can select an input by finding
a button on the TV remote or the TV itself that is listed as input,
source, AUX, mode or video. You will need to cycle through each one
until you find the DISH picture on one of them. Once you have the
picture you will need to press SAT on your DISH remote and everything
should be working fine from there. I hope this information is useful and
if you have further questions feel free to ask!
Hi my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see youhave DISH Network HD the hdmi does not work. Depending on what the TV is set to;480, 480i, 720, 1080i will depend on what you have your receiver set to. Afteryou check your TV settings press the buttons of Menu-6-8 and it will take youto HDTV Setup. Make sure your TV settings match your DISH Network HD settings;if you have anymore questions please e-mail me at Michael.email@example.com.

There are a few things that you could do for this. You could try a different type of cable. Such as, if you are currently using RCA cables, either try another RCA cable in its place, as the cable may be going bad, or try another type of cable, such as coax. You will also want to make sure that you are using the correct input/channel. If you are at TV1, you will want to make sure that the tv is on channel 3 or 4, and sometimes an input, such as video 1 or 2. If you are at TV2, you will want to make sure that the tv is on channel 60 or 73. You will also want to make sure that the other components are powered off while watching the DISH Network.
I am going to assume this is a self install meaning you just got a new tv. If you have an HD receiver connected with red/blue/green wires ensure that you also use a set of red/white from the same TV output on receiver to the same audio input on the TV that you have the other wires ran to as the RED/BLUE/GREEN only carry a video signal. Some poor quality HDMI cables will also require the same red/white wires to gain audio as they do not always function properly. Other than that I can think of no other reason you should not be receiving audio other than internal speaker in tv being turned off. This usually is true when a surround sound is in use but the dish receiver was not integrated into the surround but the TV itself. I hope this is of some assistance to you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of anymore assistance please let me know.
go to you menu settings and be sure speakers are turned on and are not set to external,if this does'nt fix remove your dish input to see if you have noise comming through with no picture only snow, if yes the dish is the problem.
check and see if your remote control is not near the set and something is squeezing it.if not your power supply have a shorted component probably the regulator or other related component kindly have a tech check it out
