I do not know how old your tv is, but I can tell you that if it is more than a couple of years old, the back cover needs to be taken off and blown out with clean compressed air. If your tv has quiet cooling fans on the back, they are notorious in all plasmas and lcds 32" and above for attracting dust and lint from the ambient air. This along with moisture will cause the dust, lint and moisture to settle on critical components that cause tiny static discharges between components that can produce what you described. Another thing is and this is from my own experience is that even the tiniest pest like a roach or a spider, like I said depending on the age of the tv, can cause similar problems my traversing across the components. I had an RCA that would turn on by itself and change channels by itself. All in all the one thing you can do yourself is clean it out of all dust and debri. Good luck and God bless you. Robert

Bush free view system switches on during the night


This doesn't sound like any problem i have heard before, there are usually other problems associated with it, your probably better off turning it off at the mains anyway but if you don't check the batteries in the remote and that the remote is away from animals that could accidently turn it on

kind regards

T.V. abducted by aliens!


The controller eprom is in a fatal error and cannot be repaired. The pink indicates that a channel in the LVDS interface is gone and that cannot be repaired. This most likely is caused by a failure in the LCD module itself which then shorted out the driver on the main board. If your unit is under warranty, take it in as the LCD panel itself should be covered.

Good luck
