Grundig TV turns itself on

Remove power for a day and see if the processor resets. It seems to be only due to the timer as the TV can be triggered only from the internal timer to power ON.Try and reset all the timer settings , switch power off completely and it must cancel all settings.

Stand by timer shuts tv off after 30 sec sony tv

Sounds more like it's been set to do that. Use the following to shut off the timer mode. It's possible that the set is set to the wrong time of day but that is unlikely. You can shut off the timer mode using the on screen menu. Follow the instructions below.

Using the Timer Menu
Current Time Set your TV to the current day and time. Press to open the Current
Time menu:
1 Use the F or f buttons to enter the correct day and time, then press
2 Press to exit the menu.
Timer 1 and
Timer 2
Use the timers to program your TV to turn on and off by day, time,
duration, and channel. The timer duration is a maximum of six hours.
When the channel is fixed, it is not necessary to set the channel.
1 Use the F or f buttons to highlight Timer 1 or Timer 2, then press
2 Use the F or f buttons to enter the desired day, start time, duration,
and channel, then press . The timer status should be On when the
Timer has been set, and the timer light on the front panel of the TV
should be on.
3 Press to exit the menu.
? When you perform Auto Program, Timer 1 and Timer 2 settings will be cleared. Also, in the event of
any loss of power, Current Time, Timer 1, and Timer 2 settings will be cleared

  3. Enter the first three-digit TV code for your Sharp from the list which follows:
    093, 165, 039
    These codes are listed in order of popularity, and the green light will blink twice if you perform this procedure correctly.
  4. Aim Tune In at your TV and press Power. Your TV should turn off. If it does not, repeat steps 2-5, trying each code listed in step 4 until you find the one that operates your TV.
Now Test Your TVWhy test? Many times more than one code appears to work. Testing is desirable to be sure you have the correct code for your TV or the other devices you are setting up.
  1. Press the Power key to turn on the TV, then press mute, channel scan ("CH") and volume ("VOL") keys. Tune channels 7 and 11 by entering the number followed by the Enter key.

Set turns off

The first thing that springs to mind is the "Sleep Timer" is active.. ON, it needs to be set to OFF, have a look in ya manual regarding ya Sleep Timer setting.. That may indeed be ya problem. If that ain't it.. then ya got some sort of "Protection" circuitry coming into play it sounds like...& OR a Component starting to fail when it heats up. With these latter ones, it is gonna be a job for the "Shop". If it is, ensure ya get a firm "Quote" and an explanation of what was done etc.
