SOURCE: Sharp Aquos turns itself off

How many times per second does the POWER led blink? (dont worry about the OPC).

1x per second (constant, steady blink) = bad inverter/lamps
2x per second = bad power supply
3x per second = bad main board

You can buy the parts online and fix if yourself!!

SOURCE: The volume is turning itself down all by itself. The volume on the remote won't work, but the remote is fine with the other TV controls.

It sounds like the button is stuck. Take the remote apart if you can and see if the key is stuck somewhere. This happened to me once with a rubber key type of remote. It drove me crazy.

SOURCE: TV won't turn on w/either the remote or power button

Most likely your powerboard. Inside those are capacitors that are known to "pop". They have been widely used in many newer tv/monitor units since around '97 I believe. Anyway, Some problems with these things are a little harder to figure out, but a problem that shows a light(flashing/blinking/on for while/off for while) is to my new found knowledge a bad capacitor or 2 in your powerboard. I found a 19" lcd monitor2_bing.gif that didnt come on, but the power light is on. I bummed then googled it and found this to be a VERY common problem! I watched a video on youtube2_bing.gif how to fix your monitor and openend mine. I found 1 bad capacitator(bad caps show a buldging top and/or fluid leaking from them. one trip to Radioshack and $1.59 The problem was fixed! A rapair man woul;d order your board, install it and charge you around $300 or more. You could change your board yourself(saves money) or you could open your unit and inspect it yourself first, your fix could be $5 or less!....There are many pic etc to be found on google image for "popped" capacitors(caps), also there are video's on how to replace them on youtube...I hope this helps some

Magnavox tv , when turned on the volume goes to cero by itself and control wont work on it

Make sure the batteries in your remote are new. Unplug the TV power for about a minute. Plug TV power in. Turn TV on and try remote again. If no luck, make sure no other IR devices are in the room and turn off any lights and try again. If no luck, try a new remote. If no luck. your TV may need to be serviced.

TV turns off RANDOMLY

Funny thing happened to me too.
as a satellite installer i found that l.e.d. lights (Red) mostly can trigger remote codes. and some times other receivers in the same room can also.

power off all but the receiver that has the problem try them one by one till you find the one causing the issue.
make sure all l.e.d. are off in that room.

You might need to get this checked with the manfucaturer, looks like a malfunctioning remote control. Or you can just replace the remot and see if that helps.

TV is often turned off when some parts of the circuits got too hot. You should try to use a room fan to cool the back of the TV and see if it improves by itself before you try to fix the TV. Overheating is often caused by condensation, which also can be dried by a room fan slowly move the air..

Check your remote batteries.

I had a TV remote that would do some weird things when the batteries were dying, like the problems you describe.

TV turns on by itself

Being so new and still under warranty you should call the manufacture for answers,sometimes they have updates to install in the brain (software)of the set and they would send someone to do it.You might not be the only one with this problem.Custumer service for lcd tv's is 866-287-5555.

This could be a remote problem, try it while the remote it out of range/no batts if so just replace the remote. Pull the batteries out of the remote - fixed? Then: Check the switches, sometimes people clean the set and fluid drips down corrodes the hidden switches and some components near them. If not that check continuity of the switches Another thought, is if you have compact floresent lamps in the room, these can cause some IR interference that can trigger events on your remote control input. last, does anyone near you has the RCA TV? mybe other remote is effecting your TV...
