Turning on and changing channels with no input from remote

We have this TV that out of nowhere started to turn on without actually turning it on and changing channels randomly after it is on.

Re: Turning on and changing channels with no input from...

I had the same problem. Had a technician come out since tv was under warranty. He cleaned the circuit board that controls the front panel, and said it was probably from me cleaning the screen with Windex and having it drip onto the board. Well, it worked for another 2 years before it started doing it again. And I don't clean it like that anymore. Perhaps you can check and see if your board is messed up....hope this helps a bit.

Whenever I turn on the TV it turns on in component input mode therfore forcing me to have to change the input every time I turn on the TV just to watch it! Can you please help me?

There may be an option in the menu section of the T V (may be by using the remote) that is switchable between turning on with last channel viewed, or it is set to turn on to a particular channel or input such as that component input. Hope this helps.

Stuck on channel 2, "No Signal" and snow

Two things may be at play here. The tv might be only programmed for reception on channel 2 and will need to be re programmed to receive other channels.
Also try some basic troubleshooting on the remotes. Start with the remote that came with the tv. Replace the batteries try the "MENU" button. If you can get into the menu try to "autoprogram" the TV

Game Mode

On the TV itself, press the MENU button. When the menu opens, "PICTURE" should be highlighted in pink and the rest of the menu items will be an aqua color. That means you are in the right place....Press the volume "up" button... this will open up the Picture menu items. When the menu opens, start pressing the channel "up" button. You will see (bright, color, etc.) options in this menu. Keep pressing the channel up button until you see "Game Mode"... the options will be ON and OFF. Use the volume "up" and/or "down" buttons to toggle back and forth between ON and OFF... if you want to watch TV, be sure to turn the Game Mode OFF... otherwise the picture will be VERY dark...
