Turns on when it wants to

My t.v. sometimes works (turns on), and sometimes nothing happens when I use the remote or try turning it on from the t.v. I took it in to get repaired and was charged $80.00, worked fine for about 3 months then it started happening again. What's wrong with this set?

Why does my tv turns on and off by itself?

Sometimes if the batteries are low in the remote this can happen. I've seen it happen because of old garage door openers as well. There could also be a problem with your electrical wiring...whether it's in your tv or in the house wires...
Try the batteries first though.

Our daughter gave us a Toshiba TV and remote. We plug in the TV and hook up the cable,and try to turn on the TV but nothing happens. We can turn on the TV with the TV button,and it works fine,but we would...

If the remote is the original Toshiba remote, it obviously should work the TV. Have you checked to make sure it has good batteries? Also, if old batteries leaked in it at any time there may be corrosion on the battery contacts keeping it from working. Make sure the metal contacts look shiny, not crusty and corroded.

If the remote still doesn't work there are two possibilities. One is that the remote is just bad. You can get a universal remote, set it for Toshiba and try it. It will at least control power, channel and volume functions. If the universal remote doesn't work, the remote sensor in the TV would be the probable cause. Like any other part, they can sometimes fail.

Won't turn on emediately

Something's out of whack, especially if it does it when manually turning it on. TV repair shop, or new TV. TV's are not usually repairable by anyone but specialists. They are dangerous to fool with otherwise.

TV Volume turns down by itself - Philips 29PT8319 Matchline 27"

Most likely the volume down button on the front of the TV or the switch that it activates is sticking. Should be an easy fix otherwise.
