Panasonic TC-L42E30 Turns On Automatically

Every morning between 630-7am, my tv turns on. I've checked all the functions for auto-on features and they all say off. Ive left the batteries out of the remote to test the remote and that didnt work. What other options do I have?

What else is in that room that could send a signal to the television?

Posted on Nov 24, 2013

Testimonial: "Nothing else is the room sends a signal. I have my PC right next to my tv. I have a 3DS and my cell phone on the same desk. Those would be the only things transmitting an actual signal."

Panasonic viera TC-L32X2 TURNS ON BUT IS REALLY DARK you can barely see anything what would be the problem

The backlights are probably failing. Your TV uses fluorescent tubes for light. The control boards that operate the lights are most likely giving you the problem.

White light coming from bottom area of screen in a couple of palces.

This often happens when the logic board or the screen itself is is about to give in. Some times it can be a build up of static which does happen with these HDTV's, Try the following
  • Plug the TV directly into the wall, no extensions or adapters
  • Turn off the wall socket
  • Press and hold the power button on the TV in for about 30 seconds
  • Turn on the power at the wall back on and check you TV
This is called a static discharge and often will fix issues like this. If you still have this issue you may have to take it to a repairer.

Tv turns on for two seconds, shuts off, begins binking.

The problem is most likely a power supply related problem.
The TV is in protection mode right now. It's keeping the other parts inside the TV from being damaged by automatically turning itself OFF. The 9 blinks should be an error code for the problem with the power supply. I don't have the Service Manual for your TV model number to tell you what the code means and which part to replace. Every brand of TVs have a different meanings of the code.
If you have electronic experience, you can find a factory repair manual over the internet. Normally, it's called a Service Manual. It costs about less than $20.
