If both tv front panel switch and remote are not working to turn off the tv, try to replace first the epprom IC which is more cheapper than replacing the system ic. A corrupted epprom may also behaving this kind of problem.
Hope this will help.

try using a master reset to fix this.
Sometimes after being used for awhile electronics tend to malfunction.
press and hold these buttons in this order....
power / volume up / channel down.
The tv should shut off after doing this.
Turn it back on manually.
This will reset the TVs internal memory chip.
I dont guarentee this as a permanent fix....but it worked for me.Good luck
It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?
Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions. Mac =)
this unit is dead ,possoble power supply problem. you must have warranty on this unit if its only 8 months old,if not contact place of purchase and ask wath is the life expectancy of their products and your tv set it start them thinking about repairing or replacing.
Tvtek is on the right track. The remote will not solve the problem. Sounds like a voltage regulator in HV circuit if it only lasts a few seconds. If it stays on for a couple of minutes, beam limiter cicuit is pushing to overload and shutting unit down. Magnavox set not hard to repair, but a 27" set is not cost effective to repair either.
