Question about Zenith C27V22 27" TV

Cannot turn television off without unplugging

For whatever reason my model will not turn off.  I've used the remote, pushed the on/off button on the television and nothing works.  The only way to turn it off is by unplugging it at the power source but when I plug it back in instead of it needing to be turned on it automatically turns itself back on no matter how long I leave it unplugged.  Help!!

It might be due to on/off switch failure.

I have a small magnavox HDTV. I unplugged it to watch it in another room. The next day when I moved it back into the living room I turned it on. Every time I try changing the channel it changes the source...

Is it a multi-function remote? If it is, make sure you've punched the TV button before using it. Also, make sure none of the buttons on the remote or the TV have accidentally been pushed down and are stuck.

Toshiba 32A42A - Menu options pop up all by themself, and the TV is making its own choices. Can this be fixed or do I call a Preist for an exercism or just get rid of it ?

I had the exact same problem yesterday. It took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to find a solution. Here is the solution: It is not a stuck button or the television being 'posessed' that is resulting in the menu cycling. It is the fact that the television is in the DEMO mode. I was able to read the manual for this television online at the Toshiba website. On page 30 it states 'To stop the DEMO mode press 'recall', ''exit', or 'power'. Unfortunately the 'recall', and 'exit' button are on the original remote which I no longer have. The power button on my model is broken. I use the cable box to 'turn on the television'. In reality, the TV is never off, it is just showing a black screen when the cable box and DVD player is off. I suspect this defect in the power button has occured on other TV's experiencing this problem. I was able to push the broken power button to the inside and side of the television casing exposing a round circle that the power button pushes when the power button is not broken. I pushed this small circle to turn the television off. After about 5 seconds I pushed the button again and the television went on without the annoying menu popping up. Just unplugging the television and plugging the television back in does not work. You need to be able to push the power button, or one of the other 2 buttons on the remote previously mentioned.
Also on page 30 it explains how to activate the DEMO mode. It's not too hard to accidentally do, especially when you have kids pushing buttons haphazardly.
I hope this helps someone outthere in cyberspace! Kevin

buy the radio shack "6 in 1" remote. It is absoluetly amazing. picked up all my codes, and actually uses voice commands to step you thru the process. It is the only remote I could find without spending 100 bucks or more that worked for my sylvania, and at only 15 bucko's, you can't beat it.
