I have a Sharp LCD that keeps changing inputs and will randomly turn itself on.

Sounds like you have another infared source that the LCD is seeing. Put opaque tape over the infared receiver and see if the issue continues. Look for another IR device in the area.

My TV keeps turning itself on/off at random times, sometimes it works, then turns itself off, and flashes on and off! Its becoming really frustrating as it seems to only work when it wants to for a short...

This could be caused by poor ventilation on the unit. The back of TV sets where the air vents are usually located are meant to be easily accessible to air. When they do not have enough air then the Tv tends to shut itself down due to overheating when it geths too hot.
Try relocating the TV position to an airy environment.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
