I have a 50" philips magnavox tv that changes channels on it own and turns itself on frequently. What is causing this issue?

Do you live with someone who likes practical jokes; even silly ones?

There are a number of companies that make remotes that can mess with someones TV or other remote devices.
I have a watch, as a gag, that will self program its remote to operate any TV capable of this feature. With this watch, I can change channels, power status and even reset the TV to factory default state.
Next time this happens, look behind you.

Is there a prankster nearby thast has a remote tuned to your set? As a young lad I used to play this trick on my neighbors daughter.

I got it stuck on the porn channel how do i fix it before my wife gets home?

Begin by turning the tv off for five minutes. Then use the remote to turn on the tv and change channels. If by chance this doesn't work just tell your wife that you have no idea how the tv got on that terrible channel : ^ )

the button cluster in the front may have a bad tack switch(button) or the buttons may have loose connections. you can take the speaker grill off and look for wires..unplug your tv first:) also if you use spray cleaner that may have seeped into the button cluster may be able to get the cluster as a whole from a local tv repair shop and put it in labor charges:)

My tv is changing channels on its own and when i turn the tv off, it turns back on...seriously.only way to stop it is to unplug the tv.

Though you have not mentioned model and brand of your tv so I can offer a tip only here.
Check in what order tv changes its channels, like if its in forward order, +Preset or +Channel knob would be stuck. If its changing in reverse order, check -Channel knob at front of tv.
Hope this info would be helpful.
Thank you.

My Vizio plasma TV won't change channels with the remote or side buttons, but if I input a channel number, it will change that way.

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then doing an auto channel search through the menu button. That has solved my problem, at least for the time being.

TV keeps changing channels by itself

Either the channel up or down buttons on the tv are most likely stuck.

Tv turns on manually, but auto flips through channels and you can't use remote

Found this in another forum ( and it fixed my remote problem:

"'s possible that one of the front panel buttons is "stuck" or shorted, and this could cause the TV to ignore commands from the front panel or remote. But this should also cause the Power command to be ignored, too. You might try pulling off the front panel and disconnecting the front panel buttons and then see if the remote works."
