Re: Power comes on by it'self

Change the batteries in your remote and face it away from the TV. When battery power gets low it sends out signals which could be activating the TV.
Also, unplug the TV overnight to see if the Microprocessor resets itself.
If neither of these work then you probably need a new motherboard. Not worth the cost for this old of a TV.
