    Mine just started doing this a week ago and is driving me nuts ! I just unplugged it for a week out of anger, plugged it back in and still doing it. It is very annoying as the voice can wake you up out of a sound sleep.

TV turns itself off?

I am sharing four cases in which your tv either turns itself off or appears to turn itself off.

TV appears to be off
  • You using your tv as a monitor or your pc is in sleeping mode.
  • Your cable or satellite Box is not outputting a signal.

TV turns iteself off
  • The sleep timer is set.
  • The off timer is set.

Your tv appears to be off:

If you are using the tv as a monitor If you are using tv as a monitor and the stand-by light only
blinks for a few seconds when you press the power button,your pc is in the sleeping mode. To take your pc out of sleep,press a key from your key board or move the mouse.Tv turns on.

If you are using TV with a cable or satellite Box

If you have a cable or satellite Box your Tv may appear be off because the cable or satellite Box is not outputting a signal.Press the guide or info button on the cable or satellite Box remote control.

if the screen displays info or guide data,the problem is caused by the Box,you must call your cable provider.
if screen does not display info data,change the source on your TV.

What can I do to keep from falling asleep during the day as a result of taking Mirapex for restless legs.

First of all we need to rule out other causes of excessive day time sleepiness before blaming all that on the medicine. RLS itself can lead to insufficient sleep at night and excessive sleep during the day.
Another big problem due to obesity is Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Which leads to insufficient sleep at night and sudden and excessive sleepiness during the day.
I would suggest you talk to you doctor and can get a better history and perform a physical exam, he might refer you to a sleep specialist. In some people sleep study needs to be performed for further evaluation. The treatment will be focused on the underlying cause.

Why does my freeview digibox turn itself off? This happens during viewing or in the night. I do not have it set to go on standby, any ideas or help appreciated.

The Power supply is either faulty Itself, or it is detecting a fault, within the unit, and shutting the unit down for safety reasons. Are you sure there is no timer, sleep timer etc, active? You cannot repair something like this at home. You need to get it looked at by a service center, and ask for a "Quote" for the repair.

Tv turns on every night at 7:00 and turns off at 8:00 by itself. If we are already watching tv it defaults to a specific channel at 7:00 pm automatically.

Dear customer,                Check you tv's sleep timer and scheduler settings and disable them. thank you.
