1. Might be IR interference. Try putting black tape over the IR eye on the TV and see if it goes away.

2. If the TV is powered by a cable box or DVD player, plug it directly into the wall.

3. Look in the menu structure for timers and make sure they are all disabled.

4. Make sure that no one is pranking you by using a hidden remote.
