This problem never happened before , We on the tv and the channels keep changing by it self . We are not touching any buttons and we even tried offing the tv and switching the power off . Each time we on...

As a test, block its (or the cable Box's) remote infrared sensor so even you can't change the channels with a remote. Then watch and wait. If it keeps happening, you have a poltergeist or a defective unit.

If not, something out 'there' is emitting infrared signals that the unit interprets as channel commands. Find the remote someone is sitting on or that guy across the street who's aiming at your TV with HIS remote.

Changes channel by its self it goes crazy

You have ONE of two possibilities....on the Front panel buttons, you MIGHT have a stuck button or leaky button....

I suspect that if ALL it does is change would be a channel UP or DOWN button stuck....yes, it can fire up the tv too....But it will dedicate itself to doing only ONE function.

IF you have multiple operations, like changing channels, menu appearing, volume changing....then the MOST likely problem is actually the microprocessor causing the problem....BUT it is STILL possible to have SEVERAL buttons stuck....rare, but possible.

And unfortunately unplugging it won't even help in any of these possibilities....

You have to start with pressing each and every button one at a time and see if the problem stops afterwards....

IF it doesn't, then the next step is to measure the resistance across each button....they should read Infinite ohms.

If any measure lower, the button should be removed and see if the TV acts normally...

IF the buttons are located on a separate board with a plug that can be disconnected, you can just disconnect that while it's acting up and see if the problem disappears.....

If it still misbehaves after this, you NEED to get it to a TV tech for further analysis with a scope.....
