It sounds to me like you have the tv set plugged into a switched outlet. To check this, I suggest you plug a different device (such as a lamp) into the outlet and see if it does the same thing.
If possible, try plugging in the tv to a different outlet.
Good luck!

How do I get sky from my set top box to work in a different room, I am trying to get my sky to work on a TV in a different room ? I have wired up TV coax cable from my sky box in sitting room and run


Hi Jim,
Here In my place in India, you can attach only one tv to the sky set top box.That too with AV cables. The program or channel changing is done by box only. The tv works as a monitor and has no role in program selection. You can attach a second tv to the box not through antenna cable but through AV cables only. That too if the box is having second set of output sockets. In that case both the TVs will receive the same programmes. To watch different programmes on the second tv you will have to go for an additional box.

TV link not working with my LG 50PH660V 50-inch Widescreen 1080p Full HD 3D Smart Plasma TV with Freeview HD/600Hz. I connected coax cable to my Sky Box, switching on the RF on, but I can not get it w


Hi Jim, your nearly there, all you need to do is go into the tv menu and move from DTV to the old type channel numbers and then find the bit where you can manually tune the tv to channel 68.
Have a sky menu picture running and you will see it come in.

Outside a room there are three light switches. one switch is connected to the only light bulb inside the room. each of these three switched can be either "on" or "off". all start in the "off" position


While standing at the switches (outside the room) turn each switch on until the light is activated. You need not be in the room to see the light operating.

Track lighting remote control similar to that of ceiling fan?


Yes, but the remote operates on the switch that turns the lights on and off. Lutron has this kind of technology and it is really cool. I have it all over my house and I don't even have to go room by room turning lights off; I just push a button from my bedroom. Along with a single remote that can be used with each switch in your house, you can program a house remote that controls the lights and ambiance of every room.

My evesham tv wont come on/ it appears to come on but few lights flash then it knocks straight back off


We had this problem, everytime we switched it off at the main plug, so when we could, we would leave it on standby. On this occasion we had to switch it off completely, but when we tried to switch it on again it wouldn't come on. So we put the t,v in another room, a much warmer room, and after leaving it for a few days hey presto it started to work again.

LCD TV blanks out when I flick the switch for my room lights


Do you have surge protector installed? If not, you should use one, something like MONSTER CABLE.

Projection TV when turned on picture is dark can view slight images until dinning room light is turned on


Try hooking the TV to a different outlet fed by a different breaker. Does the problem go away? If so, the culprit may be a wiring problem in your house that is causing the TV not to get enough power unless the dining room light is on.If in doubt, consult an electrician to make sure both the dining room light and TV outlet circuits are working properly.
