Question about Televison & Video
The tv begins to turn on with a loud click and then after a few seconds turns off again. In the intervening seconds the screen partially brightens and then dims again. The tv is in the bedroom and the loud click is very disturbing (wife is a light sleeper). Philips seem to have no idea what is causing this. They've had it in the shop for 3 weeks and can find nothing wrong with software, timer etc. Have tried everything from taking remote out of room to covering intrared receiver with tape. The on-timer is switched off. What type of external signal could the tv be recieving to cause it to think it should switch on? TV is just over a year old.
I can think of nothing in our home that would send a signal for any reason at a predetermined time. Hope you can help.
Outside your home like an alarm signal from another house, company or car. Can you switch the signal to another frequency? Or just build a Faraday cage ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage
