Hi, My tv is fairly new and all of a sudden its changeing channels on its own, if i leave it like that after a while a red timer appears of about 1 min then the tv turns off and comes on itself and does the same thing with the channels. Ifi put it on standby after 5 seconds it turns on by itself, it seems as if a button is constantly pressed but i have taken batteries out of the remote but i have the same problem, please help.
Have you checked to see if any of the front panel buttons are depressed and stuck??? this is a big problem these days?? I have also found the infared remote sensor to be bad on some sets that do crazy things all by them selfs.. A funny storry once i had was a customer called me after her mother called some goast finders as her maggy projection set would go on all by itself andf the channels would change and the volume would go up and down all by its self. funny thing I had a set just like thast in the shop at the time with the same problem and I scoped out the output pulse from the infared reciver on the set and that was putting out noise on the data line and caused the set to eratacly do all sorts of weird stuff. get the point?? its a stck button or the remote sensor is bad.
I've had a similar problem. I was watching TV one day and all the sudden the channel changed by itself. It went down one station. Then every once in a while it would just go down one station on its own. It has done it more often recently.
It does not come on or go off by itself and it does not keep flipping channels. It just goes down one station and stays there until I push the channel button or use the remote to change the channel back.
I'm thinking that the sensor may be going bad or it could have a button stuck. The power button did break a while back, so maybe that has something to do with it. It's something within the TV itself that is causing it, like a bad sensor that is malfunctioning and causing it to flip.
It will most likely have to be taken to a TV repair shop to get checked out and to have it fixed there. Unless you know how to put in a new sensor to see if that fixes the problem. Either that or you can check to see if there are any stuck buttons.

I've just called Argos who I brought the bush tv from and they talked me though how to fix this problem, here goes
Press and hold the on/ off button
Whilst holding unplug the plug from the wall
Continue holding for 30 seconds
Plug in the plug whilst continuing to hold the on/ off button
Continue to hold for a further 30 seconds
And the screen should come back on, it's worked for me, good luck x
