Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV
The remote sensor on the front board has also caused this problem to happen in this TV set. you will need to disconnect the remote sensor . If you have no TV or electronic repair experience, you really should not attempt this repair on your own unless you do not care about doing something to the TV set, but this is a nice tV set so why would you want to mess it up? Have you by the way taken the batteries out of the remote control? I have had in the past, a bad remote to cause this type of issue. I doubt though if the capacitor in the power supply is causing this problem. It could be a regulator in the standby power supply. A service manual is available for a download here http://www.servicemanuals.net/results.aspx?type=SM&brand=0&model=HL-R6167W or you can go to Samsung parts at and order the key board if you really think the key boardhttp://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp?searchflag=byonemodel&searchkey=HLR6167W&modelid=361105 is bad, or there are the other parts you need. Samsung only sells the complete board, so you will need to decide if the problem is the 45.00 board or the 600.00 board. Good luck

My best guess is some moisture has gotten around the controls and is shorting out the buttons making it change channels and Turn on and off by itself.
You need to get some contact cleaner and a can of Air spray. Gain access to the circuit behind the controls, carefully of course, power turned off. Clean the buttons, and the circuit board thoroughly. This should put you in business. Please do not run keep the Television plugges in until you do this as further damage could occur.
I have had this happen to almost every television that I had. Eventually enough dust and lint will collect, then somehow someway moisture gets into the dust, lint, and circuits. Just grit your jaw muscle and dive in.
