Sounds like a fault in the remote receive circuit or power supply. ambient electrical noise is getting into the circuit somehere. As it is not a new TV, I would suspect power supply capacitors, as they dry out with heat and age. Probably best to take it to a repair shop that gives free estimates/quotes, as there may be more on its way out and this is the first symptom.

Your tv sounds fairly normal to me - there is a difference between a tv being switched off and being on standby. It is usual for a tv to need to be switched on manually and from there the remote would be able to switch it between on and standby.
Sometimes the "power" button of the remote only switches the set to standby and selecting a channel would switch it from standby...
AKB 66 in self diagnostic test means...TV goes to standby (shut-off) for AKB problem 66 times. AKB is White-Balance signal and it is not proper or maintained in your TV. So error signal produced and TV goes to shut-down state.
Regardnig Standby button, its available on remote only. If you push TV Power switch, TV will switch ON, push it again to OFF TV. Power Button on remote set TV in standby status and you dont need to push power button of TV itself.
if your remote is ok then this is due to power supply failure in your tv.
either it is loose in oscillator ckt in switching section or it has failed.
if not tech person call tech to fix it.
not a major problem.
