Since we got our TV it turns on spontaneously all by itself. It is made by Magnavox. My mom gave it to us as a christmas present about 2 years ago and it has always done this. We were always so busy we never got around to taking it back or contacting the manufacturer. Has anyone else ever had this experience? I assume that maybe it is a short in the TV or something. To be safe, we always have it plugged into a surge suppressor and turn it off at the base so it won't come on by itself, especially when he aren't home and at night. It is pretty freaky sometimes (LoL)!
