Why does my TV turn itself on in the middle of the night?
On random days (about 2-3 times a month) my bedroom LED TV turns itself on between the hours of 2am-6am and no other time.:smileyconfused: That does wake one up :smileyangry:
:smileyinfo: The TV was described by the DirecTV tech who made the initial setup as really an LED computer monitor rather than a regular TV. (I got it as a door prize for a contest.) It is a Colby 23" TFT LEDTV, model 2326 connected to DirecTV by a composite cable provided with the TV.
:smileyinfo: This same tech told me when turning on the unit to press the 'ON' button twice. To turn off to slide the 'MODE' tab all the way to the right and press the 'PWR' button twice and then to return it all the way to left position.. Those instruction work just fine.
:smileyinfo: I contacted the tech mentioned about who suggested two possible solutions.
- Replace batteries (done)
- Change the HDMI setting control to 'OFF' since I am using composite cables. (done)
And the TV still comes on in the middle of the night. He speculated that a software download is sent by DirecTV which triggers the monitor to turn on.
