my Dad has a problem with his new philips 28PW6816C TV/DVD combi.
It keeps jumping into standby mode without warning and can only be turned on by unplugging then starting again.
Any ideas?
(Also is there a hack available for the DVD?)

Not familiar personally with this model but it sounds knackered to me.

I don't know where your Dad bought it from but I would advise taking it back (or getting it collected if bought via mail order) for a replacement.

Does it jump into standby when you are operating the remote or just when it is on by itself? Also does this happen straight away once it has been initially turned on or does it start to happen after a while of it being on?

Probably someone with more expertise with TVs could help you some more.
