TV Turning On By Itself


Novice Member

I bought a Philips Smart TV a couple of months ago and lately when getting up in the morning it’s turned on. I took the batteries out before bed last night to check if it’s a remote issue and the TV wasn’t on so looks like a Remote issue. Has anyone had this issue and if so how it was resolved? Thanks in advance

It has happened to me on two occasions. I have had a Philips 50PUS6754 Smart TV for 5 months now. Firstly update to the latest firmware if it is available. By all means replace the batteries in the remote. If I remember correctly, there is a setting in the tuning options menu which allows the TV to search for digital channel updates overnight or at other times whilst in standby. This can activate the set and turn it on. If your Smart TV has an option like this, then disable it. Hope this helps.

Well I’ve replaced the Batteries and turned off channel updates and for a couple of weeks it worked but now it’s turning itself on again. Guess next step is a factory reset see how that goes
