    Hey all!

    Just a question, wonderin if maybe you might know somethin

    My TV [its a 42" Polaroid LCD TV] started turning itself off and on every couple minutes when I was goin to bed last night. I ended up unplugging it so itd stop but i plugged it in just now to see and my TV just turned itself on a couple minutes ago. Hasnt turned itself off yet but doesnt mean it wont. just kinda waitin to see

    ive done a little googling but havent really found anything too solid or about my specific type/brand of TV. Ive heard it may have something to do with the power supply or something and could be the first of a few things to go wrong in my TV. Guess i'll have to check to see if its still in warranty

    hmm


    anyways! i need it to play Mass Effect 2 xD

    Try changing the batteries in the remote.

    A long shot thing to look into is if your neighbors recently got a new TV, if their remote works on the same or similar codes as your TV it can do wonky things on your end.

    kinda interesting you mention it. we did get new neighbors the other day

    however, my TV started doing it at like 2 AM and they're a couple of elderly people so....i dunno how feasible that is lol
