Default TV just shut off?



Advertise Here

ummm. a few minutes ago my t.v. just shut off for no reason.
my remote control is sitting right here beside my laptop.
The lights and fan was still on.
for some reason just before the tv shut off, I happened to glance at the tv and there was a guy repeating something for a few seconds and then the tv shut off. i didn't catch what he was saying. I think it was a single word, maybe two syllables. The way he was repeating the word was like when a CD skips. The guy was to the left side of the screen, inside a dim lit home with a window in the background. the guy was clean groomed and caucasian. brownish hair? I do watch tv, but do not recognize him.
This was totally weird. there was nothing to turn the tv off. nothing touched the remote. The channel was 33.2 ccw during the last few minutes of America Now. The tv is 3 year old Emerson. never done this before. It works just fine.
there was no disruption of power. the tv, fan and laptop are plugged into the same multi-outlet.

Any thoughts on why and/or how this happened?

A problem with your wiring or cable.

It's a coronal mass ejection.

Or your TV just broke. Then again, a neat trick to play on people is to get a universal remote and turn the TV off when they're not looking. The kids had my ex-wife believing it was a poltergeist for about 2 hours one night.

It's January 4, 2029 - if that checks out everything is A-OK.

I think Al Gore is flying around in his private jet using a high powered universal remote control to save the planet....I guess he started his mission in Indiana....

If you have watching something like "entertainment tonight" or "the view" or even mainstream news the BS filter could be clogged up and overloading.

Sounds like your tv went caput! Toss in the trash and buy a new one.

Hmmmm... well when something of mine turns off, I go huhh wonder why that happened.... then I try to turn it back on and if it does not work, I then begin to trouble shoot it.

Kinda like the dishwasher two days ago, went off right in the middle of it's cycle. Checked the fuse box and no probs, checked the door switch and no apparent problem. Said a cuss word or two and began to unplumb and remove it from the counter. Whoever installed it used a very short power cord to plug it in and it for years had been just barely connected. I also found the skeleton of a mouse hanging out of the plug in. I removed the mouse lengthened the cord, tested and put everything back together.

So did you do any kind of trouble shooting at all?......

Modern televisions are a computer inside, computers are highly affected by external sources, all kinds of things can cause a computer to lock up. You could have also lost signal, many new tv's will turn off the pic unless there is a signal available.

Just seems a little wierd to me that someone would turn the paranormal to explain something like that.

When this happens in the Matrix, it is an indication that the program was re-written. You better watch out for Agents... They are on to you.

Tv works fine. highly doubt bad wiring. this just happened, out of the blue.
the multi-outlet is fine too.
the tv is using an antennea for basic free channels.
used to have cable-not anymore! 2 expensive.
just like all the other services- something/someone else rippin me off.

Since OP gave a detailed description about all the circumstances surrounding this event, but did not mention that he did the obvious thing and turned the TV set back on to see if it still works, I'm thinking...

Troll.

Edit: Whoops, ninjaed. So not a troll, but WAY too nervous. If the TV goes back on and stays on, it could have been anything from a stray radio signal to a heat building up to a power glitch. It's not as if the government is turning off your set by remote control to keep you from watching things. They're too busy building FEMA death camps, signing Executive orders preparing the way for the NWO to come in and take over, and setting up TEOTWAWKI to worry about one person. Or so I gather from reading the Conspiracy section.

Besides, you shouldn't watch TV, it rots your brain.

It's a sign from God. He's saying, "Don't watch TV."

It's a safety feature in your tv's electronics that shuts the tv down to protect it from damage from an overvolt, over static build up, or a Mitt Romney commercial.
