We all know the saying “things that go bump in the night”, right? My TV randomly turns off and on.
True – In the middle of night, it’s doing some weird stuff. Also, you might have noticed it’ll turn off in the middle of watching your favorite Halloween movie. (If you need to know mine is the Disney Channel original Halloweentown.)
False – No, spookiness to report here. The TV stays off once I turn it off.
So, I’m hearing voices…my TV talks to me randomly, and I’m not sure why.
True – The TV is announcing what it’s doing. For example, when you turn the volume down it says, “Volume 24”.
False – My TV doesn’t talk to me or it does, but I’ve enabled an accessibility feature or smart voice assistant like Google’s Alexa.
Eek! My TV just won’t turn on at all.
True – It was just working earlier, but not it won’t.
False – We’re good here!
