no it won't/doesn't, regardless of appliance model, this would NEVER happen.

Riggghhht...

And the clock never flashes when the power goes off...

it wouldn't reset a timer by unplugging any unit. It would stop a timer working, but would not reset it.

you have to get the wording right otherwise you can't have a discussion

Re: WTH - Is there a telephone in my big screen?
I don't suppose unplugging it occurred to anyone?

rolleyes
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 780016


Well - I can unplug it, sure - but I don't usually, because when my husband gets home we are all sleeping and he watches dvd's before going to bed.

Then, when my kids get up, they usually want a dvd to watch.

Anyway, my question was more about the ringing telephone than how to make the tv stop turning on.....
 Quoting: Dried Up Hag


sigh

Unplugging for a few minutes will usually reset the unit to 'factory default' settings...

No more turny ony...No more ringy ringy...

MmmKay?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 780016


So - what is that "ringy ringy" thing? Any ideas on that?

It's a Zenith R50W47c......
 Quoting: Dried Up Hag





Glad I don't have that TV!

That is some creepy shit, you could totally write are horror plot just around that. Imagine just walking around everywhere and fucking televisions ringing at you, and here is the clincher, only you hear it. Also, the only way to make it stop is to answer it and have a conversation with an evil entity on the other line.... OOoooooo E ooooo Spooky shit!





My explanation, is I (maybe you too) can hear this uber-high pitched whining noise coming from TV's (especially CRT's or tube TV's) when I'm in the vicinity.

Maybe that combined with a ceiling fan to oscillate it.

No one seems to be able to give an answer to your question. Have you tried the customer service number?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1463341


Not yet....my husband is not home yet with the cell phone, so I have to wait until after 9 am......I'll try that though, thanks.
 Quoting: Dried Up Hag


what I don't understand is why you only have 1 mobile between you & no land line?
Am I understanding this correctly?

what if you have an emergency & need to ring for help??

If your husband has the only form of phone with HIM, you need a new husband imo. I would never let my wife be without a phone (even though I hate mobiles), from a safety pov you need one, especially if you are a woman.

I have never experienced or heard of such a thing...perhaps it's some sort of an alarm on the TV? IDK why it would suddenly have been activated, though.

I know that didn't help, but I thought I would address your expressed curiosity regarding the source of the ringing rather than insult your intelligence, husband, choices in life, etc. Bet you weren't prepared to be taken to task for asking a simple question! lol

Normally, I have the phone......but he commutes quite a distance to work and yesterday the car was acting up, so I insisted he take it with him for once.

As a man, husband & father, I would NEVER do that. I always come last wrt everything & that's the way it should be imo.

Go to a home improvement store and buy a plug in outlet that comes with a remote. Plug it into a outlet and plug the TV into it. The remote stops all power going to the TV.

since the phone RANG inside a TV not connected to anything, my suggestion is that she answer her angel that is calling. The message is that it is wakeup time perhaps?
