    We own a philips magnavox tr2503 c121 television. It was in a common
    room used by the public. All of a sudden it started turning on and off
    spontaneously.

    We assumed that someone had programmed it the sleep mode.
    Eventually, it stopped turning on altogether. The remote has since
    disappeared.

    Can anyone tell us how to get it to turn on again. I cannot find a
    remote to match it. Can anyone help in that area either?

    Anything you can do would be greatly appreciated.

    hit the channel button, many TVs will wake up for that. OTOH your TV could
    be faulty.

    We have a similar Philips TV, 32 inch, about 5 years old.
    Our problem - turns off for a few seconds, then back on, repeat for a few
    minutes... then usuallyOK fora couple of hours.
    Called local repair guy - he said Philips had a bad batch of tubes (his
    theory) and had seen several like ours. Apparently the Blue Gun flashes
    over (?) causing power supply to reset the TV. Fix is new tube, but they
    are too expensive/rare to make it a cost-effective repair. Suggested new
    TV, recommended Samsung.
