Ghosts In The House Turn On The Television

Posted on November 19, 2007

Submitted by Mary P

When I was a child, we moved to a two story farm house a few miles south of Lamar, Missouri.

There was a strange feeling, cold sensation, when going up the stairs, it made Mom and me very uncomfortable but we moved in anyway.

The day we were moving our furnishings into the house, Dad had put the television in the front room but did not plug it in or connect it to the antenna.

I was going through the front room and all of a sudden the television came on all by itself. I yelled and ran to my folks and told them the television came on all by itself.

Dad assured me there was nothing to worry about, and to continue helping. To this day, I cannot account for why the television came on all by itself without electricity, an antenna or the knob being turned on.

Does anyone know how this could happen? Or did the ghost in the house just want to watch television?

    Hello Mary. Did anything eles strange happen while you were in that house?

  2. John S. says:

    If you lived in a small area like an apartment building you might be picking up stray remote control signals from other peoples remotes. I had this happen back in the 80′s where I lived. I moved the TV away from the window and it stopped. That should be easy to test. I have heard about this a lot and find it had to explain away in all cases as stray light from other remotes.

  3. The Caretaker says:

    Hello John. I am sure that what you have described happens quite often, but according to Mary’s story the TV was not plugged in. Of course she may have been very young and wasnt aware that the TV had been plugged in. I would be interested to here from Mary – Are you absolutely sure that the TV wasn’t plugged in?

  4. Nancy says:

    Hello, Mary. My name is Nancy! I live in A studio apt in Oregon. I work in A haunted Place, and one night A friend was picking me up to take me to work and My TV went off by itself. He asked me why I turned it off and I said I didnt do it! My remote was on the dresser! It freaked him out and he said it was time to go! The ceiling light also went off by itself as we were leaving!

  5. Pat says:

    Strange! That would have freaked me out big time! heck you weren’t even moved in yet and the phenomena was starting! Yikes! i wonder if someone hadn’t fallen down the stairs in the past and that is why the staircase makes you and your Mom uncomfortable… good luck!
