Does it shut off with the power button on the TV? If not, is one of the buttons on the TV stuck?

That's a rarity. Usually it won't turn. Like Rick mentioned.....maybe a button. One way to know for sure is if any of the buttons work then it's most likely not a stuck button. One button stuck or shorted will usually render all the buttons unusable.

There may be a defective control relay in the power supply or a power switching problem.
A model number of the TV would help.

It's the voice in the wires....................

Sorry, cheesy 80's horror movie reference..

I would also think stuck button.. It may not show as stuck from the exterior.. The actual button switch may be stuck or shorted internally, or if it's a cheap model they sometimes use 'clicker domes' - a piece of thin steel pressed into a dome shape and taped over a set of contacts.. When you press on it, the steel inverts and makes the contact.. I've seen those corrode or get stuck many times.
