I'm sorry you're having trouble with the TV. It could be remote sensor failure in TV or firmware glitch causing the issue so lets try easy thing first.

- Have you tried to unplug TV and cable box power cords from wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in, let cable box reboot that may take several minutes and check?
If not yet, please try it now and reply back with the result.
