Default Lg 42lf5800-ua won't stay off

ok, this kind of stuff only happens to me. Most people can't get their tv to turn on. Mine won't stay off. If I turn it off, about 20 seconds later it turns back on again all by itself and its not that CEC thing. nothing is connected to the tv. I also have a problem in the IR receiver / power button joystick thing. It won't respond to pressing in the joystick to get it to turn off. the direction stick will work but that's it. I also noticed when it does power up the red LED blinks three times and then goes out. When the TV is on, it operates just fine but only with a remote control. I would suspect the Main board but is there anything else anyone can think of that I might look into ? TIA

"IR receiver / power button joystick thing"
that's where I'd start to look. maybe upload some pictures, so we have something to look at.
