As with any electrical appliance, you should first rule out any mundane causes for experiences such as this. Itís most likely a problem with the wiring or the lamp, itself. Better to be safe than sorry.

Maybe electrical surges as well. Try this; put in a different light bulb, and plug the lamp into a different outlet, preferably in a different room on another breaker. However, it would be much cooler if it was paranormal! If so, I would like to contact one that can manipulate an ATM machine! You know, for scientific reasons!! LOL!

You are probably right Amanda , it was doing that a lot for a while particularly after my friend died and then later just before and after one of my sisters died and about a moNth ago it stop doing that,

maybe you are right and it somehow healed itself from whatever electrical problem it had, ;)

I have had this happen to me, but I found the cause. Do you have any of those electric lightning lamps (you touch it and the lightning follows your fingers) this has some effect on touch lamps and makes then go crazy, I had video of it once but the problem was that I had no way of getting it on my computer.

No i do not but that is really very good thinking , i will tell you what though that sure does sound like it would be a great video , maybe a friend can help you , it would be very nice to see that,

I do however have a lot of sound equipment mixers , multitracks , amplifiers , effect units and junk like that , could be from an interference but it happens usually when i am doing nothing.

My friend said he has a digital video camera, we were going to use it to film a diet coke and mentos thing in the pool parking lot on the last day of swim team (we have asked and so far it is a maybe) But I can ask if he can bring it over someday.

this has happened to me but we just unplugged the thing.my cat when she would stretch would turn the light on.silly as that sounds.

Touch lamps are extremely sensitive, it seems to me. My mother-in-law has several in her home, and you just have to walk past the open door of one room to set that one off.

As was mentioned in an earlier post here, it is always a good idea to rule out ordinary causes/explanations for "strange" happenings. Just because we haven't seen something before doesn't mean that you should automatically think that it is a paranormal occurance.

I hate touch lamps for just this reason! They can be horible for turning themselves on at the slightest vibration! I have found that more often than not if a touch lamp is involved then it is more likely the lamp and not a ghost.
