How to Turn the TV on Without a Remote

By Chad Buleen

Even though owning a remote control is convenient for watching television and flipping through channels, you do not need a remote to turn on the TV. Every television has the ability to be turned on and off, regardless of whether there is a remote or not.

Step 1

Approach the TV until you are standing in front of it.

Step 2

Search for the power button. This button is often located along the bottom panel of the TV, but some flat-panel televisions include the power button facing upward or downward at the top or bottom of the TV's frame.

Step 3

Press the power button fully and release. The TV will turn on.
