4 Methods to Turn On TCL TV Without Remote

Here are different methods to turn on TCL TV without a remote:

1. Using Physical Button

You can use physical button on your TCL tv, to turn it on without using remote, for this:

If the TV is already on, pressing the button might bring up a menu instead. Use the button to navigate to the “Power Off” option and press again to turn the TV off.

TCL TVs come with built-in Roku OS, so you can use Roku tv app to control your TCL TV:

  2. Download the Roku app on your smartphone from the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play Store (Android).

  4. Open the Roku app on your smartphone.
  5. Follow the app’s on-screen instructions to pair your smartphone with your TCL TV. This usually involves entering a code displayed on the TV screen.
  6. Once paired, you can use the virtual remote on the app to turn on the TV, adjust volume, and control other functions.

3. Using an IR Blaster/Universal Remote (For Android Phones)

If you are using android phone, you can use its IR Blaster feature to turn your tv on without Remote:

  1. Check if your Android phone has an IR blaster. Consult your phone’s manual or search online for your phone model specifications.
