How to Turn ON Hisense TV without Remote

It is no secret that ever since Hisense TVs hit the market, there has been expanding demand for them mainly because of how there are some excellent affordable models and they have some excellent set of features as well as picture quality. I am talking about 4K TVs with HDR10 output, as well.

However, the one small gripe that I have with Hisense TVs, and well, almost all the TVs is the moment when the remote control stops working or gets damaged because of one reason or another. Sure, this looks like a small issue but sometimes, things are much worse than you might believe.

That is why in this guide, I am going to teach you how to turn on Hisense TV without remote. The guide is super-simple and we are going to explore a number of methods to help you get the job done.

All The Ways to Turn on Hisense TV without Remote 

Thanks to how technology has matured over the years, there are now multiple ways of doing something as simple as turning the TV on. Gone are the days when you had to find yourself bound to the remote control as the only mean to turn on the TV.

Your Hisense TV can be turned on in a number of ways and we are going to take a look at all of them below.

Method 1: Manually Turning on the TV

The first method allows you to manually turn on the TV by locating the power button. According to information provided by Hisense, the power button can be found directly in the middle of the bottom edge of the TV. 

However, it is important to know that not all TVs have a physical button as some TVs come with a sensor. So, if you are having troubles finding the button or the sensor, I would highly suggest that you refer to the manual of your specific TV model and that should help you.

Method 2: Using the Roku OS or Android TV App 

Using the Roku OS or Android TV App

Unlike some other TVs in the market, most of the Hisense TVs you are going to find in the market are going to be running either Android TV or Roku OS. These are both inherently different operating systems, therefore, requiring separate apps.

Based on the OS your TV is running, you can go ahead and use the control app and get the job done. However, it is very important to know that both your TV and your smartphone have to be connected on the same Wi-Fi or else it will not work.

The method below should help you turn on Hisense TV without remote control. However, you have to understand that before you are able to set up the app, your TV has to be powered on so the pairing can be done.

  • Step 1: Start by downloading the Roku Official Remote Control on your smartphone.
  • Step 2: Launch the app and look for the Hisense Smart TV.
  • Step 3: Connect to the TV and select the Remote tab.
  • Step 4: Tap the power button that you can find at the center of the screen and turn on the TV.

The aforementioned steps are for Hisense TVs running Roku OS. If your TV is running Android TV, you can follow the steps below to know what needs to be done.

  • Step 1: Download Android TV Remote Services on your phone.
  • Step 2: Launch the app and go through the setup process.
  • Step 3: Choose your Hisense TV and connect, you will need to pair with the code on the smartphone.
  • Step 4: Once the TV is paired with the app, you can go ahead and use the app to turn on the TV with ease.

Again, your TV and the smartphone will need to be on the same Wi-Fi to get it working or else it will not work. 

Alternatively, if you do not want to have a dedicated app just for turning on the TV, you can also go ahead and use Google Home; the app comes as default on most of the Android phones, it is also easy to use, and it actually can work with other Google Home supported devices, too.


I understand the struggle that comes with losing the remote control of your TV or worse, damaging it. You can either go ahead and buy a brand new remote but if you want something that is accessible right away, pairing your Hisense TV with your phone is the best way as it allows for a much more flexible way of turning on your TV and using it.
