3 ways to turn on a Hisense TV without a remote


#1: Via the physical control button

The easiest way to turn on your Hisense TV without a remote is to find the physical power button on your device.

Most Hisense TVs have physical control buttons. 

And depending on the model, you can find it:

  • Right under/near the Hisense logo.
  • At the left/right backside of the TV.
  • On the bottom left/right edge of the screen.

It’s also important to know that there are 3 different types of physical control buttons on Hisense TVs:

  • Single-type button.
  • Vertical-type button.
  • Circular-type button.

To know their differences, let’s dig in a little about them.

Single-type control button

This type of control button is mostly found on some of the latest Hisense Android TVs, such as:

  • 32-Inch 32H5500F.
  • Other H55 series TV models.

Note: Its mere purpose is to turn on/off and put the TV into sleep mode.

Most users find this button difficult to locate. Since it’s underneath the Hisense logo, where the TV LED light is also located.

Making it nearly impossible to find. Unless you flip your TV upside down. Or feel the bottom of it.

Now, here’s how to turn on the Hisense TV using this single-type control button:

Step 1: Locate the small power button right under the Hisense logo. 

Step 2: Press and hold it for 2 to 3 seconds. Or until the TV screen lights up.

You can also watch this video to exactly know what this button looks like:

Vertical-type control button

You can find this type of physical control button on most smart TVs, regardless of the brand.

Since its design is very practical and familiar to most users of every generation.

On Hisense TVs, you can find it on:

  • Hisense Roku TV H4 series.
  • Other similar Roku TV models.

Unlike the first one, a vertical-type control button offers more functionality. 

With this, you can:

  • Turn/on the TV.
  • Mute the device.
  • Change the input source.
  • Increase/decrease the volume level.

Here’s how to turn on a Hisense TV using a vertical-type control button:

Step 1: Locate the control button panel either on the left or right backside of the TV.

Step 2: Locate the power button. Which is usually on the bottom of the panel.

Step 3: Then, press it once.

Circular-type control button

You can find a circular-type control button on other 4k, ULED, and Roku Hisense TVs.

Here are some of the models that have this type of physical control button:

  • Roku 4k TV.
  • A4 series models.
  • H3B series models.
  • H6B series models.
  • H6G series models.
  • Other similar models.

And you can find them in various locations. Most commonly on the left/right lower backside of the TV. Or on the left of the IR receiver.

It has almost the same functions as the vertical-type control button. Except that it’s designed denser and in a circular shape.

To turn on a Hisense TV using a circular-type control button:

Step 1: Locate the control button panel on the lower edges of the TV. Or under the Hisense logo.

Step 2: Then, press the power button. Which is the center button.

#2: Via a digital remote app

Another way you can turn on your Hisense TV without a remote is to download a digital remote app.

Note: For it to work, you have to connect your TV to the app. This means your TV should be turned ON initially.

Suppose your Hisense TV is currently turned off. Do way #1, and just use this method as your alternative option.

There are many digital remote apps in the app stores. But below are the 2 best-recommended apps for Hisense TVs.

#3: Via voice command

If you’re using a Hisense TV with VIDAA 4, you’re in luck!

And that’s because these TV models from 2019 onwards have built-in Alexa and Google Assistant

Which allows users to control their Hisense TVs via voice command.

Note: You must have already connected your TV to your preferred voice assistant for this to work. Otherwise, it won’t be able to control your device.

Here are some of the TV models that have this function:

  • Q8 series.
  • S8 series.
  • R6, R7, and R8 series.

You can also click this link to see specific models with built-in Alexa. Or this link for Google Assistant.

To control your Hisense TV via voice command, you must:

  • Create a VIDAA account.
  • Enable Alexa or Google Assistant on your TV.
  • Connect your devices to the same WiFi network.
  • Have a voice assistant speaker or app on your mobile device.

In a normal scenario, you should use your remote control to command Alexa or Google Assistant to turn on your TV.

But since you’re missing a remote…

What you can do is use your existing voice assistant speaker at home.

Suppose you have an Echo Dot or Google Nest Mini (previously Google Home Mini)…

You can direct your command to these speakers and say, “Hey Alexa/Google, turn on my TV.” 

Alternatively, you can also use the Alexa app or Google Home app on your phone to control your Hisense TV.

Just open your desired app. And tap the mic icon on the screen to ask your voice assistant.

Where is the power button on a Hisense TV?

You can find the power button of a Hisense TV right under the Hisense logo. Or on the left or right bottom edge of the device. While in some Roku TV models, you can find it on the left or right backside of the TV.

Aside from the location of the power button, its design or type also varies.

Depending on your TV model, you can either have a:

  • Single-type control button panel.
  • Vertical-type control button panel.
  • Circular-type control button panel.

The single-type control button is more common on Hisense Android TVs. While the vertical-type one is common among Hisense Roku TVs.

And the circular-type button is used mostly for Hisense smart TVs with 4k, ULED, DLED, and UHD features.
