How to turn on LG TV without remote

Remote control of your LG TV is more convenient and familiar than without a remote control. Many TV viewers find themselves in a situation of confusion when the remote control suddenly gets lost, breaks down, or the batteries run out. Therefore, it is helpful to know how to proceed without the familiar remote control buttons. If you don’t have a remote control for your LG TV, or if it’s not working, you can use the manual control panel on the unit itself. After all, remote control devices are not the only tool for basic manipulation: turning on/off, adjusting, and switching channels on the TV.

The location of the button panel on the body depends on the specific model. Most often the location of the control buttons can be the back, right, or left wall of the TV panel, less often – at the bottom of the case, on the top end, or on the front frame. The extreme compactness of the buttons can make them difficult to find, they are hardly noticeable.
