How do you turn on the tv without a remote cause I've lost my remote
In order to do that, your TV will need to have a dedicated power or On / Off button. It may be a symbol like "I / O". Most TV have a button like that, but yours may not. If it doesn't - you can pick up a new universal remote to work your TV for less than $20.
What you'll need is your TV's brand name (Sony, Magnavox, Toshiba, RCA, etc.) and if possible - the model number. Not many remotes require a model number - but it can't hurt to have it. Go to a store that sells universal remotes (Fry's Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.) or eBay and either look for a universal remote that indicates it has the codes built in for your brand (and model) TV or a used on on eBay for your specific TV. When selecting a new remote, you pay extra for the number of devices it will operate. If you only need it for TV, than a one or two device remote will be all you need. If you want to stop using your DVD player remote and one for your stereo too, then you'll need a remote that can do 3 or more devices. Make sure that the remote will work for the brand and device. One that does Toshiba TVs may not do Toshiba DVD players. Checking the remote's web site can help you figure this out instead of standing in a store trying to figure it all out.
I hope this helps & good luck!
