Switching ON your Skyworth TV with a remote control is a breeze. However, the situation becomes cumbersome when the remote is lost or unresponsive.
It is not a big deal because you can still Power ON your Skyworth TV without using a remote. I have shared some quick DIY methods that you can follow to overcome the situations.
To turn ON Skyworth TV without a remote, I suggest you use the Physical power button on the panel or download a remote app on your mobile and use your smartphone as a remote to control your smart TV functions.
How to Turn On Skyworth TV Without Remote
Below are all the possible ways and detailed instructions to switch ON your smart TV when the Skyworth remote is not working.
1. Use Physical Power Button On The Panel
Like other smart TVs, Skyworth TV also has a Power button located on the front underneath the logo, side, or back.
After locating the button, press it firmly and then release it. This will Turn ON your Skyworth TV. Other buttons on the panel are Menu, Volume +/-, and Channel Up/Down.
You can also tune TV channels using the Menu button to open settings, Volume, and Channel buttons for navigation and selection of options.
2. Use the Skyworth TV Remote App For Android
Controlling TV functions from the panel is painful because you have to get up to adjust the volume or change channels.
You can overcome this problem by simply installing the Skyworth remote app on your Android smartphone.
This app will transform your phone into a remote and will allow you to Power ON your TV and change channels and volume.
After installation, launch the app, and you will see a remote interface on your mobile screen. Press the Power button to switch ON your TV.
3. Power ON TV With Android TV Remote App
You can also use Android TV remote app to switch ON your device if the remote is not responding.

- Launch the app and select Skyworth TV.
- Press the Power button on the top right to turn ON your TV.
4. Use Google Assistant to Turn on Skyworth Smart TV
If your Skyworth smart TV has an Android or Google TV operating system, you can use the Google Home application on your Android phone or iPhone to turn it ON.
Below are the links to download the app:
- Download and install the Google Home on your phone
- Launch the app and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup.
- Select Skyworth TV from the list of available devices.
- Once paired, say, “OK, Google, Switch on the TV.”
- The app will turn ON your Skyworth TV via voice command.
5. Get A Universal Remote
All the above-mentioned solutions are temporary because there is no easy alternative to controlling Skyworth TV without a remote.
I suggest you get a universal remote that is compatible with your TV. My top recommendation is the GE universal remote.
It is compatible with 1000+ devices and capable of controlling 6 to 8 devices at a time. It is affordable and easy to set up.
