We often lose the remote to our TV, and turning it on without it seems impossible. However, all Samsung TVs have a power button that you can use to turn on and control the TV. But the problem is that all Samsung models have different placements for the power button, and it can sometimes be challenging to find it.

If you’re having a tough time locating the power button of your Samsung TV, this article has got you covered. In this article, we will enlist all the possible locations for the power button on a Samsung TV and also guide you on how you can control the Samsung TV if you have lost your remote/TV controller.

The red light on the lower bezel of the screen indicates the power supply, and the power button is usually located near it. But if you’re still having difficulty finding the power button, you can look for it in the following locations of the TV.

Under the Samsung Logo in the Middle

The most common placement for a power button on a Samsung TV is Underneath the center of the lower bezel, or you can also say under the Samsung logo on the TV.

However, depending on your model, the power button placement would be different, so just try to feel around by putting your hand underneath the Samsung logo. If you don’t feel anything, it’s probably because your TV doesn’t have a power button there. Hence, you can try to find it in the next location.

Right Underside of the TV

Another very common placement for the power button in many Samsung TVs is underneath the right side of the lower bezel. It is also the place where the receiver of the TV is mostly located. 

Power Button Under Standby light or Receiver

This is quite an unexpected place for a power button, and it seems almost as if Samsung is playing hide and seek with the power button.

Plus, the power button here is so tiny that you might miss it. Therefore, you need to feel around this area carefully so you don’t miss the power button. In some models, this button is attached to the standby light on the lower side.

Front of the Bezel on the Right or Left Side (Touch Control)

Some Samsung TV models also feature a touch Power button with Up and Down Volume and Channel control. In these Samsung TVs, the power button is usually located on the right side of the lower bezel.

You need to closely look for the power icon on the lower bezel because you won’t be able to feel the power button as it only has a touch sensor that’s inside the bezel. When you see the power button label or Icon, press it and wait for a few seconds, which will turn on the TV.

Touch button on Front Bezel

A few older Samsung TVs might also have this button on the front left bezel, so check it there as well. 

If you don’t see a power icon, it would probably be because you’re TV doesn’t have a touch button.

On the Back of the Right Side

If you have looked at all the previous locations and had no luck finding the power button, then there is only one place left for the power button, which is at the back of the television.

This location for the power button isn’t ideal because you would need to pull the TV slightly forward to access it. Once you have enough space to fit your hand behind the right side of the television, try to move your hand around to find the Power button. 

Power Button On the Back

If you’re still having a problem finding it, it’s better to move the TV forward and try to find it with a torch. Moreover, if you can’t find it on the right side, move the TV forward from the left side and look for the power button there.

How to Control a Samsung Television Without a Remote

All Samsung TVs come with remote control, but if you ever lose it or it needs new batteries, you can still control your Samsung TV with the following methods mentioned below:

Control With the TV Control Button or the Control Stick

Control Button

If you only have a single control button (power button) on the TV, you can press it to switch on the TV. If you press the control button again after the TV is turned on, a menu will appear with the following options.

  • Power Off
  • Channel Up
  • Channel Down
  • Volume Up
  • Volume Down
  • Sources
Control Button Control Options

To select an option, you would need to press and hold the control button, and to move on to the next option; you would need to single-press the control button.

Control Stick

If your TV has a Control stick or Jog controller, you will have more control over the TV, and controlling will also be much easier for you.

A Control stick has multiple buttons underneath it, which you can press by moving the Jog controller in different directions. 

Pressing the Jog controller triggers the middle button, which turns on the TV if it’s off. If you’re standing in front of the TV, moving the control stick towards the left will turn down the volume, and if you move it towards the right, the volume will be turned up.

Jog Controller Options

In the same way, if you move the control stick upwards, you will move on to the next channel; if you move it down, you will come to the previous channel.

Pressing the jog controller after it is turned on will open the menu options, which are the following:

  • Reset or Return option
  • Power Off Option
  • Smart Hub
  • Settings
  • Source

Bringing the controller stick upward and then pressing it opens the smart hub from where we can use the smart features of the TV. Moving downwards on the power icon and pressing the control stick will turn off the TV.

Smart Hub

If you move to the right from the menu and press the jog controller, you will open-source, which includes options such as:

  • HDMI 1
  • HDMI 2
  • HDMI 3
  • TV (Cable)
  • Screen Mirroring 
  • USB

In contrast, if you move the Jog controller toward the left and press it, TV settings will pop up from where you will find the following options:

  • Picture
  • Sound
  • Broadcasting
  • Network
  • Smart Features
  • System
  • Support

Control With the Samsung Remote TV SmartThings App

  1. First, download the app from the Google Play Store.
  2. Once the download is complete, you can launch the app and connect it to your TV. Ensure the phone and the TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi source.
  3. You are now ready to use the app to control your TV.

Here’s how to control Samsung Smart TVs with Samsung Remote TV Smart Things App:

Troubleshooting the Samsung Tv Not Turning On Issue

If you’re having issues turning on the TV, It can be due to a few reasons. Firstly if your standby light is off, it indicates that the TV has no power supply.

The standby light of the TV should be on even when the TV is off. So if that’s the case, check the power supply to see if it’s turned on. 

If the button is on, but the standby light is still off, you can check the breakers to see if they had tripped, as that could also be one of the reasons why your TV doesn’t have a Power Supply.

If the Standby light is on, but you cannot turn on the TV with your remote, you may need to debug the remote.

You can do this by removing the remote’s batteries and pressing the reset button for 10 seconds. After this, put the batteries in again a see if it works.

If you still don’t have any luck, then it’s probably time for you to replace the batteries, so try to do that, and your issues will hopefully get fixed.


All Samsung TVs have a Power button, but Samsung changes its placement every year. So if you don’t find it, try harder because the power button is definitely located in one of the four locations mentioned in this article. If you can’t feel the button, use a flashlight and look for it.
