How to Turn on Digital Converter Boxes Without Remotesby Bryan Roberts
Digital converter boxes allow television users to view a digital television signal on their older, analog-only televisions. Most converter boxes come with a remote control, allowing users to turn on the converter box from a distance. However, if you do not have a remote control, you can still manually turn on the device.
Connect the small end of your AC adapter cable to the AC port on the back of your converter box.
Connect the large end of your converter box's AC adapter to an electrical socket neat your television.
Press the "Power" button on your converter box. This button is either marked with the word "power" or a symbol of a closed circle with a line extending upward from the circle. Once you press this button, the converter box will power on.
