Has anyone the codes for turn ON televisions?
Thank you very much.

I wonder if this might not be the case in some situations though?
I can turn my friend's old Sony off with my TV-B-Gone but it can't turn it back on again.
My own TV however (Philips) turns on and off with the TV-B-Gone.
Press the button once. Don't hold the button down! It will just keep resetting itself. The codes start to transmit once you release the button.
The indicator LED will blink for every code it sends. Keep the TV-B-Gone pointed at your target until it turns off. The 4 infrared LEDs will not blink visibly because human eyes can't see infrared light.
When the TV-B-Gone is finished, the indicator light will blink quickly a few times and then stop.
