My Roku remote will not turn on my Phillips TV

I have four Roku streaming sticks on various TVs in my house and only one will not turn on the TV.  The TV is a Phillips brand.  I have tried switching sticks/remotes but none work on that TV.  They all work on other TVs (Vizio and Sony).  The remote on the Phillips TV just won't turn the TV on.  Volume and turning the TV off work fine.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

Its probably due to Philips use of toggle bit, press the volume key before the power, see if works then.

Hey. Thank you so much for suggesting to hit the volume button before hitting the power button. You fixed my problem!!! My Phillips tv would turn off Everytime I hit the power button on my tcl Roku tv. Now I have a solution. Thanks so much!!!

Using the volume control before turning TV on works perfectly for me. Simple and effective solution. Thanks.

this sounds like HDCP.

 Is your TV HDCP capable? if it is you should turn off the HDCP on the TV set itself untill you can control the TV without HDCP on. then turn it back on if you use it

Check the middle of this page at remote central for explanation of parity or toggle bits:

The Philips tv has problem with pressing same button twice, like power, so pressing volume key switches up.

The volume up suggestion saved me a headache as well! I was ready to send the remote back or toss this old Philips TV.
