Your TV-B-Gone® remote has one switch, and it can turn TVs either off or on. Once your TV-B-Gone® is activated, it will start the sequence of codes being emitted. For original models of TV-B-Gone® remotes (without Instant Reactivation Feature), this lasts 69 seconds even if you push the button again. Once the sequence has finished its 69 second run, pushing the button will start the sequence again and turn the TV back on. All current models of TV-B-Gone® remote controls have Instant Reactivation Feature, so you can press the button at any time to turn the same (or another) TV off or on right away – just hold down the button for at least one second.
