TV won't turn on with remote & no power switch

I turned my Hitachi C2509T CRT TV off one day with the remote and a few minutes later tried to turn it back on again but nothing happened. It doesn't have an on/off power switch on the front of the TV. Turning on and off at socket brings it into standy mode only. Have checked remote and even bought another replacement same remote - no go. Bought a Universal one but it doesn't know my TV model and says to carry out set up for unlisted model you have to have TV switched on - so that won't work either.

We only use that remote to turn TV on because here in UK we use Freeview for digital programmes and therefore use the remote on the DVD/Freeview machine for channel choice. All I need to do is get TV to turn on and I'll be sorted!

Surely there must be an on/off switch somewhere on the machine (or inside back if take the cover off). Can anyone advise me please?

The set may have a problem and not the remote.I can only pull up specs for US made tvs,so can't help on button locations.
