Unfortunately, no, that is not an option on this model. While it does have an auto power off feature and some other eco features for turning off, it does not have an on timer or alarm feature.

This is simply a limitation of the design of this particular model.

There are some alternate options you could try though such as connecting the power cord to a lamp timer that would turn on at a specific time. Even that though won't work reliably unless it is already powered on when the external timer cuts it off, and using this type of external power switch can lead to hardware damage of the tv over time, so it would not be recommended.

My apologies for the news,

Nathan
