Why won't my Roku turn on?
There is no power to the Roku.
Is this a good question?
Released in September 2010, the Roku XD is the first generation of Roku’s video streaming set-top-box. The Roku XD is identified by model number 2050X.
If your Roku device will not turn on, the first thing to do is to make sure that the device is plugged in and that the power cord is seated properly. If you've done this and it still won't turn on, don't panic. You can consult the Roku XD troubleshooting page for more possible solutions.

I had this same problem. The light on the bottom was lit but the tv woulsn’tturn on. I tried the button on the TV as well as unplugging, and nothing changed. I don't understand why or how it works but I took the batteries if the remote out, held all the buttons down. Once I put the remote back together and pressed the power button it turned on! Weird.
