My ROKU TV is not powering on at all. What can I do?

by

ok. so my tv wont turn on either. The light at the bottom of the tv is on but if I try to power it on it shows nothing. The light will not even flash at me. I have tired a new outlet and unplugging and plugging back in. I have also tired to turn the tv on by remote and by the button on the back of the tv. not sure what else to do. ANYTHING that anyone can think of will help.

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.

Remote and Roku Need to Be Reset

Remove batteries from the remote. Hold down every single button on the remote for five seconds. Then, replace the batteries.

Next, unplug the power cord from the Roku, wait for five seconds, plug the power cord back into the Roku, and wait for Roku banner.

Ridiculous? Yes. Did it work? Also yes. :)

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.

Make sure you have connected the cords properly. When you plug into the wrong port, your Roku won’t turn on. Once it turn, you can visit '''Roku.com/link''' to complete the activation process.

I notice if I don't watch tv for awhile, my tv won't turn on either. I normally unplug tv, wait 10 sec & replug. It works everytime, but inspite of saying that, I find it irritating that roku tv's are so temperamental. one always assumes its the remote batteries, but most likely not. the reboot always works.
