After Working Just Fine, My Roku TV Suddenly Won’t Turn On

After working just fine, my Roku TV won’t turn on. I usually turn it on thru the app or with the remote. If there is an on button I cannot locate it. 

I did take the steps listed below. What wise can I try? Thank you in advance


steps I have already tried: 


  • Unplug the TV: Unplug the TV from the power outlet and wait for at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in. Then, try turning it on again.
  • Check the remote control: Ensure that the batteries in the remote control are working properly. You can test this by pointing the remote at a smartphone camera and pressing any button. If the remote is working, you should see a light emitting from the front of the remote through the camera lens.
  • Try a different power outlet: If the TV still does not turn on, try plugging it into a different power outlet.
  • Check the power cord: Ensure that the power cord is securely connected to both the TV and the power outlet.

Re: After Working Just Fine, My Roku TV Suddenly Won’t Turn On

There's definitely a power button, but they're getting harder and harder to find.  Search around the area of the manufacturer's name/logo.  On my TCL it's a good inch behind the "TCL" logo in the middle bottom of the TV.  Assuming your TV isn't made by Roku (few are), you should contact the manufacturer (onn, TCL, etc.).
