Re: my tv is stuck in recovery mode

Hi, @hayliewiedeman7 

Greetings, and welcome to the Roku Community.

Completely Restart the Roku TV

  1. Locate the pinhole Reset button on the back of your TV, near the antenna, HDMI, and audio connections.
  2. Using a straightened paperclip (or similar), press and hold the reset button for at least 30 seconds.
  3. Follow the steps to re-activate the Roku TV once more.

Additionally, you can restart your modem/router before performing the mentioned steps above.

My tcl Roku tv keeps restarting

My tcl roku tv keep restarting! I tried to press the reset button for 15 seconds and going through the set up but it don’t stay on long enough for me to finish the recovery mode/set up. I tried unplugging and plugging it back in. I tried switching the outlet. Nothing is helping! It still keeps restarting
