Left side of tv blinks slightly darker

Jump to solution

TCL Model 55R617-CA

Roku TV 7120X

The tv screen has started to blink/flash a slightly darker colour down the left hand side of the screen.  It is approximately one third of the screen.  It is subtle but definitely noticeable.  It doesn’t black out.  The flashing/blinking is every couple OS seconds.

I looked online, but can’t seem to find similar issues.  Please help.

That sounds like a hardware issue that you'll have to contact TCL about.  TCL manufactured the TV; Roku only supplied the software.

My tv has started doing that same thing. Were you able to figure out the problem by chance? I’ve been looking and I can’t seem to find a solution to fixing it or I’m missing it somewhere. If you were able to figure it out would you mind letting me know by chance? I’d greatly appreciate it!! Thank you!

Hey @AmyWalkenhorst

I hope you're doing well.

Have you tried contacting the TV manufacturer to inquire further? I'd suggest starting there to see what options or suggestions they can provide. Each Roku TV manufacturer provides direct support and warranty services for their products running the Roku OS.

For a list of Roku TV manufacturers contact information, visit our Community post here: Contacting Support for Your Roku TV

All the best,
