No Sound with Pictures on Roku Player? Try These Fixes!

Hello Community,

If you're experiencing a picture on your Roku player but no sound, don't worry! Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try to get things back in sync:

  1. Power cycle your Roku device: This can refresh the connection and sometimes resolve temporary glitches.
  2. Re-seat the HDMI cable: Ensure the connection between your Roku and TV is secure.
  3. Check your audio settings: Make sure the default audio output on your TV is set to the speakers connected to your Roku.
  4. Advanced Troubleshooting:
    • Try a different HDMI cable.
    • Try a different HDMI port on your TV.
    • If using an external audio device, bypass it and connect directly to your TV. If the sound works, troubleshoot the external device.
    • Test with a different TV (if possible).

We have additional troubleshooting articles available:
