Overheating issue on YouTube

My 43" TCL gives me a overheating warning but only when I am viewing videos on YouTube! And then again only on certain channel subscriptions on YouTube.  If I  switch to another video the warning disappears. This only happens when I am watching YouTube and never on any other channels or streaming service.

Re: Overheating issue on YouTube


Thanks for the post.

This would appear to be a hardware related issue. Have you tried contacting TCL support yet to inquire further? I'd suggest starting there to see what options or suggestions they can provide. Each Roku TV manufacturer provides direct support for their products running the Roku OS.

You can reach them here: https://support.tclusa.com/televisions or at 1-877-300-8837.

Please keep us posted what you find out.

Re: Overheating issue on YouTube

I have this same issue, only YouTube. Nothing else overheats. I have a roku stick, so it's not the TV
