Roku TV stuck on black screen please help.

My mom bought a 70" Roku TV after the last one broke. I changed the brightness to "brighter" and the screen flicked off. I've gone through all the tricks online to reset the TV and sometimes it works but now what ever I try to do doesn't work. I'll get a quick flicker of the screen, but that's it. The rest of the TV works fine, it still makes sounds navigating through the menu. Anything else I can do other than a complete reset? I really don't want to take it back to the store to get it repaired. My mom is already angry about me "ing up her TV.

Re: Roku TV stuck on black screen please help.

Most likely there is nothing you can do. Try the steps in this thread https://community.roku.com/t5/Discussions/OS-11-5-Roku-TV-TCL-Black-Screen-on-display/m-p/830524. This did not fix it for the majority of people that are experiencing the issue that sounds identical to yours, so you're probably best off returning it if you can, and go for a different brand.
