USB requires more power message

The message “This USB device requires more power.” Only problem is I have no USB connected to my tv. There is nothing connected to my tv and I can’t make it go away. I have reset my tv multiple times. The message popped up when I plugged LED lights to the tv but I unplugged them as soon as I seen the message. Anyone know how I can remove the message? Pls and thank you!

What are you talking about? Do you even own a Roku? If so which model?

Re: USB requires more power message

Do you mean you own a Roku TV? Or a TV with a Roku device? If it’s a device which model? If it’s a TV which manufacture?

Re: USB requires more power message

What the heck do you have plugged into the TV? I see some sort of box and something else. Roku doesn’t make TV’s so you should ask TCL. All you need for a TCL Roku TV to work is the power cord. Is that box for your cable tv? Whatever that box is your tv is saying it needs more power.

@Monicaa17-

These things are just special purpose computers. Like their big brothers sometimes clearing things out by restarting them is all they need to straighten things out. (On a Roku TV with "Fast start" enabled, turning it off and back on just puts it into a standby state and back out; it does NOT give you a complete restart.)

Roku TVs can be restarted via Settings > System > Power > System restart, or you can pull the power plug for a few seconds then plugging it back in.
