Does Roku Express have a white power indicator light?

I am trying to figure out if it shipped to me defective; I have plugged it in to 3 different TVs and 3 different outlets, there is no indication it is powered on and none of the HDMI ports are registering that they have something connected. The user manual states that “most models” have the white power indicator light but doesn’t state which do and which don’t.

Re: Does Roku Express have a white power indicator light?

All of the little boxes have a power indicator that should come on when you apply power.  I believe some of the sticks may not have any kind of indicator.  Note that the power indicator will flash when you press a button on the remote and go off when the screensaver kicks in.
