I get no roku menu but when I plug in Nintendo to same port I get Nintendo screen??

I have connect my roku to my TV and do not get the menu from roku. I took every thing out and put my nintendo back in the same port using the red, white and yellow pulgs and nintendo menu shows. What is wrong?

I have roku exprerss +.

I have a toshiba 51H83 TV with no hdmi port hence the use of the composite cable

power issues

As it turns out I had a defective electrical socket. 

But it would be helpful in the set-up instructions to say that after plugging in the power cord that a light should appear on the right side of the roku.  

I had plugged in my roku and got no picture. Broke it down and reinserted my nintendo and it worked. So I moved the roku to another TV and on comes the little light o the roku. Hmmmmm. I went back and changed electrical sockets and boom all works.

Please add that when attached to power you should see a light come on.
