Roku Won't Turn On

I don't know which button to push to turn on my Roku Express. There is no "on" button. I turn the TV on and hit the other buttons and see the Roku responding but I don't know how to get to the set up screen to be able to connect my account.

Re: Roku Won't Turn On

The signal gets to the tv from the Roku by plugging the HDMI output from the Roku into an HDMI input port on the tv.  You then view this Roku output by setting your tv to display the HDMI port to which the Roku is connected.

There is no power button on a Roku Express - it runs any time it is plugged into an active power source.
