Screen went dark

So I have had my Roku tv for about 3 years now and I haven’t had any issues until tonight. I went to turn on a movie for my son and the tv screen was completely dark. I went to look closer and you can see faint outlines and logos of my apps and everything else seems to be functioning well but unless I’m .5 in from the screen I can’t even tell if it’s on. Advice?

Re: Screen went dark

You didnt mention your RokuTV Model and maker.

But can you reset it? Or get something somewhere to show normally?

Doesnt sound good.

Roku Ultra ---Ethernet rules---

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

Re: Screen went dark

It sounds like the backlighting failed.

If its under warranty (manufacturer or purchased extended) you should pursue those options.
