This post is for all those who are able to switch on their Roku player but find a problem in seeing the video on their TV. If your Roku is not powering on or you don’t hear the audio on it, then follow the suggestions mentioned below:
You must ensure that the Roku player is connected to the TV directly instead of connected through A/V receiver or soundbar. You need to disconnect the device from the following devices and direct the player directly to the TV.
The most common reasons why you can’t see the video on TV are:
- Wrong input selected on TV: This is a common mistake which one makes Roku media player. If your TV has more than one input source or you have connected the multiple devices to the TV like a gaming console, cable box or player, then must match the input with the one on which you have connected Roku player.
- Check the input port on which your Roku is connected. You will find HDMI1, 2 AUX, and Video in 1, etc. behind the TV.
- The way of changing the input sources are different for different TV models, but you will find the remote button on every remote.
- Search for the button on TV remote you will find the button by name of ‘Source’, ‘Aux’, ‘Video’ or something like this. Press the button and keep on pressing until the desired channel is selected.
- Wait for 10 seconds after pressing the button. The TV will detect the input source if any.
- If the menu is displayed, you will find the arrow buttons on the TV remote from where you can select the right input and press ‘Enter’. Select one input at a time and wait for 10 seconds.
- If TV detects no video input at all, then you will find ‘No video’ message or ‘No signal detected’ on the screen.
- Video cable not properly connected to TV or cable is faulty:
- First of all, check whether the cable is properly connected to the Roku player and to the HDMI port of TV or not. If you use the Roku streaming stick, then you can connect it directly to the HDMI port of the TV.
- If you have some knowledge of cable, then check for faults if any. You can replace the cable with a new one in such a case.
- Problem with the TV:
- If more than one HDMI port is available on the TV, then check Roku player by trying connecting to the different port.
- If the problem of video still persists, then try connecting the Roku player to the alternate TV. If the problem is resolved, then it means there is a problem with the TV.
- If everything else fails:
- If after implementing the above-mentioned steps, you are still facing any problem, then disconnect and reconnect all cables including power cable.
