Why does my Roku TV keep turning off?

Roku and the TV manufacturers have not provided any explanations as to why this could happen. It does seem to be related to some driver update, although it is not officially confirmed.

How can I stop my Roku TV from turning off?

Roku community has provided some troubleshooting tips, but some might require you to reset your TV completely. This can be frustrating as you will need to log in again to all your accounts and re-configure everything. You should try the easiest method first to avoid having to redecorate everything after fixing the problem.

  1. You should check for a system update. You can turn on your TV if you are able to. To do this, go into Settings > > Update.

  2. In the menu, turn off HDMI-CEC. Navigate to Setting > System Control other Devices (CEC),, and make sure you have not checked all boxes. Restart your TV.

  3. Allow your TV to remain unplugged for several moments. You can plug it back in after a while. This will cause the whole system to reboot. It may also resolve any problems the TV is having.

  4. Unplug all externally connected devices from your television. This includes HDMI connections and audio connections to sound bars. They can sometimes cause problems with your TV, so it is worth unplugging them. You can also try plugging in each one individually to see if that solves the problem.

  5. To check if any devices that are connected to the TV have an option to turn it on or off, you should first check their settings. You can turn the TV off on consoles such as the Xbox, so you might consider disabling this feature to resolve your problem.

  6. If your TV turns on by itself and you are using the Roku mobile application, close the app before turning off your TV. Sometimes, the TV may register the Roku mobile app while you are still using it and turn it on again.

  7. Reset your TV completely. You can do this in one of two ways. This can be done through the settings by going to Setting > > Advanced Settings, and then choosing factory reset. This will remove all of the contents from your TV’s system and reset it to the original state it was in when you took it out of the box.

    You can also press and hold down the Reset button at the back or side of the TV. To complete the process, you must hold it down for at most 15 seconds. Once the process is completed, your TV will automatically reboot.

  8. If you have trouble resetting your TV, the next step is to set the TV in customer mode. You can still download and use apps as normal, but this may fix the problem of your TV randomly turning off when you use it. You can reset it and make it work as a consumer television if it does not.

If the problem persists after resetting the TV, contact the manufacturer to find out what warranty coverage is available. If possible, have the warranty replaced. You may have to consider other options if your warranty is expired or the manufacturer refuses to replace it.
