Two Quick Fixes
First, you should try resetting your TV; resting can solve your problem in a few minutes. Here are the steps to reset your TCL Roku TV.
- Unplug your TCL from the socket for 60 seconds.
- No again plugging the TV and checking whether the issue fix or not.
If this doesn’t work for you, next you can reboot your TV from settings.
- System Restart and restart the TV. So your TV will turn off automatically and turn back on.
If you’re still facing the issue, let’s go on to the next steps.
Methods 1: Update The Software
By default, the TCL Roku TV is set on auto-updates, so in case of a new update, it will automatically install on your TV. But if you have turned it off, it might cause many issues, including continuous restarting of the TV.
The new software update brings several bug fixes and new features to give a more reliable experience.
Here are the steps to update the Software of TCL Roku TV.
- Go to Settings
- Tap on “System”
- Under System, find “About” -> “Software Update.”
- If your auto-updates are not turned on, tap on a System update to install the latest software.
It’s recommended to keep your Roku TV on “Auto-updates” to avoid any kind of issue in the future.
Method 2: Check The Power Cable
A faulty power cable can also cause your TV to restart its own. Check the power cable and if there might be any fault in the plug; open the plug and check both positive and negative terminals are properly aligned.
Secondly, the loose power connection also causes continuous restarting of the TV.
So you can change the outlet to ensure the fit insertion of a plug. Try the next step if the power cable and outlet are fine.
Method 3: Is Your TCL Roku TV Overheat
Because of overheating, the TCL Roku TV automatically restarts to prevent serious damage. If you’re streaming movies or TV shows in 4K resolution, there are more overheating chances.
So, in this case, the TV will automatically turn off, and you don’t have to worry about it. Keep your Roku TV off for a few minutes, and then turn it on again.
Method 4: Outdated Apps
Few of the apps are required to restart your TCL Roku TV to complete their updating processes. Similarly, a few outdated apps also cause your TV to restart.
So you can check whether apps are updated or not. Just highlight the app through your remote control and press the “Start” on TCL Roku TV remote. Next, tap on “Check For Updates.” This will update the app on your TCL Roku TV.
Method 5: Malware On TV
This one is very frustrating because I have personally faced this issue in the past. The malware on TV can also restart continuously.
The malware can be caused by the USB connection to your Roku TV or your internet connection. In such a case, you must remove the USB from the TV port and update the software or reset your TCL Roku device. In my case, I did the factory reset, and it solved my issue.
Method 6: Factory Reset TCL Roku TV
The factory reset can solve most issues, including restarting the Roku TV, malware, and other bugs.
Here are the steps to factory restart TCL Roku TV.
- From Home Screen go to “Settings”.
- In Settings menu scroll Down to “System.”
- Under System to “Advance System Settings.”
- Tap on “Factory Reset,” and factory reset everything.
Method 7: Fix TCL Roku TV Remote Issues
Sometimes, your TCL Roku Tv keeps restarting due to technical faults in the Roku remote. In this scenario, remote the batteries from the remote for 30 seconds and reinsert them.
Also, remove the headphones from the remote. Now check the TV to see whether it stays on or not.
Method 8: Check For Changes
Any changes you have made previously can also cause your TCL TV to restart repeatedly. So if you have remembered any of the changes that you have made, just simply retrace the step and undo the change, and see what happens.
Alternatively, if you don’t remember what you did with settings, you can go for the reset option; in method # 6, we mention how to factory reset your Tcl Roku TV.
