Turn on your TV followed by pressing any button on the Roku remote control. This will confirm whether or not the Roku device is on a standby or screensaver mode.
Reasons Why This Video Issue May Arise In Roku :
Selection of wrong input on the TV
- Selecting a wrong input may cause video issues, and the majority of people choose a wrong input most of the time. There are multiple inputs at the back or side of the TV to which a device can be connected. But, it is important to choose the right input on the TV that corresponds to the port to which the device has been connected.
- Every TV brand has its own specific features, which may or may not resemble with other brands. So, you need to find out the right button on your TV’s remote to change the inputs. An instruction manual is always given with the TV, so you can follow that. If you are not able to follow the manual, then kindly go through below-mentioned tips:
- There will be a button on your TV’s remote control, most probably at the top that says ‘source’, ‘video’, ‘input’, ‘AUX’, ‘TV/Video’ or something else related to these words. You need to press that button and then, you will see multiple options. Select the right input from those options.
- If your TV cycles through the inputs, then wait 10 seconds between each input presses because your TV is taking time to detect the video.
- In case, you see a menu, then use arrow buttons on the TV remote to choose the right input. Then, press ‘enter’ or ‘select’ to select each input. As your TV cycles through inputs, so wait for 10 seconds between each input presses.
- If the issue still persists after following above-mentioned steps, then you will see either of these messages, ‘no video’ or ‘no signal detected’.
Video Cable Not Properly Connected Or The Cable May Have Gone Faulty
- Take a look whether all the cables that connect your TV with Roku are connected properly. If you are using Roku streaming stick, then check whether it is properly connected to the HDMI port of the TV.
- If any cable is faulty, then get it replaced with a new one.
Something is not right with the TV
- Connect your Roku device to a new input on the TV so as to confirm if the problem is in the television connector.
- If the problem is in the Roku device, then you should try connecting the same to a different TV. With this, you will get a better idea regarding the source of the problem, whether it is Roku or TV.
