Where Is The Power Button On TCL Roku TV + Alternatives

If you can’t locate the TCL Roku TV power button, you are not alone. In many TCL Roku TV models, the power button is hidden to maintain a sleek design, which can make it a bit challenging to locate.

To find your TCL Roku TV power button, check underneath the TV, near the TCL logo, or on the back part of the sides of the TV. You can also use the Roku App, Roku’s remote, or a universal remote. If the button isn’t working, try checking the power supply and HDMI cables, or power-cycling your TV.

This article provides a detailed guide on where you can locate your TCL Roku TV’s power button, as well as some additional options to use for powering on/off your TV, which we have mentioned before, Additionally, we will provide some common issues and troubleshooting steps.

Locating the Power Button on Your TCL Roku TV

When you first set up your TCL Roku TV, locating the power button might not be immediately obvious. However, it is essential to be familiar with the power button’s location in case you misplace your remote or need to perform a manual reset.

Typical Placement on the TCL Roku TV

The power button on a TCL Roku TV is typically found in one of the following locations, but it may vary slightly depending on the specific model:

  • Under the TCL Logo: One common location for the power button is directly under the TCL logo at the center of the bottom bezel. Reach below the logo on the TV’s front side, and you should feel the button on the underside of the frame.
  • Back of the TV: If you don’t find the power button in the middle underside, it might be located on the back of the TV. In some cases, the button can be found in the middle of the back panel, while other models might place the button on the right side, middle of the panel.
  • Along the bottom bezel: Another possible location is near the bottom bezel, but on the TV’s right side instead of the center. This power button placement would still be underneath the frame but closer to the corner.

Keep in mind that TCL Roku TV models might have slight variations in the power button location. However, most models feature the power button in one of these three general areas.
