How I Fix My TCL TV Won’t Turn On
Change Remote Control Batteries
The first method is to change the batteries on your remote control. Sometimes, all you need is a fresh set of batteries to power your TV. So go ahead and try this simple fix before moving on to the next method.
Check TV Cords and Cable connections
Must check that all the cables are plugged into your TV correctly. Make sure they are all the way plugged in. Sometimes, a power cable can get loose and not give your TV the connection that it needs to power on.
I usually try to plug out a cord and reconnect it to the TV to ensure that it has been fixed appropriately to avoid any loose gap or connection.
Unplug Your TV From Wall Outlet
Power Cycle Your TV
Despite being a two-minute fix, It works well to ensure that no residual power remains and refreshes your TV. Even, It has fixed TCL TV Going Back To Home Screen for me.
First, unplug your TV again and hold the power button on the TV for 30 seconds. This hard reset of your TV will drain any power in your device. Then plug it back in and try turning it on again. If this method works, great! If not, move on to the next one.
Select the Correct Input Source
Make sure your cables and HDMI connections are connected with the correct input source. Sometimes, you have connected your input source to HDMI 2/1. So, You can check and change your input source from the following settings.
Change Power Outlet
The next method would be to plug the TV into a different wall outlet. This will ensure that you’re getting the correct power source for your TV. Maybe try plugging it into a different room’s wall outlet. You might have a particular wall outlet that went bad, and doing this will make sure that you’re getting the correct power source to your TV.
Check & Replace Power Supply Board
- First, remove the TV from its stand and lay it on a flat surface covered with a towel or screen protector. Now, remove the two feet from the bottom of the TV and unplug the power cord.
- Next, you will need to order a replacement power supply board that is compatible with your TV model. You can find this information on the back of your TV or on the old power supply board itself. Now, remove the back panel of the TV and access the old board.
- Now, remove all the screws holding the old power supply board in place and replace it with the new one.
- Make sure that the screws on the new board match the mounting brackets inside the TV.
If you have a faulty Power Supply Board, Your TCL TV will show a black screen. You can head over to the video for a visual approach to this fix.
TCL TV Won’t Turn On Due To Apps Not Working

- Press the Home button on your remote.
- Open the Settings option.
- Select All Apps for better results.

If none of the above methods has helped you, I recommend you apply this final step. This will restore your TV to the exact condition it was in when you bought it. To perform the reset, go into the settings menu, then the system menu, and select advanced system settings, followed by factory reset. Choose the “factory reset everything” option, and your TV will be reset.
You can claim a warranty if your TV is unable to get fixed by the above approach. You can contact TCL Support for this.
