Step 4 Complete Guided Setup

Establish your network connection and bring out your inner geek. You can do it!

It’s the final stretch–hurray!

Let’s Connect

Your TV will automatically detect wireless networks in your area. Have your network name and password handy and follow the easy on-screen setup. Once you’re connected, your TV will automatically update with the latest software–plus you can start streaming the entertainment you know and love. Unlike other TVs, your new TCL · Roku TV automatically receives regular software updates in the background when it’s connected to the internet. This allows it to give you a better and better experience.

If you aren’t ready to connect your TV to a wireless network, you can still use it as a regular TV.

And setup is done…congratulations!

Continue using the remote to personalize your Home screen and channel line-up, stream movies, and so much more. If you have an antenna or cable connected, just click the tuner tile to watch broadcast TV channels. The fun has just begun!

Laptop example

Your Roku account: During Guided Setup, you’ll be prompted to create your Roku account online at roku.com/link. Your TV will generate a unique code that links your TV to your new account. Roku accounts are free, and while a valid credit card number is required to create your account, rest assured you will only be charged if you authorize purchases of apps and games from the Roku Channel Store.

Having trouble completing the guided setup? Don’t worry, it’s usually an easy fix.

If you cannot see a picture on your TV

  • Make sure your TV and the device you want to watch (cable box, Blu-ray player, game console, etc.) are turned on and plugged into a working wall outlet.
  • Make sure your power cable is connected.

If you cannot connect to your wireless home network during guided setup

  • Make sure the correct wireless network name is selected.
  • Make sure the wireless network password is correctly entered (the password is case sensitive).
  • Improve wireless signal by rotating the router slightly (even a few inches can help).

If you cannot hear the sound

  • Make sure the TV volume is turned up and not on mute.
  • Try only the TV speakers by disconnecting any connection to audio devices (like headphones or audio-video receivers).

If the TV remote control isn’t working

  • Remove any obstruction and point the remote at the TV’s IR receiver (see Get to know your TV).
  • Try a fresh set of batteries.
  • If the status light on the front of your TV
    flashes once each time you press a remote button, the problem is not with the remote. Unplug the TV and plug it back in.
