Hisense Roku TV Blinking Red Light (QUICK Fix in 2022!)

Hisense Roku TV blinking red light is an indication that your TV is having difficulty connecting to your network or there is low or insufficient power being supplied to your TV. In some cases, the red light blinks 2 times repeatedly, and in other cases it just flashes continuously.

If your Hisense Roku TV red light blinks 2 times, then it is most likely a connection issue indicating that your TV is unable to connect to your Wi-Fi network. However, if you Roku TV flashes red light continuously, then it is likely a low or insufficient power issue.

In this guide, I am going to show you how to fix your TV in both scenarios.

So, without any further ado, let’s dive right in!

Hisense Roku TV Blinking 2 Times

Hisense Roku TV red light flashing twice is an indication that your Roku TV is unable to connect to your network router. This can happen after restarting your network router or disconnecting your Hisense Roku TV from the network connection. To fix it, you need to do a network connection check on your Roku device.

1. Do a Network Connection Check

You need to check the status and signal strength of your internet connection on your Hisense Roku TV. If the connection check is successful, the flashing red light will stop. Otherwise, I will show you what to do next.

  • To do that, go to Settings > Network > About, and see if it’s showing ‘Connected’ or not. 
  • On the same page, you will find the signal strength, is it showing ‘Poor’, ‘Good’ or ‘Excellent’?

If the network  is not connected or the signal strength is poor, this might be the reason why your Roku device is lagging when streaming. 

  • Finally, click on Check Connection.

  • You Roku device will start checking your Wireless/Wired connection and Internet connection.

  • Once the check is complete, you should see a prompt showing ‘Connection check was successful

Hisense Roku TV connection check was successful

Now, your Hisense Roku TV should stop blinking twice as long as the connection check was successful.


2. Restart Network Router & Roku TV

If the connection test was not successful and your Hisense Roku TV is still blinking red light twice, then you need to restart your network router and Roku TV. Once both devices restart, go ahead and connect your Roku TV back to the network router and the flashing red light should stop.

To restart your Roku device, unplug it and wait for about 60 seconds before plugging it back again.

Alternatively, you can also restart your Roku via Settings using your remote controller.

  • Press Home on your Roku remote.
  • Scroll and select Settings.
  • Select System.
  • Select System restart.

Once done, restart your network router too and connect your Hisense Roku TV back to the router. Once done, you will stop seeing red light blinking twice on your Roku TV.

If your Hisense Roku TV won’t turn on, the red light blinks twice, and a simple system restart didn’t ix it, then you need to power cycle your Roku device. Here’s how to do that:

  • Unplug your Roku TV from power outlet
  • Leave it unplugged for 60 seconds. While unplugged, press and hold the power button on your Roku TV for 30 seconds
  • Now, plug the TV back into the power outlet
  • Finally, your Roku TV will turn on and the red light blinking twice will also stop.

Now, if your Hisense Roku TV is blinking red light continuously and maybe won’t turn on at all, then you have a power issue on your Roku device. 

If the issue is caused by a low or insufficient power, you may see a message while trying to boot up your device like the one below:

Or it shows up on your Roku home screen.

In some other cases, your Hisense Roku TV may not even turn on and all you will see is the flashing red light.

Whichever the case may be, you can fix it by following the procedures below.

1. Power Cycle Your Roku TV

You can fix your Hisense Roku TV blinking red light issue by power cycling it. This is also known as a soft reset (don’t worry, it won’t delete any of your installed channels or your settings).

Here’s how to do power cycle your Roku TV:

  • Turn off your Roku TV
  • Next, unplug your TCL Roku TV from the power outlet
  • Press and hold down the power button on your TV for 30 seconds
  • After that, plug it back in and turn it on

Now, your Roku device should stop blinking red light.


2. Check the Power Outlet

Another common culprit when it comes to the Hisense Roku TV blinking red light is a faulty power outlet. It can definitely also cause your Hisense Roku TV not to turn on at all.

Your power outlet may be faulty and not delivering sufficient power to your device even though your power cord is working perfectly well.

Hence, try plugging in your TV into another power outlet that you are sure is definitely working. You can of course check that by plugging in another device into the power outlet to check if it works.

In addition, make sure the power cable plugs in tightly into the power socket for proper connection.


3. Clear Roku Device Cache

If you have checked the power outlet, power cable and adapter and your Hisense Roku TV is still blinking red light, then you need to clear the cache. This only applies if your Roku TV is on and blinking red light. If your Roku TV won’t even turn on at all, move to the next tip.

That said, here’s how to do clear your Roku TV cache:

  • First, select the Home tab
  • Now, press the ‘Home’ button on your TV remote 5 times
  • Next, press the ‘Up arrow’ ⬆️ button on your remote once
  • After that, press the ‘Rewind’ ⏪ button twice
  • Then, press the ‘Fast forward’⏩ buttontwice

After a few seconds, your TV will shut down and boot up again and the error message should no longer appear. 


4. Check the Power Cable

Roku TVs come with their own power cord when you purchase them. If the power cable is faulty or you are using a different power cable, then you need to switch the power cable – preferably a Roku power cable.

On the other hand, if you are using a Roku streaming device plugged into the USB port on your Hisense TV, then you need to switch it to a different USB port.

Once you plug it directly into the power outlet, wait for a few seconds or minutes, enough time for the device to adjust to the new power input. If the red light doesn’t stop blinking after a minute or two, then move on to the next step.


5. Try a Different Adapter

In a case scenario where the wall adapter for your Hisense Roku TV is faulty, changing the USB cable will obviously not be enough to fix the issue. In that case, what you want to do is to also get a different compatible adapter to power your Roku tv.

Compatibility is the most important thing here. You have to get an adapter that has the minimum power ratings to power on your Roku device, as seen here

The replacement Roku adapters also often comes with the USB cable to use with them.

So, try that and see if that fixes the issue for you.


6. Contact Roku Support
