For some users, restarting their Roku device also doesn’t do anything and it just enters an endless reboot loop only to become stuck on the logo screen again.
In this guide, I am going to show you some quick proven ways to fix a TCL Roku TV that is stuck on the red screen in 2023.
Without any further ado, let’s dive right in!
