For most Roku users, the Roku TV is considered a one-stop solution for all your entertainment needs. The device can connect itself with a wide array of devices and helps you stream content from various sources. However, it can sometimes also show some problems related to sound issues.
But not to worry, as here are a few solutions that will help you fix your issue straight away without spending much time googling about the problems. Just go through them one by one and try to solve them accordingly.
1. Inspect the HDMI Connection On Your Roku
Almost all experts agree that loose or poor quality HDMI connection is responsible for most of the problems Roku users face. If you are also facing the same problem with your Roku TV, it would be better to inspect its HDMI connection.
- There are chances that when using your device, frequent plugging and unplugging of the HDMI cable to attach or detach your Roku TV can make the HDMI connection lose in the ports.
- It, in turn could lead to disruptions in sound immediately after upping it back into use.
- And therefore, to fix this issue, all you require is to inspect all your tv’s ports for any damage or breakage in its connections with cable or satellite box.
Make sure that both devices are plugged in fully to their designated ports. Also, check whether you have connected the cable to an audio or video port. If none of this solves your problem, try plugging your Roku into another television using different cables to ensure that it isn’t a hardware issue with either TV.
2. Swap Your HDMI Inputs
If you find that the problem is not with your Roku TV’s HDMI connection but with its audio settings instead, you can try out this simple solution of swapping your HDMI inputs. When the users change their input source from one to another on their tv, it helps resolve the sound issues.
- So all you need to do is unplug the HDMI cable from your Roku TV and plug it into a different port on your tv.
- After that, restart your Roku device so that it can re-establish the connection with the new port.
- And if, by chance still, the issue persists, then switch to a different HDMI input on your TV.
3. Check Your Roku’s Audio Mode Settings
If swapping the HDMI inputs didn’t work, check the audio settings on your Roku to see if there’s an option that enables or disables sound output. To do this:
- Go to the home screen of your Roku device and scroll down until you find settings. Select it from the list on the left side of the screen. On some TVs, you will need to select “Settings” on your TV first before successfully accessing this page through Roku.
- Scroll down and click “System.” This will take you to a menu where multiple options are found under “Advanced System Settings.”
- Select “Audio” from the list. This will take you to a new menu with audio options.
- Scroll down and check the box next to “Output to TV.” If this option is unchecked, your Roku is not sending any sound to your TV. Check the volume bar on the right side of the screen to see if it’s at zero. If it is, this means your Roku is not sending any sound to your TV.
- Click on the “Volume” tab and ensure that the volume is turned up. You can also use the arrow buttons on your remote to raise or lower the volume.
- Under the “Mute” tab, make sure that mute is turned off.
- If any of these settings are not what you want, you can change them by selecting the corresponding box and entering new values.
- Also, set the S/PDIF option to Dolby Digital. Confirm tv’s audio settings and check cable connections again and you’ll be done.
4. Check Volume And Mute Settings
Another common reason for sound issues on Roku TVs can be incorrect volume or mute sound settings. Hence, it is advised that you check these settings and see if they have been changed accidentally.
To do so, go to Settings->System->Volume on your Roku device and then adjust the volume level as per your requirement. After that, test out the sound again to see if it has been fixed or not.
5. Restart Your Roku Device
If all of the above solutions haven’t worked, your Roku device may have a software issue. In this case, the best solution is to restart your Roku. To do this, open up the Roku menu and press the Home button on your Roku remote. Then scroll down to Settings and press OK. From here, select System and then Power. Select Restart and follow the on-screen instructions. You can also use Roku mobile app in this regard.

To do this, open up the Roku menu by pressing the Home button on your remote. Then scroll down to Settings and press OK. From here, select System and then Reset. Select Reset complete and follow the on-screen instructions.
7. Check Your Wi-Fi Connection
If you are experiencing TCL Roku TV sound issues, the first thing you should check is your Wi-Fi connection. Make sure that your Roku device is connected to the same network as your soundbar or speaker system. If it’s not, try connecting them both to the same network.
8. Disable Audio Leveling
If you are still having trouble getting sound from your Roku TV, you may need to disable audio leveling. To do this, go to Settings > System > Audio and disable the “Enable Audio Leveling” setting. This will make all sounds louder or softer depending on their original volume, so keep that in mind if you decide to disable this setting.
