Roku is an HDMI stick, a video player or TV which stream content from the Internet through a router or WiFi. To get started, the first thing you need to do is to power the device. As soon as it is plugged in the device, it should then be connected to a network of your choice. Once this has been done, you should then select your preferred channel and start streaming the content. After you finish streaming and you are satisfied, your next step should be how to switch it off, turn it to standby mode or restart it. Notice that these devices have no switch to power them on and off. They are designed this way so that they can download necessary updates via the Internet.
We have said that Roku devices have no switches to turn them on and off. However, there are methods you can follow which can help you to turn it on and off.
1、Unplug the Streaming Player
This is one of the methods you can use if you want to turn it off completely. Once you finish using the device, all you need to do is to unplug it from the viewing device. If you connected the device to your TV using the AV cord, unplug it from your device. If it is an HDMI cord, the best way to go about it is to remove it from the port. After that, you may need to remove the A/C adapter, and this will help disconnect it from the power and turn it off.
2、Unplug Roku stick from HDMI
If your viewing device provides power using an HDMI port, remove the streaming stick, and it will go off. Also, if the HDMI port is not providing the power, still unplug the rod from the wall.
3、Unplug the Roku TV
If you use only the remote "turn off" button, the television will go on "Standby." Just unplug the TV cord from the source of power, and it will go off entirely, This is also how to turn off it.
It is important to note that Roku 3 and other lower models have no power button and the only option is always to shut it down. However, Roku 4 comes with a turn off feature which shows how to turn off it. Just go to "Setting"- System-Power. Then select "Auto power off," or "power off" you can also select the "System Restart" feature if you want to reboot.
Notice that by using the remote to turn the device on or off will only put your TV on a standby mode. Thus, ensure that you always unplug the cord from the outlet. This way, you will be guaranteed that it is turned off.
