It’s late, and you’re trying to enjoy your favorite TV show without disturbing the rest of your house, but no matter how low you turn the volume, it’s still too loud.
This mainly happens due to the wrong sound settings, malfunctioning buttons on the remote, or software glitches inside the TV itself. If you have any external sound devices connected to the TV, they might also cause an issue.
The rest of this article will cover troubleshooting for your Roku volume connected with the reasons mentioned above.
How To Fix This Issue?
Without further ado, let’s fix that stubborn loud sound on your TV.
1. Remote Troubles
Let’s start with the most obvious, which is your remote.
Here is what I recommend.
Take the batteries off first, give your remote a good old shake, then press each and every button a few times, put fresh batteries in, try using the remote now.
If the sound adjusting is working now, one of the buttons on your remote might have been stuck and was causing all the weirdness with the sound.
Tip: Is you have a spare remote lying around, try connecting it and see if it works. Alternatively, install a Roku Mobile App on your phone that will help you gain control of the sounds, essentially turning your phone into the remote.
2. Power Cycling
Here is one more highly-effective method to try out.
You can do this even before you start messing around with the remote.
- Turn your TV off.
- Unplug it from the wall socket.
- Wait for 1-2 minutes.
- While you are waiting, take the batteries out of your remote.
- Press and hold the power button on the remote for 30 seconds, pointing to the TV.
- Put fresh batteries in.
- Plug your TV back in.
This method will soft-reset both your TV and the remote, potentially eradicating the volume issue.
If the issue was caused by the software glitches, that should definitely help.
Tip: If that didn’t help, you can go ahead and factory reset your TV. But keep in mind, this will erase all the stored data on your TV.
3. Check Your External Devices
If you have a soundbar, or any other external device, connected to your TV, try unplugging it and see if the sounds stop being so loud.
If your loudspeakers are wireless, try connecting them with the cable if possible, that might help.
If that helps, it means your external device is faulty.
You can also do the complete opposite of what I just said.
If you always just used your TV inbuilt speakers, try connecting loudspeakers or any other sound device to your TV, like Roku wireless speakers.
These things are usually more advanced when it comes to sound controlling features.
They will allow you to adjust the sound better than you could through the TV itself.
4. Change Your Volume Mode
As we mentioned earlier, you might be having issues with the sound due to the wrong sound settings.
To eliminate this possibility, scroll over to the Volume mode setting.
You will find three modes available: Off, Leveling, and Night.
- The Off mode means that your volume controls will remain unmodified.
- The Leveling mode will equal all sound levels across different media, preventing that scenario from happening. The audio settings will remain the same even if you change the channel.
- The Night mode levels out audio within the same content. Audio soft as a whisper will become a little louder while blasting sounds, like explosions, soften. This mode is perfect for when you’re watching TV late at night and want to avoid disturbing others.
Try playing around with these 3 settings, one of them might just fix the issue with the loud sound.
As you can see, there are quite a number of things you can do to fix the issue of the volume being way too loud on your Roku TV.
Start with resetting your TV and the remote, then check if your external sound device is causing the issue.
If you never used the external sound device, try connecting it to gain better control of the sound features.
Last, but not least, adjust the volume setting inside your TV.
That’s pretty much it, hope that will help.
