My Android TV Takes a While to Turn On

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

There's a slight delay before your Android TV™ device turns on after you plug in the power cord. The power buttons at the back of the TV and on the remote won't work during this short period of time, and the illumination LED won't light up right away. This is normal operation. 

If the Illumination LED setting is set to Off, the illumination LED in the middle bottom part of your TV won't light up at all. Select Illumination LED in the TV settings to turn it on.

  1. On your supplied remote control, press the HOME button.
  2. Select Settings or the gear icon.
  3. Under the TV category, select Illumination LED.
  4. Select from the following:
    • Demo
    • Auto brightness adjust
    • Dark
    • Simple response
