You can tackle this issue by reading this article.

TCL is a consumer electronics company and a player in the global TV industry.

According to sources, TCL ranks high in the global TV market in terms of sales volume.

HDMI cables supply critical audio and video input to the TV. It is a bridge between the output and input sources.

They are widely used in computers, laptops and TVs. All major consumer devices except phones with a screen come with a HDMI input port.

Why does my TCL TV say no signal when HDMI is plugged in?

There can be a malfunctioning HDMI cable. It can also be a problem with the HDMI ports on the TCL Roku TV or the source you are using.

Your TV may have multiple HDMI ports. Try changing ports. There is a possibility that one port may have stopped working.

There can also be an issue with the source. Make sure that the source device is turned on. Also, ensure it is working properly by checking for defects.
