Several other TCL Roku TV owners have also faced the same issue of their TCL Roku TV Airplay not working.

The good news is that there are a few things you can try to get the Airplay working again as before.

In this post,  I will cover comprehensively all of the possible reasons why Airplay might not be working on your TCL Roku TV, as well as a few easy fixes.

TCL Roku TV Airplay Not Working

Let’s get started!

Common Reasons Why Airplay Is Not Working on TCL Roku TV

Here are the reasons why the Airplay might not be working on your TCL Roku Smart TV:

1. Airplay Not Supported by TCL Roku TV

Airplay is a feature that all TCL Roku Tv models do not have.

To check if your TCL Roku TV supports Airplay, go to Settings > Airplay. If the Airplay menu is not present, that means your TV does not support Airplay.

Also, if you are using a TCL Roku Roku TV, then you need to run Roku OS 9.4 or above to get support for the Airplay 2.

2. TCL Roku Tv’s Firmware Issues

To check whether you have a firmware issue, check if your TCL Roku TV’s firmware is out of date and has not been updated recently.

Outdated TV Firmware can cause compatibility issues with Airplay connectivity.

To Check the Latest TCL Roku Tv Software update you can go to Settings > Support > Software Update.

If you see an update prompting you to install, then you can follow the prompt and get your latest software updates.

3. Airplay Mirroring Disabled

In some cases, Airplay mirroring might be disabled on your TCL Roku TV. This can happen if you’ve previously disabled it or if it’s been turned off by another user.

To enable Airplay mirroring, go to Settings > Airplay > Airplay Mirroring.

4. There might be a problem with your TCL Roku TV’s Airplay receiver

If none of the above solutions work, there might be a problem with your TCL Roku TV’s Airplay receiver. 

To check if there is a problem with your TCL Roku TV’s Airplay receiver, go to the “Settings” menu and then select “About”. 

If you see an error message that says “Airplay receiver not found”, there is a problem with your TCL Roku TV’s Airplay receiver and you will need to contact TCL Roku customer support for further assistance.

5. Your Apple Device May not have support For Airplay

If you are using an older Apple device, it may not have Airplay support. Check Apple specifications whether your Device Supports Airplay or Airplay 2 to stream on your TCL Roku TV.

Easy Fixes for Airplay Not Working on TCL Roku TV

Now that we’ve gone over some of the possible reasons why Airplay might not be working on your TCL Roku TV, let’s take a look at some easy fixes.

1. Restart Your TCL Roku TV

One of the simplest and most effective ways to fix this problem is to restart your TV.

This will often fix any minor software glitches that might be causing the problem.

To restart your TCL Roku TV, go to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Restart.

2. Reset Your TCL Roku Smart TV

If restarting your TCL Roku TV doesn’t work for you, you can simply try resetting it. This will reset all of your TV’s settings to their factory defaults.

There are several cases where there remain issues within your Tv settings and a simple reset fixes that. 

To reset your TCL Roku TV, go to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset.

3. Update Your TCL Roku TV’s Firmware

If your TCL Roku TV’s firmware is out of date, it can cause compatibility issues with Airplay. So, it is always advisable to get the latest firmware update from your TCL Roku Tv.

To check for firmware updates, go to Settings > Support > Software Update. If there is a new firmware update available, follow the prompts to install it.

4. Connect Your TCL Roku TV to the Internet

Another simple fix is to make sure that your TV is connected to the Internet. Airplay requires an Internet connection in order to work properly.

To check if your TV is connected to the Internet, go to Settings > Network > Status. If it says “Not Connected,” try reconnecting to your Wi-Fi network.

Generally, the Airplay does not require Internet Connectivity to stream and it can work like connecting to a Local Network as a Hotspot to your Apple Devices like Smartphone or iPad. 

However, often we see errors while setup the Airplay without an internet connection. It’s better to have internet connectivity while setup.

Also, if you are using Apple Tv, during the setup, you will require Wi-Fi connectivity.

5. Contact TCL Roku Customer Support

If none of the above fixes work, your best bet is to contact TCL Roku customer support. They will be able to help you troubleshoot the problem and find a solution.
