I learned it, so I don’t face Wi-Fi problems in the future. I know Wi-Fi problems, especially when a new Netflix show is out painful.
I’ve listed Damon’s tricks and ways. Damon encouraged me to help. So keep reading!

014.50 is an error code of TCL ROKU TV not connecting to Wi-Fi. It’s the wireless connection error that is common.
The unpowered Wi-Fi won’t connect to anything. An unstable connection disconnects or doesn’t connect.

Causes and fixes
The causes of Wi-Fi disconnecting with verified solutions are below.
Issues with network/router
Starting with the router, power is necessary. If the router isn’t powering and you are trying to connect it to the TV, it won’t work.
Turning the router on will work. If it’s on, try using it on your smartphone or laptop. If it doesn’t work on them, restart the router.
If still nothing, power cycle it. Disconnect the router for 20 sec and then reconnect.
If the router isn’t the problem, the network is. Call a technician or the Wi-Fi company and state the problem.
They’ll solve it or send someone to solve the Wi-Fi issue. Rebooting may work.
The Wi-Fi may be too far from the TV, and thus, signals are too weak, and the TV won’t connect.
Bring the router close or take the TV close. You can also install a signal booster or catcher for a rich connection.
If the signal strength is good, the device will connect smoothly. Check your phone for signal strength by bringing it closer.
If you want to connect to a secure Wi-Fi, you need to know the correct Wi-Fi password.
Check the password under the router, and check spelling and numbers. You may have inserted it incorrectly before. Forget the old password and add it again. It’ll work.
Sometimes the password isn’t the same as the one under the router. This is because you or someone else has changed it.
Add the new password yourself or ask the family members who have changed it for the new one. Connect it. The correct password will connect without a problem. Check capital letters if mistaken.
Certain firmware is required for Wi-Fi connections sometimes. Your’s may be outdated. You need to update to the latest firmware version to connect. Hardware and software need the latest version. Add hardware by asking at a tech store. The software update is easy. Read the steps.
