Sorry, but having a TV in the bedroom works great for me when I am having trouble falling asleep. I usually don't have problems unless something is bothering me about family or work. A quiet bedroom only leaves me thinking about the problem. So, I find a "non-challenging" comedy TV show that I either stream or have on a DVD, put it on a sound level where I can just hear it, and close my eyes. Listening to the sitcom distracts me from thinking about my problems, and the light comedy puts me in a better mood. Eventually, I just fall asleep since, as I said, these are "non-challenging".
I never watch anything "heavy", though, immediately prior to sleep. It may either delay me falling to sleep as I am thinking about it, or I get traumatic dreams as my brain is processing it.
