Device S/N doesn't match account

I checked the S/N on my devices against what is in my account and they do not match. 
How can I update the S/N on my account?

Re: Device S/N doesn't match account

If they don't match you've got a problem.  Does the email address that shows up under Settings->System->About match the email address you used to log in at https://my.roku.com ?  Also, don't confuse the serial number with the Device ID.

Checked all suggestions, does not match. The device ID is correct as all packaging but online site reads that the devices start with YH*******. Please respond with corrections/instructions to protect our product and services.

Thank You.

Re: Device S/N doesn't match account

@SDMartin, for reasons only Roku knows, the SN on the package and the device itself are no longer the serial number Roku will show under Settings->System->About or that shows under your linked devices at https://my.roku.com .  Ridiculous things like this are par for the course with Roku.  In general, when you're asked for a serial number use the one from the settings or your online account.
