Amazon Prime not working on Streambar

5/20/22 Amazon Prime will not load / start. I tried to reinstall the app after doing a restart on the Roku... It is still unavailable. Internet connection shows as being excellent. Not sure what to do next.

Re: Amazon Prime not working on Streambar

Hi @DB1967

Thanks for the post.

Does the issue only occur on Amazon Prime Video or across other channels installed on your Roku Streambar? Please let us know as well how did you restart your Roku. Is it by unplugging the power adapter or through the System menu? We'll be able to further assist you from there.


All the best,
Kariza

Re: Amazon Prime not working on Streambar

I restarted via the system once and also by disconnecting from the power (for 30 seconds) once. It is only Amazon Prime that is not starting / loading, everything else is working correctly. I also rebooted the router just to be clear there was no issues there. The internet signal is reported as excellent by the streambar (we have about 20 mbs connectivity). Clueless as to what is going wrong.

After removing a channel, best practice is to restart your Roku to clear its memory cache before reinstalling the channel.  Without the restart you may not get a clean reinstall.

Depending on your Roku model and Roku version number you'll find the System restart option under either Settings > System > Power or under Settings > System.

-Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found be selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
-tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times)

Once we have this information, we will be able to pass it along to the appropriate team to investigate further.

Re: Amazon Prime not working on Streambar

Same thing happened to me with the 11.0.0 update. I bought a Firestick which fixed the issue. Somebody has screwed up the update, but Roku won’t acknowledge it.

I too have purchased a Firestick... Unfortunate for Roku. Hopefully someone will fix the issue before more of us migrate over to Amazon world.
