Certain applications no longer work after power outage.

My power had gone out while I was using my Roku TV and had shut it down. When I got it back on and tried to access YouTube, it would send me back to the menu. The same thing happened with most of my other applications.

Re: Certain applications no longer work after power outage.

You didnt mention your Roku TV model # and firmware version: Settings/System/About

Known solutions/workarounds for YT and other apps not loading:

1) Check for updates (Settings/System/System updates/Check now) - try again

2) Change your Theme to the Roku Default (Settings/Theme/Restore default theme) - try again

3) Change your Screensaver to a Roku clock (Settings/Theme/Screensavers) - try again

4) Remove YT app, RESTART ROKU (Settings/System/Power/System restart), Add YT app - try again

5) Network connection reset (Settings/System/Advanced system settings) - try again

6) Completely unplug power from Roku for 10-15 minutes - try again

7) Factory reset (Settings/System/Advanced system settings) <--- last resort

Rebooting won't matter since the device would have done so on it's own. You might need to remove the channels, reboot, then add them again.
