Videos don't play

It doesn't matter what channel I use. Videos "load" a black screen and nothing happens. The timer shows it is playing, but it's just a dead black screen. "Continue Watching" shows I watched something, but nothing loads or displays.

Re: Videos don't play

These things are just little special purpose computers. Like their big brothers sometimes clearing things out by restarting them is all it needs.

Restart via Settings > System > System restart (Or for Roku TV: Settings > System > Power > System restart)

If a restart doesn't do it, try pulling the power plug to the device for a minute or so then plugging it back in.
