YouTube and A&E No Longer Working On 2710X

Jump to solution

I have two ROKU SE (2710X) and this past week YouTube stopped loading. I tried the usual adding and removing channel and rebooting on both. Nothing changed. Then yesterday A&E stopped loading. I used the feedback option and reported it to Roku. I also went to YouTube and reported the issue. I'm sure the problem is not my Rokus because it's doing the exact same thing on both. All other apps work fine. I know they are older models but they are still on the update-able list. Any suggestions on how I can get this issue fixed?

Thanks for the note here. 

You'll want to contact each channel (app) provider directly to report this type of issue and request additional support with their channel on the Roku platform. 

In general, you'll want to try removing the channel, then restart your device before adding the channel back again. If that isn't clearing up the issue, please continue to follow up with the channel provider to request additional updates. We'll pass the feedback along to them as well. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

Hi Tanner. I had the same issue with Youtube not working. I uninstalled, etc. to no avail. I went through a variety of videos and thought I was resetting my Roku but now my Roku device will not work AT ALL. 
Roku works on my cell phone (iphone 8+), however I can now not get my Roku 1 to connect at all. My remote stopped working long ago so I use my cell phone as my remote control. It can't find my device. I have tried everything. I can not click on anything, not even the home buttons on the remote until it connects. I went the entire long holiday weekend with no tv and no access to my Roku. Honestly, I am ready to throw it out the window. 

I get the home screen but the light is blinking on the Roku box and it says not connected. Any suggestions? This allstarted because Youtube was not working on my Roku.

Seems to be the only answer ever given in this forum is to remove, re-boot, reinstall. If you read my post, you will see that I did that  and contacted the providers before I posted here. I've been a ROKU user for years but I guess it might be time to explore other options.

Having the same problem with YouTube and 2710x. Already did the remove and reinstall, checked the system update version. All that is done. Any actual suggestions to address this problem would be nice.

Roku 1 and SE.  One on Comcast, other on AT&T.  Same problem, same time frame after Roku sent out system update.  Obvious Roku system problem.  I know, they are old.  Just say no longer supported if that is the case.

My 2710X also stopped displaying Youtube early December 2019. The screen is zoomed into the upper left corner and text on all menus is garbled and unreadable. Changing display settings has no effect. Reinstalling the channel actually made things worse. Now I can't even log into my account or link the tv code because I can no longer view the screen properly. Youtube was the primary reason I bought the Roku and I've been a loyal Roku customer for years but I agree it's time to see what their competition has to offer. Clearly Roku doesn't support its products or care about its customers. We need to search for an alternate content provider we can trust.
