Youtube Chanel not working

My Roku 3 was playing Youtube videos fine last night but will not load any today. Other channels working fine, also Youtube working fine on iPad and Macbook. Live in north SF Bay Area. What's up?

Re: Youtube Chanel not working

If I try to let the channel load, my Roku just goes into a restart. Looked to see if there is an update but it says I am up to date. Also removed and reinstalled the channel but did not fix. Out of ideas.

Did you reboot the Roku after removing but before re-installing? If not, then the removal was not successful. The best way to reboot it to completely unplug it for 20-30 seconds.

Re: Youtube Chanel not working

About an hour ago YouTube stopped working normally on my Roku setup. What I get is a very dark gray screen with black lettering in a column along the left side of the screen describing the videos. If I click on one of the descriptions the video described comes up. But it's not an acceptable way to use YouTube!

Later

Okay, I tried deleting and then reinstalling the YouTube app and it worked.

Me too..  Tonight.. first time ever..   In  year.   I have the TCL, 4k HDR, 55"
dark screen with no videos to load.    But you can still back out of the app and it will close if you mentally remember to go back twice then right, then enter..  haha
