Credits screen minimizing and going black on streaming services

Hello, every time I watch a movie/TV show on my Roku TV when the credits minimize the screen goes black and I can only hear the audio. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

Re: Credits screen minimizing and going black on streaming services

Hi, @Binweld

Greetings and welcome to the Roku Community.

Thanks for sharing the issue you've experienced with us, and we're sorry to hear about the trouble. May we know what content this issue occurs? Also, what channel/app is accessed while streaming this content? Further, have you already tried a system restart as a troubleshooting step to resolve the issue?

Please keep us posted.

All the best,
Kash

Re: Credits screen minimizing and going black on streaming services

Hi Kash, thanks for getting back to me. It’s on any streaming service (Netflix, Crave, Disney+) on any tv show or movie. As soon as the screen minimizes to preview the next episode or other content the minimized screen goes completely black, you can hear the audio but can’t see anything.

I have already tried a system reset and restored the TV to factory settings but the problem persists.

We appreciate your efforts in the attempts to resolve the issue. We'd like to ask for additional details for us to investigate this case. Kindly provide us with the following:

  • Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version. (These can all be found in Settings > System > About).
  • What channel and what version/build are the affected channels? (This can be found by 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, and provide us with this ID).

Re: Credits screen minimizing and going black on streaming services

Hello,

I have been having this exact same problem for months and it's driving me nuts. It happens in any app that minimizes the credits screen on a movie or TV show, bringing up a menu with other shows or movies to watch. Today it happened in the Max app. Please let me know if there is a way to fix it. Here are my details --

Device: TCL Roku TV, model 55R635

Serial number: X003001WFUUJ

Device ID: S05EY08WFUUJ

Software: Version 12.5.5, build 4174-88

Channel: Max, version 55.3, build 1 (though it happens in multiple other channels, as well)

GC version: 10.5.39

Timestamp: 2024-01-12T03:29:26Z

Issue ID from tracker: UJ-016-049

And here is a link to a video I took with my phone of the issue occurring. You can see the credits going black as the window is minimized, and then the screen remains black when I select the window and maximize it again. Please let us know if there is a fix for this.
