Roku TV Battery Draining Remotes

I have a 2014 Roku TV. Then original remote was damaged last winter and I bought a new one from Amazon. It works but why does it drains the batteries every week?

The previous remote’s batteries worked for years before we had to change them. 

Is there a fix for this?

Hey @upandbalminess

Thanks for posting here in the Community!

Please be advised that remotes for Roku TVs are manufactured directly by the TV manufacturer. We would recommend reaching out to their support team to report the issue and get help.

For a list of Roku TV manufacturers contact information, visit our Community post here: Contacting Support for Your Roku TV

Thanks for the follow up.

Have you tried contacting from whom you purchased the remote to see what they can do regarding your remote issue to see what assistance they can provide?

Please keep us posted.
