In the past 3 weeks or so closed captioning turns on by itself. Every couple of days I have to go into settings and turn it off. For the most part I notice this when I use the Roku channel. I am assuming that this is a due to a Roku software update but I would love for it to stop! Any help? Thank you!
If you are still experiencing an issue with your closed captions turning on by itself after you have turned them off, can you please provide us the following information:
-Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
-does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found be 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)
-steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing
Once we have this information we will be able to pass it along to the appropriate team for further investigation.
All my Roku devices have been doing this as well I have 5 and they keep doing it. I sent in a support screen shot too and nothing I make sure it’s off I’m setting amd at some point every day it’ll just be on in another app and does this across multiple devices amd I am not resetting or re installing anymore because that doesn’t make it stop.
I purchased a ROKU Ultra Model# 4800R on 7/29/2021 direct from ROKU and it was received on 8/3/2021. Current Software version: 10.5.0. build 4208-C2. I have been using this ROKU Ultra Model# 4800R with a Sony TV and all has been well up until about a month ago, when all of a sudden the subtitles started appearing. I tried turning them off multiple times and they just continued. I also disconnected the ROKU from my TV and reconnected it, but it still is constantly displaying subtitles. The subtitles only occur on all YouTube TV channels (not on Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max,..etc).
Today, 12/10/2021, I switched the new ROKU Ultra over to a Toshiba TV and the subtitles appear on all YouTube TV channels also on the Toshiba TV.
Today, 12/10/2021, I then connected an older ROKU Ultra Model#4640X to both the Sony and Toshiba TVs and - no subtitles!!
I also have two other ROKU products (a ROKU 4) and a TCL ROKU TV, and neither of these products have experienced the same problem of not being able to disable closed captioning.
Based on years of selling electronic equipment, it appears to me that the ROKU Ultra Model#4800R, which I purchased direct from ROKU on 7/29/2021 and have only had for 4 months and 7 days is defective.
Please advise how we can replace this defective device with another ROKU Ultra.
I reported this in July and it is still an issue. I'll turn off closed captions and it's ok for a few days and then the issue pops up again. It looks to me like it occurs every time Roku releases an update. I'd really like it fixed. Roku? Are you there? Hello?
I've been having this issue for years - to the point that I've created a macro on my universal remote to turn closed captions to 'Always Off'.
This has happened across multiple Roku devices; currently, I have the Roku Ultra. It occurs across apps: Sling, Discovery Plus, Amazon Prime Video, and Pluto TV. It seems to happen overnight; when we wake up CC is on and will stay on until it is manually turned off.
I've attempted the uninstall, update, and reinstall; however, it's not isolated to a single app or a single Roku device. It does not seem to correspond with a system update or checking for an update.
