Factory reset broke my roku express

I factory reset my roku express after doing all the things roku suggested I do to fix my roku app not working. I figured that if I factory reset it, it would fix my airplay problems as well. After I put in the pin to reset it, after 3 hours, it will not come on anymore.  The purple light flashes 3 times consecutively every few seconds. I’ve tried the reset button as well and that didn’t fix it either.

Do they take that long to reset or did something happen to my roku. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Factory reset broke my roku express

A factory reset doesn't take any more time than just unplugging it and plugging it back in.  If you press the reset button or unplug it and plug it back in nothing displays on your TV?  Are you using the supplied power adapter and not the TV's USB port?
