My Roku if refusing to update and is stuck in a loop of restarting

I have a Roku 3 and it will not update. I am updating it to os 10 and it downloads normally but when it try’s  to install it gets stuck in a loop of restarting. I hard reset it with the reset button on the back. I set it up and entered my Wi-Fi password and it restarted then it did a loop again. Now its requiring for me to update it. What do i do?

Re: My Roku if refusing to update and is stuck in a loop of restarting

When the setup fails to complete after the software update runs, here are a couple of things that some people have found to work for them. They may not be universally successful, but they are worth a try.

Easiest to try, so try this first: Restart your router, even if other devices have no trouble connecting. When your router has completed its startup, try repeating your Roku setup.

More involved: Repeat the setup by connecting to a different wifi network - perhaps via a wifi hotspot on your mobile phone or by taking it to a friend's house - and see if it will complete the startup. If successful, then redo the wifi connection to use your intended wifi network via Settings > Network > Set up connection.
