Roku Express 4K+ Powers up to the bouncing letters screen

I also have a 4k device. It has been working great, but now black screen even after holding reset button several times for at least 30seconds. Moved device to another tv, with a Roku express. So different hdmi, tv and power source. Same black screen.

ME: As stated earlier, I used a completely different cord and power adapter from a WORKING Roku express.

ME: I have 6 different Roku devices and love them, but I am concerned that THIS brand new one JUST QUIT. Looking for a solution.

Re: Roku Express 4K+ Powers up to the bouncing letters screen

Hi @Stream85,

Thanks for updating us here in the Roku Community!

We understand you are having problems with your Roku Express 4K+. How are you powering your device? Have you tried changing your input from HDMI 1 or 2? Please plug the cable to the adapter directly into the wall outlet and not at the back of the TV. After doing so, try switching the input to HDMI 1 or 2 using your TV remote. Try switching the HDMI cable to a different HDMI port too. You can also check out this link here to learn more about setting up Roku Express 4K+.

Let us know if it works.

Best regards,

Eunice

Noticed upon applying good wall power to Roku, the led on front left illuminates solid blue and stays solid. On a good Roku, that same led flashes for several seconds until it boots and functions normally, I’d say this 2 month old Roku is defective. I look forward to having it replaced by Roku
