Re: Roku Express with old firmware unable to update the software

I am unable to access the settings menu.  When I start the unit, it goes straight to the 'choose your network' page.

Per my previous comments I have tried different networks with different settings to no avail.

Tracker diagnostic reports the following code ID 61-105-217.

And during connection "Software update/Checking for new software"

ID 61-105-226

Troubles with Roku Model 3910X

I had to factory reset my Roku device. I'm able to connect to my wifi. But then it goes right after to software update and the spinning load circle for checking for new software has been spinning for the last 5 hours and has done nothing. What can I do to get this working?

Re: Troubles with Roku Model 3910X

First, if you're not using the supplied power adapter (I think that model came with a USB power adapter), try it.  Second, cycle the power and see where you're left when it restarts.  You may be right back at the "Choose a language" screen.  If so and if you can, try connecting to your phone's hotspot just to get through the initial update.

Ongoing 3900x Software Update Problems

Ongoing  3900x software update problems

Like so many other users currently, I'm experiencing the same problem with the 3900x streaming device unable update the software. The appears to be an on-going problem with many users.

Everything was working just fine with this device until I changed from an older ISP to my existing network.  After successfully connecting, This 3900 fails to to be able to update to the new software version.
 
I have two of the exact same model 3900x device. One works just fine and has updated to version 11.5 
 
Again this seems to be a common problem many users are currently experiencing.
So.... I know that your Roku tech support people are aware of this same issue
 
I have read every article on your support website regarding this same issue and I have tried every possible fix suggested.nothing has resolved this problem

 

After reading all the other posts I'm convinced that there is a software problem that was installed from a previous update on these devices during one of the previous updates, thus rendering it impossible to update to the latest version of the software.
 

I would like your support team to reach out to me so that we can work out a resolution to this problem.
