Roku suddenly won’t turn on or light up

So I have had my roku express for a few years now and it’s been working well until last week. I bought a streaming stick so I could give my family the express and now whenever I plug it into my project or smart tv, it won’t even power on. I have tried reseting and leaving it unplugged with no luck.

Re: Roku suddenly won’t turn on or light up

Hey @Nayd

We're here to help!

Could you tell us how your Roku Express is powered? Is it connected to the USB port of the TV or to a wall outlet? In some cases, the USB power provided by the TV is not sufficient to power the device. We suggest plugging your Roku into a working power outlet in the wall.

If still no dice, try using a different USB cable and/or power adapter. 

Please keep us posted on how it goes.

All the best,
