No matter if the TV is on the home screen or a channel, the screensaver starts to engage but then goes right back to the screen it was already on. How can I make my screensaver work again? I've tried several different ones to make sure it wasn't just one.
That's bizarre. All screensavers do that? Have you restarted your Roku from Settings->System or Settings->System->Power lately?
That was going to be my suggestion too.
These things are just special purpose computers. Like their big brothers sometimes clearing things out by restarting them can correct problems.
Depending on your Roku model and Roku version number you'll find the System restart option under Settings > System > Power or if not there, under Settings > System
If a restart doesn't do it, or if you don't have sufficient control with the remote to navigate the Roku menus, you can also restart by pulling the power plug to the Roku for a few seconds then plugging it back in and wait for it to restart.
(Note that if yours is a Roku TV with "Fast start" enabled, turning it off and back on just puts it into and out of a standby state and does NOT give you a complete restart. Use the above methods instead.)
