You'll probably have do factory reset, with it plugged in and powered up press and hold the reset button on the stick. You'll have pair the remote back to the roku during setup.

So when you see the bouncing roku, press and hold the pairing key in the battery compartment, once the roku stops bouncing, release for second and then press and hold it again until you get confirmation its paired.

We had the same problem except it was in German.

We stumbled through the set-up and after everything had loaded (we already had an account) using the remote we navigated to Settings on the screen. Right arrow to System, right arrow and then arrow down to (in English - Language) on our screen we saw "Sprache" - what we figured was language in German. In French it may be Langue. Hit O.K. and one of the choices of languages will be English. After you select it it will take some time to load the change. It took about 10 minutes for ours. Hope this helps.

This is beginning to really piss me off. I have two Roku Expresses in my house, and I've purchased around 10 of them over the years. I like to get new ones when the technology

If you can manage to get through set up go to Paramètres, scroll down to Système, scroll down to langue and you can change from there.
