Extremely Dark ROKU Picture - all ROKU channels

All of sudden my ROKU is putting out an extremely dark picture:  Everything on ROKU is un-watchanle ?  Regular TV setting and picture is fine:  Do these units have adjustment?  Does the ROKU unit wear out after a year or two ?  Any way known to fic this ?

Re: Extremely Dark ROKU Picture - all ROKU channels

The first thing to try is unplugging the power and HDMI cables from the Roku and TV for a few seconds and then plug them back in,  If it's still dark, try a different HDMI input on your TV.  If that fails, try going through the TV's display settings.  If you have another TV, try the Roku on that.
