Howdy. I've used and liked my Roku 3 for several years, but I'm no longer using it and I want to sell it. To do so, I need to do a factory reset. But I've already unplugged and boxed up the TV, and I really don't want to set it up again just to do a reset. Can I do a factory reset with *only* the remote control, or via the web?
I agree with Iona-D. Unlink the device from your Roku account on their web site, then do a hard system reset on the device itself. Removing the remote batteries was overkill but you can be sure all your personal information has been removed from the device by taking both steps.
Not quite the way you mean concerning the remote batteries removal. I removed the batteries because the remote would automatically try to reconnect with the stick device even after I wiped it. I wanted to keep the remote from pairing with it as it will be repaired with another television at it's new location, not anything to do with previous encoded information. My own television stays here!
