How to change setup language from French to back to English????

The Setup screen on Language flashed by so quick, it auto selected French, not English.  I  have yet to find a Setup Screen that will help me change the Language function back to English.  Of course, not being able to decipher French is an issue.  And it seems ROKU has not clear or easy means to contact tech support to help me.  Anyone with a bright idea in how to start over, because each time I try, the screens go immediately to French,

It being in French you couldn't have gotten far in setting it up, so do factory reset of the roku. If its a roku tv, you should find a reset pinhole in the input panel usually at the very top. What kind of roku is it? Name and model number?

There is a reset pin hole. I had completely overlooked that option. Will give it a try and see what happens.  Thanks.

I can't thank you enough. The streaming device (Premium) does have the pin-hole reset. Just didn't register. Can't tell you the last time I had to do a reset on a device.  First reset did not take.  Had to hold the reset long enough for the system the restart.  After that, got the system in English, and everything else from there on out was smooth sailing.

Thanks Again.

I tried the pin hole with no luck.  I'm at wits end with this thing.  Friend has one that came up in Spanish.  He also has had no luck with the pin hole attempt.  He returned it due to the amount of hassle.

You have to hold in the reset button for no less than 30 seconds while ignoring anything happening onscreen.

@Donrioux

Thanks for the post.

As suggested earlier in this thread, have you tried performing a factory reset on your Roku device to see if you are prompted with selecting the language you wish to use on your Roku device?

Fore more information about how to perform a factory reset, visit our Support page here: How do I factory reset my Roku® streaming device?

Please keep us posted.


Thanks,
Danny

To switch from French to English:

 

Scroll up to Parametres> Systeme> Langue> click English

It will sit on 0% for minute or so, then it will climb to 100%, and its done.
