I can’t get my brand new roku express off the loading screen
I just bought a roku express and I set it up and I got to the language screen and then I was connecting to the internet. It told me I had an update and I couldn’t back out of it so I did it. And I did this same process twice and I wasn’t getting past that. So I unplugged it and reset it and now it’s stuck on the loading screen. I’ve tried to change the hdmi outlets and the usb outlet from the wall to the tv.
Re: I can’t get my brand new roku express off the loading screen
I am having this same issue! I just bought the express tonight and it goes through the steps and gets to the “update” that I have no choice but to choose ok with, it makes it to 100% and then it goes to the bouncing roku logo and then to a blank or purple screen. It does this over an over. A couple times it’s went back to the beginning and downloaded the update again and then the same problem. This has been going on for hours and it’s super annoying!!!!
We recommend rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device.
I'd also recommend trying to connect your device to an alternate network, such as a mobile hotspot, to see if you can finish updating your Roku device. Then once your device has been updated, try switching back to your home wireless network.
