Re: Link code

Hi,

Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.

When activating your Roku device, you should follow the Quick Start Guide and complete the on-screen instructions to connect your Roku device to the internet. Once this is complete the Roku device will display a link code on screen to link your device to your Roku account.

For more information regarding linking your Roku device, please see our support page How do I activate or link my Roku® streaming device?

Please keep us posted if you need further assistance or clarification.

Thanks,
Danny

Re: Link code

If the previous owner didn't do a factory reset, you should do so. I believe that will also provide what you're looking for. Go into the Settings menu and look under System/Advanced System Settings for Factory Reset. This removes all installed channels, any user information, and gives you the same startup process that a brand new device would have.

Re: Link code

Hi,

Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.

As @atc98092 mentioned, in order to get a new link code you need to perform a factory reset on your RokuTV. For more information on how to do this, you can visit out support page How do I factory reset my Roku® streaming device?

Please keep us posted.

Thanks,
Danny
