I'm having the exact same problem with the Roku Express I just bought my mom. We have one ourselves we bought a few months ago and set up with no problem, but when her screen says an activation link has been sent to my email address, then I go to the email message and click the link, but nothing updates on her screen -- there is no activation code on her screen (nor was there one in the activation email).
None of the resources in the "Support" tab have been helpful, and I am stuck.
What does it show on your screen? Try a factory reset. Find the pinhole on the back of the Roku 3 and with it powered up use a paperclip or something similar to press and hold the reset button for no less than 30 seconds while ignoring anything happening onscreen.
For me (with a Roku Express), what shows on the screen is the "An activation link has been sent to your email address" -- but it never updates to show an activation code.
Should I do a factory reset? If so, do I do it the same way that you described for the Roku 3?
Trying to set up a new Roku Premiere + and am not getting an activation code. When I get the activation email and click on it, it then asks for a code which I never get. Any suggestions?
It either shows an activation code on the screen or sends you an email with the code - one or the other. If it's telling you an email was sent no code will appear on your screen. Check your email.
I did the factory reset and it eventually came back to the first setup screen to select language. Now it does not respond to the remote. Very frustrating.
Thanks for the posts.
