Roku Express went black

I set up my Roku express with my wifi and after I submitted it, it accepted it then went black and isn't doing anything. What do I do?

Re: Roku Express went black


Thanks for the inquiry.

We would recommend first trying to make sure all of your device and cable connections are proper. If your connections are all good, we would recommend trying to perform a factory reset on your device.

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

Please keep us posted and we will continue to assist you from there.
