Streaming player light off

I have everything set up. I watched the video and called, but no support. I can’t get the roku streaming player to connect and start the activation. The light on the streaming player is also off. Should it be?

Re: Streaming player light off


Thanks for the inquiry.

What video did you watch and who did you call?

If the device does not show a power light on when plugged in, we would recommend checking out our Support page for troubleshooting here: What should I do if my Roku® streaming player will not power on?

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