I just purchased a new Roku Ultra and am having trouble activating it. I contacted support via chat, but I'm not confident that the support person knows how to support the device..
So on the device I get to the screen with roku.com/link and the activation code. I follow the steps on my computer browser which ends with a response of "Setup complete! Check out below how to get the most out of your Roku!". The Roku device then goes through channel updates and when it finishes the device appears to reboot, and then comes back up to the screen with roku.com/link and a new activation code. I've tried multiple times (more than 5) and the same happens each time. The chat support person had me factory reset the device, but the same continues to happen. On one attempt it got stuck at the jumping/spinning Roku logo and on the most recent attempt the device appears to have shut down completely - the TV just says "no signal". The chat support person have ordered me a replacement device..
Has anyone had a problem like this and know how to resolve it? If not, I'll wait for the replacement...
Thanks in advance,
Sounds like a bad roku, looks like you'll have to wait for a replacement.
The x is the roku itself, the r is retail box, ultra, remote, and the rest of accessories.
I also just purchased a new 2019 Ultra. Mine activated OK but every time I switch over to it on my Yamaha RX-A3070 it will not show until I unplug the power cord and plug it back in. Then it operates OK. What's up with that???
@jrkbrg Thanks for the note.
We are rolling out an update for OS 9.2 (build 4806) that should help resolve that issue. Visit Settings>System>System update>Check now and perform a system update.
@RokuTannerDI cannot get here: Settings>System>System update>Check now
When I power on the Roku, it comes up to the activation screen (roku.com/link with the activation code). After following the activation steps, one of two things happens -
It reboots and comes back to the same activation screen
It gets stuck on the screen with the jumping/spinning Roku logo.
In any case, there is no option to go into settings.
And if this is a software issue on the device, then I presume the new one they sent and is arriving tomorrow will have the same issue?
