Phantom button pressing will not stop

I came home from work this morning to try and watch TV and my TV is like a ghost is pressing remote buttons. I can't watch anything because it rewinds or pauses it. On the home screen constantly sounds like someone is pressing buttons. Have done system restart. Took the batteries out the remote. And it is still doing it.

Re: Phantom button pressing will not stop

I have done a factory reset as well. Nothing has worked.

Re: Phantom button pressing will not stop

That is because the condition is only fixed by buying a new remote

One built by a different company......😂

Re: Remote erratically skips or jumps over multiple content in some platforms

"...(ROKU) erratically skips or jumps over multiple content ..." is closer to my experience.  Not sure what is / was meant by "in some platforms," because I thought ROKU was the 'platform.'

ROKU EXPRESS Purchased 3/22. I experienced this sort of behavior in the extreme. I did change the batteries in my remote on the off chance that the remote was causing the issue. But, since the only way I can control the ROKU is with the remote . . . it's sort of a post hoc, ergo proctor hoc situation in that I did touch the remote prior to seeing this phenomenon.

I went to online support and had three different agents suggest I perform some task and then, close the chat before I could accomplish what was requested! finally, they sent me an email and, when I responded, told me to call.  Basically the guy on the phone ran me through a myriad of possibilities that had been addressed in the online chat (which, apparently, he had not read/did not have access to).  In the end he told me to buy a new ROKU as ROKU only stood behind its products of 365 days.  Amazon stands by for nearly two years, but quit the day before this problem manifested itself.

Model 3930X SNs009318nnx58 The screen will NOT stay 'stable.' it randomly selects this or that and the remote cannot control it. I changed batteries in the remote - That did not help. I turned it off, then on again - no change. I rebooted the router - no change. I did a RESET with the RESET button on the device and when the screen appears to enter the password, it is erratic and keeps changing from Uppercase to lowercase and back again. I have entered the password several three times and it does not accept it. The screen reader comes on for no apparent reason.  It reboots, asks for the language I prefer, finds the WiFi and router and asks for the password. I enter the password and it either reboots directly or shows a screen looking for the router, puts an 'x' in the box and reboots, or first tells me 014.40(?) error code and then reboots.

I can open (and did) the router using the same password entered into the ROKU screen.

But Roku guy says, only thing to do is try buying a new ROKU Express.

Why didn't they point me to this area - it appears that lots of folks are experiencing this erratic behavior.

The cheap Walmart TV's still going strong, but the ROKU can't last two years?

Model 3930X

SN: s009318nnx58

"...These can all be found in Settings > System > About..." Nope, not in my case. I reset it trying to fix it and can no longer access Settings.

"...using your Roku remote's microphone button..."Nope, never had a microphone in my remote - still don't.

The screen would NOT stay 'stable.' it randomly selects this or that and the remote cannot control it. I changed batteries in the remote - That did not help. I turned it off, then on again - no change. I rebooted our wifi router - no change. I did a RESET with the RESET button on the device and when the screen appears to enter the password, it is erratic and kept switching from UPPERCASE to lowercase. I have entered the password several times and it does not accept it.
