Today when I turned on the Roku Express, the "Let's Get Started" screen appeared. The remote would not respond in to any command except "arrow right". The Express then found my wifi network, I entered the password and clicked "connect". Wireless and internet connections were made and the "Update Available" screen appeared. I ran the update. When it was done, Roku logo came-on for 10-15 seconds and then I got dumped right back where I started -- at the "Let's Get Started" screen.
I've done this 6 or more times., rebooting the modem and the express a number of times as well as depressing the reset button 30+seconds.
No matter what I do I end up with "Let's Get Started".
2 days ago when I last used the express it worked fine. Nothing in my wifi network has changed. What's up?
Anyway, other users have had this happen on occasion, and one remedy was to use a different Internet source, such as a phone hotspot. No idea on earth why that works, but it has for a number of users.
Dan Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
We recommend rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device. Alternately, as @atc98092 mentioned, I'd also recommend trying to connect your device to an alternate network or mobile hotspot. If you are able to connect without issue, this usually indicates an issue with your network or password. In that case, you might also try changing your network password (avoid using any special characters from your wireless network password) to see if that resolves the connection issue.
