This is happening to me too. If I leave the batteries in they last another week so. I have to change them just to get the message to go away. Running through an obnoxious amount of batteries for no reason. I don’t need roku to tell me when my batteries are dead, I can figure that out on my own....
Why do you keep asking people to DM you when we are all experiencing the same issue?
1) I have now had the low battery symbol for a month. That's right. I've yet to change the batteries and they work fine. But for a month I've had the low battery symbol flash every single time I press any button, AND the low battery sign comes on every few minutes while I watch a show (which is an irritatingly unnecessary feature).
2) You need to instruct us on how to disable that irritating symbol that starts flashing way too often and way too prematurely. Or, if the geniuses at Roku failed to include the ability to disable this pointless feature, then you need to offer to replace the unit with a newer model that does permit such disabling, or better yet, doesn't have a low battery notice at all.
So... again. Why do you keep telling us to DM you? If it's so you can replace our unit, great. I have a Roku 3 and I would appreciate a replacement model that either doesn't have the low battery notice or has one that can be disabled.
We appreciate your post and thanks for letting us know about the battery drain issue that you are experiencing.
Please be aware that the Roku 3 is an older Roku device that is no longer under warranty. It's possible that the remote may simply be on its way out. If you need a replacement remote for your Roku device, you can purchase a compatible remote on our Products page here: https://www.roku.com/products/accessories/player
There are other streaming boxes. I think I'd rather try out a new one instead of buying a replacement remote just to find it still has the same issue--which seems likely, given that so many others are having this same issue.
