Broken hdmi extender Roku stick?

I just got the free hdmi port extension for my Roku stick I bought at Walmart and it was making the screen all static and loud. I checked all the hdmi ports with the extender and it did the same thing. It’s plugged in now without the extender cable and it’s working fine. How do I get a new cable? My tv is making the streaming stick hot and I don’t want it to overheat after I just bought it.image.jpg

Re: Broken hdmi extender Roku stick?

There's nothing special about the Roku HDMU extension, it's just a short (4 inches or so) HDMI extension cord with an HDMI plug at one end and an HDMI socket at the other. You may be able to find an HDMI extension locally and not have to wait for someone to ship it to you.

I just bought it and the protection plan so I was hoping the free extender would work. The stick was so hot I almost burned my fingers taking it off my tv.
