Flickering screen - tried all suggestions

I’ve seen several posts about this. At different times, my screen starts flickering, then seizes up, or just flickers to a black screen for 10-20 seconds, and comes back for 5-10 seconds. Unplugging helps sometimes. But then it comes back. Moving to a different HDMI port or changing the cord does not help. I’m seeing this in other discussion groups but just giving these superficial recommendations. Really frustrated with Roku.

Okay, so this community isn’t all that helpful. Not really sure why we have badges. No help from the Roku staff. Maybe a different question - does anyone have an Amazon Firestick? Wondering if they have the same issues. Maybe I need to switch.

Re: Flickering screen - tried all suggestions

Ya I just got a premiere & I’m constantly having trouble with it flickering, handshake whatever too. My roku ultra never has any problems but this one seems to be junk. I’ve gone through all the fixes mentioned throughout this website but nothing changes. I noticed after factory reset it worked fine for awhile but once I turn the TV off & back on it’s back to its usual **bleep**. I think I’m just going to return this thing because it’s not worth the hassle. My amazon fire TV worked great for a couple years but now it drops the WiFi connection constantly which is why I got this thing in the first place. Unacceptable.

Re: Flickering screen - tried all suggestions

Tried everything. Flickering won’t stop except for right after factory reset. No issues with anything until TV is turned off & back on then it’s back to the usual **bleep**. 

I think I’m just going to return this thing. My ultra never has any problems on my other TV. Amazon Fire TV never had any display problems on this TV with the exact same set up. Again, tried every fix suggested. 

Anyone suggest a better product? Fire TV was great for a couple years then started dropping WiFi connection all the time. I don’t want any apple products (I’ve been using an XS max for almost a year & cant wait to go back to Samsung). Overpriced **bleep**.
