I received a low power warning but my Roku unit is already plugged in to a wall unit in my home.

Why would this happen?

Problem: I can access Netlix but cannot open any episodes that are listed for a Netflix movie.

Hi @georgesmith

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community!

Could you try using a different power cord and adapter? Let's see if that will make a difference. Please also reply here with the serial number of the affected Roku device. It can be found at the back or underneath the player itself.

We'll keep an eye out for your reply.


All the best,
Kariza

What a joke.  “Be sure and send us….and we will pass it along”.  Add me to the list except mine are only 3 months old.  This problem has been going on for more than 3 years!    Wish I had found this earlier.  Roku is very good at one thing, keeping the bad news quiet..gotta give them that

I am using ROKU Express 3900X since April 2019. I always use quality 5V/2A adapters. 

Serial No: YG00H5029726 and Device id: C3392H029726

Until 5-6 mooths ago I had no "Low Power" or "Insufficient Power" problem. Those problems occured once in few weeks. To solve the problem I had to disconnect power adapter from mains, wait 10-15 seconds and plug it again. The problem never occured while watching but when I wanter so start watching few hours later (while the device was usually in sleep mode.). However starting a week ago (after the latest software update) device started losing Wi-Fi connection displaying something like "No Internet, set up the connection". When I try to set the Wi-Fi connection again, this time "Low Power" screen appears, sometimes while watching Youtube, even sometimes during home screen. I have not observed this problem while watching Netflix yet. 

It seems that this problem (that keeps increasing in time), may not be related to overloading of the device.  I personally suspect the software updates, especially the latest one released on Sep 8, 2022. I would be thankfull if Roku  engineers spare some time to examine the software updates issued  in the last 8-10 months.

Dear RokuKariza-D

Interestingly, no "Low Power error" happened since last night (about 24 hours passed) in contrast to 4-5 errors observed yesterday. 

For the time being, I am sending the Issue Tracker page as of 21:55 Ankara/Turkey time (UTC:18.50).

I will send you the tracker page when the "Low Power error" happens again. 

Current stuation: Operating perfectly

   Software version: 11.0.0 - build 4193-51

   Timestamp: 2022-08-17T18:50:23Z

   Issue ID: 26-374-090

   Model 3900X

   Serial number: YG00H5029726  (C3392H029726)

I am also adding the "Software update" page:

   Last checked: Sept 17 10:12 pm

   Last updated: Sept 8  12:21 pm

Hope these help.

Best Regards

Moliva
