Insufficient Power Warning

Jump to solution

Watching LSU-CLEMSON. Roku says "insufficient power" all of a sudden. Says "USB port will not power this Roku." It did for 5 months. What happened ?

Thanks for the inquiry.

We would recommend plugging in your device in an alternate USB port, or into a wall outlet.

Thanks,

It's possible that something changed on the TV's USB port, and now it's not providing enough power. Have you tried using the power adapter that came with the Roku? Exactly what model Roku do you have? Model number, please, not its name.
