Just bought roku stick and its not!

Just bought a brand new roku streaming stick, plugged it in, started up, was typing in my wifi password and it froze and reset.

Now it just shows the bouncing roku logo. Tried unplugging it and holding down the reset button.

What else is there to do? Or am I out of luck with this.

Re: Just bought roku stick and its not!

How long did you hold the reset button? To completely reset to factory shipped condition, you have to hold it a minimum of 30 seconds, and not one second less. Don't pay attention to anything that happens on the screen while you're holding the button. You have to hold it for 30 seconds at the minimum.
