I'm having the same issue. After trying all the recommended fixes, I bought a new usb cord from Roku. It's plugged into the wall. I've tried other usb adaptors, a power strip, etc. The screen is frozen so how do I find the serial # on my express?

If it's not written on it somewhere you should be able to get it from the list of linked devices shown at https://my.roku.com .

So if none of the suggestions for fixing this work and the replacement usb cord I bought from Roku didn't help, what am I supposed to do?

If it's still under warranty:

If not, I guess you've just got a dead device.  Try contacting one of the moderators to see if they can help.
