Re: Resetting Itself

How are you powering it, through tv usb port or plugged into a wall outlet? The tv usb port will shut of power as though you unplugged it completely from the power. So when powered back up it has reboot each time. That wouldn't happen if plugged directly to the wall.

Re: Resetting Itself

@Lashybear Thanks for the note. When you say resetting, what exactly is occurring? Are you having to go through the initial setup process repeatedly, and link your device to your Roku account? 

Please send me a private message with your Roku account email address and the serial number of your device from Settings>System>About. I'll help take a closer look and see what other suggestions we can offer. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

I am having the same issue. I have a Roku streaming stick +. I set it up along with all my channels. Shut the tv off and the next day when it was turned on it prompted to go through the setup process again. It is plugged into the HDMI port on tv and a power strip. I have 2 other Rokus and they work fine.

Re: Resetting Itself

Same problem just occurred for me with my Roku 4K stick. I had added YouTube TV and several free channels with partially watched shows, and we used it for several months. Several days ago the Roku home screen came up with the factory default display. Do I have to reload YouTube TV again? What is going on? No problem on my family room TV.

Thanks for the information.

How are you powering the device? Is the device plugged into the TV USB port or is it plugged into the wall with the provided cables and adapter?

Please keep us posted and we can see what other troubleshooting steps we can provide.


Thanks,
Danny

Please be aware the Roku 2XS is a much older device.
