Roku is locking and exiting.

Roku is locking and exiting. I have to rebooted, restarted, unplugged, reset, etc. We would be watching any Roku channel, it freezes, goes to initial "Roku" screen. If I wait before turning off all power, it may come back in a few minutes. But it will not be on the channel we were watching. We do not use wireless; we are directly connected via internet cable. Thanks for any help

Assuming this is a Roku streaming device, not a Roku TV with built-in Roku capability, how are you powering it?  If powered via the USB port on the TV, many TVs only provide .5 amp if current which is not enought to power the Roku reliably. 

Try powering it via the USB power adapter that came with the Roku, plugged into your house power.  If you can't locate that adapter you can use another you may have handy from a phone or other device -- just be sure the fine print on it says it outputs at least 1 amp.
