Roku stick cracklings sound

I got my Roku stick the end of December 2018 and it’s had a constant crackling sound for the past week, for anything I watch through the Roku. Is there someway to fix this?

Re: Roku stick cracklings sound


Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you're experiencing.

Have you tried using another HDMI port on that TV or using a different TV to see if the same issue occurs?

We also recommend plugging the device into a wall outlet using the included power adapter instead of powering through the USB power. This can help resolve issues in some cases.

Please keep us posted.
