must reset roku every time I want to wach

Jump to solution
Constant Reset in order to watch

I have to reset every time I want to watch. Enter IDs, passwords, email using loud slow voice, running back & forth from device to computer, pairing, the whole rigamarole Aand most of the time even that doesn’t work. I’ve managed to watch 2 movies in the last month; wouldn’t even dare try a series. Roku express 4K+ plugged directly into wall, light is blue with a little red edge. Sharp Aquos TV. At my wit's end. I’m 81 and pretty smart but don’t have time to become an expert on all these articles. If I have to hire someone, what is the name of the profession I’m looking for?

I would do a factory reset and if that does work return the product.  That is not normal behavior.

Hi @Kcs1,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

I'd be happy to take a closer look to see how we can help.

A few questions here to better understand what you're experiencing: 
1. What Roku model device are you using? Can you please provide the serial number/device ID of your Roku device?
2. Does the issue only occur on a specific channel or all channels on your Roku device?
3. Are you receiving error messages or codes that cause you to do a reset the Roku device?
4. What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far to try to resolve the issue?
5. What are you seeing on screen? Can you provide a screenshot of the issue you are experiencing?

We look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with your needs. Thank you!
 

Best regards,
Mary

Each and every time, I access the HDMI port to use my Roku Streaming Stick 4+ (Purchased the week of July 4, 2022) I have to go through the complete setup of the device over again.  And of course all of my personal settings and preferences are then lost.

The Roku model device I have is: Model 3821X - Streaming Stick 4+
The Serial number/device ID of my Roku device is: X017002Y29J9


I see a massage that my device needs to be set up, I am sorry I cannot provide you provide a screenshot of the issue I am experiencing?

@MPWhite, if you're using the TV's USB port for power and not the supplied power adapter, use the supplied power adapter.  If that doesn't help, it's time to return it.
