Roku Express remote not working

My remote for my roku express has partially stopped working, the only buttons that work are the home and up arrow. It is not a battery issue as I have changed them 3 times and it is not a blocked signal issue as there is nothing between the device and remote. I used my camera to check the IR ans it only shows up when using the home key and the up arrow. 

I am currently unable to use my device as I just got new internet and cant set it up to use the app as the remote wont work

Re: Roku Express remote not working

Its faulty remote, you need to replace it but it doesn't have to be a roku remote, since the express uses a IR remote any cheap universal remote with roku listed will work just fine. And the benefit it will control your tv as well.

Thanks for the post.

Please send me a PM with your Roku account email address, and include the serial number on the Roku device along with a summary of the issue you are experiencing. I'll be able to assist you further from there.
