I have a Roku Ultra whose "enhanced voice" remote has stopped working.
It was purchased at a local BestBuy this past August (2020).
It had complained that the batteries (which were replaced two weeks ago) are almost dead. I replaced the batteries with two more new batteries (which I confirmed were good with a digital voltmeter) and the Roku continued to complain about low batteries. Now even new batteries do not register with the remote. The Roku Ultra itself seems fine as it is fully functional using the Roku app on my phone.
How do I get this "enhanced voice" remote replaced under warranty?
I am not looking to return or exchange the unit itself. I could ship the unit and the remote back and then have them send me a new unit with a new remote. Seems like a lot of unnecessary shipping to me. And I lose use of the unit which works fine now when I use the Roku app on my phone.
What is the easiest way for me to replace just the remote that died (within the one year warranty period)?
The links on the website seem to take me down a path towards returning the whole package.
As @renojim mentioned, please send me a PM with your Roku account email address, and include the serial number of the Roku device from Settings>System>About along with a summary of the issue you are experiencing. I'll be able to assist you further from there.
I have not as yet gotten this resolved. I expect that they will give me an address to mail the dead remote and they will mail me a new remote. Or better yet, they will just mail me the new remote as it seems pretty pointless to mail the dead remote back. It is not like they are going to fix it.
Going back to BestBuy is my last resort as this really isn't their problem, even if they are willing to make it right in the name of customer relations.
