Roku streaming Stick - 2 dead remotes in 2 days....hissing sounds

I have two Roku Streaming Sticks 2019/2020 that have both gone bad within 2 days.  Both remotes do not work, cannot be paired or switched out.  Both make a hissing capacitor sound when batteries are plugged in.  Roku's are fine and respond using the mobile app, but not remote works now.

This would seem to be a quality control issue if I have two remotes (identical in look) that both have the same issue.

Looking for Roku to respond on this issue and about replacements!

I am so tired of my roku remotes "breaking" after a year or so. I have been with roku for almost 10 years and the remote is always the piece failing on the numerous devices I have purchaed. It is so frustrating!! Just ordered another after it stopped working at just after a year.
