Roku ultra (2018 model) remote making very loud whining/high pitched noise

Purchased roku ultra (2018 model) from Bestbuy about 10 months ago. Just had to replace the batteries for the first time a few days ago. Put in a brand new pair of batteries and drained them in a few days. Whenever I put in new batteries I get a very loud whining/high pitched noise coming from the remote. Who do I contact for a replacement remote since I am still under the 1 year warranty?

Sorry for the late reply, I purchased more batteries and tried those and the sound seems to have disappeared for now. I will see if it comes back in the next couple of weeks and pm you.

I am having the same issue with my remote for a tv I purchased 6 months ago. Replaced the batteries and tried re-pairing it with my tv but no luck.

Hi, I also have the issue whereby my remote has started to make a high pitched whine. It stops when I take the batteries out so it is definitely the remote that is the issue. 

I was going to send a PM to Danny, but his profile does not have a PM link, and I can’t get to Mary”s profile for some reason. Please advise how to fix this problem with my remote. 

thanks,

iain

Hi Mary,

I have sent you a message with the serial number. 

I replaced the batteries with new batteries and the issue persisted. I checked the system software was up to date. I powered down the Roku, disconnected it from the TV and then reconnected and powered on. 

the remote was still making a high pitched noise. 

Regards,

Iain

Hi,

 

I sent the serial number to Mary, but she has not replied. 

The serial number of my 3810EU Roku Streaming Stick+ is YH006Y328374. 

Thank you Danny.
