When I walked across the room to grab my RCA Roku TV remote, I had built up static electricity. When I shocked myself, and subsequently the remote, it messed up the remote. It doesn’t respond to buttons pushed and redirects the TV to RDIO. I have replaced batteries, unplugged the TV, and reset everything but to no avail. Has this happened to anyone else?
I have touch many of remotes in my life and that hasn't ever happened to where it harmed the remote, no. If you need a new remote you don't have to get an rca roku tv remote, roku tv remotes by tcl, Insignia, onn, magnavox, jvc, westinghouse, sanyo all work on each others models. Just don't get Sharp or Hisense.
I suggest getting the One-For-All urc-7935 Streamer remote, there are many on ebay for under $10:
Please send me a PM (private message) with your Roku account email address, and include the serial number/device ID on the Roku device along with a summary of the issue you are experiencing. I'll be able to assist you further from there.
Husband handed me the remote and static electricity shocked us both twice. The remote wouldn’t work afterwards. It came with our TCL 55 inch TV we purchased at Walmart. It has Netflix, Hulu, Roku and Disney+ buttons.
Roku only supplies the UI for Roku TV's, you need to get touch with TV manufacturer for a replacement remote. Or go to eBay Roku tv IR remote a real cheap there, look for the crescent moon key that makes it an iR Roku tv remote.
