Whistling noise from remote

Jump to solution

I bought our Roku a month ago. The remote stopped working so I changed the batteries. Now, the remote makes a very loud whistling sound every few minutes. I changed the batteries again and paired the remote with the tv again, it is still making the noise.

Is this a model that includes a remote finder button on top?   None of my Rokus have this feature so I don't know what sort of noise the finder makes by default (although I've read it can be changed), or whether the noise it makes is continuous or intermittent.  If have one of these models, see if there us something depressing the button, or if the button is stuck in the depressed position.

More info on the remote finder: https://support.roku.com/article/211865427

My remote stopped working and now makes a squeaking noise. Have tried different batteries, and re-pairing the remote — I can’t even get a light to show on the back of the remote. Help?

Roku remote not working. Makes high pitched noise as well

Jump to solution

I’ve removed the batteries, I’ve tried to sync it, removed the power from the little roku box. Nothing is working at all. I can use my phone as a remote but it’s getting old! I paid $20 for this remote just a few months ago and it’s not working. It’s one of those voice remotes as well. My son had broke the one that originally came with it, that’s why we bought another one.
