I just bought a new Express 4k+ and the remote it came with will not pair to the device. The green light blinks like it’s supposed to, but the pairing screen won’t go away so I can’t continue setting it up. I’ve tried all of the troubleshooting options I could find, but nothing has worked.
I'm having the same problem. I've spent 2+ hours on this. Read all the online articles. Read through the Community boards, etc., Nothing works. Very frustrating to say the least!!
Thanks for the post.
We would recommend checking the troubleshooting steps provided by our Support pages here:
Pair a voice remote
Fix your remote
If you are still unable to resolve the issue, please provide the serial number/device ID on your Roku device. I'll be able to assist you further from there.
If the express 4k+ remote isn't paired with Roku device it then emits IR signals for Roku commands. And so would control your express 4k+ if it had line of sight to the Roku itself. You can check to see if the remote is emitting IR by pressing a button while pointing at your cellphone camera, if you see flashes it's IR. No flashes means it has paired with Roku and it's still plugged into power. So do you have another Roku close by that it paired to on accident, or neighbor close by with one?
Thank you, but I tried all of the troubleshooting ideas that I could find before I posted, both from those articles and from the community board. Nothing has worked yet, the serial number is S07P216C4M88
