Fix Frequent Low Battery Roku Remote Notifications

Hi Community users,

Are you constantly bombarded with low battery warnings on your Roku screen? This post can help!

Occasionally, the remote battery level appears in the top right corner of your screen. If you see this notification frequently, it might indicate low battery levels.

Check and confirm your Roku voice remote's battery:

  1. Press the Home button on your Roku voice remote.
  2. Navigate to Settings.
  3. Select Remotes & devices.
  4. Choose Remotes and then select your remote (You may have multiple remotes paired: Voice Remote, Voice Remote Pro, etc).
  5. Select About to view the battery level.

If the battery is below 15%, we recommend replacing or recharging it.

If you've confirmed the battery level is sufficient but continue to see low battery notifications, please follow these steps:

Restart your remote

  • If your rechargeable voice remote has a pairing button, press and hold the pairing button on the back of the remote for 20 seconds.

  • If your rechargeable voice remote doesn't have a pairing button, press and hold the Back and Home buttons on the Roku remote for 20 seconds.

  • Disable any extra remotes that are not in use in your TV settings.

To disable a remote:

  • For AAA/AA battery remotes: Remove the batteries.
  • For rechargeable remotes: Press and hold Back, Home, and Mute for 5 seconds to power it off.

Monitor if the frequent notifications persist after disabling extra remotes.

To re-enable a disabled remote:

  • For AAA/AA battery remotes: Reinstall the batteries.
  • Repair remote: For rechargeable remotes with a pairing button, hold it for 5 seconds. Otherwise, press and hold Back and Home for 5 seconds before re-pairing if necessary.

Please try these steps and let us know if they help resolve the issue you're experiencing.
