I have tried all the troubleshooting advice I have seen to include resetting the device, tried 2 new sets of batteries, and the remote is directly in front of the device. There isn’t a pairing button on this remote. Although similar post has been posted I failed to see an actual solution besides taking it back. Unfortunately I can’t locate receipt so I can’t take it back.
Is the remote working? It's an IR remote, so you could take your cellphone camera and look at the end of the remote when you press a button. If there's a light, it's sending an IR signal. If not, there's no IR signal.
And, you are ensuring there is nothing between the end of the remote and the front of the Roku, right? IR is line of sight.

Re: New Roku Express won’t go beyond language screen.
I purchased a new Roku Express from Roku online (SN: S008523M8MY0) and received it in the mail on 21 June 2022. This is my 4th Roku device and my second Express. I started the setup per the directions in the box.
Using the remote I started setup, and then successfully selected English as the language and proceeded to the next page. At that point, the remote stopped working. I changed the batteries, disconnected the device, and then started all over. The simple remote does not work. I have been through all of your remote trouble suggestions at the Roku website, but the remote is not sending a signal.
I completed the setup process using the simple remote from the other Express without further issues. This tells me the device is in view of the remote and the device is working properly. The remote on my phone app also works. The device is now listed in my Roku account.
When I look at the remote sensor through my phone camera while pressing a button, I see a flashing light on the working remote, but nothing on the new remote.
I find nothing on your website that tells me how to get to customer service on an issue like this. Could someone please direct me to a place that can help me make this remote work or replace it?
