Re: Roku Player Will Not Work Roku Box but turns TV On.
It only works after a reset is because the remote is no longer paired to a roku, so it switches to IR, once its paired its wifi again. Why it doesn't pair I have no idea unless user error in the method of pairing. Or it can be faulty wifi circuitry in either the remote or the roku itself? When it communicating via IR you can pair it through the menu:
settings> remote> pair new device> remote > continue> prompts
Or unplug the roku for a bit, then plug it back in right after its stops bouncing start pressing and holding the pairing key for 5 seconds and release, its alright if the light goes out don't touch a thing let it communicate with roku until you get a big DONE on screen.
