Roku Remote does not function properly.

I started having the same problem a few days ago. If I start up Paramount+, Hulu, or PBS and press the down arrow button, it scrolls anywhere from 2 to 5 items at a time - never just the next one. I've unplugged the Ruko for over a minute and plugged it back in, to no avail. I don't see how to open the remote to remove the batteries - it's rechargeable via a USB connection to the Roku.

Re: Roku Remote does not function properly.

No solutin found.  This jsut started happening. No new devices, lights, leds, etc. Always wthing late night.

Roku remote model: RC-FA1  Serial: 3226001105

Device id on Settings as you instruct says 674869ZZZF9-6E27-48DE-A2D4-E4125116CCD4.

I SHOULD SAY I DO NOT HAVE A SMART TV. iT IS AN OLD TV WITH ROKU DEVICE ATTACHED.

Settings Software Os/Version: OS Build 19045.3448

This scrolling multiple times, jumping several episodes in the list, happens only with the series called The New Detetives.  Everything else is ok.

I bought a new remote, and it doen't work at all. Won't turn on power.  I have new batteries in both the old and the new remotes.

Re: Roku Remote does not function properly.

Hi @mairzy-doats,

Warm welcome here in the Roku Community.

Thanks for posting about your concern regarding the remote trouble you've experienced. Have you tried performing a system restart to see if it resolves the skipping selection issue? If not, we recommend performing it by navigating to Settings > System > Power (skip if no sub-menu) > System Restart. After this, kindly check to see if you notice any difference.

Additionally, we'd like to know if what Roku remote you recently purchased. Is it a Roku simple remote, or a Roku voice remote?

Let us know.

All the best,
Kash
