My roku remote for streaming stick abruptly stopped working sometime back.
I was navigating between channels and it froze.
After sometime I saw a firmware update on screen and after that I tried again but the remote still doesnt work.
I also replaced the remote with new batteries, restarted the stick and rebooted the system too.
Have you tried using the Roku app on an Android or iOS mobile device? If connected to the same local network as the Roku it should be able to find and control your Roku, as long as the Roku is still connecting to the net.
If you can provide your Streaming Stick model and model number we can recommend the correct replacement remote.
Thanks for the posts.
Can you please provide us with your device serial number from Settings > System > About and we will see what we can do to further assist you.
Model: 3600X-Roku Stick
The 3600 will work with the ~$20 Roku Voice Remote and ~$30 Roku Voice Remote Pro. Order from Roku here ( https://www.roku.com/products/accessories/streaming-stick#Remotes ) or you can find at Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, eBay, etc.
These remotes will also add the capability of controlling the power and volume of most tv brands.
Should you need to connect to a new network (or reconnect to your present one because the Roku has lost connection) you will not be able to use the phone app to do it. (The app can only connect to a Roku that's already on the same net.) It's a good idea to have a working remote available.
