Sorry, no. The only solution to a bad remote is a new remote. 

You can put the roku remote on your smart phone, that is a bit fiddly or buy an IR remote (good, inexpensive but must be able to see your Roku),or spend a bit more and buy a non IR remote from Amazon.

That is just resetting your Roku. It does nothing to the remote..

Resetting does not stop the remote from draining batteries

Ive been having the same issue with my remotes using up batteries quickley since i bought 3 roku sticks 3 yrs ago.  3 yrs later they still havent solved the issue.  Not very environmentally conscious company!!

I just finally gave up with The customer service help . I went and purchased rechargeable batteries.  They last longer and cheaper in the long run

Hi Danny, we continue to have the same battery drain issue on only one of our many roku remotes.  We tried the factory reset with no luck.  Can you help?  Thanks

FYI. A couple of alternatives.

They don't fix the real problem which ROKU ought to be doing but may be a better use of time/money.
