I'll be as polite as I can because we've been through this Model # question several times. Model # 4200X Roku 3 - Build # 4174-04. Update # 10.5.0 as of this day (October 9, 2021)
Sincerely but Angrily,
Are you using a simple, standard Roku screensaver? The clock, for instance? Or are you using a purchased or otherwise obtained non-Roku screen saver? Screen Saver has been the Roku digital Clock for MANY years
Have you restarted your Roku? So many times, I've lost count.........
Are any apps other than YouTube having problems? All installed channels are working with the exception of YouTube and that went KAPUT after the latest update - 10.5.0
And the problem persists for a LARGE number of Roku users......We've all got the problem, but it appears as though there currently is no solution......
I've had my Roku 3 for years, and it's always worked flawlessly, but now an annoying problem has appeared.
I suddenly noticed that the white light on the front was not going off after I finished using it, as it has always done before.
I tried all the usual resets and reboots, but nothing made any difference.
It seems that the light should go off when the screensaver kicks in.
After a lot of experimenting, it is indeed working correctly when the unit is being viewed, after the preset time with no activity, the screensaver comes on and the light goes out.
Now here's the strange bit! This is all fine as long as I'm looking at the Roku 3 output on the TV, but as soon as I turn the TV off, or select another source, the light comes back on again! It also comes back on if I disconnect the HDMI connector. What's happening is that the screensaver is switching off when I do that, and it never comes back on again unless I select the Roku 3 input on the TV, at which point it all works again!
This has to be a software bug surely, it's never behaved like that before, and it's very annoying as I don't want the bright light under the TV on all the time. Yes I know I can put something over it, but that's hardly a proper solution!
PS Can anyone tell me how to change my avatar here? If I go to edit my profile and select the avatars tab, it seems to just go to the forum homepage.
I have Roku Ultra 4660X and same here. When will the fix come? I had expected a better response from Roku ad many are experiencing this. Guess if the device burns out they expect I will just order a new one? Glad this Roku is not in the bedroom cause that light would be terrible always on. Not happy with this situation.
Yup, that is the only fix, unplug when not in use. It seems IT either can't be bothered to care or they can't find that one line of code in the update that has triggered this issue. The latter is a large feat and I assume the reason we all still don't have a fix.
