Roku 3 turning itself on at random

Jump to solution

I’ve had my Roku 3 for at least 4 years and in the past few days it has started turning itself on. I first noticed after I had been out of town for a week and saw that the light was on. I turned on the tv to find that it was on the Roku home screen. I left it on long enough to see that the screensaver came on and the light on the Roku went off. The next day I noticed the light on again and it was the same as the day before. I had not touched the remote. I unplugged the device for a while and plugged it back in later. Kept happening. I took the batteries out of the remote. Kept happening. Today I did a factory reset and it’s still turning on by itself. It has never done this before. It is not turning on the tv or anything else. What’s going on and how do I stop it?

Did it recently update to software version 10.5?  Check from Settings->System->About.  If so, it's a known issue:

It looks like that might be what’s going on. When I searched I only found solutions for Roku turning the tv on but guess I used the wrong terms. Thanks.
