deactivating roku 3

Jump to solution

After buying a Roku Streambar for myself, I would like to give my Roku 3 to my son, do I need to deactivate it first before I send it to him and if I do how would I do that.

To wipe all setup and account information from the Roku 3, do a factory reset (Settings > System > Advanced system settings > Factory reset).  

If it's already disconnected from the tv such that you can't see its menus, while it's powered on, locate the unit's Reset button (it may be behind a pinhole that you'll need something like the end of a paperclip to reach).  Press and hold the reset for 10 or more seconds.  I don't know about the Roku 3 but the indicator light or status LED will blink rapidly on most Roku devices when the factory reset is complete.

OK thank you, I connected it up again and then did a factory reset so I think it is OK to send it to him now. He can then set it for his own use.. My stream bar is still working OK so at least I didn't wipe that off.
