My Roku 2050x model will not launch my home screen. I get a please wait screen then it will go to launching home screen then the screen will blink and go back to the please wait screen. Sometimes I get a no signal screen too. I have tried hard and soft reset. Any answers as to how to solve my problem?
That first generation Roku was discontinued in July 2011. Roku actually ended support on all first generation devices a few years back.
Now, this is a user-supported forum, so you may find a user here that has more experience with that device.
I will suggest that a full factory reset must be done by holding the reset button down for no less than 30 seconds. It doesn't matter what you see on the screen, no less than 30 seconds or it doesn't count.
