Express 4K+ Died Completely


I tried numerous times all the maneuvers that people on youtube have posted, along with the roku instructions.

I don't understand why it is impossible for me to even send an email to Roku about this.

The thing only worked for a couple of months.

Maybe it just completely folded in the face of my 2019 Nvidia Shield Pro which was sitting in close proximity.

 I liked the Express 4K+ but how can I buy another Roku product?  The Target store return policy was only for 30 days.

Good grief.

If it's less than a year old you can go through the warranty return process:

Hi @jappyjippanui,

With more information, we will be able to assist you further.

Did you try using another power adapter?  Try using a cell phone charging adapter (5volt 1amp).
