I just installed a new Premier streaming device. When I plug in the device it powers on, I get the ROKU banner, then the device powers off. I tried the USB port on my TV as well as a wall outlet. I’m using it on a Samsung Smart TV
when installing I plugged in the HDMI cable then the power cable. The device powered up and I got to the WiFi screen. Successfully connected to WiFi and the device downloaded a software update. Went through the TV connection setup and the problem started
We will be more than happy to assist you further with this issue that you're having with the Roku Premiere. Please make sure that all the cables are properly plugged in and firmly attached. If the problem still persists, please try to factory reset your Roku Premiere by locating at the back or bottom of your device the physical reset button or pinhole, then pressing and holding it for 10 seconds.
I did the factory reset 3 times this morning. But I had read somewhere press and hold the reset button for at least 30 seconds. During that time the device powered on then powered off again about 20 seconds later. I’ll read through the links you sent earlier tomorrow. I won’t be able to try anything until later in the day or even Friday morning.
After 2 attempts to factory reset (both failed). I press the reset button, the device turns on and I get the bouncing Roku screen. I’m assuming this is some sort of Home Screen. But I cannot do anything. None of the buttons on the remote do anything. The remote works because my home theater system detects it. So I started from scratch
Following the connection guide on the TV, I plugged the HDMI cable into HDMI port 1 (2 & 3 used by my other devices). Then I plugged the other end of the cable into the Roku device. Again the bouncing letters but nothing else.
I think it’s time to reduce my frustration and return this thing. The only time I was able to do anything with was the first time I connected it. I connected the WiFi and it downloaded a software upgrade. It hasn’t worked since. Albeit no error messages, I think the update failed to load properly.
Upon verifying the information on our end, this device is no longer manufactured. In addition, we would recommend returning it and a recent model of Roku streaming device would be advised that is supported by updated channels, features, and Roku OS.
Happy Thanksgiving. I am posting just to close this issue out. The issue turned out to be a bad HDMI port on the TV. I’m now using the device and learning how to do things. Thanks to the responses and assistance.
