Re: Roku stick black and white

@ThomasP123-

First thing I'd try would be to restart the Roku.  

Depending on your Roku model and Roku version number you'll find the System restart option under Settings > System > Power or if not there, under Settings > System

For troubleshooting purposes:

Do you have a different HDMI port you can try it on?   A different TV?

Re: Roku stick black and white

There are a few steps you can try to fix a black and white image on your Roku device:

  1. Restart your Roku device: Unplug the power cord from your Roku device, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in. This can sometimes resolve issues with the device.

  2. Check your HDMI cables: Make sure all of your HDMI cables are securely connected to your Roku device and your TV. If the cables are loose or damaged, they may be causing the black and white image.

  3. Check your TV settings: Some TVs have a setting that allows you to adjust the colors or turn on black and white mode. Make sure this setting is not turned on.

  4. Check for updates: Your Roku device may have a software update available that could resolve the issue. To check for updates, go to the "System" menu and select "System update."

If these steps don't resolve the issue, you may want to try unplugging your Roku device and TV for a few minutes and then plugging them back in. If the problem persists, it's possible that there is a hardware issue with the device. In this case, you may need to contact Roku support for further assistance.
