Anyone else have terrible results from support

EDIT: Resolved by Roku, it took a lot to get noticed yet once they did take notice they escalated the solution.

Just purchased ANOTHER Roku device and it will be my last! I purchased an Ultra 4k and it has grey shadows around all the Names of Apps like Netflix etc. If I do a restart it goes away for a few minutes but is definitely getting worse. I reached out to Customer Service which I now discover is worse than Sprint ever was. They asked me a question, I responded and asked several questions myself and have NOT received a response. Started another ticket and NO RESPONSE. Started yet another and still NO RESPONSE. I have bought many devices for my home and even for friends as gifts and I am about to throw them all away! ROKU Customer Service SUCKS!!!!!!!

Anyone else have these issues and how do you call Customer Service? At one time I have and now no number for them.

Um... have you ever perused the Accounts, Billing, & Orders section?

There is no phone number for Roku support.  You can try to send a private message to @RokuDanny-R or @RokuMary-F , but don't expect miracles.  I've never seen anyone report the issue you're seeing and I wouldn't be surprised if it gets blamed on your TV or setup.  Starting additional tickets is probably making the situation worse.  Roku doesn't do anything quickly.

Re: Anyone else have terrible results from support

If you JUST purchased something, I would 1: google the problem, and if not found, then 2: post pictures and info on a forum, and if no-one still knows, then 3: return it for refund or exchange.  This is what return periods at stores are for - there are always a few strange defects or interoperability quirks that no one has seen before.  This kind of sounds like sharpening in the TV or some other picture "enhancement" but I'm just guessing.
