Re: Black screen but I have audio

Hello @1326

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community!

Does the issue only occur on a specific channel or across other channels installed on your Roku? Are you using a Roku TV or a Roku device connected to a TV? Please reply here with your device model number which can be found in Settings > System > About. I'll be able to further assist you from there.

We look forward to your response.


All the best,
Kariza

Re: Black screen but I have audio

This had happened to us as well. You can’t see anything. It’s only Audio. You can’t see the Home Screen let alone get to settings. We shined a light on the screen and you can kind of see the Roku name. But like i said, screens black only sound.

Try manually configuring your display resolution:  Settings/Display type = 720p/1080p/4K/4K HDR/etc (do NOT use Auto).
