Hi, I have Roku Streaming Stick+using the original cable plugged into separate power sources (not the TV's USB port). Sometimes it works fine but more and more frequently it gives me the insufficient power warning. Bought it only a few months ago. I have tried multiple power sources and USB adapters. The cable Model number is WR001. Please help fixing it. Thank you.
I've also been getting the message, "USB port will not power this Roku" popping up continually for the last few days. It's starting to make it impossible to use my Roku. It was only once or twice a day at first. Today, it's been more than 5 or 6 times in one hour. We have a Roku Express. We've tried two different USB ports. It doesn't matter which one we use. The same thing happens, although we've never had an issue before this week. Our older Roku, which we gave to our mother-in-law, actually had a power cord that plugged into a separate outlet. This Roku does not. It is powered completely by the TV. Has a recent software update caused this?
We tried everything they recommended. Didnt work. They wanted us to send them the device serual number, but we couldnt access it because of the power issue. So no solution. We went and bought a firestick. So far we are happy with it. Way better free channels. And better range for the Wi-Fi signal.
I found this thread after the same issue developed for me this morning. Tried a different adapter and USB cord with no success. I have PMed the moderator as he requested. I agree with previous posters that this seems to be a firmware issue.
