I did a reset and made sure I didn’t set the resolution higher then the tv’s capability. That fixed my low power issue.

Obviously this issue has been going on for 8 months! I would call it a design fail for the Express units since they have no vents to let the heat escape. This is the part that makes me laugh (from https://support.roku.com/article/226794787😞  "If the problem persists, then you should stop using your Roku player."

That's the final solution?

Bingo! 
It’s called “planned obsolescence” and roku will let thousands of us , if not hundreds of thousands of us go round and round here instead of being honest and telling us we have a pet Brick named Roku. A Sick way to do business. Time to replace ha ha they win.

I am a very dissatisfied customer.

The lack of access to online support without an explanation beyond "not eligible" is just an awful way to treat customers.

Reading the stream of complaints, it's clear this is a ROKU issue, perhaps just corporate greed for profit?

Fix this issue.

Thank you, I await your helpful reply.  DO NOT refer me to any troubleshooting guide - I have tried everything (like the uncountable number of other unhappy customers of yours).

Be careful before dismissing my directive to you to fix this issue.  Consumers have considerable power against companies like Roku who seemingly and simply dismiss concerns. 

This is simply ridiculous.

I've been having this problem for months, sometimes just unplugging and plugging the Roku power cable back in resets it and it works for a bit, but ultimately the same error happens. This is pretty good evidence of a company with a terrible product that's going down in flames. No wonder the company's stock has tanked big time over the last year.
