Re: Roku starts initializing then screen goes black

I am having the same issue. Takes multiple tries of turning it off and on to get the Home Screen to come up. 
HDMI cable has been replaced as that was one suggestion.

Re: Roku starts initializing then screen goes black

Hi @Jmurphy,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

I'd be happy to look closely to see how we can help get you up and running.
Here are a few questions here to better understand what you're experiencing:

  1. Are you using a Roku TV or a Roku device?
  2. Does the issue only occur on a specific channel or all channels on your Roku device?
  3. Are you receiving error messages or codes when accessing the channel
  4. What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far to try to resolve the issue (aside from replacing the HDMI cable)
  5. What are you seeing on screen? Can you provide a screenshot of the issue you are experiencing?

With more information, we will be able to assist you further.

Best regards,
