My Roku Premiere has been overheating repeatedly and has become unusable. I tried all of the suggested solutions without success. It was purchased in Feb 2021. I am convinced that this problem is a result of a flaw in the device and is not the result of any circumstances peculiar to my use. It has always used in a well ventilated location and was always connected to the USB provided by Roku. I have tried using the tv USB and another plug-in USB and the device still quickly overheats.
Please reply here with the serial number of the affected Roku device. It can be found at the back or underneath the player itself. Once we have the information needed, we'll be able to forward it to our support team for further assistance.
My Premiere has just started displaying the overheating warning that so many others have reported. It's been running fine for months, and I have not changed it's location (out in the open with unrestricted airflow). This is obviously a design defect.
I've tried letting the Premiere cool down, and it works for a while then the Overheating on-screen message re-appears. As I mentioned in the original post, it's located in a place with good air flow, and the location hasn't been changed so my conclusion is that it's not an environment issue, rather that the Premiere is failing.
