Re: Roku ultra making loud noise when turned on have to unplug to stop it.

Jump to solution

Has anyone had success. I have bought over 6 rokus for my home. They have always been great until this one, one of the most expensive ones. I purchased thinking it was defective and exchanged it, but same issue with the next one. I have changed HDMI cords and ports to no success. What is happening? I can't return it no more. With this one it doesn't happen Everytime but like every 3-4 days. Still annoying.

I’m having the same problem. The serial number is YY00FU680194. I have 7 ROKU’s and none of them have had any issues with the exception of this one. Please help. 

Thank you.

Same issue.  We recieved ours as a Christmas gift.  This was our first roku.  Looks like we are going to go back to using our playstation. =/

I had the same problem start a few weeks ago. After finding no solutions online that worked (including changing the sound to Digital Dolby), I used the Live Chat in Roku Support (support.roku.com). After just a few minutes, the agent said they'd send me a new Ultra. I recommend simply doing this.
