Streaming Stick 4K just started having noise in the audio

We have two 4K Streaming Sticks.  My wife has been complaining about her stick having a noise.  The noise reminds me of a scratch record.  It makes no difference what channel or app I am trying to use the audio has noise.  The device in question was bought on 3/11/2022 and has worked just fine until a few days ago.  I have the same Roku on another TV and it works fine.  So I do not think it is the Router.  I also changed the input it was connected to.  No matter what input it is connected to it is making noise.  I tried to go to Roku's Support page.  I get to the page that asks Which product can we help you with today?.  I click on the appropriate device and it just spins and says Loading.  It has been doing that for at least 30 minutes.  What do I need to do?  Do I need to replace his device?

Re: Streaming Stick 4K just started having noise in the audio

Before replacing the device I'd try:

  • Swap your Rokus between TVs.   Does the problem move with the Roku?
  • A different HDMI cable
  • A different USB power supply
