roku stick 3810x quit working after sitting in a box for a month

stick 3810x SN 2150c6680627 Was working, went into a box for a month and now doesn't come on. No light (plugged into wall, plugged into tv) Tv knows something is plugged in but no roku. Remote still turns TV on and off and green pairing light blinks. Did this thing die in a box?

Re: roku stick 3810x quit working after sitting in a box for a month

Since you have no power either via power adapter or tv USB port, it's probably not a problem with the power adapter but that's one of the easiest things to check.  Most of us have old USB power adapters around from other devices.  Just be sure the fine print on it says it has at least a 1 amp output  

That leaves the Roku itself or the power cord. 

For the 3810 Streaming Stick+, that power cord is a special one that contains the 3810's Advanced Wireless Receiver (i.e. the wifi radio), and the USB power cord extension if you are using it. 

The extension is a fairly cheap component you can find locally to replace for troubleshooting.  The AWS cord costs about $20 and that's a pretty expensive purchase just to find out that is not the problem.

If replacing the power adapter and the power cord extension don't get things working then I wouldn't go any further and I'd just replace the whole thing.
