Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Yesterday I had a power outage while my TCL Roku TV was playing videos in the Youtube app. Ever since then, I can't load Youtube. Nothing happens when I click on it. I have uninstalled it, restarted the TV and re-added the channel. Still nothing happens when I click on it. All other channels load fine with no problem,.
Try removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more.
I was watching Youtube on my Roku Express and came out of it for a bit and after a couple of hours I wanted to watch a video, I pressed the icon and it bleeped and stopped working. the app it just bleeps when I try to load it and the Youtube Icon does not even open it, it is just stays stuck any advise on how to fix it would be very appreciative.
After removing a channel, best practice is to clear the Roku's memory by restarting it before reinstalling the channel. Did you do this?
Restart via Settings > System > System restart (for Roku TVs: Settings > System > Power > System restart)

I'm having the exact same problem. I was just watching youtube videos last night so sometime between 10pm and 3pm (CST) youtube app stopped working. I've tried deleting the app, then restarting the Roku stick by unplugging the power to it, then adding the app again but it still does the same thing. It 'clicks', then sits there, no loading, no messages, nothing..not happy! ☹
