The home screen of the Roku TV is displaying as blank.

Jump to solution

I tried to turn on my Tv for the pass three days and it is just blank. I’ve tried turning it on and off multiple times. And that doesn’t work. I can hear sounds and the Tv is clearly on since I can see the Roku TV symbol in the top right corner, but it simply won’t do anything else, and I don’t know what to do.

Hi Community users,

Thank you for reporting this issue and providing details. Our Roku team is investigating.

In the meantime, you can try a factory reset:

  1. Using your Roku remote, go to Settings > System > Advanced system settings.
  2. Select Factory reset (or Factory reset everything on Roku TVs) and follow the on-screen instructions. Note: This will erase all your data and settings.
  3. For devices with a physical reset button (located on the back/bottom), press and hold it for 10 seconds. The light will blink rapidly to confirm the reset.

For detailed instructions, visit the official Roku Support article: How to system restart or factory reset your Roku streaming device | Official Roku Support

If the issue persists, please help us by providing:

  • Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and OS version (found in Settings > System > About).
  • Tracker ID (press Home 5 times, then Back 5 times while experiencing the issue).
  • Troubleshooting steps you've already tried.
  • Photo of the screen (if possible).

Note: We'll mark this post as solved for visibility and as a reference for other users.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we work on a fix.


Best regards,
Roku Community Team

Re: Over Half my apps are gone from home screen

Jump to solution

Me too, although I am just a residential customer.  At least 2/3 of my apps disappeared on ALL of my TV's.  PLUS, my account information in ROKU disappeared!!!!!  That includes my payment method.  WTF, ROKU!  Did I get malwared?  Hacked?  How scared should I be?  And trying to resolve this with a REAL person is almost impossible.  I got blocked by their automated system every time.

Now that I have a ROKU system on all my TV's, I feel like I am held HOSTAGE by their system, especially when it fails.  Any advice... except to kick ROKU to the curb?

Have you unplugged the power for a few minutes?  Simply turning it off and on doesn't really do anything.

Hi, @Hero27

Thanks for posting, and welcome to the Roku Community.

We appreciate you sharing your experience with your Westinghouse Roku TV, and we understand that the screen is still blank after unplugging your Roku TV. For this issue, we recommend performing troubleshooting steps so that this will be addressed.

If you tried all other reset methods and your TV has not returned to normal operation, use the steps below to perform a complete reset.

  1. Locate the pinhole Reset button on the back of your TV, near the antenna, HDMI, and audio connections.
  2. Using a straightened paperclip (or similar), press and hold the reset button for at least 30 seconds.

Note: Performing this step will erase all of the data on your Roku TV, and you will need to reactivate the TV once more, including re-authenticating some apps that require your credentials.

We hope this information helps you to resolve the issue, and let us know how this goes.

Best wishes,
Kash

Blank screen but sound on?

Jump to solution

I have a 32’’ Magnavox Roku TV I’m not sure how old it is because it was my grandmother’s but today when I woke up the picture was not working but the sound was. I’ve unplugged everything, did a reboot and even a hard reset but I cannot get the picture to show up.

I don’t know anything about the warranty or even how old the thing is because as I’ve said it was my grandmother’s and she’s no longer here.

Any suggestions on how to fix or should I just get a new TV?

Home Screen Lost Everything

Jump to solution

Anybody else have an issue with all ROKU devices forgetting your Home Screen lineup while still being signed in? 

I restarted all my ROKU devices (three different models) and still I am missing all my Home Screen content (channels). Not looking forward to having to reconfigure and re-sign into everything I lost.

I have been using ROKU for over a decade and never had this happened. 

Is anybody else having this issue?

Thanks.
