Hi @Lolzjaz

Thanks for the post.

Please reply here with the serial number of your Roku device. It can be found at the back or underneath the player itself. Once we have the information needed, we'll be able to forward it to our support team for further assistance.

Roku express 4k isn’t booting

My roku express 4k stick is stuck on the loading screen with the bouncing logo. I have tried unplugging it for a while plugging it back in. I have tried holding the reset button and all it does is make the screen go black. I’ve tried plugging it into different outlets as well. It’s started about 4 hours and all my other devices are working.

Yikes. Pressing the Reset button, even for less than the recommended 30 seconds, could put it in a factory fresh state. That means a full setup

Describe what is on the screen when you power up the Roku. Bouncing logo? "Let's get started?" What?

I have tried that as well and it did not work. When it starts up it shows the loading page which is the bouncing roku letters and it stays like that.

Just to clarify ... 

When you power up the Roku, you get the bouncing logo, and it just stays on the bouncing logo?

If so, do press the Reset button for a full 30 seconds (a full 30 seconds; ignore anything on the screen for the full 30 seconds) and try it again.

I have done that as well and it just makes the screen black and doesn’t do anything.

Well, after 30 seconds, you do let the button go, right? What happens then? It stays black? So you never get the bouncing logo after doing a Factory Reset? Only after powering down the Roku?

I'm not trying to be a pain, but this level of detail is important. I don't want to assume anything, as that could take us down the wrong path. I want to make sure we're all on the same page and not veering of without realizing it.

Yes once I reset it with the button it stays black. If I unplug it and put it back in it shoes the logo again

Yikes. That really doesn't sound good. So now we're grasping for straws to find anything that says the Roku isn't totally shot. So...

At the risk of being a pain again, tell me how long you held the Reset button in seconds. Actually count and tell us. Or better, look at a watch and count the seconds, and tell us.

Sorry, but I had a nearly two page discussion one time and the person was doing what they thought was "good enough" or "the same thing" but not "the actual thing" and ever since then, I've tried to be very specific in my questions and answers. Not trying to be difficult, just thorough. I hope you'll bear with me on this.
