Jump to solution

Hi Community users,

We have received reports that some users with Roku TV are experiencing difficulty connecting to their home network following a recent OS update.

Update (July 18th): We've identified the problem and expect a fix in a future update.

In the meantime, we recommend performing a factory reset.

Update: 7/16 - Under investigation

You can attempt the following steps using your remote control to trigger an automatic restart of your Roku device:

  • Press the Home button (five times),
  • Then press the Up button,
  • Followed by pressing Rewind (twice),
  • And Fast Forward (twice).

Resolution: Perform a manual factory reset

Previous update: 7/11 This issue is currently being investigated.

To assist us in resolving this, please provide the following information:

  • Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and OS version (accessible via Settings > System > About).
  • Tracker ID (to obtain this, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times when the issue occurs).
  • What troubleshooting steps have you taken so far to resolve the issue?
  • Who is your ISP (internet service provider) and what is the make and model of your router?

Thank you once again for your understanding and cooperation.

Best regards,

Hi Roku Community,

We understand some users are having trouble connecting their Roku TV to Wi-Fi. We appreciate your patience while we address this issue.

Update (July 18th): We've identified the problem and expect a fix in a future update.

In the meantime, here are some troubleshooting steps you can try:

  1. Press the Home button on your remote five times.
  2. Then, press the Up button once.
  3. Follow this by pressing the Rewind button twice.
  4. Finally, press the Fast Forward button twice.

If the issue persists, try a factory reset:

  1. Locate the reset button on your Roku device. It's usually on the back or bottom.
  2. Make sure your Roku TV is powered on.
  3. Press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds.
  4. You'll see an indicator light blinking rapidly, indicating the reset process has begun.
  5. Release the button once the light starts blinking.
  6. The Roku TV will restart and be set to factory defaults.

For full information on this, you can take a look at this link: How to system restart or factory reset your Roku streaming device | Official Roku Support

Thank you once again for your understanding and cooperation.


Best regards,

Hi @AKirk,

Thanks for posting, and welcome to the Roku Community.

We acknowledge your concern and flagging this to us. Is there an ethernet port to your Roku TV, and see if you can connect an ethernet cable to get a network? Also, have you tried the soft restart to your Roku TVs and streaming device by navigating to Settings > System > Power > (skip if no sub-menu) System Restart? Further, have you tried connecting to an alternative network, such as a mobile hotspot, to see if you're able to maintain a connection?

Let us know.

All the best,
Kash

I can't view the video, but is the MAC address that's displayed under Settings->System->About all zeros by any chance?

My Onn TV is doing the same thing. Constantly kicks me offline but other TV's and devices are fine. Tried everything listed, still not fixed.

That did not work.

I second this. Something is wrong with the TV itself. It won't even let me use the remote and I am always signing out/back in after resetting my router, TV, fixing the settings, logging off/on to my account. If there is not another way we need to know how we can get these replaced. Thank you.
