Is there an update for this problem? Going through batteries every 5 days. I am tired of purchasing batteries at this point. It will be cheaper to purchase an Amazon Firestick versus keeping on purchasing batteries. #RokuSupport #pleasehelp
Thanks for reaching out regarding the Roku remote battery drain issue you are experiencing.
Can you please provide the serial number of your Roku device from Settings>System>About as well as any additional information?
I'll be able to pass it along to our Support team who can assist you further.
@RokuDanny-R My remote is going through batteries every few weeks. My serial number is below. Please let me know what I need to do to fix this issue. Thanks.
At this point, you should have collected enough serial numbers to know the range of them that are affected. So what is it? Let's see a list of the models and serial numbers that have the problem with batteries being drained too quickly, and an explanation of the cause(s).
I suspect the problem may be a mixture of hardware, software, and environment, and may therefore be hard to diagnose and reproduce.
It would help if Roku offered an IR alternative for streaming sticks (an "eye" and a mike on a cable which plugs into the stick), all the other Roku devices will work with IR remote (foregoing the private listening and voice search features).
Thanks for reaching out and providing me with your information.
I have passed along your information to our Support team. They will follow up and assist you.
In the meantime, did you know you can use your mobile phone or tablet to control your Roku player in place of your remote with the Roku mobile app?
