Roku Express screen mirroring not working

I just got the roku, there is no fix online and no way to contact support on this. I tried to screen mirror the first time and it would work but no audio. I updated the roku and now when it mirrors it's  completely frozen on whatever screen the phone is on. Please help me and thank you

@Jgonzalez23

Thanks for the post.

Can you please clarify how you are trying to screen mirror? Are you using Airplay?

With more detailed information, we will be able to assist you further.


Thanks,

10.5 broke Airplay/HomeKit on all my TVs

Both my TCL Roku TV's updated to 10.5 build 4021, automatically last night. 

Airplay settings just flashes Airplay logo then crashes to Home Screen. HomeKit reports devices as "Not Responding".

Any ideas? I've done everything short of a factory reset.

@RokuDanny-R 

I know you are just doing your due diligence, but this is obviously a widespread issue affecting a range of Roku TVs:

https://www.reddit.com/r/HomeKit/comments/qw3ac7/tcl_roku_tv_update_broke_homekitairplay/

 

Both of my (different model) TCL Roku TVs have exact same issue and behavior following the automatic update. Let me know if you need the other as well.

Here's the 43":

TCL43S515, YS0008935889 FRU870935889 10.5.0 4201-30

89-464-499

No steps needed to reproduce "No Response" in HomeKit. Settings > Apple Airplay and HomeKit > Crashes to Home Screen

Thanks for the help!

[OS 10.5] Roku TCL 32" won't screen cast, 10.5 update

Ever since my Roku updated to the new 10.5 update, neither of my Roku TVs will screen mirror/cast! My TVs were perfectly fine, up until the 10.5 update, and now I can't screen cast nothing, unless I constantly do a "soft reset," as in unplug one of the TVs, and turn it back on, then screen cast/mirror whatever I'm trying to watch. Is anyone else having this issue? Will it mess up my TVs, if I keep unplugging it, just to get it to screen mirror? PLEASE FIX THIS! GO BACK TO UPDATE 10.0! Better yet, they should have waited until all the bugs were fixed, BEFORE updating any Roku devices, period! I've never had any major issues up until now, this saddens me. Please please please fix these bugs. Model: Series 3, 325321

Re: 10.5 broke Airplay/HomeKit on all my TVs

I'm having the same issue. I can't Mirror/Screen cast anything. I'm running to Roku 3 model TVs. It was working fine up until the 10.5 update. I'm having to unplug it, for 15 seconds every time I want to screen cast something. I'm sure that will mess it up... Please fix this issue!
