Have to cycle power to start Roku 4

I have a Roku 4 and it works just fine.  However, it will not power on with the Home button on the remote and I have to cycle the power (unplug it and plug it back in) to get it to start.  The batteries in the remote are fine and after i cycle the power it is fully functional.  Any suggestions?

Hey @yeowvan

Thanks for reaching out.

You can try using a different power adaptor to your Roku 4 to see if that will resolve the issue you're experiencing.

Moreover, please be aware that Roku 4 (4400X) is an older Roku device that is no longer under warranty. If you need a replacement power adaptor, you can purchase it on our Product page here:

All the best,

Re: Have to cycle power to start Roku 4

I purchased a Roku Ultra LT on October 10, 2021.  In order to get my Roku to function I almost always have to unplug and plug it back in.  It is a new device with a SKU# 4662RW.  Can anything be done to get this otherwise fantastic device to function properly.
