Re: Roku

@girdo331 

Thanks the note.

It's hard to determine if the issue that you are currently having is with your device or with your remote.

Have you tried connecting to your device through the Roku mobile app to see if you can control your device? If you can control the device with the mobile app, then the issue is with the remote.

For more information about the Roku mobile app and troubleshooting your remote, visit our Support pages here: 
How do I install the Roku® mobile app?
How do I resolve problems with my Roku® enhanced "point-anywhere" remote?

Please keep us posted and we will continue to assist you from there.


Thanks,
Danny

Re: Roku stuck on Home Screen

@Mjbeauc, what's the model number written on the device somewhere?

What do you mean by "frozen on the Roku Home Screen"?  The remote isn't working?  Have you restarted the Roku by disconnecting the power for a few seconds and plugging it back in?  Are you using the supplied power adapter and not the TV's USB port (if appropriate)?

Re: Roku stuck on Home Screen

Hi @Mjbeauc,

Thanks for posting in the Roku Community!

We'd like to gather more information about the issue you're running into. Does the issue only occur on a specific channel or all channels on your Roku device? How long has the issue been occurring? Have you tried rebooting both your wireless router and your Roku device?
With more detailed information, we will be able to assist you further.


Best regards,
Mary

Re: Roku stuck on Home Screen

Hi @Mjbeauc,

Thanks for following up.

We also recommend removing and reinserting the batteries of the remote then removing the power cable from your Roku device, waiting 5 seconds, and then reconnecting the cable if this helps resolve or isolate the issue from the Roku device to the Roku remote?

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing?


Best regards,
Mary
