HOME - ROKU Problems

Tell us about your ROKU problems.



I bought a ROKU player in April of 2009 and experienced some serious problems about a year later. My experience dealing with the ROKU player and the ROKU support staff irritated me so much I decided to build a website that would allow everyone out there with a similar experience to express their views.

Looks like I am not only loser who has a problem with this POS called ROKU. Having a problem with it's Wi Fi. When connect via ethernet. No problem there. Thinking about breaking it apart and take a look at it inside before throwing it out and getting ROKU 3 with 2, maybe four years warranty. This is made in China and has to have a good warranty.    respond to this post

For 2 nights we've been unable to access Netflix on our Roku player. The message says something about our wireless network, but every other wireless device is fine. Plus, as we are able to access other channels (HULU) on Roku, it seems a problem particular to Netflix. We shut off, reregistered, signed in again. All to no avail. Any ideas? Or anyone else experience this?

Was watching a series on Netflix via Roku tonight and on the 4th episode I suddenly got an error message saying it can't load the program and to try later. WTF?? Tried a movie and another series in Netflix and got the same message. Amazon and every other channel works fine. So is it Netflix or Roku??    respond to this post   (3 responses - view)

Roku FREEZES and RESTARTS every time it checks for new updates. Is there a fix for this? It is NOT the channels, on my end, but the rokus checking for updates. Kept track and that is the ONLY time mine freezes up and restarts.    respond to this post

12/25/13 Goy a Roku 3 have a rca scenium dlp tv. one click sign on for Netflix is gone using this device. My dvd player with Netflix had a simple icon one click sign on this device requires you to sign on using remote ugh each time. Plus no sound form tv just video. Checked settings to no avail. plan return xmas present. Also after resetting Roku 3 device to factory settings you also need to go into roku website and deactivate your personal info IE credit card info that is required to activate the device even if you never plan to purchase anything media content though the device.. It ought to be stated on the box . The audio to the remote control was nice.    respond to this post

Have had a Roku XR for a year and half and never a problem. Although I think the response time to inputs has gotten significantly longer. Last straw was when I started getting a green screen and no response from Roku XR. The only solution was to unplug and re boot or sometimes disconnecting the HDMI cable and re connecting. Never happened for months using same TV and cable. Now all a sudden nothing seems to fix it. This appears to be a on again off again issue with Roku. My guess would be a firmware issue but then again could easily be a weakened hardware problem too. I was impressed with Roku at first, but I am far less impressed anymore. I doubt I will buy another receiver from them.    respond to this post

Netflix on my Roku XD has been poor quality for the last several months. I made two calls to Roku support and they deny it is their problem. They made several attempts to troubleshoot my player but it only made it worse. The other channels all work fine. I finally fixed the problem myself: $30 for a Chromecast.    respond to this post

Roku player worked fine all day then this evening began doing it's own thing. Seemed to be caught in a loop. Wouldn't respond to commands. Unplugged everything and changed batteries in the remote without any improvement. Have not found the answer to why this is happening on line either. We are hard wired so we know it's not interferance. Any ideas?    respond to this post
