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.

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

I have a Roku LT that has begun making a small beeping sound.. one beep every 20 seconds or so. The device is working fine except for this annoying beep. I had heard that it signals you if the remote batteries are low, so I changed those with no effect on the beep.

Anyone have any ideas?    respond to this post

We've had the Roku for only a few months and the sound is once again gone while trying to watch Netflix. Has anyone found a solution to this apparent ongoing problem? ...ugh!    respond to this post

I just got the "unauthorized content" message this evening. I did the device reboot and changed the HDMI ports between the TV and ROKU device to no avail.
As a last option, I tried to perform a factory reset. Now the device won't pass the select language screen.    respond to this post   (1 response - view)
