Why ROKU Problems exists:
After many years of horrible performance from ROKU (or ROFU as we call them), we decided that it was time for the public to have a forum. There is a lot of negative commentary about ROKU problems on the Internet, but we felt it should all be consolidated on one website.
roku 3600x gets warm and shuts down
If I don’t restart my Roku device every time I turn on my tv, I receive a pink screen that says unauthorized content? If I restart it every time it works fine but don’t understand why I should have to.
Streaming stick 3800R locks up. If power button is pushed the remote needs to be paired again. Why have the power button if it causes pairing problems.
Will hang in YouTube and then after a minute or two it breaks out and is in the Roku main menu.
This also means having to login again over and over.
YouTube has always been a problem in Roku. Always excruciatingly slow response when trying to maneuver around. Most of the time it’s so slow that when I click an operation too many times, this eco effect of it trying to do everything I keyed in happens.
For the most part, as long as I don’t touch anything after starting a video, I should be fine.
One issue isn’t as forgiving. YouTube will crash Roku and Roku has to reboot. And this happenway way too often. I don’t understand why this isn’t a red flag to YouTube or Roku. But it’s not getting fixed. Because of this I would like to warn people that Roku is useless with YouTube.
You Tube no longer works. When I click on it I get a black screen.
Amazon prime crashing when starting Andromeda Episode 1. 1:20 it crashes back to the home screen.
Netflix had 3 crashes in the last week.
my youtube connect a device code wont connect
I cannot,all of a sudden, watch Netflix or on demand items from spectrum. Have unplugged, waited, as instructed and still get the message to try later or unplug. No problems until last night.
I have had the Roku for one month. I am getting a black box in the middle of the screen. The black box has lot of writing and strips of yellow.
my ROKU EXPRESS STICK was working a few days ago, but now it won’t connect to the network. when I try to connect to my network, I get “Wireless- connected” & “Network- not connected”. What do I need to do? My Laptop computer is connected OK so I know the WiFi is working.
The YouTube app on the 3600x stick crashes after two or three videos. The crash either goes to the home screen or a system reboot. The software is 8.00 build 4128-24 the hardware is sn 5s4621016884
While watching Sling or Netflix(YouTube also), it freezes, the screen goes black, the it goes to the Roku loading screen, and then the menu screen. When you call support, it’s some guy from another country I can barley understand, and the only thing they can tell you, are the obvious thing you’ve already tried a dozen times!
Keeps going back to home screen while watching a movie
Roku crashes on YouTube
too many commercials,
I actually haven’t experienced any issues until this latest update. Now the Netflix and YouTube apps kick me out immediately after opening.
turned off the Roku, now can’t get any picture or anything to come back on. Tried reset button, no luck
screen goes on and off
I have an XS. Everything was fine with YouTube, and suddenly I’m having problems with videos playing for a minute or so, then it resets and goes back to the home page. Occasionally it will play a video all the way through, but it’s happening more and more frequently.
You can’t get through to Roku to report problems or ask questions. You get some foreigner who asks you for your password!
