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.

ROKU 2 - Last 2 updates is when it started. The pink screen of death! The first update caused the pink screen occasionally, second update it happens most of the time on Netflix, USB drive and EVERY channel I try to play. Now there is no roku usage at all and I am very angry. I live in the country, no sat TV or cable either, when the day is over and I get home to watch a few hours of TV, I can't!

Roku, please get your programming fixed and do an update to fix this problem. I tried to reset the unit to factory settings and disable updates because the unit used to work great. Now, it still stinks with no TV. I am going to buy an Apple TV and be done with Roku.

Perhaps, Roku has done this on purpose to force people into buying a Roku 3?    respond to this post

Roku 3 is driving me crazy ! Sometimes it changes channel by itself, sometimes it goes back by itself to the home screen...I put on a channel goes back to home screen after couple of seconds and it does it again and again and again until I'm fed up and I turn it off all together. It is as if it's possessed. I'm I the only one having this problem ?

Refer to my 2015-05-29 post. Since that post, I have discovered my problem with the Classic Model N1100 Roku device, and I suspect is the same problem lots of people who have posted on this site are having. I took my roku to my neighbors house, and it worked perfectly. Therefore, the problem was in MY HOUSE. I started to think of any new appliance, etc. I had recently installed, and thought of a device which I had bought to allow my TV optical audio cable to connect so I could hook up wireless headsets for the TV. I unplugged that deivce and, Viola---My old model roku started working again. Wireless stuff interferes with other wireless stuff, as does electrical devices, so---start thinking. Anything new installed about the time your Roku stopped working? I see lots of people are thinking there's something wrong with Netflix. This is not the case. I watch Netflix almost every night, and never had a problem with it. Not saying this is a cure for your problem, just an educated thought.

We are having the same problem with our Roku. We can't get it to connect to the different apps. What should we do?    respond to this post   (1 response - view)

None of the programs will load. For example, the red screen for Netflix will go up, the back for Hulu Plus - but then it goes into an error message after about 90 seconds. "Sorry. We have encountered a problem communication with our servers. Please try restarting the application. Sorry for the inconvenience." I have restarted and it's still not working. My internet and netflix on my computer is working fine.    respond to this post

My roku 3 has a bunch of vertical, colorful lines across the screen when I turn the roku on. Is my roku broken? Can I fix it? If so how? I just got it and I don't want a broken roku that cost kind of a lot of money. If you know anything about this please help me.    respond to this post

My Angry Birds Edition Roku 2 (3100AB) stopped working after midnight CDT on 5/31/15. It cycles between a black screen and the bouncing word: ROKU. It seems to be locked up. I tried unplugging my internet connection, severing my connection to Comcast, unplugging the Roku (and all plugs)...nothing works. Any ideas? Thanks    respond to this post

I have owned a classic model N1100 Roku for several years. It always worked until a couple of months ago. I have done all the suggested fixes supplied by Roku, plus have done the factory reset and reentered all my info. The unit will not connect to the internet. It recognizes my internet access name, but when I click on the access icon, I get a spinning symbol and a message "connecting to the internet". After about a minute, I get the message "Failed to connect" and the option of "Try again". The Try Again method gets the same results. Believe a Roku update has disabled my older model. However, my Logitech Revue works great, and have never had any problems with this now discontinued item. I solved all my problems by buying a Smart TV, so I really don't need Roku or Logitech Revue.    respond to this post   (2 responses - view)

Every Roku I've bought, including an older Roku 2, now on the 3rd Roku 3...not one of them has allowed me to DISABLE screen mirroring even though it is checked for disable, it REMAINS ENABLED. It was not even in settings menu on the Roku 2 model but still it was enabled.    respond to this post
