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.

Well, it seems that somebody has finally recognized the problem. Here is a statement from Roku about the Netflix issue:

I have a Roku 3 that will no longer open the NETFLIX app. I press the remote and nothing happens. Hulu, Amazon Prime, and all other apps work fine, but the Netflix app won't open. I installed a Micro SD card, but that didin't help. I restarted and re-set the Roku 3 but that didn't help either. What is wrong?    respond to this post   (1 response - view)

I have a Roku3 - I request an update - then do a restart and the problem happens -- I am sitting on the home page with all the channels -- I did not press anything -- a couple minutes later, a video trailer for "Derek" was playing in the background -- but I could not see anything -- I can only hear it ,, At first I had no idea it was a Netflix video trailer -- once I realized that --- I pressed on the Netflix channel and could see the Derek trailer still playing

it doesn't happen every time - but it continues to happen    respond to this post

My Roku just started causing flashing, flickering and intermittent sound while playing a Netflix movie. Any ideas on how to fix this. The TV is working fine.

Thank you for your help!!!    respond to this post

I have also had loading/stalling problems with the Netflix app on my Roku 3. Restarts, reboots, remove/reinstall Netflix app - nothing worked. I still suffer the stalls at 25% loading, or sometimes it just hangsup on the Netflix red logo page. Sometimes I get an error screen that says "Try again", "system details", or "exit". I called Netflix and they were not admitting to issues, but advised me to open my Netflix account online and change the download speed from "High" (the default) to "medium". This worked last night, but I will continue to monitor this for a few days. The picture is somewhat softer, but viewable. There were still a few hiccups, but they resolved within seconds rather than minutes. Internet speed tests for my FIOS system are normal. I suspect some Netflix software mixup that doesn't work well with Roku since all the other services like Amazon, Hulu, Crackle etc are normal HD and 5.1 SS. I will suffer the Netflix download speed reduction for a while until the issue is resolved.    respond to this post

There is a temporary fix for viewing MLB on your Roku2sx if you aren't already aware.

Go to home on your roku than settings. Go to display mode and change to 16x9 screen size and than go back and click on to the game you would like to watch. I've changed back to 1080p and it still worked but then a couple of times since i've had to go back to 16x9 to reactivate the games. I hope this works for you.    respond to this post   (1 response - view)

Netflix is the problem. I was on chat with a Netflix tech and they are aware of the problem and on their site, they had a big headline on one of their pages that said, "there is a problem with Netflix and Roku players, IT is working on a fix..." or something similar to that effect. I changed my password on the web and then tried to log in with it on my Roku, and of course, it wouldn't work. It is Netflix...becoming a headache as a company.    respond to this post   (5 responses - view)
