I can't get out of the error message on my roku screen. Do I use the roku remote when I go to the settings menu? Don't know where this is on the remote.
Expert:  Engineer John C. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, always the remote.

You can unplug it from the electric outlet and plug it back. Then wait 5 minutes and follow my previous procedure.

Thank you.

well, roku comes up on screen but instructions are not as you have given me. It just shows 3 things such as internet network, roku wireless. You can't click onto any of these, just have to click to continue, then select network (ATT936), then put in password, then I get same error message re: can't connect to wireless network.

John C. is either offline or working on another call from a different client. I have been waiting for around 20 minutes for a reply.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
John - I still need your help. I HAVEN'T received a reply from you since I followed your instructions... still can't get into roku with your instructions.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
JOHN, are you still with me? I finally put in the correct password XXXXX roku but it tells me that to activate roku I have to go to their link, which I did, put in their code (done) then it just goes to their website. I am confused and frustrated.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
JOHN, the roku is finally working. thanks for your patience and help.
