Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it.

Those are all the numbers on the back of the box:

Thanks for the info.

- Does TV display Roku logo screen when select video source for that?

- Have you tired to unplug Roku box power cord from wall outlet for 5 minutes to reset, replug back in and check?

If not yet, can you try it now and reply back with the result?

I did unplug the Roku box, replug it and then got the Roku logo on the TV screen which disappeared few seconds later and still nothing happened.
Electronics Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 2 years ago

OK, so Roku isn't showing home screen after logo screen, this is odd.

Can you try to unplug TV power cord as well for 10 minutes and again check?
