Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

There are several possible causes of this issue, including a temporary software/firmware glitch, or a hardware failure.

Initially, please unplug power to the roku box for at least 5 minutes, then replug.

If no change, look on the back of the roku for a small hole labeled reset, press and hold a paperclip or pin in there for about 15 seconds (with power connected). If it is still unresponsive at that point, it would leave only the possibility of a hardware fault. In that case it would need to be replaced, which should be covered under the roku warranty. In that case call(###) ###-####to file a warranty claim and they would send you a new roku.

My apologies for the potentially bad news.
