Customer Question
I am having a...

I am having a really hard time getting my Roku Express to start to set up.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your device? How old is it?

Brand new out of the box. Teal Box express with the HDMI Cable

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I am trying to install it and the remote I have does not have a source button or anything like that.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the video expert to know before I connect you?

To be patient, as I have no idea what I am really doing.

- Is it HDMI-1 or 2 or 3?

The label is marked HDMI In. I can't seem to find the way to find that on my screen. Don't get it to do anything and get no different screen.
Electronics Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

OK - Could you please get me the complete model number written on back cover or side panel of TV?

It was manufactured in 2013.
Electronics Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

This TV has 2 HDMI inputs, one is on rear and one on side panel.

Which one is hooked with Roku device?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The one in the rear.
Electronics Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

OK, press Input button on TV remote and select HDMI-1 input source in list that should appear on screen.

Make sure Roku power is ON.

Do you get any thing on TV screen now?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I just got Spectrum and the remote does not have a input button that I can find.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Should I go try a input button on the side of the TV?
Electronics Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

Are you using LG Remote to push Input button on it located on top right corner below the TV button?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Electronics Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

Sure, try the Input button located on TV itself, push it a few times to go through different video inputs as one should display Roku screen.

Hi there and welcome

Remove the power to your wifi router, wait 5 minutes, connect the power to the router and tell me if the Roku can then connect to the wifi network please.

Thank you

I tried that and it did not work. I now have a error code 014.20. That should help you figure it out.. I also have tried to get my printer to try to find the network but it is doing the same thing as the ROKU.
Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 11 months ago

Ok, what is the make and model of your wifi router?

Ask Your Own Recorders and Players Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The router is a Arris TG1682.
Electronics Technician: Richard, Customer Service replied 11 months ago

On the back of it is a reset button. Using a paperclip, hold it in for 10 seconds then release

Wait 5 minutes then tell me how the Roku works please
