Customer Question
My Roku won't work...

My Roku won't work. I have enjoyed it for several months. I changed the batteries. I can get the Roku page, but the remote won't work.

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

Do you mean the Roku remote or the Tv

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

Everything worked fine until last night.
