  1. Try restarting your Roku device and remote
    • Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries from the remote.
    • Remove the power cable from the Roku device, wait 5 seconds and then re-connect the power cable.
    • When the Roku device displays the home screen, reinsert the batteries.
    • Wait for 30 seconds while the remote establishes a connection with your Roku device.

2. Try re-pairing the remote

    • Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries from the remote.
    • Remove the power cable from the Roku device, wait 5 seconds and then re-connect the power cable.
    • When the Roku device displays the home screen, reinsert the batteries.
