Customer Question
I use to stream...

I use to stream with Roku on my TV all the time, however I had to stop when I sold my house & did not use it for 3 years. I just recently hooked it back up to my TV and tried to stream again & It has strong WiFi signal , but it does not give me any option to buy or rent a movie? I can only stream the trailers and my Amazon account looks like its still avtive, but I cannot order anything.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your tv, and can you guesstimate how old it is?

It is about 10 yrs old - Panasonic plasma TV

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

Was not an issue until just now when I started it back up for the first time in 3 yrs. I have a new Wifi from 3 yrs ago.

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

Nothing I can think of.

Thanks. On the back of the Roku (underneath the power plug), you should see a tiny pinhole reset button. Please press and hold that using a paperclip for 10 full seconds and release, and the Roku should try to run you through setup as if it were new. Let me know what happens once you try that.

Were you able to try those steps? Are you still having the same problem?

did those steps and it is still showing " other options unavailable" -where it should say " buy it now" when I click 'ok" on a movie on the M-Go movie account.
