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

As a starting point, we'll need to reset the roku system:
Power off the tv and disconnect both power and hdmi from the roku.
Remove the batteries from the roku remote
Wait 5 minutes,
reconnect hdmi, power the tv on, then plug the roku power back in
put in a new set of fresh batteries into the roku remote
when you see the roku logo show on screen, press and hold the HOME button on the roku remote for 15 seconds.

Let me know the results.

Thank you,
Nathan

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
why was I charged 26 instead of 5 refundable as stated by roku. also still have the connection problem. request refund
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 7 months ago

You were charged the appropriate amount. The fee is not and never was only $5, and is not refunded.

The 5 was just to post your question, and would be refunded if you did not get an answer at all. Once you started corresponding with an expert (me) you were charged the agreed upon balance of the total fee. That covers my time and expertise in working with you.

Do you wish to continue?
