Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to help you with your concern today.

In many cases this is due to needing a firmware/software update and or needing to reset your router and clearing the network info from the roku and reentering it as well sometimes connecting to another network with a different login/password, since this is the express you dont have a direct ethernet connection which makes it a little harder.

Try to Disable Network Pings

In order to disable network pings, press the following buttons on your Roku remote (in order) to show the “Platform Secret Screen”.

Home button 5x, right, play, left, play, right.

Once you’re in, navigate up the menu and select: “Disable network pings”.

If that does not work then you will need to try connecting to another network to update the device. Run a software update. Once you’re connected, press the following buttons in order to unlock the “Secret Screen”: home x5, right x3, left x2.

Once you’re in, select the “Update Software” option and wait for the Roku to finish installing and then reboot. Disable network pings. After the software update, you’ll just need to repeat option 1 to disable network pings.

Bonuses are appreciated. If you feel you need to leave a 1-2 happy face, please instead reply back to me via the reply to expert button. The first two rating faces are negative feedback the next three after the first two are positive and only for those 3 do I get paid for my work. If for any reason you are not satisfied, please reply back to me for further assistance to which I will be glad to help you. Please also note that while I try very hard to correct the problem online for you, however not all problems can be fixed in this way. The deposit you placed when you opened the question is only a deposit and does not pay for my services until you click accept or one of the smile faces then I get paid for helping you. The rating system is only to rate me as an expert not the site or the product. If you have any problems for any reason, please reply back and let me know.
Thanks for using justanswer and have a great day!

What must the screen be on for this process
Electronics Technician: Joe, Technician replied 6 months ago

The tv "screen" would be set to the correct input/source that the roku is connected to the tv, as for example if the roku is connected to the tv via hdmi 1 then that is the input/source on the tv you would select which would then show the roku on screen, for you to see the error codes I would presume you already have it on the correct source. Everything that I have outlined for you to check deals with the roku and your router, you are not preforming any of those settings/changes etc via your tv/tv remote, you are only using the roku remote to proceed.

Thanks,

Joe
