Please try a hard reset of the Roku. To do this locate the tiny pinhole underneath the power cord inlet on the Roku. Use a paperclip and press and hold the button for 8 seconds and release. The Roku letters will appear on the screen and you will then be prompted to set the Roku up as if it were new. Please let me know what happens once you try those steps.
