Customer Question

I have a Roku 3 it works great and really no problems until the other day. I had earphones plugged into the remote, all of a sudden the audio quit. At first I thought it was the batteries and changed them to fresh units.
Upon powering up the remote there is no audio output, the audio level control shows no numbers to indicate the degree of loudness. Along side the ear phone icon is something that appears to be an exclamation mark. !! Looks like this ! no control of audio output and nothing heard in the head phone jack.
I also shut everything down, tried paring procedure, the remote and main unit pair up, but same result with the headphone output.

Hi Jack, finally found you. As I described above the problem, any ideas?
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Well , for one thing I don't think the Roku box itself lost the sound if it shows an exclamation mark to say there is no audio but rather its connection to that network .

First thing here is to unplug the Roku `s power cord 2 or 3 minutes or so
