Tips and tricks to resolve roku issues

  • It may happen that you may not find roku channel while searching for the channel as explained in step 3 above. This implies your device is not compatible with roku channel. So you have to bear in mind that roku channel is only available in current roku streaming devices.
  • Well, our users have faced the problem of playback on the roku channel. Many times it starts but suddenly stops or even doesn’t start at all. So here I am guiding you on how to resolve various playback issues-

Issue no-1: Cannot play specific video

Select another video from the current channel. If that video works well then there are

possible problems in bandwidth or internet service. Call the customer support team.

Issue no-2: Video play error from a single channel

  1. Before taking any further step please make sure that your channel is properly linked and signed in with your subscription account.
  2. There is another case where you need to link your channel with the cable or satellite account using your login details. Read the instructions given on the screen carefully.
  3. Again if you Can’t play video from a single channel then try other channels. If it plays well on other channels then contact the support team for further assistance.

Issue no 3: Not a single video is working on any channel

Here in this case you have to check issues with the connection to the roku device-

  1. Visit setting> Network> About.
  2. Read the status. It will show- Connected or roku devices are not connected to the internet.
  3. So in case of non connection you have to select the set up connection and carefully read all the instructions displayed on the screen.
  4. After the connection update follows internet connection testing. For this, select test connection to start the network connection test.

Still playback issue? Restart both roku device and router.

Issue no 4: Poor video quality or rebuffering

  • Here the major issue may be the network. So ask your Internet service provider for possible outages. Close all the extra devices that are consuming internet data.
  • Remember to avoid the connection of Roku devices with the cellular network.
  • Cellular networks always provide poor stream quality with random fluctuations.
  • Do you wish to uninstall the Roku channel from your device- Just flash/ highlight it on your home screen. There is a star button (*) on your remote. Press it and select the “remove channel” tab.
  • Note that the security of your Roku device is equally important. You don’t want everyone to install channels on your Roku device. So create a 4- digit pin for your Roku account.
