Did you change the TV input setting on your TV to the correct HDMI input? Most Televisions will take a few seconds to scan the input before displaying any image. Most newer televisions have multiple HDMI inputs, and you might need to select each one, wait several seconds to see if there's a signal, and then move on to the next input, until you find which HDMI input has the Roku start screen signal.

Just hooked up the streaming stick to HDMI to the TV. nothing is showing up, What do I do now?


Sounds like you have a bad connection on either your roku stick or your HDMI PORT.Does you ROKU stick show a white light if not check power cable or electrical plug.
Try wiggling ROKU stick just a hair or push it in and out until you get a signal..A purple screen with the words ROKU should show up on TV.If you have a bad port on TV it would have to be replaced but this is rare,if you have a second port on tv try that.Have you tried your ROKU stick on another tv?Does your streaming stick go in vertically or horizontally,if it goes in vertically it may be pressing against side of tv prohibiting a good connection.You could try a HDMI cable, plug the HDMI cable into tv and put ROKU in other side of cable.There is also a restart button on ROKU stick push it and it will start blinking,if it doesn't light up you may have a defective ROKU stick.

The light just blink green it doesn't let me do anything but blink green.


If you plug the Roku into the back of the TV in an HDMI port, you need to hit the Input button on the TV to change (probably) from HDMI1 to HDMI2. Once you are on HDMI2, you should see the Roku emblem. Then you need to set up the Roku to see your wireless signal.

How do I hook up a roku stick?


I am guessing you mean the HDMI connector type Roku?

You simply plug the Roku into a free HDMI port on your TV, then switch your TV input to the proper HDMI selection, then start your setup. I believe this also needs to be plugged into the wall for power as HDMI does not supply power.

If you have an iPhone or other similar devices, you can download the ROKU app to control the device.

The link I provided may help. Setup help

Does it have a USB port to connect a Ruko stick? If not, how can I connect it?


The KDF-42WE655 does not have a USB port. The current Roku sticks plug into the HDMI port on the TV. You will need to use the power adapter that came with the unit. Plug the USB cord (mini or micro USB) into the back (or side) of the Roku Stick and then plug the power adapter into a nearby power outlet. (It's a 5V 1A DC power adapter.) Roku sells this adapter separately on their Accessories page: https://www.roku.com/accessories . It's ~$10. If you have mounted your TV such that the power outlet is hidden behind the TV, you'll get to the outlet or use another nearby outlet. (Make sure to avoid a tripping hazard if you use an extension cord or power strip to increase the number of available outlets.)

I hope this helps.

How do I connect my new roku?


You could see something for sure.

Verify the input you have the Roku plugged into is the one you currently have selected on the TV.

If that doesn't work, plug use a paperclip to press the small "reset" button button the Roku.

You can also choose to perform a hard reset:

Hard reset

If a soft reset doesn't fix your problem, a hard reset may be your only option. This will clear all data off the Roku 2 and reset it to factory default settings.
1. Remove all cables except the Power cord.
2. Using a paper clip, press and hold the Reset button on the back of the device for about 15 seconds.
3. Continue to hold the Reset button, then remove the Power cord from the back of the unit.
4. Release the Reset button, then plug all of the cords back into the device.
The Roku 2 should walk you through the setup process again.
You can also accomplish a hard reset by selecting Settings > Factory reset > Factory reset > Yes on the device's menu.

Finally, try using a different HDMI cable.

Let me know if any of this helps.
