MM, most roku,s have a reset button on the back of them next to power cord, you can do a soft reset, where you take a paper clip and push in reset button for 1 second, if that does not work unplug everything except the power on roku and push in with paper clip the reset button for 15 seconds then unplug power cord, then after a couple more seconds, release the reset key, wait a couple minutes and plug everything back in and boot it up, good luck

Roku 2 remote won't work


If you have a Wi-Fi Roku remote or a bluetooth Roku Remote, the remote needs to be paired with the unit first before you can control the device. To pair the unit with the remote, you can do the following:

  1. Turn off the Roku player for 30 seconds by unplugging the power cord from the power outlet.
  2. Once you have the bouncing Roku on your TV screen, open the battery compartment of the remote and press the purple button there once.
  3. The Led on the remote should start blinking.
  4. Leave the Led blinking and don't press any button on your Roku remote.
  5. Wait for the Led to stop blinking.
  6. Once the Led stopped blinking, try to test any button and see if it works.

My roku suddenly only showing sound and no picture, in fact when the program is done uploading, the screen turns blue and can only hear it. What should I do?

Out of the blue, my ROKU had sound but no picture.

To correct, I unplugged the Roku for 5 minutes. I restarted the Roku and the problem was corrected.

Timer light blinking but ac doesnt start. how to cancel timer

Since you didn't mention what make or model AC unit you have, I can only tell you what to do in generalities. Turn the Master ON/OFF to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, during the 15 minute timeout, the unit's electronics reset them self and reverted back to the original factory settings. If so, you can set the controls however you desire.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

When you turn it on it does not work it just blinks and blinks

You can try to get it to reset itself by doing the following:
Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit and leave unplugged for 12 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Set the controls as you normally do. Hopefully, the 12 - 15 minute timeout, allowed the unit to reset itself.

Generally, this works 90% of the time. I hope it works for you.
