How to Restart Your Roku TV


There are several methods for resetting your Roku streaming device in the case that it is experiencing troubles or is not functioning as it should be. In order to begin, you should try to reset your Roku device in the first instance. This soft reset will not affect any of your settings, and it will not log you out of any of your favourite channels. A great number of times, this will resolve the issue of channels or applications that are constantly freezing or crashing.

Final option: If you are still experiencing problems, you can do a factory reset, which is a more comprehensive solution that restores your device to its factory original settings.

How to Restart a Roku device 

You can restart your Roku by selecting Restart from the Settings menu. Alternatively, you can do a hard reboot by pressing a series of buttons on your Roku remote or by unplugging your Roku from its power source.

To restart your Roku from Settings: 

1. From the “Home” menu, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the screen and select “Settings.” 

2. Choosing the “Settings” menu on the remote is accomplished by pressing the “OK” button on the remote.

3. Select “System” from the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page. To enter the menu on your remote control, press the “OK” button.

4. From the drop-down menu, select “System restart” and then press “OK” on your remote control to complete the process.

5. Select the “Restart” option from the drop-down menu. If you look closely, you’ll notice that your smartphone will turn off and then back on. During the first boot-up process, you will notice the Roku logo bouncing back and forth on the screen.

To reboot your Roku if it’s frozen: 

You may experience freezing and inability to navigate through the menus or choose content if your Roku is affected by a more serious problem. Forcing a reboot will necessitate the use of a sequence of buttons on your remote control in this case.

1. To return to the previous screen, press the “Home” button five times on your keyboard.

2. Press the “Up” arrow on your keyboard once more.

3. Press the “Rewind” button on your keyboard twice more times to go back one step.

4. Press the “Fast Forward” button on your keyboard twice more times to advance the video.

When you have completed the process of pressing the buttons in the correct order, your Roku will shut down. Your home screen should emerge after a few seconds of the Roku logo bouncing about, and the Roku logo should show again after a few more seconds.

If you have an issue with one of your installed channel apps, or if you have a problem with the device itself, you may find yourself having to reset your device on a regular basis in order for it to work properly. To test whether it makes a difference, try deleting and re-installing any newly installed channel apps. Please contact Roku support if you are encountering troubles with your device on a consistent basis.
