  1. I had my Roku Express plugged into the USB connector on my 40" Element TV, and it worked perfectly fine for several years. However, one night a couple of months ago the WiFi went out from my router, apparently during a system update from the local Spectrum Cable provider.

    I noticed the Roku flashing, indicating loss of signal, so I immediately turned everything off and disconnected the Roku from the TV, both USB and HDMI connectors.

    After the signal came back and everything seemed ok, I plugged everything back in and turned everything back on. - It was at that point that I noticed a dark splotch that takes up about 2/3 of the screen, primarily to the left side,that has been there ever since.

    The TV is plugged into a very good quality surge protector, but there was never any loss of electrical signal, just WiFi only.

    I have since unplugged the Roku from the TV's USB connector, and am using the AC/USB adapter that came with the unit. But it doesn't appear to be making any difference.

    Can anybody offer any ideas or advice on what could have happened, and how I might be able to fix it? - I've had electronics training from the late 1980s to early 90s, so I am not exactly what you might call a novice; I just wasn't taught this type of technology.

    Any ideas or help would be appreciated very much. Thanks!

  2. Just got off phone with customer service, no help at all. I have had my RoKu for 2 years and for the last year I have been getting the insufficient power message constantly. The rep told me my RoKu was corrupted on my end from my computer and they would download software to fix it however it is 99.99 a year or I could buy a new RoKu. What a scam. I m switching to Apple TV
    Never again RoKu
