Roku Reset – How to Fix a Freezing Roku
Although the Roku 2 is a great little device– they have to ability to bring media from a variety of sources to your TV without Cable, Antennas, or large monthly bills – they do have their flaws. My HD Cable DVR locks up once in a while and I have to restart it. The Roku is no different. There they sometimes get stuck on a “retrieving” screen. Other times, the device won’t start properly.
When you have problems with the Roku 2, the best solution is usually a soft reset. If that doesn’t fix the issues, a factory hard reset will usually do the trick. Here’s how you can do both. Below I’ll show you how to reset Roku 2 and other Roku devices (most Roku products can be reset in the same fashion. The remote method of resetting might be different, but most or all have a reset button on the back)
