How to Reset the Roku box

Reset Roku box

The Roku is an amazing piece of hardware with its ability to replace cable TV, all packed in a box that fits in the palm of your hand. As great as the device is, it’s not perfect. It freezes at times. There have been several occasions where mine has been stuck on a “retrieving” screen. Other times, the device won’t start properly.

Soft Reset

A soft reset will simply restart the Roku without losing data or settings.
From Remote

Using Button (Older Models)

Find the Reset button on the back of the device. It’s located above the power port.
Using a paper clip, press the button, then release after about one second. The device should reset successfully.

Power Pull

If none of the above soft reset options work for you, you may need to disconnect the power cord for about 20 seconds, then plugging it back in.

Hard Reset

A hard reset will clear all settings from the device and reset it to factory defaults.
Via Menu

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 and reset it to factory default settings.

From the Home screen, select the following depending on your device:

Settings” > “System” > “Advanced system settings” > “Factory reset“.
Settings” > “Factory reset” > “Factory reset” > “Yes“.
