If your Roku remote not working, then don’t worry you in the right article to get the resolution. By following 3 simple steps you will get your remote working with peace of mind. But before sharing the resolution you need to find out which Roku Remote you have in your hand.

Three Simple Fixes for Standard IR Roku remote-

1. Check Whether Signal is not blocked

Sometimes the problem might be due to an obstruction that’s blocking the signal making its way from the remote to the streaming device. Remove any objects that might be positioned in front of your Roku and make sure you’re pointing the remote directly at it.
If you see no obstruction in the way of a streaming device and remote and still not working, then check for further resolution.

2. Try to Reset the batteries

The next solution on the list is simple and an easy one: try to reset the batteries. Just open up the compartment at the back, remove the batteries, and then place them back into the remote. After that, just point the remote directly at your Roku and see if it now works.

3. Replace the batteries

If Fix 2 doesn’t work then replace the batteries with the new ones. Open the battery portion from the back and remove your old batteries and insert your new ones. If you cant go to market for buying the new one you can borrow from another device you might have in your house. Also, AA or AAA size batteries required depending on your remote. After that, point your remote directly at Roku and see whether it works or not.
