The background of the linking issues
The activation process of Roku player can’t be done unless it is linked to a Roku account. If you don’t know what Roku account is used for, then it contains all the info regarding the devices you currently own and channels you’ve installed. Also, you can have a look at the preferences and settings. Roku users know the importance of activating the device, and if you don’t have any idea as to why activation is being done, then just know this, if you don’t activate your Roku device, then you won’t be able to watch your favorite TV shows and movies, for which you have bought Roku player in the first place. To activate your Roku, you will have to visit my.roku.com/link on your PC or smartphone. There will be a link code that will be displayed on your Roku device, which you will have to add. Once you add the code, your Roku player gets activated and then, you can move onto further steps.
Now, the problem is arriving when people are entering Roku link code. They are getting an error, and despite entering the code for the 2nd time, they are not getting any success. This is a very frustrating part because people have received the right code, yet they can’t activate the Roku account due to a technical error.
Here are the steps that you can follow to fix the issue. These steps have worked for many Roku users, so there are chances that they could work for you as well.
- On your Roku device, you will have to click on ‘Help’ followed by ‘Get a new code’ option.
- After you see the new link code, go back to www Roku com link and type in that new code.
If this resolves the issue, then that’s great, but if your Roku device gets stuck on the Roku link enter code screen, then there is a separate process that you will have to follow. But, you should wait for a few minutes, as sometimes, the activation process takes a bit of time to complete.
If you see the same activation screen after an hour or so, then you must try the following steps.
- The first thing that you have to check is whether you have completed all the steps that are given on the website or not, which are necessary for activating your Roku device.
- In case you see ‘Roku Error 001’ on the screen with a message ‘not connected’ in the top right corner of the TV screen, then it signifies that the Roku device isn’t connected to any network. So, you will have to choose ‘try again’ option in order to get the device connected to the network that you own.
The process of how to set up Roku is quite easy if you get the right link code, and the same can get extremely difficult if the link code is not right or if there is any technical error in the device. The only option that is left in front of people is take Roku help. Since there are many Roku help and support providers available on the market these days, you can pick the best one according to your knowledge and convenience. Don’t try things on your own, as they could further damage the device.
