Roku is a streaming device that lets you turn your non-Smart TV into the Smart one. However, many users are using it even with Smart TVs, as Roku devices offer a lot of streaming channels, including live ones, streaming services (like Netflix, Disney Plus, or HBO Max), and different apps (like Spotify and YouTube).

All Roku devices come with a remote in a box, but sometimes it may stop working properly and in this case, you will need to reset it in order to fix the problem.

That’s quite a straightforward process, so you can do it manually at your home. Here’s how.
