Roku link code doesn’t work? How to fix

Ideally, it should be easy to link the Roku device to your account. However, from time to time you might experience some issues during the activation process.

Below is a look at some of the top ones and their solutions.

1. No link code displayed

One of the top issues is the link code failing to display on the activation screen. This can be due to a temporary issue with your device or missing the activation screen altogether.

When a link code isn’t displayed on Roku, you can get a new one by pressing the “*” (star/asterisk) button.

2. Device stuck on the link code screen

The screen can take a few minutes to update after activating your device.

However, if the screen continues to be stuck, the issue will most likely be due to not completing all the steps on the website. Complete all the steps for the screen to update.

3. Error message after entering link code

Another common issue is getting an error message after entering the activation code. This can be due to a number due:

  • A typing error – recheck it, and then enter it again
  • A temporary network issue – check again after a few minutes to see if the issue will resolve

If the error persists, you can get a new code on your device by pressing the “*” (star/asterisk) button. Re-enter the activation website to complete the activation process.

Roku offers the best entertainment content in the form of the latest films and trending TV shows. You can enjoy all of these by activating your device through a simple activation process using a link code.

In the event there are any issues getting or using the Roku link code, the above solutions can help to resolve the problem.
