The Roku set top box updates itself often. Not long after a reset I noticed one of the Roku boxes was doing something rather odd. The purple light continued to blink and it wouldn’t stop. The Roku unit worked great, but the purple light kept blinking. The light should not be blinking all of the time.

What could the problem stem from? I was sure it had something to do with the software updates. Yes, that had to be the problem. Wrong again.

It was the screensaver settings.

Steps To Stop The Purple Blinking Light

1. Go to Home.
2. Go to Settings.
3. Go To Screensaver.
4. Click on the Preview.
5. Go to Wait time (Not required but recommended).
6. Click the time desired (Not required but recommended).
7. That’s it. You’re done.
