Change the batteries

Maybe there’s an issue with your Tv controller instead of your Roku tv. If you are unable to turn on and off your TV or unable to use any buttons then maybe your Roku TV remote has run out of batteries. Try to replace the old batteries with the new ones and maybe it will solve your issue.

Check the internet connectivity

If you’re still getting the recovery mode then there are some chances that you’re facing this issue because your Internet isn’t working properly, to check this. Try to play some online YouTube videos on your smartphone or laptop and if you find that video is playing intermittently then ask your ISP (Internet service provider) to resolve the problem once your Internet starts working fine, restart your tv and try to connect to a network.
