Amazon Video registration code

Fri Mar 13, 2009 9:06 am

I got the registration code, but didn't write it down. By the time I got things set up on my computer Amazon was asking for this number, and I didn't have it. What can I do to retrieve it or start over?

Just start over, now that you know what to expect. Also, Amazon needs to communicate with the player to complete the registration, so don't unplug it or anything until you're done.

I tried to start over but the Roku player shows all of the Amazon videos, but wants a pin number. I can't back up. The Amazon site will not give me the pin without the registration.

Sorry, I know I should have written that down.

If you go to www.amazon.com/roku, it should let you run through the entire process again. If you already have the Roku player registered, the web page will indicate this and you can reset your PIN if you don't remember what it is.

As I made the same mistake -- do I have to rest the Roku box first?

Thanks

I reset the Roku and started over, it all came back. Write down the numbers. :lol:

Here's the trick -- I thought the PIN was the Activation code (which it can be, if it's completely numeric). It's a 5 digit number you define. If like me, you registered the roku, but then attempted to enter the activation code (alphaNumeric), and got Loop:see Loop, goto this page on the amazon site:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/rok ... anage_roku

There you will see the option to manage your account, and enter the PIN (or change it)

Cheers!
