Twitch TV 6-digit Activation Code Not Working? [How To Fix]
If the Twitch activation code doesn’t work or just isn’t showing on your Roku or TV, check out the fixes given below:
1. Reactivate Your Device
You’ll be able to resend the code to your device by navigating Menu Bar > Twitch > Activation.
Now, you will receive the activation code. After getting the code, simply follow the steps mentioned above depending on the device you’re using and reactivate Twitch on your device.
2. Switch From Dark Mode
Are you using Dark Mode or lowering the resolution of your media device in recent times? Because, it is possible your activation code could be displayed in a darker color, which makes it nearly impossible that you can view the code. Switch from Dark Mode or enhance your TV or Monitor’s brightness so you can view the code easily.
3. Change Your HDMI Cable
If you are using an older HDMI cable it could be the reason for the code to not show up. If you are a media streaming device user, unplug the HDMI cable of your device for about 30 seconds and plug it again in. If the code still doesn’t show up, change your HDMI cable and try again.
In case you are an Apple TV user, just go to Settings > Audio/Video > TV Resolution, and choose “Auto“.
