Hi,
 
If the Roku’s motherboard has been affected by a power surge, it will be easier to get a replacement device than to try and fix it, as doing this without a schematic diagram or service manual will be extremely difficult.
 
You could try finding a replacement motherboard to see if that is any cheaper. I searched online without success. You may have better luck
 
If you do manage to find one, here’s a link to the ifixit [guide|86247] guide which may be of some help.
 
AsIf you live in an area prone to power instability or to storms, as a suggestion for the future, connect the Roku via a surge protector or a powerboard that has inbuilt surge protection and where the manufacturer also provides cover for equipment damaged by electrical surges if connected via their product.
