amazon firestick is not working
My amazon firestick has stopped working. I have changed hdmi port, power source and tried all the instructions from amazons site. The firestick isn't even showing anything on screen
I had a short in the extender. I removed it and plugged my stick directly into my HDMI port and it worked fine.
People encounter fire stick not working issue, this issue occurred due to several reasons.
1. Firestick is not connected to Wifi.
2. Firestick weak signal strength.
3. Problem with HDMI cables.
4. Problem with Batteries
5. Device overheated
Steps to solve the firestick not working issue:
Step1: check the connection with wifi: check Wifi is compatible with Firestick or not.
Now check the specification of Wifi. it should be 5GHz.
still, fire sticks not working, try the next step.
Step2: Check the signal strength:
Check the signal strength on the Firestick, if it’s good or excellent then don’t worry.
Step3: Check HDMI cables:
Check HDMI cables inserted properly or check if not loose.
Plug out the cable, then insert again and switch it on.
Step4: Change the batteries:
Replace the batteries with a new one.
Step5: Device overheated: The problem in the motherboard usually occurs due to overheating. Instead of repairing that I suggest you buy a new Amazon Fire Stick.
You can use your TV remote to access the menu on the firestick
you can use tv remote keys .... arrow keys up/down ...left /right and centre button (enter) also exit button
i got mine working make sure amazon remote is near TV with new battery's in
When fire stick screen came on i scrolled along to settings on firestick using TV remote

i tired removing the extender first didn’t work ! so i tired a different HDMI Port and it work
What I did was I unplugged the FireTV stick hdmi, and then plugged it in without the hdmi because technically you don’t need it. Once you plug it in it will reboot and everything will be normal. You can then plug the hdmi back into the fire tv stick and it will be fixed!
I had the same problem, I've just taken the adaptor off and plugged into a different HDMi port and working fine now
As noted in the comment by m.goodwin24, the micro-USB port can be faulty. If you have extremely good soldering skills, this is something you can fix. It just requires removing the case and resoldering the pins on the port. But note that the pins are very small and close together, so this requires a fine-tip soldering iron and good skill to work on.
To verify whether you have this problem or not, you can try a couple of things. One is to use the USB cable to plug the Fire TV into a computer. If the computer doesn’t recognize that any device has been plugged in, you may have this problem. You can also use a USB port power measuring device which you plug in between the power adapter and the Fire TV. If it shows 0 mA current draw, then you probably also have this problem.
Talked to 4 different customer support firestick agents over 3 days. Everyone read from the same book and went thru the exact same procedures. Finally I was told that I had a software or hardware issue and my only alternative was to replace it. Warranty ran out 2 months ago! I love my fire sticks, I have 5 of them. I hope that this isn’t a common problem.
Have you checked the power source? If not, cross-check the power source and cable of firestick. Use wall adapter, not the tv’s USB to power the firestick. If firestick remote is not working, try using a firestick remote app which also works as the best alternative to the physical remote of firestick.
You can also restart your device with your remote. To do so, press and hold the select button and the Play/Pause button at the same time for 5 seconds or until you see your device restart. Lastly, you can restart your device by going to Settings→ Device→ and hitting Restart from your Fire TV menu. amazon firestick is not working
I just stuck mine in the fridge for 10 minutes to cool down. Worked like a charm!
I changed the HDMI extender. Problem solved!
I had the same issue and tried unplugging everything, changing batteries in the remote, and even changed cable. I finally unplugged everything, took batteries out of remote and left sitting for about 12 hours. In the morning I put the batteries back in remote, plugged stick back into tv and once I turned everything on, I let that sit for about 5 mins and it worked! Everything is working. Frustrated that this can happen and something I'll prob have to deal with frequently from now on.
i dont exactly have that kind of problem, mine is stuck on the boot screen. ive changed the HDMI port and plugged it into an outlet and it just stays right on the boot screen.
My picture freezes for split second then jumps back 2secs to play what you just saw 2secs ago.Done all the usual things to clear space.
