Why is there no answers about the power port? Where the power cable goes: the connection has come off? Where can I get it fixed?

My firestick works in one hdmi on my big TV. I moved it to a different smaller tv many times and it always worked. Out of nowhere it is just a black screen saying no connection on the small tv. What do I do? I've tried unplugging it and both hdmi ports...please help!!!

kozlowski_jillian - 답글

Did you get help with your question? I'm having same issue.

denverbodnar -

I am wondering the same thing, if there is an answer to this problem? I am able to use the firestick on my bigger flat screens but once I move it into my bedroom it will load as far as to the Amazon logo then I recieve a black screen afterwards. I followed the steps to troubleshoot it but nothing has worked yet

lishawicks -

I too am having the same issue. All I keep getting is the No Signal pop up. The thing is, I have never removed the fire stick and it does it to me for days on end almost every other month. It will work for awhile and then the pop starts coming. I didn’t get cable because I had the fire stick but now we’re not watching anything. It’s so beyond odd and I can’t find an answer. Does anyone know what to do?

michellebarton57mb - 답글

I looked at all the explanations about the video without sound and none of them apply to me. I set it up with my TV only, and I've actually tried to mute and unmute my TV to see if it would work, but it didn't, and my HDMI is perfectly fine. It has been inspected, and me and my family don't even touch that back there because there is no need. I've checked the settings and messed with the Dolby digital plus on and off and even automatic. None has worked for me. By any chance do you guys know a way to fix it?

Denisio Matranga - 답글

I figured it out.

I just completely turned off Dolby digital plus and rebooted it. It was on automatic before so I don't know why it stopped working all of a sudden. This worked for me.

Denisio Matranga - 답글

I was using the stick fine on my Samsung tv for around 3 months and then all of a sudden in displays a grey/white amazon logo on startup and then nothing. If I press the select button a couple of times I can hear it loading apps/shows in the background but no picture! I've tested it on a different tv upstairs (also Samsung) and it works fine.

I've purchased a second stick and it is having exactly the same issues with the tv downstairs. HDMI cable is fine as I've tested it with the laptop. Anyone else having a similar issue?!

After watching fire stick t.v. for a while the t.v. would say the fire stick is too hot a few minutes later the t.v. would shut off. A thermometer would be on the t.v. The t.v. would then shut down . I would have to reboot the fire stick. I am not sure what is going on.

ANTHONY - 답글

It's too hot. It's being overused. You have to let it cool down for a while. An iphone does the same thing when It gets too hot… Which is usually from leaving it inside a car or something, but that's what it is.

The amazon fire stick won't respond with the remote!!! I have googled things and gotten nothing!!! I rebooted it like you said and now it is on the picture display thingy. I don't know what to do because you people at amazon think you are so perfect! You think that none of your devices or things are going to malfunction, but boy are you wrong. I am never going to buy another amazon item ever again.

You can restart your fire stick by pressing the home screen and play button at the same time. I had the same issue at one point and unplugged it for a bit before trying again.

Hope it helps!

ian bennett - 답글

My fire stick worked for about 3 months then it started shutting down and restarting every 3 or 4 minutes. I figured out that it was overheating if I let it cool completely (stuck it in the freezer) it would run for about a half an hour then do the reset thing again. I opened it up and the circuit board has a large flat piece of metal that is supposed to be a heat sink it obviously isn’t large enough. I purchased on Amazon the following heat sink parts https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07217...

I stuck as many as would fit on the heat sink in the fire stick (you have to leave the case off) and watched 4 hours of movies without interruption. I unplug the power cord when I’m not using it so it doesn’t have a chance to overheat when I don’t need it.

I have rebooted, disconnected the fire stick, reset the app, cleared the cache (& data once-never again - too much hassle for it to still not work) and launched it from the home screen app settings.
