My Firestick keeps restarting!

There is no doubt that the Amazon Firestick is an amazing gadget that lets you watch your favorite online streaming App on your TV like VTV, NetFlix, YouTube, Hulu, Pandora and many more over your Wifi. But, do you want you should do when it starts restarting again and again? Is it a hardware problem or something else that can be fixed easily?

Below are the simple hacks that you can use to solve this problem.

 Using power supply directly instead of TV USB cable

All the USB port doesn’t provide the required power supply needed for the FireStick to operate normal. So, if your FireStick is connected to your TV via USB cable then try connecting it with the power supply. The adequate power supply can make the FireStick start normally.

Replace or change the power adapter

The original FireStick comes with a Power Adapter of 1 Amp and most of the times just using a new adapter or replacing the adapter with a 2 Amp adapter solves the restarting problem.

Use of USB port and power extensions do connectivity easier where direct power supply is not available but at the same time they can lead to several problems with adequate power supply.

So, remove any extension if you are having the restart problem.

Remove other connected gadgets with HDMI port

Almost every TV comes with 2 or more HDMI ports and therefore, it makes it easier for us to connect two or more devices with the HDMI ports.  Sometimes, the connection of two or more gadgets in a single TV doesn’t provide adequate power to all the attached gadgets.

Try removing other connected gadgets with the HDMI ports or plugging them one by one to check out which device is causing the problem.

  • Click on the My Fire TV > About.
  • Now, click on the “Check for system update” option.

This new feature on your device allows you to control the HDMI connected devices with one remote only. Since, every gadget has its own way of implementation of HDMI CEC, try switching it off to get rid of the problem.

Use the below steps to switch the HDMI CEC Off

  • Go to the Fire TV settings and choose Display and Sound.
  • Click on HDMI CEC device control and switch Off the feature.

Replace the Batteries from the Remote
