Why won't my Amazon Fire Tv Stick Turn on?

Why won't my Amazon Fire Tv Stick Turn on?

I was getting ready to watch a movie with my fire stick. Then it just went to "no signal". The internet is connected, remote works, I've unplugged it from the tv and power source for about 5 minutes and it still won't turn on. I'm getting so frustrated please someone help me to get my fire stick to turn on.

"I had the same issue. I called Amazon and they provided me with the following suggestion that worked.

Keep your tv on and unplug the tv from the wall. Hold the power button for 30 seconds (while the tv is on and unplugged from the wall). After 30 seconds replug the tv and turn it back on. Go to the fire stick input channel and it should be working."

"Many users of fire sticks complained that their fire sticks won’t turn on.

I was facing the same issue, here I describe the full guide how I turn on my Firestick at my own & what are the possible reasons for occurring this issue

Before going ahead we need to know all the possible reasons for occurring this issue.

Power Cord Not Inserted ProperlyHDMI Ports or Cables Damaged or LooseCharging port or charging cable damagedPower adaptor damaged


All possible steps to turn on the fire stick:

For mine this one works, my power cord is not inserted properly. I unplugged the power cord & held the power button then plugged it back on, actually it's working for me.Sometimes HDMI ports get damaged or HDMI cables inserted but loose, unplug the HDMI cables once then reinsert them, I hope this will work for you if yes then please leave your comment.Sometimes your charging cable gets damaged, tries to change the charging cable, or if possible then also changes the charging adaptor.Try to check your fire stick in another device, sometimes this will get you an idea where the problem actually occurred.Try to restart your device. Hold the Select and Play / Pause buttons to restart the device or you can go to settings> Device> Fire TV menu>Restart.I hope this will surely solve your Fire stick won’t turn on problem, if not then visit the website to contact Fire stick support experts."

"You might want to try your Amazon Fire Stick in another device. It could be that the HDMI port that it was plugged into could have gone bad.

Try it in another device that you have access to that has an HDMI port on it. And change out the charging cable with another one that you know works. Pinning down problems with an electronic device sometimes takes some extra ""creative work arounds"".

If all else fails, I'd contact Amazon support for Amazon Devices. Hope you get your Fire Stick working again!"

Was just experiencing the same problem. I finally figured out my power adapter had gone out. Swapped it with the one I charge my phone with and viola. Powered right up. I thought maybe the dongle adapter had gone out because that happened to a friend of mine so I think that’s a common problem as well.

"If you’re tried to:

(I’m assuming that you have an Amazon account and that you’ve REGISTERED and activated your Fire Stick)

1) Reset it to factory defaults

2) Tried another “power cable” to see if the one you’re using is defective

3) If you’re using the HDMI “dongle adapter”, remove it and try to plug the Fire Stick directly

into the HDMI port.

4) Failing everything else, I’d contact Amazon Support and see if they can get you up and running.

After all, those folks deal with those all day long and might have some “tips/tricks” that no one has mentioned online.

I’m sincerely sorry that it’s giving you grief, “electronic frustration” is one of the most aggravating situations with which to deal…….."

HERES HOW TO ACTUALLY DO THIS SO IT MAKES SENSE: unplug tv while it's on. Hold down the tv power button for 40 seconds (yes while it's unplugged). Plug in tv. Turn ok TV and switch to whatever your fire stick input is. It works. It's magic. You're welcome.
