Steps to solve the Amazon Firestick Frozen Error
Troubleshoot the remote
In the first place, do this simple remote checking step. Troubleshoot the remote by checking out the batteries, pairing with the Fire TV or any other defects. Rectify the necessary one and check to navigate on the firestick.
Reconnect the firestick
If the fault is not with the remote, then unplug the firestick from your TV and reconnect again after a while. In case of fire TV streaming device, turn off the device, remove and power cord and connect again.
If your remote works properly, then you can simply reset the fire stick using remote
- Press and hold the select & play button simultaneously for a few seconds
- You will receive a message on the screen and the fire TV will automatically shut down
- After a few seconds, it will restart and works from the beginning
- By doing this, you can simply reset without plugging and unplugging the firestick from your TV
- You can also restart the device using the menu options, Settings->Device->Restart in the fire TV menu
Always use the power adapter
Connecting the firestick directly to the TV port is not a recommended one. It’s because, in some cases, the firestick will get insufficient power from the TV output. And, maybe because of this, there are chances of freezing. So always use the power adapter, connect one end to the firestick and the adapter to the power outlet.
Check the HDMI extender
Similar to the previous step, use the high-speed HDMI cable that you have gotten from the package. Using any other random HDMI cable will lead to freezing of the content that is loading. Ensure your TV port is defect-free or not, otherwise, try to connect the HDMI cable to other available ports in your TV.
Some users may face some faults, such as remaining in the Fire TV logo screen for a long duration. In that case, wait for some time duration until the content loading. If it takes too much time, then go for the above-mentioned steps. If you have turned off your fire TV device during the software update, then leave the device for some time duration rather than turning on immediately.
