Put your recovery disk that came with the system and run that. But only click on repair.

My Amazon fire stick is no longer working saying I need to press WPS button on router. My router doesn't have one. It's worked fine for 2 years. What can I do now?

You could try turning your router off for a few minutes and then back on again - that seems to cure most problems.

Unplugging the Firestick and starting fresh might also work. If nothing good happens and the router seems to be working ok with other computers and stuff then suspect a problem with the Firestick. Lots of modern stuff is designed to stop working soon after the warranty expires.

Will not start, jumped barely turn over once lights radio work when jumped.

Dead battery... Sometimes if the battery is very low then it must sit with the jumpers on for a few minutes to charge the battery. If everything worked fine after the engine started then the alternator is working ok. Check the battery terminals for corrosion and clean as necessary.

No audio through headphones

Hello, Had the same problem with my Rosen Headphones (see my entry on the 20 Aug) Take the batteries out of them and leave them out for at least 24 hours, put the batteries back in and they should work OK. I think the problem with my ones were that I did not use them for a few months but left the batteries in. So when not in use I wont be leaving the batteries in. Please note they will turn themselves off if they don't receive any IR signal after 3 mins.
