If my wifi connection is good how come my fire stick won't work


reset your router. a lot of times your wifi signal strength is good but no data is being transferred. on a computer you would notice a orange triangle hovering over the wifi strength indicator denoting no data is being transferred, but a fire stick doesn't have that feature built into the firmware. so reset the router or reset the first stick and the connection should be re-established.

How can I get my new Amazon fire tv stick to install? Every thing is plugged in correctly and powered up but the screen says it "Can't contact Amazon.com so try a new router or wireless network"


Check this first:
  • Connect your Amazon Fire TV device to one of these network or router types:
    • Open, WEP, WPA-PSK, and WPA2-PSK encrypted networks
    • B, G, and N routers on 2.4Ghz
    • A and N routers on 5Ghz
    • Hidden networks
  • Enable wireless connectivity on your Amazon Fire TV device. From the Home screen, select Settings > System > Wi-Fi.
  • Make sure you know your network password (if required). If you see a lock icon, a network password is required. This password is not your Amazon account password.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is not down. Restart your router and modem to solve most Wi-Fi network issues.
  • Do not place your wireless router or Amazon Fire TV device in a cabinet, as it impacts your Wi-Fi signal strength.
Also, try this for Fire TV Stick:
  • Use the included HDMI extender to optimize the location of your Fire TV Stick. The HDMI extender can improve your wireless connectivity by positioning your Fire TV Stick further from the TV.
  • Plug the power cord into the included power adapter and then into a wall outlet to ensure the device receives enough power for optimal performance.


Still having trouble?
  • Restart your Amazon Fire TV device. Disconnect the power cord from your Amazon Fire TV device for three seconds, and then plug the power cord back in.
Tip: You can also restart your Amazon Fire TV device with your remote. Press and hold the Select button and the Play button at the same time until the Amazon Fire TV device restarts (about five seconds). Or go to Settings > System > Restart.

The tv show or movie loads in Amazon, Netflix, Acorn, etc... I can see it but then it won't play. I can forward it but it still won't play.

Is is PSP 3000 can play games via memory stick and not in the UMD???pls response Ker


yes, you can connect online on the PSP store under the XMB to download play demos/videos/comics among other thing. Just be sure to have a WiFi connection in the area and connect. They just dropped a bunch of games to under $20.

It works just like the PSPgo but you still have UMD access:-)

Just update to the latest firmware and look through the menus to find it.
