this is all i can find out. How do I fix my Firestick?
Hold down the Select + Play buttons together for 5 seconds to Restart the device. Restart the device: Settings > System > Restart, then once restarted unplug the power cable for 5 seconds then plug back in. I hope this helps you and hopefully fixes your Fire TV issues. problem with the Amazon Fire Stick and the remote.30 Sep 2015
The TV remote has a button for that. Input Select or Source or SEL. However simply turning off anything except the firestick should make it work. I presume the firestick came with a remote. Simply turning it off and on from that should do it. Make sure you can see the firestick when you press the buttons.
I have no experience of these but as they work by connecting to the internet nothing is live in the conventional sense but streamed either from a single or a series of websites the firestick is programmed to log on to. The website(s) will usually provide a mixture of "live" tv, catch up tv available for a limited time, archive material and special programming and some movies.
What you get will depend on what is available free and what needs to be paid for, your internet/wireless connection and how good you are at reading instructions and operating the remote, assuming the firestick is working correctly.
A friend had a problem with connected tv and it turned out some of the sites took a long, long time to load and he was impatient and assumed it wasn't working.
the "pat answer" is the magic smoke leaked out. all electronics work on magic smoke, once it gets out of a device, the device wont work anymore. OK smoke comes from burned out devices. Point the remote at a digital camera and watch through the view finder, does the led in the remote light up? (you cant see it with the human eye) if so next step. plug the dongle into the TV, select the correct input and point the remote directly at the window on the dongle and try to operate the fire stick, if it works, you may need an HDMI EXTENSION cable (male to female) to move the dongle to a position where it isn't blocked from the view of the remote. Also, can you operate it from your computer using Google Chrome and the correct firestick extension? (incase the remote isn't infrared operated)
