Televison & Video - Page 8 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


A little more info may be needed. Does your TV say this as soon as you plug in your firestick or does it say this when you are trying to play a video? If the first hold down rewind "<<" while holding top circle of remote (outer ring) for 15 seconds. It is likely that your TV resolution is out of spec for the Firestick (4k?) and you will need to enable "legacy" (older) resolution mode on the Firestick. If this does not work, there are you You Tube videos on enabling this mode for your Firestick. If the second, then you are trying to play a video with an unsupported video Codec, in which case you would need to find a supported video.

Most soundbars have channels for USB, Optical, 1.5mm headphone and Bluetooth. 1st, I would make sure you are on correct input. Secondly, on some TV's you have to enable external output as well in settings.

Typically bad inverter board for backlight. I would google "backlight inverter" and your brand for a You Tube video if you are tech savvy. You could try the oven trick (put the board in the oven on a sheet covered with tin foil, (10 minutes at 385 degrees and let cool) but it will smell horrible. This has "fixed" the loose solder on several boards for me in the past.

Have you tried plugging the Firestick into HDMI 1? The Firestick has its own volume control on the remote... is that turned up? You can also press the up button (above the OK) in certain apps to increase volume. If that fails I would check sound settings in the firestick and select "passthrough", "bitstream" or "PCM" to see if it allows sound to your TV. Are you using the HDMI dongle with your Firestick? If so, you may want to plug in in without the dongle as sometimes these have issues.

Most likely you need to update either Play store or Play services. If you open the play store app on your TV and select "my apps" look for the updates and see if there is an update available.

Probably the blinking green light is telling you that the power supply is defective

*won't

Disconnect from power for 5 minutes, plug in, press and hold the On button on the television.

If that doesn't work, you need a technician.

On TV remote press Mode button or TV button. Then select HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 depending on where the cable is inserted in the TV. Now press the SET button & enter the code. Try the following codes:
0019 0618 0644 0056 0060 0587 0037 0178 0030 0556 0009 0702
0774 0093 0217 0448 0747 0482 0370 0264 0329 0090 0032 0216
0290 0154 0150 0092 0072 0179 0208 0519 0156 0163 0625 0226
0812 0817 0821 1060..
If the above codes don't work contact TV manufacturer for the code.

Without more details there is only a couple of conclusions - maybe the set top box you have is faulty or incompatible in some way with either the tv or the antenna.

Incompatibility with the tv seems unlikely as presumably the on-screen menus generated by the box are displayed satisfactorily - allowing you to select a menu, scroll and select an item and then view the channel seeking process. If this is so it suggests the connection between the box and tv is good.

That rather suggests the box is faulty or the antenna is faulty or incompatible.
