How to Reset Firestick and Fire TV
This article will help you learn how to reset Firestick and basically make your device to work like new again. You can use the same process outlined here to spruce up any model and this goes for your Fire TV Cube as well.The Amazon Firestick is one of the most used streaming devices around and that’s mainly because it entered the market at an insanely low market price. The only downside to this is that Amazon had to cut costs somewhere which is why this device only comes with 8 GB internal storage which is never enough for most users.But, once your Firestick fills up, you can reset it to wipe its memory clean so you can enjoy it like it was when it was new. This reset process is super easy and takes only a few minutes to reset both your Fire TV and Firestick.
Guide to Resetting Your Firestick
1. Go to the “Settings” menu of your Firestick/Fire TV device
2. Click on the “My Fire TV” icon
3. Choose the “Reset to Factory Settings” option
4. Click on “Reset”
5. Give the system a few seconds to do its thing
6. At this point, your Firestick/Fire TV will begin to automatically reboot after which it will show you a screen that says, “Resetting your Fire TV stick.”
7. Next, you’ll see a prompt telling you to connect a Wi-Fi network. Once that’s done, the Amazon sign-up screen will show up and you’re good to go!
Reset Firestick without Settings
It’s not uncommon for a Firestick/Fire TV device to freeze up while you’re trying to access the “settings” page. This often happens when the device is running on a full memory. The good news is you can fix this issue within minutes by starting a Factory Reset on the device. You can do this by long pressing the Ring and Back buttons at the same time for at least 10 seconds.
How to Do It without Wi-Fi or Remote
Based on the methods we shared above, you need Wi-Fi in order to access your remote. This isn’t always possible because your TV may not support CEC, maybe you’ve forgotten your remote for some reason, or maybe your app operates through a different Wi-Fi connection. If you experience this problem while trying to reset Firestick, then you’ll have to somewhat trick the Fire TV Stick into thinking that you’re trying to reach it from the old Wi-Fi network. To achieve this, you’ll need to use your phone to create a hotspot connection or change your router’s username and password to match your old Wi-Fi connection. This is the fastest way to connect your mobile with your Fire TV Stick so that you can access the Fire TV app from your phone. That way, you can control your Firestick reset and other settings straight from the app.
