YouTube video

Are you experiencing issues with your 4K Fire TV Stick when connecting it to a different TV or monitor? Do you encounter either a “no signal” message or see the Fire TV logo followed by a black screen? This is a common problem that occurs when the resolution set on your Fire TV stick is not supported by the new TV or monitor you’ve connected it to.

But worry not! There is a simple method to resolve this issue without any hassle. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of changing the resolution on your 4K Fire TV Stick using just two buttons on your remote control.

Step 1:

To begin, grab your remote control and locate the up button and the reverse button. The up button is usually positioned above the reverse button. Once you have identified these buttons, press and hold them both simultaneously for approximately 10 seconds.

Step 2:

If nothing happens immediately after holding the buttons, don’t worry. Leave the screen and the Fire TV stick for a few minutes. In the background, the Fire TV stick is cycling through various resolutions to find one that is compatible with your new TV or monitor.

Step 3:

After a couple of minutes, you should see a prompt on your screen displaying the current resolution of your Fire TV stick. It might show a resolution like “1080p 60 hertz.” The Fire TV stick will continue to cycle through different resolutions until it finds one that works.

Step 4:

Once you see the screen with the current resolution, select the option to “use current resolution.” To accept this resolution, press the confirm button on your remote control.

Step 5:

Although the picture on your screen might not be clear at this point, you can adjust it using the remote control. Press and hold the picture of the house on the remote, then navigate to the right until the “settings” option is highlighted. Press the middle button on the remote to select it.

Step 6:

Scroll down to “display and sound” and press the middle button again. From there, go to “display” and make sure that “video resolution” is selected.

Step 7:

In the video resolution settings, select the option for automatic resolution. This setting ensures that your Fire TV stick will adapt to the resolution of any TV you connect it to in the future. To choose automatic resolution, press the middle button on the remote control.

Step 8:

After selecting automatic resolution, your screen may go blank temporarily while the resolution change takes effect. You should then see a message confirming the resolution change. For example, it might say “You’ve changed the resolution from 720p 60hz to automatic.” To confirm this change, press the left button and then the middle button on your remote.

Step 9:

To return to the main menu, press the picture of the house on your remote control. And voila! Your 4K Fire TV stick is now successfully set to the appropriate resolution for your TV or monitor.

With the automatic resolution setting enabled, your Fire TV stick will automatically adjust its resolution each time you connect it to a different TV. This ensures a seamless viewing experience without any compatibility issues.

In conclusion, if you encounter problems with the resolution when using your 4K Fire TV stick on a new TV or monitor, this guide provides a simple solution. By following the step-by-step instructions, you can easily change the resolution using just two buttons on your remote control. Remember to select the automatic resolution option to allow your Fire TV stick to adapt to different TVs in the future.
