Firestick random restarts

Post by lvsbooks » Sun Jan 19, 2020 11:23 am

I've been using this firestick since may 2019. It has started restarting in the beginig of Janurary. I hadn't added any new apps to it. I reset it a week ago it only helped a little. Has anybody else had this issue? With the reset HDHomerun is the only app i installed on it.

I was getting lockup/restarts quite often on my firesticks, when in HDHR, but since the last couple of updates/betas, that seems to have calmed down. Behaving somewhat faster also (relatively, but still very slow compared to the shield).

For me this is very recent. It will restart when I turn on the tv or when Im in HDHomerun.

Try shutting down the firestick and then removing power from the stick. It seemed to work better doing that after it bombed out and I did that.
