Fire TV Stick stuck on logo and wont boot

model (S3L46N) bought and registered 7 months ago will no longer boot and is stuck on the logo.

I have left plugged in for 48 hours, tried different TVs, tried to put into safe-mode with keyboard and am using the original charger.


The other problem is less severe, but noticeably affects the performance of the device. This is a freezing issue that is frustrating some users while navigating the interface.

Hello guys, i have a brand new Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

Constantly freezes no matter what I’m doing. I have a great wifi mesh system, updated. I ended up buying an adaper so could use ethernet directly. Tried absolutely everything, cleared cache and data and factory reset. I mainly use Plex from my Synology NAS.

So far I would say the device is absolute piece of garbage. I’ve looked at other forums and there are many thousands of the same reports. Does anyone have any idea please?

The freezing issues do not go away even after a factory reset, according to reports.

Other problems after the most recent update

There are other problems that started after the most recent update for the Fire TV Stick. These include cluttered UI, lag, loss of contact with the connected TV, false error messages, etc.
