Troubleshooting Tips for Resolving Other Fire TV Cube Common Issues.
Many different issues can be the case. For the most common ones, here are some tips to help you out.
If Your Fire TV Cube Is Stationary, Not Rotating, or Is Not Showing a Signal
This could be due to a problem with connection of power cables like the AC adapter or HDMI cable. Also, make sure the TV is powered on and the channel is set to the HDMI port which the Fire TV Cube is connected to.
If all that is in place and the power cord is working and the channel is set correctly, disconnect and reattach the power cord.
Lastly, it might be the adapter. If the adapter is connected but the light is turned off, then it is most likely faulty. You would have to replace it. You can find a new one here.
To Reboot Your Fire TV Cube
You can reboot your Fire TV Cube by following these steps:
- Holding down both the “Select” and “Play / Pause” buttons at the same time for at least five to ten seconds.
- Alternatively, other settings can be used.
- Select My Fire TV from the drop-down menu.
- In the Fire TV menu, select Refresh/Reboot.
Now, let’s look at if the voice instructions aren’t working.
If the Voice Instructions Aren’t Working
When this happens, Bluetooth devices or background sound settings may be disabled. Ensure that the Fire TV is a minimum of one foot away from the cubic speaker before turning it on.
Remove any other devices connected to Alexa from the room and speak to the device with as little background noise as possible. If this doesn’t seem to work, say “I can’t hear you”. Alexa will then route a response to Fire TV Cube instead of the TV or sound bar.
Is Your Fire TV Cube Remote Disconnected?
Examine the battery. Check to verify whether they are still working on other devices to ensure that they are functional or dead. If the batteries are dead, replace them with new ones by using a battery replacement guide found online.
Alternatively, follow these steps to reconnect the remote control:
- Press the home key for at least ten seconds. It takes about a minute to connect the remote control to the cube. Remove the AC adapter from the Fire TV if this doesn’t work.
- Reset the “home”, “backward” and “left” buttons on the remote control by closing the Fire TV cube for about 25 seconds each time.
- Remove the remote control battery and connect the cube. Make sure the home screen is on. Wait two minutes after inserting the battery into the remote control.
