Fire TV / Firestick Screen Stuck Zoomed In

Amazon Fire TV and Firestick users may find themselves stuck with a screen that is zoomed in and too big to enjoy using it. A yellow box may also appear at the upper-right corner of the screen. This confuses people who just ended up on this screen. ow did this happen? How can I get out of it?

What is likely being experienced is you have accidentally enabled the screen magnifier feature. It is intended to be used for the vision impaired. It’s often enabled accidentally when the “Back” and “Fast Forward” buttons are simultaneously pressed for a few seconds.

To disable the screen magnifier, you can simply press and hold the “Back” and “Fast Forward” buttons again until the screen appears normal.
