The Amazon Firestick will automatically set the video resolution in most cases. It doesn’t always get things right though. The device has a setting where you can manually set the video resolution. In this post, we’ll show you two different ways.
In This Guide
Change Firestick Resolution in Settings
- Press the Home button to get to the Home screen.
- Select the Settings ⚙️ gear.
- Choose Display & Sounds > Video Resolution.
- Set the resolution to the desired setting. If prompted, select Confirm to confirm the selection. If the screen goes black or you do not see the option to confirm your select, it is likely that you chose a resolution setting that is not supported by your TV or the HDMI port the Firestick is plugged into on the TV. Try a different setting or a different HDMI input.
Change Firestick Resolution Using Remote Command
The Firestick allows you to manually change the resolution using a remote command. This is useful for when the resolution setting is not allowing you to properly view Firestick video.
Press and hold the Up and Rewind buttons on the remote for about 5 seconds.
The Firestick will start cycling through the available resolution settings. Once you see one that looks good, press the Center button on the remote to choose the selection.
I hope this article has helped you successfully set the video resolution on your Firestick and you are now able to enjoy watching your favorite program.
