Firestick: How to Turn HDR On/Off

Many versions of the Amazon Firestick support HDR (High dynamic range). The feature can enhance the colors of what you watch on your TV. Depending on the channel or TV you use, HDR can really make your TV viewing a better experience, or worse. It can sometimes make the colors more brilliant, or it can make the colors not look right.

  1. Press the Home button on the remote to get the Home screen.
  2. Navigate over to Settings⚙️ then press the Center/Select button to access the settings.
  3. Choose Display & Sounds.
