If you have been searching online for Amazon’s own user guide manual for the Fire TV Stick, you came to the right place. The overwhelming trend for most electronic manufacturers are shipping their products without a manual. Instead, they include a quick setup guide on how to connect your device to get started then provide a link to the full instruction manual which will be available online. Amazon has their Fire TV stick user guide online which you may download or view online anytime.
It is a pdf file so you will need an app / software that allows you to view Adobe Acrobat files. It has the following table of contents.

My openbox was working great I then connected my Amazon Fire used it for 1 day then put my openbox back on – nothing it just would not work, don’t know why.
I have constant issues with watching and actually starting a program. It does what I call digitizing(breaking up picture and freezing but sound sometimes continues.) Very frustrating, as I will have to stop and let if buffer, and continuosly do this throughout the show. Mostly happens on series shows. What can I do? And what can I do to set me TV for 720 p? Thanks
There is no “manual,” just a lot of bad xml. So very, very typical of Amazon.
I hit mike on fire stick remote and ask “launch netflix” and i get do not understand. how do i use voice command ? i am in bedroom and alexa is in living room. do i need echo dot in bedroom?
Do you have a TV in your bedroom? If so, you need the fire tv stick in your bedroom. Otherwise, the remote will not work that far away in your device with alexa in your living room.
I bought a Amazon Fire tv for my husband only to find out we can’t watch anything unless we pay for it. No history channel nothing we were getting on dish is free? That is not what was advertised.
Certain apps will provided added content if you sign in with your cable or satellite account. Do you have a Dish account? Have you tried to download History channel app? http://amzn.to/2CybqUz
My Amazon Fire Stick has not worked all day. I unplug it to reboot it still nothing. It is saying ” Home is Currently Unavailable” “check your Network Settings” then it says Network (Disconnected) which is incorrect also since my signal strength is Very Good. I press my network and it says Connecting but it doesn’t. I’m at a loss.
I installed Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice today and everything seems to be working OK, with the following exception. I don’t have subtitles. When I try to add them to a show that I am watching, I get ‘NO SUBTITLE SERVICES INSTALLED’. I need to know how to install subtitles. Can you help?
I installed my new fire tv stick with alexa and I am getting tv shows. I need help to install subtitles. Can you help?
Unfortunately, not all shows have subtitles. Have you had success with some shows and not others? If so, that is the reason. Or are all subtitles missing from all tv shows?
I would like to know how to command my FireStick to return from streaming to my regular tv (Direct Tv). Have tried several voice commands but not recognized.
