Hi,
What's the best price atm for the Firestick?
4k HD is £29.99 on Amazon.co.uk & £39.99 for the standard.
Is is worth the extra for the 4k HD & is that dependent on your tv?
Thanks,
Pa.

Yes 4K one is worth the extra even if you don't have a 4K tv. It is faster, smoother & will be supported longer than the older non 4K

Sorry, that should have been £49.99 for the HD version.
Does this price drop often or are there any discount codes or elsewhere that I can buy it from cheaper please?

In the last month it has dropped twice. The second time there was an extra discount that gave another £5 off also.

Firestick is stuck on firetv logo.
Anyone any ideas how to fix it?
Unplugged it, tried a different power lead, tried it without the hdmi extension.

Other common solutions:
  • Temporarily disconnect the Fire TV device from the power cord or adapter.
  • Use the power cord or adapter included with your device to plug the Fire TV device. This ensures Fire TV has access to enough power.
  • Let the device sit for 25 min (turned on) or until the screen changes.
  • If possible try with and without an HDMI adapter or extender.
  • Make sure that you're using a high-speed HDMI cable.
  • Try using a different HDMI port.
  • For HDMI hubs, try plugging the Fire TV device directly into the TV.
  • Confirm that your TV is HDCP-compliant. Review the video-cable section of the TV owner's manual.
  • If possible try using a different TV.
If the issue persists, reset your Fire TV device to factory settings.
For more help, try our Amazon Fire TV forum.

Reset Fire TV Device to Factory Settings

A factory reset of your device removes all downloaded content including in-app purchases.
Important: All account information and downloaded content is deleted during a factory reset.

To factory reset your Fire TV device using your remote:

If needed, safely eject expandable storage.
Press and hold Back and right side of the navigation circle together for 10 seconds.
On the TV screen, choose to continue or cancel the factory reset. If you don't choose, the device resets automatically after several more seconds.

Not a bargain in my opinion. You would have got the 4K version for less.

That would have been the 4K version. He wanted it quickly & \Amazon are full price right now 49.99 Sterling plus 4 euro parcel motel. He got it same day from Currys & saved money. I've gotten firesticks for 25 or 30 but you have to buy at the right time.

Mine did that too.

As long as it's less than 12 months old, get onto Amazon customer care via chat, and they'll send out a replacement.

Curry's are closed now afaik, so you'll have to get it delivered from them too.

Mine was working fine like that for months but recently started rebooting itself.
Plugging into the mains for power looks to have fixed it
