Are you having trouble operating your Fire TV Stick? Is it not behaving as expected?
In this tutorial, I’ll be guiding you through the process of starting your Fire TV Stick in safe mode so that you can troubleshoot any issues. Safe mode is a great way to start fresh and make sure everything on the device is running optimally, so read along for detailed instructions.
What is Fire TV Stick Safe Mode?
Safe mode on the Fire TV Stick is a diagnostic mode used to diagnose and troubleshoot any software issues or hardware problems. It is designed to help you identify what may be causing your device to malfunction, such as an app that has been installed incorrectly or incompatible settings.
When in safe mode, all third-party apps are disabled and only the device’s core features are accessible. This will allow you to make changes or reset your Fire TV Stick without any interference from apps & settings that may have caused an issue.
How to Enable Safe Mode on Fire TV Stick?
It’s easy to enable safe mode on the Fire TV Stick. Follow the simple steps below.
Android OTG Cable
To begin you will need an Android OTG cable connected to your Fire TV Stick to add a USB port connection.
Power on your Fire TV Stick and press & hold Ctrl, Alt, Menu, I, Print Screen keys.

Tips for Troubleshooting with the Fire TV Stick in Safe Mode
If you’re having trouble with your Fire TV Stick, try removing any applications that could be causing the issue. A simple restart of the device can also help to potentially resolve issues but if all else fails, a factory reset may be in order.
Be sure to back up any data or settings that are important to you before doing a factory reset as this will wipe all user data from the device.

I would recommend performing a factory reset instead of using the safe mode on your Fire TV Stick if you are having any major issues. This will restore the device to its factory settings and should help eliminate any software bugs.
If your device continues to experience issues after attempting a factory reset, you may want to consider contacting Amazon customer support for more assistance.
