Reset your Amazon FireTV
The following tutorial will teach you different reset methods for your Amazon FireTV. Underneath the nice minimalist black box of your FireTV there is a rather complex computer, running the Android operative system, as you already know.
When your FireTV interacts with the different apps and games you may have installed, there is always the chance for some bug to emerge as a resource hog, memory leak, and /or a plethora of misbehaving software blues.
In consecuence, you may notice that your FireTV is slowing down, having hiccups, playing funny, or directly freezing on you. Just as it actually happens with any computer.
So, instead of blaming your FireTV on instability issues, I recommend you to learn how to reset it, either simply as unplugging it from its power source, or a more complicated (but still, easy enough) ritual of hard resetting it into factory default mode.
Reset your Amazon FireTV by recycling the OS
But then again, you may be lazy enough not to want to perform such an action.
If I am comfortably lying on my bed, I would prefer to press some kind of buttons combination on my remote control in order to reset Android on my fireTV.
No worries there, just press SELECT and PLAY buttons for 10 seconds and power shall be recycled on your FireTV.
If this does not work, maybe you will have to get up, after all, and physically recycle power by unplugging the power adapter!
Hard Reset your Amazon FireTV into factory default by remote control
All personal configuration, installed apps, games, passwords, etc. gone! but then, a hard reset will almost guarantee to recover into life your fireTV from non-working state.
You need to press RIGHT and BACK buttons for 10 seconds to initiate the Factory default reset.
Hard reset your FireTV from the settings menu
If your fireTV is still in working condition and you want to hard reset Android only to gain space, or even before reselling it, you may just invoke the Factory reset option from the Settings menu.
