How To Fix When Firestick Keeps Closing Apps?
To solve this problem, you’ll need to follow a step-by-step process. Let’s get started!
Solution #1: Test A Different App!
Start by testing different apps to determine if the problem is with your Firestick or specific apps. Open multiple apps and see if the issue occurs with more than one app. If multiple apps are causing the problem, proceed to the next solution.
(Note: Ensure that the apps you test are not from the same publisher. Check the publisher under Settings > Apps > Info.)
Solution #2: Power Cycle The Firestick
Perform a power cycle on your Firestick. Disconnect the device from your TV’s power supply for at least 5 minutes. Then reconnect it and turn on your TV. This will refresh all services and hopefully resolve the issue.
Solution #3: Relog From Amazon Account
If the issue persists, try relogging from your Amazon account. Go to the settings of your Firestick, navigate to “My Account,” and deregister from your Amazon account. Then log back in with your credentials.
Solution #4: Clear App Cache On Firestick
If the problem continues, clear the app cache on your Firestick. Go to the settings, select “Applications,” then “Manage Installed Applications.” Choose an app and clear its cache and data. Repeat this process for each installed app.
Solution #5: Disconnect External Devices
External devices connected to your Firestick, such as Bluetooth headphones or sound systems, may be causing software issues. Disconnect all external devices and check if the problem persists.
Solution #6: Update Firestick Software
Make sure your Firestick has the latest software version. Go to the settings, select “My Fire TV,” then “Device Options,” and choose “Check for Updates.” If an update is available, install it.
Solution #7: Clear Additional Storage
If your Firestick’s storage is full, it can cause various problems. Free up some storage by uninstalling unused apps. Make sure to have at least a gigabyte or two of free space.
Solution #8: Reinstall Applications
If you’re still experiencing issues with specific apps, try reinstalling them. Uninstall the app from the settings, then reinstall it from the Firestick’s app store.
Solution #9: Reset The Firestick
If none of the above solutions work, you can try resetting your Firestick. This will erase all apps and settings, so make sure to back up any important data. To reset, go to the settings, select “My Fire TV,” scroll down, and choose “Reset to Factory Defaults.”
In conclusion, to fix the issue of your Firestick kicking you out of apps, try power cycling the device, relogging from your Amazon account, clearing app cache/data, freeing up storage space, reinstalling apps, and if all else fails, resetting the Firestick.
