I have just picked one of these up today from schpock new in the box never opened.For some reason it just wont get past the update screen.Unable to upgrade your fire tv stick is what its saying.I can see its connected to my router in the device list.i am reading a tutorial about pulling the network cable out when the fire stick connects to the network and just before it says checking for updates,so i can get to the login screen but im having no luck with pulling the power out the router.Anyone got any suggestions to try.

Press and hold right and the back button on the remote for 10 seconds. This should factory reset the FireStick.

Worth a try.

Also, if the person who originally bought it got it from Amazon it gets registered to their account. If they then got a refund from Amazon and didn't send it back.....thus ripping off Amazon, the device then gets blocked by Amazon.

I had a mate who this happened to and so he lost his money. Had to buy another FireStick. It seemed the original buyer must have returned an empty box to Amazon or somehow got Amazon to agree they didn't need to send it back and still got a refund.

You can contact Amazon and give them the serial number from the stick and they can check for you.

reported lost in post,i think they would of sorted it though,they wanted to ring me but im not going through all the hassle of reporting where i got it from as i only paid 10 for it.You win some you lose some.On the plus side i have a spare remote and charger and learned dont buy firesticks what have not been used from council estates.:emoji_(y):
