What does a Firestick from Amazon do for my LG TV?
Amazon has made a device that streams media and is about the size of a thumb drive. It looks like a slightly bigger USB stick that you may have used to save files or music, and it’s easy to plug into the back of your TV.
The Firestick is not the first streaming device of its kind, but it is quickly becoming one of the most popular ones. With this small device, you can turn your TV into a full entertainment system with apps like HBO Max, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and hundreds of others. Amazon Firestick
It comes with a fully stocked app store, so you can use all of your favorite Android apps on your LG TV, which you couldn’t do before because LG doesn’t run on an Android system.
Overall, even if your LG TV is already a smart TV, the tiny Firestick will give you a lot more entertainment options and pack a lot more of a punch.
Setting up Firestick on an LG Smart TV
The installation procedure isn’t difficult and shouldn’t take too long. Having said that, it might not be as simple as turning on your TV and visiting its app store. It might require some research and minor adjustments along the way.
Connecting the Device Physically
The LG smart TV and the power source should be physically connected to your Firestick before anything else. There are two connectors on the Firestick device: a micro-USB port and an HDMI port. The power supply is connected to the micro-USB port.
Take the included cable and insert the micro-USB end into the Firestick and the accompanying power adapter at the other end. After that, insert the adaptor into the chosen power outlet. Your Firestick should now be operating after doing this.
Connect the Firestick to the HDMI port on the TV. Make sure you keep track of which HDMI port you’ve connected it to.
The Online Side
It’s time to move on to the software side now that the two machines are physically connected. It’s not particularly difficult, so don’t be concerned. All you have to do is switch on the TV, and pick the appropriate HDMI port using the input button in the upper right corner of your LG smart TV remote. The Firestick logo should then appear on your TV screen. It might take a while for the page to load.
While the Firestick loading screen is shown, neither of the two gadgets should be turned. Due to the fact that it is booting up for the first time, the Firestick may take some time to load.
The Firestick Control
You will use the Firestick’s own remote to control it instead of the LG remote that came with the TV. The Firestick box should come with a set of AAA batteries. Find them and put them in place. Open the back of the remote and put the batteries that came with it inside. After you do this, the remote should automatically connect to the Firestick device.
If this doesn’t work, press and hold the Home button on the remote for about 10 seconds. Be patient, because you might have to hold it for a little longer. This will connect the remote to the Fire Stick.
Once your Firestick is ready, you can start setting it up by pressing the Play/Pause button. First, you’ll be asked to choose the language you want to use. Use the remote’s arrow keys to find the language you want, then press the Select/OK button to set it.
The Firestick should now begin looking for Wi-Fi networks. When your network shows up on the screen, choose it and, if asked, enter your login information. Your Firestick should now be connected to the internet and working perfectly.
The Signing Up
As we’ve already said, if you order your Firestick through an existing Amazon account, it will already be set up when it arrives. If you didn’t order the device using your Amazon account, don’t have one, or want to sign in with a different one, just follow the on-screen instructions to register or de-register the Firestick.
If your Firestick wasn’t already registered, you’ll see a window with two options: “I already have an Amazon account” and “I am new to Amazon.” Choose the right option and do what it says on the screen. When you’re done, your Firestick will begin the process of registering. Don’t be surprised if it takes longer than a few seconds to do this.
