Hello, Please tell me exactly what you see on your TV screen when you try to view the Fire. Also is the Fire Stick or the box you have?
Please view my reply and postback to proceed.
Do you need assistance with this? If so, are you having problems replying?
The screen going black is not related to the remote at all, it's due to the TV losing signal from the Fire. I asked if you have the Fire "Stick" that plugs right into the TV, or do you have the "Box"- can you let me know that please so I can help?
The Stick sticks right into the TV, where the Box has a cable connecting it to the TV. Any ideas?
Yes, if you're selecting HDMI 2 and you have a small remote then there is indeed something plugged into the TV. You said you select HDMI 2 - so if nothing was plugging into the TV, then you would not select the HDMI 2 plug in? If you have no Firestick or box, then where did you get the remote from? This isn't lining up....
Or, if you're unsure what you have, then reply back to the following:
1) What's the model number off the back of the TV?
2) Look at the HDMI 2 port on the back of the TV- is anything plugged in there?
3) What "Small remote" are you referring to?
I'm not there to see what you have, so I'm asking you to be my eyes, and help me to help you. Are you able to get any of the info requested above?
