I am sorry you are having trouble here,I am presently reviewing your question be with you very soon.

Main-board has gone bad, firmware controlling board corrupted probably by the stick, set is really too old to accommodate newer technology like that, you can get it back to normal by replacing the board however I do suggest you do not insert anything like firesticks into this set, if you wish to replace the mainboard let me know I will provide all relevant info

I am sorry it is nothing easier

A positive rating of 3 to 5 stars is welcome for the information provided so far,note the question will remain open for 30 days,the site will then release payment to me

Thanks again
