I just purchased a Streaming Stick + with the intention of using it for Disney+ streaming. However, the device will not run consistently. After powering on, it seems to work alright for a brief time... But then i start getting display artifacts and choppiness while scrolling through app lists or programs within apps. After that, it eventually freezes completely and restarts itself after being unresponsive for a minute.
I've tried this on two different TVs, with the power plugged into the TV or the AC adapter, and at 1080p, 4k@30hz, and 4k@60hz. I've tried a hard reset on the device also. I just can't seem to get it to function well.
Do i just have a bad unit or is this device always this finicky? Thinking i should have gone with a fire stick.. Will be returning if i can't get this sorted out.
Re: Streaming Stick+ freezes and reboots constantly
This is the exact same product I have. Used it for a year and a half. Woke up this morning and it is stuck on the start up screen playing that same stupid sound. Looks like there’s no support for this anymore… I think this is the way they’re forcing people to buy newer product just like apple does.
