If you’re looking to reset your Fire TV Cube, you’re in the right place. Whether you’re planning to sell or trade in your device or you’re simply experiencing issues with its performance, resetting your Fire Cube can help improve its functionality. In this guide, we’ll show you step-by-step how to reset your Fire Cube, with and without a remote.

To begin, navigate to the settings tab on your Fire Cube. From there, scroll down to “My Fire TV” and click on “Reset to Factory Default.” You’ll be prompted to input your pin, so be sure to have that on hand.

If you’re using the remote, now is the time to cancel out of the prompt. However, if you don’t have the remote, don’t worry! You can still reset your Fire Cube. Simply hold down the two buttons on the device for 45 seconds. After that time, you should see a prompt on the screen to reset your device to factory default.

Once you see the prompt, the device will automatically finish the reset process when the timer runs out. It will also click “OK” automatically, so you don’t need to worry about navigating with the remote.

With your Fire Cube now reset to factory default, you can choose to give it away, set it up in a different location, or trade it in for a new model.
