How Can I Connect Fire Stick To My RV TV?

Your fire stick’s USB port and the power wire should be connected. The power adapter should then be connected to the other end and plugged into a wall outlet or power strip. You can try attaching the power cord instead if your TV has a USB port.

The majority of TV USB connectors, however, lack sufficient power to operate the firestick. Simply plugging it into a power socket is preferable.

Plug the firestick’s HDMI connector into an open HDMI port on your TV.

Step 3: Put batteries in your firestick remote

Determine which plugs your TV has first. The majority of older televisions should have components or composite (three ports: yellow, red, and white) (five ports: green, blue, red, and white). You will then need to purchase either an HDMI-to-component or an HDMI-to-composite converter.
