Video Troubleshooting (Black screen, blue screen, TV shutting off & more)

How to Troubleshoot:

When I enter KODI it just sits on a black screen.

Click KODI button on your remote to return to the Android home screen. Go into StreamSmart Tools and do a speed test to make sure you are getting good speeds, if you are getting around 1mg that is causing the black screen and you will need to follow the steps in this FAQ to improve your speed. If you are getting 10mg or more on the speed test and still are getting the black screen clear data in StreamSmart Tools and wait a minute then try Kodi again.

When I turn my box on I only have a blue screen.
This means that either the HDMI cord and or the power cord are not sitting properly in the port.  Check the plugs on both the back of your box and your TV.  Unplug them and Press the plug securely into the slot and your video should appear.

My TV keeps shutting off.
First make sure you are using the original HDMI that came with your StreamSmart. If you are and still have this issue then disable CEC in TV HDMI settings (on your TV).

What does "no stream available" mean?
It means exactly what it says, that stream is not available on that link. Try another link.
If it’s a new movie it can be that no links has a stream available and only the trailer is available for viewing

My unit will not boot up, what do I do?
Hard pin reset:
Unplug box, stick a pin or paperclip in the small whole on right hand side,  plug box in and hold in for 8 - 10 seconds, release pin, choose “wipe-data factory reset”, when this is done choose reboot

I have a 4K TV and my StreamSmart will not display any video
Hook it up to a non 4K TV to change the following.
On the main android screen keep scrolling right and go into HDMI output and turn off HDMI auto detection. Change the HZ to what matches your 4K TV. Now it will work on that 4K TV

The Video and Sound seem to be out of Sync Sometimes
Sometimes a small number streams have sync issues. If this occurs you can either select another stream or you can adjust the audio to sync with the video by pushing okay, scroll right to the audio and adjust the sync.
ou can also push A on the keyboard remote or the Audio button on your standard remote.

My screen is sideways
