How to Plug Firestick Into a Projector?
Now that we’re aware of the possibility of plugging your Amazon Fire Stick, let us now go through the process of plugging it or using it with your projector.
Here’s the simple and easy process of how you can do it.
Step #1: Locate the HDMI Port on the Projector
First things first, find the HDMI port on your projector. Most projectors have it on the back, so try that out first.
If you can’t find it at the back of the projector, check the top and the sides of the projector.
Step #2: Plug the Firestick Into the Projector
Once found, plug the Amazon Firestick into the projector. Make sure that you plug it in tightly and securely, to avoid any problems with the video.
Refrain from forcing the Firestick into the HDMI port of your projector. If it doesn’t go in, take it out and re-examine the port if you’re plugging it correctly.
NOTE: Double-check the position of the HDMI port first.
Step #3: Plug the Firestick Into Power
Lastly, connect the Firestick to power. If your projector is placed anywhere near a wall socket or a wall outlet, you can use the power adapter.
But if your projector is far from an outlet and if it has an available USB port, you can use that as the power source of your Firestick.
That’s it! That’s how easy it is to use your projector as the vessel or the device for your Amazon Firestick!
Separating the Audio to an External Sound System
While most projectors, Home Theater style or not, have their own sound or speaker systems, it might not be enough to give you the feeling of enjoyment you’re looking for from your setup.
To do this, you have two (2) options, use the audio jack (sound out) port or a coaxial cable going to your sound system.
All you need are compatible wiring to connect and link your projector to your sound system, and you’ll be all good!
NOTE: Should your speakers be Bluetooth-enabled, check if your projector has Bluetooth capabilities.
If it does, you can connect it wirelessly to the external sound system to achieve better and much more emphasizing audio.
