I've had an Amazon Fire TV Stick connected to my Mitsubishi DLP for a while. Now suddenly when I try to play content from Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc., I get only sound but the screen displays a DHCP Error.

I called Amazon and was told that a DHCP update in recent days left some older TVs, including Mitsubishi DLPs, behind. They recommended that I get a new TV.

Nonsense?

Tell them to ensure that the TV stick works as advertised. THEY made the change, not Mitsubishi.


I smell a lawsuit...

I'd be insisting they refund the purchase price. They sold you their device that worked fine, then made it useless to you with THEIR update.
Nonsense indeed.

Yes, "Nonsense". All of the device updates should be backward compatible.

Yep. Unplugging everything (including the TV) and restarting did the trick. However as it turns out it really may have been a problem with the TV. I didn't realize at the time, but I was getting sound only (no video) from my cable box on another HDMI input. Restarting everything restored video on both the cable and the Fire TV Stick.
