How to Fix Error Code 8056 Fire TV

You can reboot the Wi-Fi router if your Fire TV shows a poor Wi-Fi signal strength. Restarting your home network will enhance the internet connection speed on your device. Thus, allowing you to resume update and complete it. Moreover, you can also try placing your router and Fire TV near for an improved signal. 

You can unplug your router from the power source and wait up to 15 seconds. Then, plug it back and wait till it connects with your Fire TV. 

Change Your DNS Server Manually

If your device does not complete the update, there could be an issue on the DNS Server. Thus, you can change the DNS Server on your Fire TV to solve the error code 8506. It will also influence the faster downloading speed of any apps on your Fire TV.

You can reassign to any other DNS server. However, for your reference, we have mentioned the steps for Google DNS below.

  1. Navigate to Settings on your Fire TV
  2. Go to Network and choose your Wi-Fi Network

Clear App Cache and Data

If cache data becomes corrupt, it may have junk files that can lead to a system error. Thus, you might encounter glitches on the app when such files need to be cleared. You can clear the app cache and data on your Fire TV to solve the error updating the app or your system.

Follow the steps given below.

  1. Go to Settings from the Home screen of Firestick
  2. Navigate to Applications > Manage Installed Applications
    How to Fix Error Code 8056 Fire TV
  3. Highlight Prime Video and open it
  4. Choose Clear Data and Clear Cache Option 

Uninstall Debloat Tool on Fire TV

Debloat tools are extremely helpful to clear bloatware apps that take up too much space on your device. Also, you can use the tool to block system updates on your Fire TV. 

The recent update of Fire TV seemed to block the Fire TV launchers such as Wolf Launcher. Thus, you might have used the Debloat tool to bypass the update. The conflict between the tool and the device might cause an error in updating your app or system firmware.

So, you can disable the debloat tool on your Fire TV to solve the problem. It will unblock the software update URLs. 

Re-Register Firestick 

Since you can not uninstall the Prime Video on your Fire TV, you can re-register your Amazon account to unlink the Prime account. Also, you must make sure to log in to your account with Prime video subscriptions. 

Find out the steps given below. 

  1. Open Settings from your Home Screen 
  2. Go to Account and Profile Settings > Amazon Account 
    How to Fix Error Code 8056 Fire TV
  3. Highlight your Amazon account and choose Deregister
    How to Fix Error Code 8056 Fire TV
  4. Again, from the same page, select the Register option
  5. Enter the prompted login credentials correctly and choose Log In 

Check if Prime Video Server is Down 

Basically, you encounter the error when Prime Video does not respond on your Fire TV. If none of the fixes work, there can be chances of an internal server outage. So, you can try playing the Prime Video on your other devices to see if it works. If the issue persists, the server might be down. 

Factory Reset Fire TV

Performing a factory reset on Fire TV has also proven to solve the “error code 8506 on Fire TV.” We try our best to resolve the problem without a factory reset. However, it is the last resort if you still encounter the error even after trying all the fixes. Resetting the device to factory settings will delete all your information and downloads.  

You can reset using your remote or from the settings. You can follow the steps whichever are convenient for you. 

Using Remote

  1. On your Fire TV remote, press the Back and Right part of the navigation circle and hold for up to 10 seconds
  2. Then, select Continue (Your device will reset automatically in case you don’t select either option)

From Settings 

  1. Open Settings 
  2. Go to Device & Software > Reset to Factory Defaults
    How to Fix Error Code 8056 Fire TV
  3. Choose Reset and wait till the process completes

インタークーラーって何に効果があるのか?~カスタムHOW TO~

ターボ車などの過給器とセットで装着されるインタークーラーはどんな効果を持つのか。強化する意味はどんなところにあるのか。パワーチューンパーツなのか、冷却パーツなのか!? ◆圧縮された空気を冷やすのが役割 インタークーラーって何に効果があるのか?~カスタムHOW TO~ インタークーラーはターボ車やスーパーチャージャーなど、過給器にセットされるパーツ。ターボ車を例に取ると、排気ガスの圧力でタービンを回し、その力で吸入する空気を圧縮する。この圧縮した空気を燃焼室に押し込むので、排気量以上の酸素が入る。すると、酸素に合わせてたくさんガソリンを噴射することができて、力強い爆発を得られるというのがターボ車がパワーをたくさん出せる仕組み。 スーパーチャージャーはその空気を圧縮する力を、エンジン自体の回転からもらうのでちょっとだけ馬力ロスが大きいのと、回転数と過給圧が比例するので低回転は過給圧が低い。ある程度エンジンを回さないと効果が薄い。 ここで問題になるのが、この空気を圧縮するということ。強烈に圧縮すると空気は熱を持つ。そうするとせっかく圧縮したのに熱で膨張してしまって、エンジンにたくさんの酸素を送り込むことができなくなってしまうのだ。 そこでインタークーラーで圧縮したあとに冷やすことで、少しでも温度を下げて体積を小さくしたい。そうするとたくさんの酸素をエンジンに送り込むことができ、エンジンパワーを引き出すことができる。そこで生まれたのが圧縮空気を冷やすインタークーラーだ。 ◆圧縮された空気は200度近くにもなる!! 空気を圧縮したところでそんなに熱くならないでしょ、と言われそうだが、実はタービンで圧縮された空気は170度とか180度にもなる。インタークーラーで外気に当てるだけで温度が下がるわけである。ラジエーターで90~100度くらい。オイルクーラーで100~130度くらいなものなので、インタークーラーがもっとも高温になるのである。そして、インタークーラーでどれくらい冷えるかというと20~40度ほどが平均的。つまり170度の圧縮空気を140度くらいまで冷やしてエンジンに送り込んでいるのだ。 冷やして、といっても冷えていないような気もするが、それでもインタークーラーの性能に寄ってパワーやトルクは確実に左右されるのである。 ◆近年の流行は水冷式インタークーラー ハイパワーな輸入車では純正で水冷式インタークーラーの採用が増えている。エンジン冷却水でインタークーラーを冷やすというものが多い。「それで冷えるの?」と思われるが、先述のように圧縮された空気は200度近い温度になるので、100度くらいのクーラントなら十分に冷却する効果がある。また、空気よりも液体で冷却したほうが熱交換効率が圧倒的に良いので、インタークーラーを水冷化することで省スペースな熱交換器に置き換えることができる。そして、インタークーラーには風を当てなくては冷えない。水冷化すればラジエーターにだけ風を当てればい良いというのも大きなメリットなのだ。 ◆インタークーラーは後方のラジエーターのことも考慮が必要 インタークーラーを空気で冷やすには風を当てなければならない。エンジンパワーに直結する部分だけに、できるだけ冷たい空気を当てたい。そうなるとラジエーターの前に置く、前置きレイアウトを採用することになる。となると問題はラジエーターだ。 ラジエーターにはインタークーラーで熱せられた空気しか当たらない。しかも、その勢いは弱くなっていてラジエーターを抜けにくくなっており、ラジエーターが冷えなくなってしまう。 そこでインタークーラーのフィンのピッチ(間隔)を広く設計すれば、ラジエーターまで走行風が流れやすくなる。しかし、今度はインタークーラーの冷却効率が落ちてしまうというスパイラルなのだ。スバルでは多くの場合、エンジンの上にインタークーラーを設置。ラジエーターと関わらない場所にインタークーラーを置くことを選んでいる。これはラジエーターには効率的だが、走行風が当てにくい、大型のインタークーラーは装着できないというデメリットもある。 そこで水冷式という選択肢が増えてきた。水冷式はクーラントで圧縮空気を冷やすので、走行風はラジエーターにだけ当てれば良い。冷却系の設計がシンプルにできるし、空力的にも有利。いろいろなところから空気を入れて排出すると、空力的な乱れも起きやすい。シンプルに設計できれば、ダウンフォースを出して、抵抗を減らす設計もしやすい。そういったメリットから、近年のハイパフォーマンスカーでは水冷式インタークーラーが増えているのだ。 インタークーラーをアフター品の大型のものに交換すれば、吸気温度を下げることができる。そうなるとECU側ではもっと燃料を噴いて、点火時期を理想的にしてということになり、結果としてエンジンパワーを向上させることができる。 逆に言えば、吸気温度が高いとエンジンがノッキングで壊れないように、どんどんパワーはセーブする方向にECUが自動的に制御していく。そういったパワーダウンにつながる原因を防ぐのがインタークーラーの役割でもある。 Read more »
