I know there is certain key strokes to recover a locked stick. Is there a list of these tips.

The trouble is not the remote.
The stick is locked in a Pin mode.
Without the Pin number which I do not know, I can not get to the Restore to Factory option.
I did try the dual keys function to no avail.

How about this:
To carry out this method, make sure you have a remote.
Plug in the Fire Stick to the TV.
Press the Back and Right buttons simultaneously and hold them until the Reset screen appears.
Choose the Reset option.
Wait until the Factory Reset Firestick procedure is complete. Set up your Fire Stick to start using it.
Bottom answer is correct. There is more than one tip, though.
I am familiar with this procedure, and was successful on my son’s stick.
However, on my daughters I have not. The fur flew in this house when they
pulled this pin stunt to keep each other from using the sticks in different bedrooms.
I refused to purchase new devices for each of them. I think I am forced to replace hers.
Thank you for trying to help me.
