My fire stick is connected directly to tv on HDMI port. I only get” no commands” on screen and nothing else. Any ideas?

I have just hooked up the firestick but cannot get anything to come on the screen . I tried to get it to pair but nothing would come up. I have tried all HDMI s and nothing works. I have unhooked the power, unhooked the HDMI cable and reconnected but nothing happens. I have changed batteries also. I do not see an indicator light when I press power so I have done it several times thinking that may be the problems.
Any suggestions will be welcomed.
