Step 1: Remove the Batteries
The first step is to remove the batteries from your Firestick remote. This will ensure that there is no power running through the device and allow for a clean reset.
Step 2: Unplug Your Firestick Device
Next, unplug your Firestick device from the power source. This will also help to ensure a clean reset and allow for a fresh connection between the remote and the device.
Step 3: Wait for 30 Seconds
Wait for at least 30 seconds to allow for any residual power to dissipate. This will help to ensure a clean reset and a fresh connection when you resync your remote.
Step 4: Insert the Batteries
Insert the batteries back into your Firestick remote. Make sure they are inserted correctly, with the positive and negative ends in the correct position.
Step 5: Press and Hold the Home Button
Press and hold the Home button on your Firestick remote for at least 10 seconds. This will initiate the resync process and allow the remote to connect to your Firestick device.
Step 6: Pair Your Remote
Once the resync process has started, your Firestick device will automatically search for and pair with your remote. This process can take up to a minute, so be patient and wait for the process to complete.
Step 7: Test Your Remote
Once the pairing process is complete, test your Firestick remote to ensure it is working properly. If it is still not responding or connecting to your device, repeat the above steps to resync your remote.
