If you are a Firestick owner, you may have experienced problems with your remote. It can be frustrating when your remote stops working out of the blue. In this tutorial, we will show you how to fix your Firestick remote with ease.
Step 1: Check the Batteries
The first thing you should do when your Firestick remote stops working is to check the batteries. Sometimes, the remote may not work due to dead or low batteries. Replace the batteries and see if the remote starts working again.
Step 2: Restart Your Firestick
If your Firestick remote still doesn’t work after changing the batteries, try restarting your Firestick. Unplug the device from the power source and wait for a few minutes. Then, plug it back in and turn on your Firestick. Check if the remote starts working again.
Step 3: Pair Your Remote
If your Firestick remote still doesn’t work, you may need to pair it again. To do this, hold down the Home button on your remote for 10 seconds. This will initiate the pairing process. Once the pairing is complete, your remote should start working again.
Step 4: Reset Your Remote
If none of the above steps work, you may need to reset your Firestick remote. To do this, hold down the Back button and the Right button on your remote for 10 seconds. This will reset your remote to its default settings. Once the reset is complete, pair your remote again and check if it works.
Step 5: Get a Replacement
If your Firestick remote still doesn’t work, it may be time to get a replacement. Contact Amazon customer service and explain your issue. They will send you a replacement remote if your Firestick is still under warranty.
