Fixing a malfunctioning Firestick remote when it’s not operating properly
Attempt to replace the batteries.
It might appear to be too easy to be effective, but hear us out. Even if it’s not very big, the power consumption of your Firestick is significant everytime you use it. And when added together over the course of a year, that totals quite a bit.
To get to the batteries on the back of your Firestick remote so you may remove and replace them with new ones, you will need to remove the battery cover. Two AAA batteries are required for the majority of Firestick remotes.
Take away all of the obstacles.
Even though the remote control for your Firestick is wireless, it still needs space in order to connect to the Firestick. Check to see that nothing, such as a game console or a stack of books, is getting in the way of your remote control or Firestick. Additionally, relocate any adjacent gadgets that emit radio signals, such as Wi-Fi routers or even microwaves.
Remove the pairing and then reattach the remote.
If the batteries aren’t the problem and you have a clear line of sight, it’s possible that the connection between the remote and the Firestick needs to be updated. It’s possible that removing the remote from the Firestick and then re-pairing it will solve the problem.
Reset the remote control.
You could try resetting the remote control if removing the pairing didn’t work. This not only reestablishes the connection, but it also causes the remote’s software and hardware to undergo a complete reset.
