Firestick remote not responding

  • Dead batteries and wrong terminals entry

Firesticks are created with unique knowledge to provide quality streams. However, they use batteries for control. There are no rechargeable batteries for the device. Batteries are the main cause of remote not responding. Due to the constant usage, Firestick batteries tend to drain batteries fast. It’s dangerous to use the batteries as they burst and deposit residues on the connectors. 

The user should buy extra batteries to avoid inconveniences while streaming. In most cases, Firestick batteries last for two weeks. Alexa voice control is one of the reasons why the batteries drain quickly. Ensure to get the best brands for a longer lifespan. 

Wrong terminals are another challenge causing the remote not to respond. The batteries are indicated with positive (+) and negative (-) signs. The user should slide the batteries in the correct direction for the remote to work. If the batteries are new and not working, the possibility is that the terminals are entered in the wrong way.

Remote pairing 

A new Firestick remote is automatically pre-paired with the Firestick gadget. If not, the user can manually pair the remote. Pairing is a major issue causing remote not working, to pair following steps below.

  • First, plug in your Firestick device on your TV using the HDMI port.
  • Next, power the devices to continue.
  • Once the Firestick opens, press the home button on the remote for 10 seconds.
  • The gadgets will pair, and you’re good to go.
  • Suppose the process doesn’t work; hold down the home button again for 10-20 seconds. You can repeat the process several times until the devices pair.

Note Firesticks are designed to allow seven (7) Bluetooth devices. The remote control also is Bluetooth enabled.  In case you have pair other devices, disconnect one to allow for the remote controller.
