The Standard Pairing Method

  1. Hold the ‘Home’ button: Press and hold the ‘Home’ button on your Fire Stick remote (looks like a little house) for about 10 seconds. Make sure you’re close to your Fire TV Stick.
  2. Wait and watch: The remote should enter pairing mode, and you might see a message on your TV confirming the connection.

Pairing a Replacement Remote

  1. Settings: On your Fire Stick’s home screen, navigate to Settings (the gear icon).
  2. Controllers & Bluetooth Devices: Select this option.
  3. Amazon Fire TV Remotes: Choose this section.
  4. Add New Remote: You should see this option – select it.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • Fresh batteries: Make sure your Fire Stick remote has working batteries.
  • Distance Matters: Get the remote close to the Fire TV Stick during pairing.
  • Obstacles: Remove anything that might block the signal from the remote to the Stick.
  • Restart your Fire Stick: If all else fails, unplugging your Fire TV Stick for a few seconds and plugging it back in can sometimes help.

Still Nothing?
