How to Connect New Firestick Remote Without Old One (2022)


I’ve had a Firestick for a while and like how simple it is to use and the added connection it provides. I misplaced my Fire Stick Remote while traveling a few weeks back and was disappointed to learn that I’d have to buy a new one.

However, after considerable investigation, I discovered several inventive and adaptable replacement alternatives for my misplaced Fire Stick control. The new Fire Stick remote must be paired first, and then the old remote should be removed from the device list to use it.

You may use the connected TV remote control or the Fire Stick App on your Fire Stick to accomplish this.

How to Use the Official Amazon Fire TV Remote App to Pair the New Remote

Suppose you wish to use the FireStick with the replacement remote but do not have access to the settings that allow you to connect a controller. In that case, you may link the replacement remote with the FireStick via the Amazon Fire TV Remote App.

To use the app to add a new remote, launch the app and choose the ‘Controllers and Bluetooth Devices’ option from the drop-down menu.

Select ‘Amazon Fire TV Remotes’ from the drop-down menu that appears, and then click on the ‘Add New Remote’ button.

Select the remote with which you wish to connect it, and you should be set to start your next binge-watching marathon.

To pair them together, follow these instructions:

  • To access the Settings menu on your Fire TV, go to Settings > Settings.
