How to Unpair Firestick Remote? How to Pair Firestick Remote?

While relocating to a new home, I misplaced the remote control for my Fire Stick. At least for the time being, I didn’t have to purchase another Fire Stick since I was lent one by a buddy who had an extra remote.

Even though I tried, I couldn’t get it to operate with any of my own devices. After a few hours of tinkering, I decided to turn to the Internet for help. Fire Stick Remotes had a plethora of useful and useless information and videos, and sorting through them took longer than I thought.

Because of this, I decided to compile what I learned into a handy resource I can refer to in the future: a how-to guide for unpairing your Fire Stick remote.

If you only have one Fire Stick Remote, you may unpair it by disconnecting the Fire Stick and re-pair it with the new device.

How to Unpair Firestick Remote?

If you have two remotes attached to a single Fire Stick, I’ve also added a section on how to resolve this issue further in the post.

How to Pair Firestick Remote?

FireStick

Pressing the Play/Pause button on the remote when it’s unboxed will let you pair it right away. That ought should do the trick. That means your remote isn’t connected to your device utilizing the Fire TV Orange Light.

Following these procedures will allow you to link a new or replacement remote control with your current device:

  • Disconnect the Fire Stick from the power source.
  • The batteries must be put correctly.
  • Fire up the Fire Stick and get started. Wait for a moment as the home screen loads.
  • At this point, you should be able to use the remote. This indicates that it has been paired automatically.
  • Hold the HOME button for around 10-20 seconds if you don’t have it already.
  • When your remote is successfully associated, you’ll see a notice on the screen indicating as much. Even if it doesn’t, try running the remote control to see whether it’s functioning properly.

Adding a second remote to your Fire Stick is simple if you follow these steps:

  • Go back to the home screen by pressing the home button.
  • Select the Settings option when it has been highlighted. Go about your business with the compass.
  • In order to access controllers and Bluetooth devices, click on the respective links.
  • You may choose Amazon Fire TV Remotes from the list of possibilities that appear.
  • Select the option to add a new remote control to the system. As a result, your television will begin looking for a new unpaired remote control.
  • For around 10 seconds, press and hold the HOME button on the remote you want to link.
  • The name of this remote will show up in the list of found remotes. Once you’ve selected it using the previously associated remote, you’re all set.

When Should You Unpair Your Remote?

It is important to unpair your Fire Stick Remote before connecting it with your primary Fire TV device if you’ve misplaced your remote but have a spare that has already been attached to another device.

The remote will need to be unpaired from other devices before it can be paired with your Fire TV. Unpairing and re-pairing the remote may also help if your device has been experiencing connection troubles or the Fire Stick doesn’t react to button pushes.

However, if your Fire Stick Remote stops functioning, you don’t have to purchase a new one. There are several excellent replacement remotes for the Fire Stick available.

How to Unpair Firestick Remote?

One or two remotes may be linked to your Fire Stick. So here’s how to unpair your Fire Stick remote in two different ways:

You are using only one remote with the current device.

Unless you have another device to connect it with, there is no way to unpair it using the remote. After unplugging the old device, you may use the previous section’s instructions to pair the new remote with the old one.

You are using two remotes with the current device.

Using the second remote, follow these procedures to unpair one of the two remotes that are paired:

  • From the home screen, go to Settings.
  • Choose your Bluetooth devices and controllers carefully.
  • Select “Amazon Fire TV Remotes” in the maritime circle and click on it.
  • Unpair the remote you want to use.
  • Activate the key. In order to keep your remote linked, press the Select button. Unpair the second remote control immediately.
  • If you don’t have the old one handy, you can use the Fire TV App to connect a new Fire Stick Remote and then unpair the old one with the new one.
  • To access the Fire Stick’s settings, all you need to do is open the Fire TV app and browse the menu.
  • Add a new Amazon Fire TV remote by going to Controllers & Bluetooth Devices->Amazon Fire TV Remotes->Add New Remote.

You can also use the Fire TV App to connect your Fire Stick to WiFi without controlling using the Fire TV App.

Final Thoughts

It’s quite easy to pair or unpair your Fire Stick controller. Whether the problem persists, check to see if the remote’s batteries are correctly inserted.

You should also ensure that the remote you’re using to unpair the Fire Stick isn’t more than ten feet away from the device. The distance between them might be reduced even more if there is a barrier.

You may connect your Fire Stick to your computer instead of your TV if you’d want to experiment with it without having to fiddle with a remote.

A Universal Remote for your Fire Stick is an excellent choice if you want to manage all of your media devices, not just your Fire Stick.

Take advantage of Amazon’s customer service to resolve any issues you may be having. The Amazon Fire TV Support Page answers any of your questions concerning the Fire Stick.
