Here’s how to pair a new Fire Stick remote without the old one:

Method 1: Using the Fire TV App on Your Phone

  1. Download and Launch the App: Make sure you have the Fire TV app downloaded and installed on your smartphone or tablet. It’s available for both iOS and Android devices.

  2. Connect to the Same Wi-Fi: Ensure your phone or tablet and your Fire Stick are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

  3. Open the App Menu: Launch the Fire TV app and tap the menu icon (usually three horizontal lines) in the top left corner.

  4. Select Settings: Scroll down and select the “Settings” option from the menu.

  5. Choose Controllers & Bluetooth Devices: Within the Settings menu, navigate to the option labeled “Controllers & Bluetooth Devices” or similar wording.

  6. Select Amazon Fire TV Remotes: Under “Controllers & Bluetooth Devices,” you should see an option for “Amazon Fire TV Remotes” or something similar. Tap on that option.

  7. Add New Remote: Within the “Amazon Fire TV Remotes” section, look for an option to “Add New Remote” or similar wording. Select this option.

  8. Put Fire Stick in Pairing Mode: On your Fire Stick, unplug it from the power source for a few seconds and then plug it back in. This typically triggers pairing mode on most Fire Stick devices.

  9. Fire TV Remote Detected: The Fire TV app should display a message indicating a new remote is being detected.

  10. Select the Remote: If multiple remotes are found, choose the one you want to pair with your Fire Stick.

  11. Pairing Complete: The app should confirm successful pairing of the new remote with your Fire Stick.

Method 2: Using the Fire Stick Menu (Without Phone App)

  1. Turn on Fire Stick: Ensure your Fire Stick is powered on and displaying the home screen.

  2. Go to Settings: Using the navigation buttons on your Fire Stick (the directional pad or menu button in the center of the remote circle), navigate to the “Settings” menu. It’s usually located at the top of the home screen.

  3. Select Controllers & Bluetooth Devices: Within the Settings menu, scroll down and select the option labeled “Controllers & Bluetooth Devices” or similar wording.

  6. Hold Home Button: On your new Fire Stick remote, locate the “Home” button (usually the circular button in the center). Hold down the Home button for at least 10 seconds.

  7. Fire Stick in Pairing Mode: The Fire Stick should enter pairing mode, and you might see an on-screen message indicating this.

  8. Remote Detected and Paired: Once the Fire Stick detects the remote, it should display a message confirming successful pairing.

Additional Tips:

  • If you’re facing any difficulties pairing the remote, try restarting both the Fire Stick and your phone or tablet.
  • Ensure your new remote has fresh batteries and that the battery compartment is closed securely.
  • If you’re still having trouble, consult the official Fire Stick user guide or contact Amazon customer support for further assistance.
