Worried about Amazon fire stick remote replacement pairing issue? Or got a new controller? We know how great it feels to have a replacement remote. However, you may face issues while connecting it.
That is why in this article we will give you a step-by-step guide on the remote replacement pairing.
Convenience is not only the reason why we want to pair other remotes to our Fire TV. There are also instances such as losing our main controller, which pushes us to purchase a replacement controller.
If you already own a replacement remote but you do not know how to configure its pairing with Fire TV, then keep calm because we have the right tricks for you!
Amazon Fire Stick Remote Replacement Pairing Steps
1. Pairing with Official Fire Stick Remote
It’s noteworthy to know that Amazon Fire TV allows seven Fire Sticks to pair with its player; whether it’s the latest Fire Stick or an older model or a third-party clicker. However, if you already surpassed the seven-remote limit, then you have to forego and unpair one of the previously connected.
Let us now focus on pairing a replacement remote with your firestick.
Launch Your Fire TV Home Screen
To successfully pair a replacement remote with your Fire Stick, launch the home screen through your older or current controller or your Fire Stick Remote App.
Proceed to follow the instructions below:
- Click Home button on your Fire Stick Remote
- On the upper portion of your Home Screen, press the Settings tab
- Manually press the center circle button on your remote to select Settings
- Under settings, manually search for Controllers & Bluetooth Devices
Controllers & Bluetooth Devices
Under this section, you will see a list of devices you can pair with the Fire TV. Make sure to locate and press Amazon Fire TV Remotes on the options given to you.
Add New Remote Option
Press Add New Remote option and the Fire TV will then automatically search for discoverable devices. To make your second Fire Stick discoverable, press the Home button for a few seconds until the Fire TV detects the controller, and the particular remote you are pairing with will appear on your TV.
Confirm Your Newly Paired Device
After Fire TV successfully discovers your second newly paired Fire Stick, please ensure that you confirm adding such a newly paired controller by pressing the center circle button of your old clicker. You will then see the list of remotes paired with your Fire TV.
Ensure that the newly paired device works by pressing any of the buttons.
2. Pairing with Third-Party Remote
Since Amazon allows seven remotes to pair with your TV, then it’s not impossible to pair it with third-party clickers. However, the replacement pairing process may be fairly different compared to pairing it with an official Fire Stick clicker.
Technically speaking, the procedure on how you can replace it using a third-party remote is the same way as how you replace it with the official Firestick remote.
The thing you have to make sure of, though is that – the newly paired device works by pressing any of the buttons.
With this guide, you can now add at least 7 devices by giving you additional options on how to add third-party devices! Amazing, right?
