You’ll be able to effortlessly control your TV and view your favorite shows once you connect your Firestick remote to your television.

The Firestick remote is designed in such a way that it needs to be synced to your TV before you can use it for control.

Different Ways to Sync a FireStick Remote To TV

You may have to sync your FireStick remote with the device in a variety of situations. Let’s look at each scenario individually.

Note: Double-check that the batteries in the remote are inserted.

1. Sync the remote during FireStick setup

You must sync the FireStick remote when setting up Amazon FireStick for the very first time after taking it out of the box (or after resetting it).

You must first sync the remote to proceed with the setup process.

During the setup, you’ll be asked to hit the Play/Pause button on the Amazon FireStick remote to pair it.

That’s how simple it is.

2. Sync a new/replacement remote

So you’ve purchased a new/replacement remote because the previous remote was damaged or stopped working. Before you can use the new remote, you must first sync it with your device. Simply follow the instructions outlined below:

  • When you reboot your TV the new remote may be immediately paired. To see if this is the case, use the remote.
  • Hold down the HOME button on your FireStick remote for 8-15 seconds if it hasn’t paired automatically.
  • Your TV may display a message indicating that the remote has been successfully paired. Try using the remote to see if the notification is working if it isn’t presented or if you missed it.

This is how a new or replacement remote can be synced.
