1. Remove batteries from remote and unplug the Fire TV Stick from the HDMI port.
2. Remove the micro USB charging cable from the side of the Fire TV stick.
3. Let the device and remote sit with no power for 1 minute.
4. Plug Micro USB charging cable into the Fire TV Stick and plug the Fire TV Stick into HDMI port on the TV.
5. When you see the Fire TV logo appear on the screen place batteries (preferably a fresh set) back in remote, smooth sides of batteries up against the springs in remote.
6. Once the home screen loads press and hold the Home button for 10 seconds for the remote pair.
If the steps above fail please try to reset the software on the remote. This software reset can be done by pressing and holding the Menu button, the Left button (left side of navigational ring) and the Back button (the arrow that curves back toward the left) all together for 10 seconds.
The remote will become inactive for up to 2 minutes during this software reset.
If the remote doesn't pair again automatically after the 2 minutes, press and hold the Home button for at least 10 seconds to make it discoverable so the devices can try pairing again.
Works just like the original that came with it so no worries there.
Cons: This thing will disappear in a hot second if you have kids. It's small and it's black.
The first few months of owning it, we spent many nights searching for it. Then we got smart. We attached some velcro to the back of the remote and on the side of the TV. We also wrapped some pink duct tape around it. That helped for a long time. But when your 2 year old throws your Amazon Fire TV remote in the toilet, you order a second one. We ordered a replacement and it's the same thing.
We are on #3 or 4.
We have kids. The duck below is my solution when the tiger wasn't findable enough....
UPDATE: I was contacted by customer service and was advised to remove batteries and insert a fresh pair (although batteries were brand new to begin with) and to unplug the firestick to restart it. The remote has been working properly since doing this. I also used the same batteries. I just hope this isn't something that will need to be done frequently.
