If you have purchased a new fire stick remote, you might be wondering how to pair it without the old one. Fortunately, there are some simple troubleshooting steps you can follow to get your new remote up and running in no time.

First, make sure that the new remote has fresh batteries. A weak or dead battery can prevent the remote from pairing properly with your fire stick device. Next, be sure that the new remote is capable of receiving IR signals from your TV. You can do this by enabling HDMI-CEC on your television. This will enable your TV to receive IR signals from remotes that have been paired with the Fire Stick device.

Finally, ensure that your Wi-Fi network is working correctly and stable. If you experience issues with your Wi-Fi network, it may interfere with the pairing process and prevent your replacement remote from connecting properly with your Fire Stick device.

Once you've made sure that the new remote is able to receive IR signals from your TV, follow the instructions on your TV screen to complete the pairing process. You'll likely be asked to press certain buttons on the new remote and enter a code displayed on the screen. Follow the directions exactly, and before you know it, your new fire stick remote will be paired and ready to use!
