Mine just stopped working. Checked the status, and it says offline. Tried two different sets of new batteries.

Hold down the Home button for at least five seconds. Give it a few seconds and see if the remote works.

It's not a BT pairing problem; the remote just died. Amazon is sending a new one. It should arrive today. This is actually the second remote that failed. The first one had a battery drain problem. I guess that the remote fail enough where they changed their return policy so that they will actually send out a new remote, and you just return the old one when you get it - kind of like the hard drive warranty policy.

This just happened to me. I thought my remote stopped working when I forcefully shut down the amazon fire tv (pressing and holding the center and play button).
When the amazon firetv rebooted the remote stopped functioning.

Luckily, I used the Amazon remote on my android phone and went into setting to repair the bluetooth on the remote and everything worked fine.
I do not know why it lost its bluetooth connection.

My fire tv remote won't work. There is no light on the remote when I press any function. I changed batteries with new ones and it's still not working? Any ideas or do I need a new remote. My fire tv box is fairly new.

For regular issues like that, I would chat with Amazon. They will probably run through done things then replace if necessary

My fire stick remote is doing weird things. When I go to choose anything, like choosing a movie to watch or picking a video, the remote won't stop on my choice. The minute I press to go through the programmes to get to my own, the remote flies along and doesn't stop until the end. It's driving me nuts. I try to send it back and it does the same thing, not stopping until it gets to the beginning. I try to outwit it by clicking on pages that I can't even see because it's moving too fast and sometimes I can stop it that way, albeit not on the stop that's playing what I want to see. Has anyone else had this?
