Are you having issues with your FireTV and are unable to locate the remote, or is the firestick remote not working? Are you now thinking about, what you can do to reset your Fire Stick without a remote? If so, you’re on the right track because, in this post, we will go over the entire procedure to reset the device’s factory settings without any remote controls.
Reset Fire Stick without Remote Control
What if you’ve utilized a universal remote from a third party and have tried a Bluetooth keyboard too but aren’t able to find any success? The only option is to use the Fire TV remote application to reset the remote. It’s the most reliable app downloaded through the Google Play Store and the App Store.
This app comes with easy and simple interfaces such as touch Gestures or navigation keys to move left, right, left, down, and left. It is still recommended to type quickly with the keyboard of your phone. It has an Alexa button, too. This is a fantastic feature since I use it due to the convenience of the keyboard to search applications or other content.
Okay, here are the steps you must follow to reset the Fire Stick without a remote:
First, open the App Store, either Android or iOS, look for the Fire TV remote, and then launch the first app.
Then click the Download or Get button, and this application will begin downloading. When it is complete, tap the Open button to open it.
When you launch it the first time, you will be greeted with the Fire TV Announcements. Ignore them by pressing No, Thank You.
Connect via the WiFi that you use on your TV. You will be able to see FireTV’s name shows up on your screen. Just click on it.
After you tap on the name, a code will be displayed on your TV. Just press the code on your mobile device to pair your remote.
The mobile has been paired, and you can now press and choose the direction to activate the navigation key. The next step is to reset Firestick.
Hit the Setting icon to the right of it.
In this section, you will look at the various options available to you for putting your FireTV to sleep mode, too. However, you must click on FireTV Settings.
After going to Settings, proceed to the next step and open the My Fire TV section.
Scroll down, and then click the Reset Back to Factory defaults.
If you choose this option, you will see a message that reads You are close to Reset the device. If you’re requested to confirm, click the Reset button.
This is it. During this reset process, the Fire TV might restart several times, and you’ll be able to see that everything has been removed and restored to default settings.
