What is a Fire Stick Remote?

Fire Stick Remote is a device that allows you to control your Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. It’s the most powerful remote that you can get for your Fire TV device.

It connects to your WiFi and acts as a remote controller for all the Fire TV apps. You can use it to control the volume, play, pause, fast forward, rewind and navigate through menus.

What Causes Volume Problems on Fire Stick Remote?

Incorrect Audio Settings

One of the most common issues with the Fire Stick remote is that the audio settings are not set correctly.

This can be fixed by simply changing the settings. The steps are as follows:

On your Fire TV device, open Settings. Select System > Audio and then select Audio Output. Select Stereo, Mono, or 5.1 Surround Sound from the menu on the left side of the screen. Set your preferred audio output level (high is best). You may need to increase this if you hear buzzing noises from your TV speakers when you turn up the volume on your Fire TV device (even if it’s turned up). Select OK to save your changes and exit Settings.

Incorrect Device Settings

The Fire Stick remote is capable of pairing with more than one device at a time. This means that it can be paired with more than one Fire TV device and, if you have multiple devices connected to your Fire TV, you may have issues with the volume on each device.

To solve this issue, you must ensure that the Fire Stick remote is paired with the correct device. To pair the remote with your TV:

On your Fire TV device, open Settings. Select System > Device Options > Bluetooth Settings and select the pair button next to the device you wish to pair your remote with. Select OK to save your changes and exit Settings. To pair the remote with another device, repeat these steps for that device.

Incorrect Remote Connection

If you are using multiple remotes on a single Fire TV, there is a chance that you may have an issue where two or more remotes are paired to different devices (and possibly not working at all). If this is the case, follow these steps:

On your Fire TV device, open Settings. Select System > Device Options > Bluetooth Settings and select the pair button next to the device you wish to pair your remote with. Select OK to save your changes and exit Settings. On your remote, hold down the pairing button until the lights on both devices flash. Select OK to save your changes and exit Settings.

Wrong HDMI Port

The Fire Stick remote uses a special remote control, called a receiver, to pair with your Fire TV device. This means that the Fire Stick remote may be paired with the wrong HDMI port on your TV.

To solve this issue, make sure that the Fire Stick remote is connected to the correct HDMI port on your TV.

Battery Is Low

If you are experiencing volume issues on your Fire TV device, make sure that the battery in your remote is not low. This is an easy way to solve this issue as it can be solved by simply replacing the battery.

What Other Ways Can I Do to Fix Volume Problems on Remote Control?

Reset the Device

First, if you are using the remote control with a sound bar, try resetting the device. This may solve the problem and get you back to using your remote control.

Power the sound bar and make sure all of the cables are plugged in securely. Next, press and hold down the power button on your sound bar for at least 10 seconds until it turns off. Turn it back on and see if it works now.

If you are still having problems with volume after resetting your device, try another option. If you have an HDMI cable that is working, connect your remote control to another HDMI port on your TV or sound system. If that doesn’t work, try connecting it to a different TV or sound system with a different HDMI port or connection type.

Make Sure It’s Unmuted

If you have a TV that has a mute function, make sure it is not muted. Try turning the volume up on your TV or sound system and see if it’s working now.

Clean Your Remote Control

To make sure that your remote control is clean, try cleaning it with a can of compressed air or with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. This may help if there are dust particles stuck inside the remote control.

Remove Any Signal Obstacles

To make sure that your remote control is getting a clear signal, try removing any obstructions. This may include cupboards, walls, outlets, cords, and any other obstructions. If you can’t get a clear signal, try adjusting the remote control settings on your TV or sound system.

Reset Your Remote Control

If you are still having problems with the volume on your remote control after trying the above steps, try resetting it. This will reset all of the settings to their default values and should solve your problem.

Turn off the soundbar and sound system. Power off the TV or sound system. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Press and hold down on the remote control for at least 10 seconds until it turns off. Plug the power cord back in and turn on your TV or sound system.
