do you have to use amazon remote doesn't work with duracell

mtimken - Antwoord

Hey @mtimken ! As far we know, there isnt anything special about Amazon's AAA batteries. Any two *new* AAA batteries should work just fine. Are you certain both of your Duracell batteries are new? Are they rechargeable batteries that need to be charged up fully? Let us know what you find out! Good luck.

Changed batteries still does not work

Stanley E. Royal -

Does the fire stick come with an opening device? Can it be purchase in-store like at target or something?

gwen fountain - Antwoord

The opening tool used in this guide is from the iFixit store. Any plastic or nylon prying tool should work.

Kelsea Weber -

No tool is needed to get the batteries out though. Not sure why the user who wrote the guide used it.

Kelsea Weber -

The community in the answers forum are all having the same problem which doesn't appear to have a satisfactory solution. Why don't the batteries last longer than a couple of days.

I don't think it's the batteries. I've found if I unplug the fire stick from tv and turn tv off for about 5 minutes, it then works.

My firestick remote does not have any way of opening it to change batteries.

drunruh1998 - Antwoord

I can only speak for myself but one time I've had the batteries in the wrong way and it blew up my firestick I'm not joking it would never work again and my dad who's the mechanic said that when I put the batteries in the wrong way that it Fried it. I bought another one because we never could get it to work and I'm really good with this stuff

Please ensure that the batteries are not inserted incorrectly, and that they have a charge.

I cannot open the remote firestick to replace the batteries. Help.

roberttomasino - Antwoord

for the people that are still having trouble with their Amazon fire stick remote not working. This is what I had to do and it worked. Change your batteries out. Unplug your fire stick for 10 minutes. The remote still did not work for me at this time so I manually turned on The TV and the fire stick starter back up you have to go completely through the whole set up again with your remote. Not saying that’s the issue with your remote but that’s what I did and it worked for me because I was having the same problem of my remote not working. Good luck hope it works for you.

I have a newer style fire stick remote that I can’t get open. There isn’t a slot to insert the special tool. What should I do?

Dennis Ivans - Antwoord

I have purchased AAA batteries from Amazon, Rechargeable Amazon basics 800mah. They work in regular remotes but not in Amazon fire TV remote.
