Often, resetting the remote is the most straightforward solution for many issues. Here’s how you can reset your Google Remote:
1. Press and hold the "back" and "home" buttons on your remote for about 10 seconds. 2. Release the buttons when the LED light on your remote starts flashing. 3. Your remote will now restart and hopefully start functioning normally.
If resetting didn’t solve the issue, you might need to try the next method.
Replacing the Batteries
Sometimes, the problem is as simple as the batteries running out of power. To replace the batteries, follow these steps:
1. Slide the back cover of your Google Remote off. 2. Remove the old batteries. 3. Insert new batteries, making sure to align the + and - symbols correctly. 4. Replace the back cover.
After replacing the batteries, check if your remote is working. If not, let’s move to the next solution.
Pairing the Remote Again
If your Google Remote is not responding at all, it might have lost its connection to your device. In such cases, re-pairing your remote could help. Here’s how:
1. On your Google device, go to <strong>Settings</strong> > <strong>Remotes & Accessories</strong>. 2. Choose <strong>Add Accessory</strong>. 3. Press and hold the 'back' and 'home' buttons on your remote for 3 seconds. 4. Your device should show 'Google Remote' under the available devices. 5. Select it to pair.
