How To Repair Google Tv Remote

Have you been experiencing problems with your Google TV remote recently? Don’t panic! With a few simple steps, you can troubleshoot and repair your Google TV remote yourself. This blog will guide you through the process.

Step 1: Troubleshoot the Problem

The first step is to identify what is wrong with the remote. Common problems include a non-responsive remote, buttons not working, and the remote not connecting to the TV. Here’s how you can troubleshoot these issues:

  1. Non-responsive remote: Try changing the batteries. If this doesn’t resolve the issue, it could be due to a software glitch or physical damage.
  2. Buttons not working: The buttons might be sticky due to dirt or liquid spills. Cleaning the remote could help.
  3. Remote not connecting to the TV: Check if the remote is paired with the TV. If not, you might need to re-pair it.

Step 2: Clean the Remote

If the buttons on your remote aren’t working, cleaning it might help. Here’s how to do it:

1. Remove the batteries from the remote.
2. Use a soft cloth or cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to gently clean the buttons and the surrounding areas.
3. Allow the remote to dry completely before inserting the batteries back.

Step 3: Perform a Factory Reset

If your remote is unresponsive or not connecting to the TV, a factory reset might help. Bear in mind, this will delete all the data and settings on your remote.

1. Press and hold the "Back" and "Home" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds until the LED light turns red.
2. Release the buttons. The remote will reboot and the LED will turn white, indicating a successful factory reset.

Step 4: Re-pair the Remote with the TV

If your remote is not connecting to your Google TV, here’s how to re-pair it:

1. On your Google TV, go to Settings.
2. Click on Remotes & Accessories.
3. Click on Pair Remote.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair your remote.


If none of the above steps work, your Google TV remote might be damaged and need professional repair or replacement. However, in many cases, these simple DIY solutions can solve most common remote problems and have you back to controlling your Google TV in no time.
