How to Unpair Your Firestick Remote
By using 2 remotes with the existing device:
If you are using two remotes with the same Fire TV device and you want to unpair one of them, you may easily do so using the other remote. This is because the unpairing function is built into the other remote.
Please proceed in the following manner:
1. From the home screen of the FireStick, navigate to the Settings menu.
2. Select the option “Controllers & Bluetooth Devices” from the drop-down menu.
3. Press the buttons on the Amazon Fire TV Remotes
4. Identify the FireStick remote with which you want to break the pairing.
To access the 3-line menu on the “other” remote, hit the corresponding button (pressing the button on the remote you wish to unpair will not work).
5. Use the “other” remote to choose something by pressing its corresponding button.
If you are utilizing two separate remote controllers, you will need to follow these steps to unpair a FireStick remote. You are now able to utilize the remote that has not been associated with any of the other Fire Stick or Fire TV devices.
