How To Reset Amazon Firestick Without Remote/Wi-Fi?

Do you have an Amazon Firestick but don’t have the remote? Or maybe you lost your remote and can’t reset your Firestick. Don’t worry, we’ll show you how to do it without the remote.

First, turn on your TV and make sure it’s set to the input for your Firestick. Next, press and hold the power button on the Firestick for about 25 seconds. You’ll see the word “reset” appear on the screen. Release the button and your Firestick will restart.

How To Reset Amazon Firestick Without Remote?

The following method that we’re going to show you is not just for people who lost their remote. This will work if your remote has any issues and won’t connect to the Firestick.

1. Using The Google Home App

If you have an android phone or tablet, you can use the Google Home app to control your Firestick.

First, make sure both your phone and Firestick are on the same network. You can do this by going to Settings > Network > Wi-Fi on your phone and checking the name of the network next to Amazon Fire TV.

Next, open the Google Home app and click on the menu in the top left corner. Select “More Settings” and then “TV & Audio Devices.” Under “Amazon Fire TV,” click on “Link now.”

The Google Home app will now search for your Firestick. Once it’s found, it will ask you to give it a name. After that, you’ll be able to control your Firestick using your voice.

Then you can reset your Firestick using the following voice command: “OK Google, restart my Fire TV.”

2. Using A New Remote On Your Phone

If you have a different remote that works with your Firestick or want to use an app on your phone as a remote, the process is similar to the one above.

First, make sure both your phone and Firestick are on the same network. You can do this by going to Settings > Network > Wi-Fi on your phone and checking the name of the network next to Amazon Fire TV.

Next, open up any app that will function as a remote for your Firestick. For example, I’ve already downloaded a universal TV remote control app from LG onto my phone so I’ll be using that.

Once the app is open, click on the menu in the top left corner and select “Add Device.” This will bring up a list of devices that you can add. Select “Amazon Fire TV” and then enter the code that appears on your TV screen.

Your phone will now be linked to your Firestick. You can reset your Firestick by going to Settings > System > Reset to Factory Defaults. Then choose “Reset.”

3. Using Another Phone As A Remote Control

If you don’t have an android phone or tablet, you can also use another phone as a remote control for your Firestick.

First, make sure both your phones are on the same network. You can do this by going to Settings > Network on both phones and checking the name of the network next to Amazon Fire TV.

Next, go into your phone’s settings and check whether Bluetooth is turned on. If it’s not, turn it on. Then open up any app that will function as a remote control for your Firestick. In this example, I’ll be using Unified Remote from Microsoft which you can get from the Play Store.

In order for Unified Remote to work with your Firestick, you’ll have to connect them via Bluetooth first so they can “discover” each other. To do this, click on the menu in the top left corner of Unified Remote and select “Add New.” You should see “Amazon_Fire_TV” listed under Available devices.

Click on “Amazon_Fire_TV” and it will bring up a list of devices that are currently connected to your phone via Bluetooth. Select the one that corresponds with your Firestick and then click on “Pair.”

Your phone will now be linked to your Firestick. You can reset your Firestick by going to Settings > System > Reset to Factory Defaults. Then choose “Reset.”

4. Using The Amazon App

If you’re not comfortable using voice commands or don’t have a smartphone, you can also use the Amazon app to control your Firestick.

First, make sure both your phone and Firestick are on the same network. can do this by going to Settings > Network > Wi-Fi on your phone and checking the name of the network next to Amazon Fire TV.

Next, open up the Amazon app on your phone. Select “Menu” in the top left corner followed by “Settings.” Under “Settings,” look for “Fire TV Settings” and select it.

Go into the Firestick you want to reset under “My Devices” and then click on “Actions.” You should see a list of available options that will reset your Firestick. Click on “Reset to Factory Defaults” which will bring up a warning box asking if you’re sure you want to do this. After that, reboot your Firestick using any method above and it’s all done.

How To Reset Amazon Firestick Without Wi-Fi?

Just like how you can reset your Firestick without using any remote, you can also reset your Firestick without an internet connection.

1. Resetting Your Firestick Using The Settings App

Go to “Settings” on your Firestick and then click on “System.” You should see a row of icons. Click on the one that looks like an exclamation point inside a triangle. This will bring up a warning box telling you that all data will be wiped if you do this. Click on “Reset to Factory Defaults” and reboot your device using any method above.

2. Resetting Your Firestick Using A Game Controller

Just like resetting your router, you can also reset your Firestick by pressing the tiny reset button found at the back of the device besides its power cord input. But what’s better is doing it with a game controller as it’ll make it easier for you to navigate through the menus.

First, make sure your Firestick is off and unplugged from the power source. Next, locate the tiny reset button at the back of the device, and using a sharp object (like a paperclip), press and hold it down for about 10 seconds.

After that, plug in your Firestick and turn it on. You’ll see a warning box pop up asking if you want to restore your device to its factory defaults. Select “Yes” and then reboot your Firestick using any method above.
