Insignia TV Remote Not Working (How To Fix It)

There are several reasons why the Insignia Fire TV remote is not working. So, before you fix it, you need to know why it's not working. First of all, we have to figure out what's wrong.


Your remote might also need to be reset before it will work. If there are dirt particles inside the sensor button of your remote, the remote won't work.

Once you know what's wrong with your remote, you should look for better ways to fix it. You have to follow the steps based on what your problem is. 


Here are some points that will help you to fix an Insignia TV remote that doesn't work:


1. Look at the batteries: Make sure that the batteries in the remote are in the right place and have enough power. If the batteries are running low, you should get new ones. If replacing the batteries didn't fix the problem, move on to the next step.


2. Try a power reset: Unplug the TV and wait 30 seconds before plugging it back in. This will fix any short-term problems that might stop the remote from working. Try the remote again after you've plugged the TV back in.


3. Check for interference: Fans, lamps, and other electronic devices can get in the way of the TV remote's signal. Make sure that these things are kept from the remote's way. If there is interference, move the device causing the interference away from the TV.


4. Clean the remote. The remote will only work right if there is dust or dirt on the buttons. Use a soft cloth to clean the buttons and the infrared sensor on the front of the remote. This will make sure that the signal from the remote to the TV is clear.


6. Sync the remote: If it still doesn't work, try syncing it with the TV. The sync process will get the remote and TV to talk to each other again. You can find out how to do this in the TV manual.



7. Reset the remote: If it still doesn't work, try resetting it. Find out how to reset the remote by reading the TV manually.

To restart the TV, unplug it from the wall for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. This will fix any short-term problems that might stop the remote from working.


If the remote still isn't working, check to see if there are any software updates for your TV. Bugs or compatibility issues could be causing the remote to malfunction. Software updates can fix these problems. How to check for software updates can be found in the TV's manual or on the manufacturer's website.


If none of these steps fix the problem, the remote may have a hardware problem.  

In this case, you might need to buy a new remote control. Before you do that, try a different remote (from a cable box or another device, for example) to see if it works with your TV. 

If a different remote works, the problem is probably with your original remote, and you'll need to buy a new one.


Can we use other companies' remotes?


Yes, we can use third-party remotes, but they have to connect to the Insignia Fire TV the same way the original remote does.


1. Turn on both the TV and the Universal Insignia remote at the same time.


2. Once that is done, press the "Insignia TV" button for three seconds.



3. Point the remote control toward the TV.


4. Scroll up and down the screen to turn off your phone.


5. Click the "Insignia TV" button a second time to save the code for good.


A TV can't be turned on or off without a remote-control device. If the TV remote doesn't work, you won't be able to use the TV. 

If your Insignia Fire TV remote doesn't work, you can try the following:


• You can reset your remote, which is a good and reliable option, or get new batteries.


• You can also try using different batteries. When you reset your device, it returns to the settings it had when it was first made. You could also try resetting your TV if the problem doesn't disappear.


• If there is no chance that your remote will work, you should get a new one.

• You can also use remotes made by other companies.
