If your Roku remote doesn’t work correctly, you can reset it to get it functioning properly again. This guide will explain how.
If your Roku remote is acting slow or stops working entirely, you might want to reach for batteries. If you can recharge the remote, it might be worth trying that, too.
What happens if this doesn’t fix the issue? Something else could be wrong with the Roku remote itself. You can give it a fresh start by resetting and re-pairing the remote to the Roku device you’re using.
If you’re unsure how, here’s what you’ll need to do to reset a Roku remote.
How to Reset a Roku Remote
If you need to reset a Roku remote, the process is straightforward, but it requires you to follow a few simple steps.
To reset a Roku remote:
- Unplug the power cord from your Roku TV (including Roku TVs) and wait 15 seconds before plugging it back in.
- Once the Roku has rebooted, it will display the home screen.
- Restart the remote by removing the batteries and reinserting them. For rechargeable batteries, hold the pairing button for about 20 seconds and release the button when the status light rapidly flashes green.
- Next, hold the pairing button for five seconds until the status light flashes green. After that, follow the on-screen instructions for the steps to pair the remote.

If you follow the steps above, you’ll be able to reset your Roku remote and restore functionality (if there isn’t a problem with it). Once you reset a Roku remote, it should be able to stay connected to your Roku device automatically. However, like any type of electronics, you may occasionally need to reset it.
If you’re still having issues with Roku remote volume, you’ll need to troubleshoot the problem. Speaking of the Roku remote, did you know you can control your Roku with Alexa? If Amazon isn’t your thing, you can control Roku with Google Assistant. If fact, you can also control Roku with Apple Watch.
