Right Now the first tip we have for you is  unplugging your Roku device by taking it and plugging it to the wall and waiting about 30 seconds and then plugging it back. Sometimes this will fix some of the pairing issues that you are having and everything should be connected and working after this.

Tip 2: Removing batteries From Remote

 The second tip I have for you is taking your Roku remote and taking out the batteries and sometimes when you take out the batteries of these Roku remotes and put them back in they will automatically start pairing with any of available devices that are close to it. 

Step 1: So go ahead take out the batteries and place them back in and along with the first step where you unplug the Roku device from the wall outlet this will resolve most the issues that you’re having with this device just with first and second step.

Step 2: Also if you look at the back of the remote and open up the battery compartment you will see there may be a button on the back of your remote and there might be like a little LED light.  

Step 3: If you go ahead and press the button by the battery compartment for approximately five seconds this will start putting your remote into pairing mode and it will start looking for available Roku devices near it so go ahead and press that button if you have it. Roku stick premiere remote does not have this however some more advanced Roku devices should have this feature and you’ll know it’s starting to look for pairing devices available when the LED light starts flashing. So go ahead and try this.

Step 1: Go to the Play Store and then type in Roku.

Step 2: Once you type in Roku you will be able to install it from there.

When you open up the application you’ll have a couple different menu options if you go remote though you can actually control your device just from there and I want to make a quick mention that you will need Wi-Fi enabled to go ahead and connect your Android phone to your Roku device. 

So make sure Wi-Fi is turned on on your phone and this will allow you to actually use your Android phone as a remote and some of the features on here are actually really good they have the voice commands on there they have a keyboard and you can also plug in your headphones to your phone and get the audio from any kind of television shows or maybe even a YouTube video that you’re watching so the phone app you can control it and you get some of the advanced features that you would on a more advanced Roku devices just on your phone and this will help out.
