do you have to use amazon batteries...my remote doesn't work with duracell

mtimken - Reply

Hey @mtimken ! As far we know, there isnt anything special about Amazon's AAA batteries. Any two *new* AAA batteries should work just fine. Are you certain both of your Duracell batteries are new? Are they rechargeable batteries that need to be charged up fully? Let us know what you find out! Good luck.

Does the fire stick come with an opening device? Can it be purchase in-store like at target or something?

The opening tool used in this guide is from the iFixit store. Any plastic or nylon prying tool should work.

No tool is needed to get the batteries out though. Not sure why the user who wrote the guide used it.

The community in the answers forum are all having the same problem which doesn't appear to have a satisfactory solution. Why don't the batteries last longer than a couple of days.

I don't think it's the batteries. I've found if I unplug the fire stick from tv and turn tv off for about 5 minutes, it then works.
