If your batteries are corroded, that is what kills remote controls. If a remote isn't going to be used for any length of time, you should remove the batteries.

Click here to order a new remote. This will allow you to use your current Fire Stick without replacing the whole thing.

Please rate 3-5 stars for my service. If you need more help, please reply.
