  1. Dead batteries: This is often the simplest and most common reason a remote stops working. Ensure that the batteries in your remote are fresh and properly installed before troubleshooting any other issues.
  2. Dirty or damaged IR sensor: If the IR sensor on your remote is dirty or damaged, it may not be able to receive signals properly. Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the sensor, or replace the remote if necessary.
  3. Incompatible software: If you’ve recently updated the software on your Shield TV Pro, it’s possible that compatibility issues with the new version could be causing problems with your remote. Try resetting your Shield TV Pro to factory settings and see if that resolves the issue.
  4. Radio interference: If you live in an area with a lot of radio interference (such as near power lines or radios), this can sometimes interfere with the signal from your remote control. Try moving your Shield TV Pro and/orremote to a different location in your home and see if that helps.
