Damaged remote control wifi disconnected - help!
Hi, I own a 2nd generation box and recently my daughter dropped the remote in a bucket of water which was swiftly recovered. The remote is now non-functional so rather than buy a new one I looked at other ways of controlling the device one being the fire TV app. The problem I am presented with is when the box boots up it displays “network connection lost please check settings”. As I have no control to do this, I tried to connect with the device using the app which is not possible as it will not display the numerical code to pair with my phone. Can anyone please tell me what I need to do to resolve this problem? Are fire remotes unique to each device? Is there any point buying another remote to find that it too will not connect? All advice much appreciated thank you very much.
