Hold down the Back button and the Select button simultaneously for approximately 15 seconds, or until the light on the remote turns off. This successfully resets the remote control.
Next, remove your Shield TV from the outlet, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in.
Once the device restarts and the home screen is visible, press and hold the Select button until you observe the light flashing (either green or blue, depending on the model).
Be sure to follow any on-screen instructions and check if you’re able to pair the remote with the device.

After that, click “Clear Data” and confirm. This will reset the app’s settings.
After clearing the cache and data, exit the app settings and restart your Shield TV device.
Once the Shield TV restarts, follow the initial pairing process to connect your Shield TV remote to the device.
Clearing the cache and data of the Bluetooth app can help resolve connectivity issues between your Shield TV remote and the device itself. This method refreshes the connection settings and can potentially solve problems you might be experiencing.
