Google Chromecast TV remote issue

Anyone had issues with the Google Chromecast TV remote?

I've reset the Chromecast and the Remote, both are paired and updated to the latest firmware.

However the back button the remote does not work, it clicks fine and mechanically feels okay.

All the other buttons seems to work okay.

I tried un-pairing and re-pairing the remote but still the same.

Hi doogie893,

 

Thanks for reaching out and I'm sorry to hear that you're having an issue with your Chromecast Voice Remote. 

 

Have you tried replacing the batteries? If you haven't yet, please replace all batteries at the same time. Do not mix old and new batteries and do not use lithium-ion or any other batteries with rated voltage above 1.5 V. Resetting it again might also help.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Jennifer

Hello there,

 

How's it going? Did those steps help?

 

Thanks,

Hi,

Thanks I’ve already tried those things.

I’m pretty confident it’s a hardware issue, however I’m now using my Samsung TV smart remote to control it, so it’s not a major issue.

Thanks

Sorry for the delayed response.

The remote definitely has a hardware issue, I see you sell them on the store.

Thanks for your help.
