Troubleshooting Your Telus Remote

Here are some solutions that you can try to fix a non-responsive Telus remote:

#1. Clear The Way

Your Telus remote is not responding because it cannot reach your digital box and TV or it has a weak signal.

Ensure that you are pointing the remote straight at the digital box and TV and that there are no objects in front of the digital box and TV.

#2. Update Firmware

The next solution is to ensure that your remote’s firmware is updated.

You can check the firmware updates on the home screen by going to Settings > Device settings > Remote & Accessories > TELUS Remote > Firmware Update.

If there is a firmware update available, press the OK button on your remote to download and install it.

#3. Change Batteries

If your remote batteries are low, then you should replace them immediately as you will not be able to control your digital box and TV.

First, check the battery life of your remote by going to Settings > Device Settings > Remotes & Accessories > TELUS Remote > Battery.

You will see ‘Poor’, ‘Fair’, ‘Good’, or ‘Full’. If you see ‘Poor’, you should get 2 new AAA batteries and ensure that they are firmly placed in their connectors and the cover is put securely.

#4. Unpair and Re-Pair

Also, you can try un-paring and re-pairing your remote using the steps below:

  • Press the 4 and 6 buttons and hold them until you see a solid green light on your remote.
  • Now press OK and wait for the light to blink green twice meaning the remote has been unpaired from the digital box.
  • Press any button and give the remote a few seconds to connect using the IR mode.
  • If you press any key now, the LED should be blinking white.
  • Point the remote at the digital box and press the OK button. This will trigger the Bluetooth pairing mechanism between your digital box and remote.

#5. Reset Your Remote

Resetting your remote can fix its slowness or unresponsiveness.

Follow these steps for resetting Slimline and Slimline 2 remotes:

  • Press the Options button for about 3 seconds and the mode light which is next to the power button will blink twice.
  • Enter the code 1000 for the Slimline remote and 9999 for the Slimline 2 remote. The mode light will blink twice showing that the remote has been reset to its default settings.

#6. Replace the Remote

If the steps mentioned above do not fix the problem, maybe it is time to get a new remote.

If your remote is not working because of a manufacturing error, you can claim it by calling a TELUS team member. Ensure that you have your account number and remote when you call.

If you cannot claim a replacement, you can buy a new remote either by contacting the TELUS team here or ordering online here.
