If your Xfinity remote is not working this guide is for you. Xfinity is a remote control that allows you to control your TV and cable box. You can use it to change channels, turn the volume up or down, fast forward or pause your DVR, and more. It’s also universal, so you can program it to work with most TVs and cable boxes.

If you’re like most people, you probably use your TV remote control more frequently than any other device in your home. And while it’s often taken for granted, the truth is that the modern TV remote is a marvel of technology. With just a few buttons, you can control an entire entertainment system. But what happens when your remote stops working? One of the most common problems is that the batteries get worn out and need to be replaced.

If you have an Xfinity remote and the buttons are not responding or performing as expected, you may need to perform a reset to get the remote working again. Steps are provided below to walk you through this process.

To reset your Xfinity remote

Total Time: 2 minutes

  1. Locate the setup button on the remote. The button’s location varies depending on the remote model, but it should say ‘Setup’ below the button.

  2. Hold down the setup button while looking at the LED light on the front of the remote. Continue to hold the button until the LED changes from red to green. Once the light has changed to green, release the button.

  3. Enter the code 9-8-1 while still watching the LED light. If it flashes green two times, then you have successfully reset the Xfinity remote.

    Once you have successfully reset your Xfinity remote, you will need to pair it to your devices again. Follow the same steps for pairing that you did when you first purchased your remote.

The Xfinity remote should now be reset and should work properly. Thanks for taking the time to troubleshoot your remote control! Finally, test the remote by pressing any button. If it still does not work, please contact customer support. Thanks for using Xfinity!
