However, it is quite common for users to have issues with their light strip remote not working properly. In this article, we will be going over some troubleshooting methods to help you out if you’re in a similar situation.
How to Fix Monster LED Light Strip Remote Not Working?
- Replace Batteries
If you have been using the remote for a long time and it has just started to malfunction then it is highly likely that the remote batteries have dried out. In which condition the only option left is to buy a new battery cell and replace it with the old one.
The replacement batteries are quiet and you can buy them from Amazon quite easily. You should refer to the user manual if you’re not aware of the battery replacement procedure. There are also several YouTube tutorials available to help you guide through this process.
- Pair Remote
Sometimes the LED light strips get unpaired with the remote. This is why you’re not able to control your LED lights using the remote. In some cases, users with multiple LED strips in their home have the remote paired up with some other LED strip.
To get the remote paired, all you have to do is plug in the LED lights into a power source. After that hold down the S+ button on the remote, you will notice your LED strip will start blinking at which point the remote is paired up with the LED lights and you can use it freely.
In case you have multiple LED strips in your house then there is a chance that your remote is paired up with some other LED strip controller. In which scenario, you have to first unpair the remote from that LED strip and then pair it again with the LED strips you want to control. To unpair the remote you have to plug in the LED strip to a power source and hold down the S- button. After the LED strip starts blinking you can go ahead and connect it to the new strip.
- Factory Default
If your issue persists after making sure that the remote is paired up with the LED strips then it is likely that the issue is in the LED strips and not your remote. In which scenario resetting the LED strips to factory settings might help you sort out your problem. Here is how you can easily do that.
Just open up your monster smart app and select the LED strips from the home screen. From there you need to go into device settings and click on the reset option. After that just wait a few seconds while your LED strips reset. If you want to do it manually then depending upon your LED strip version you will either have to hold the power button on the controller for around 10 seconds or insert a pin into the reset button.
After the reset process is done, you will have to reconfigure the smart lights again with your mobile app and other home automation systems like Google Home or Alexa. If you’re still confused about the reset process then you can watch a YouTube tutorial or refer to the user manual to find step-by-step instructions.
- Faulty Remote
After trying all of the above fixes if your remote is still not working with the monster LED lights then it is likely that your remote is faulty. In that situation, the only thing you can do is ask your supplier for a replacement order. Make sure to contact your supplier immediately after running into this error.
It will be quite easy to secure a replacement order if your warranty is still intact. Depending upon where you bought it from it will take you around a week to secure a replacement order. On the off chance, if you’re having issues in getting a replacement order from your supplier then your best bet would be to contact the Monster support team and ask for their help.
