Question about Firestick remote

I have a Firestick remote and it is flashing red and I don’t see anything online talking about that I see them mention flashing orange or blue or yellow but no red color does anybody know what is going on and how to fix it

Red (slow blinking) – Low battery . Replace the batteries in your remote. Red (fast blinking) – There’s a problem with your remote. Try to reset your Fire TV remote. Orange – The remote isn’t paired with your Fire TV.
