    • If the material gets into the eyes, immediately flush the eyes with clean water and seek medical attention. It may cause blindness.
    • If the material comes into contact with the skin or clothes, immediately rinse the affected area with clean water. Consult your doctor if inflammation or soreness develops.
  • If a battery is leaking, immediately move the leaking battery away from fire. The material from the leaking battery or gas may ignite, causing fire or explosion.

Pair and set up your media remote

Go to the home screen on your PS5™ console and select Settings > Accessories > Media Remote> Set Up Media Remote, and then follow the on-screen instructions to set up your media remote. Infrared (IR) technology enables you to operate certain functions on compatible televisions.

  • One media remote can operate only one PS5 console.
