A:AnswerHi there. Thank you for reaching out about this! I'm sorry you're running into issues with the remote. That's definitely no fun. It looks like you've done the initial troubleshooting, which is great. I'd recommend contacting your local Best Buy store and seeing if we can get you a new remote under your Geek Squad Protection plan. You can find information about your local store at www.bestbuy.com/storelocator.
A:AnswerHi Linda. Thanks for your great question! You actually don't need to register the protection plan! From the moment of purchase, it's all ready to go. So you can have peace of mind that if something happens, we can pull up the plan through your account. You, yourself, can also see it online through your Best Buy profile. I hope this helps. If you have further questions, please reach out!
