This guide will cover how to troubleshoot and operate both magic and standard remote controls. Depending upon the model of your LG TV, the home screen may look different depending on the operating system platform. If ALL the buttons on the remote control are not working, try replacing the batteries. Be sure objects are not blocking the line of sight to the TV.
NOTE: Ensure that you are using the correct remote control and no operational settings are affecting it. If only some functions are working, try to un-register and re-register the magic remote again.
Follow the instructions about How to Re-register. If all the steps above fail, then the remote control will need to be replaced. Check our Replace Remote options below. You can use your magic remote to control other compatible devices in your home. You don't need to keep multiple remote controls for your setup box, home theater or soundbar.

Press the OK Scroll Wheel key on the remote to pair it. After you have successfully paired the magic remote to the TV, you can re-enable Bluetooth on your other devices.

lg remote power light stays on can't on even with good batteries
Apr 11, 1 0 0. Can't operate my LG remote power light stays on. Jun 14, 4, 2 14, Most likely a key is stuck, or liquid spill? Buy a used one from eBay. You must log in or register to reply here.Have been in such a problem where you have saved your money with the aim of buying a good LG TV for your home table room?
Then just after you begin using the device then problems start knocking one after the other and what follows are worries that you wasted your money?
LED TV problems are horrible. They deprive you of entertainment. And they take away your spare time. But no worries. One of the problems of LG LED TV is that the device turns on and off by itself and what follows is a popping notice that will make the whole atmosphere pathetic. This problem is followed by changing of colors like green, light which are blinked for about 2 to 4 seconds.
This is a problem that many consumers have faced for many days of usage and yet the problem has not been tackled in the new devices as we have continued to be hear complains all over in the internet forums and blogs. Usually, this problem is caused by the unit that supplies power inside the TV. And when issues develop with that unit, the TV can suddenly stop working — due to a lack of power input. There are many reasons why the power supply unit fails. Fortunately, repairing is simple.
All you have to do is find a technician with good soldering skills to help you! Can you imagine that you are entirely relying on one TV channel the whole day? That would be boring and you would not like it automatically. Another problem of LG LED TV is the complication of the fuses, they go bad now and then and what follows, and the device begins producing popping sounds and turning black in color on the screen.
You cannot predict when these fuses will go bad, but suddenly when you are enjoying your leisure time watching an interesting program, the devices turns black followed by a popping sound.
It would be pathetic. Here, you should disconnect the TV from AC power. After that, click and hold down the power button on the television for 10 seconds. A minute after that, reconnect the TV to the AC power supply, then click the power button again. From there, try to check for sound output by connecting external speakers.
Hence if you buy the device with the hope to access the internet through Wi-Fi, oops you better thinks about another device for your next budget. All you need to do is check whether the issue is in the router or the television.
If the TV lacks any problems in establishing a mobile device connection, then the router is likely at fault.Deals Amazon deals Bargain threads Classified adverts.

TV Screen Is Black – Powers ON But No Picture – What To Check?
Klikker Active Member. Paulo Henrique said:. Last edited: Sep 13, Klikker said:. As I understand it if the remote was in the box it should work, nothing else to do to set it up. If the remote was bought separately you will need an LG wi fi dongle as sets that do not have the remote in the box do not have motion control built in.
It gets confusing as last years models need last years remote and will not work so before you spend any money I suggest you contact LG's help line and confirm what is needed for your model. I should add the remote is Bluetooth and does not show it is working when buttons are pressed.

Problems registering at LG web site! Started by Pikeyp Mar 28, Replies: 0.I have repaired a quite a few faulty remote controls and most often they are repairable. Getting a programmable remote is one way to solve the problem but the functionality and locations of the keys may not be satisfactory. Repairing your remote should give you more satisfaction as you get to keep the remote you are used to.
Common faults are: some buttons not working, not working at all, corroded battery terminals. Often buttons are sticky because of some dirt accumulated over the years from the sticky little hands of your kids? The hardest part of repair is often to open the covers. You do not need much experience in electronics repair to repair a remote. Also it is perfectly safe as there is no way to get an electric shock as they work with batteries.
Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Check your batteries first or buy new batteries. Once you have good batteries, you can test with a digital camera by pushing the buttons and having camera on and pointing to the infrared led.
You should see red light if the remote is working. If no light comes up you obviously have a dead remote but do not despair and procede to the next step. Remove the screws if any. Sometimes screws may be hidden under a sticker or rubber feet. Often there are no screws at all but just plastic catches hidden so you have to be clever to open it without breaking the case. Use something blunt and flat toclick the covers open. This is often a challenge but should not be too difficult.
Since you are using a digital camera you might as well take pictures of the disassembly so re-assemly will be easier. Did you take a picture of the keyppad layout? Sometimes keypad is just one rubber membrane but sometimes the keys fall away like pieces of a Lego puzzle.
And if the buttons are marked with numbers and functions you may struggle to re-assemble them in right order?
Problem with registering lg magic remote
Use a small plastic takeaway box or similar to store the bits so you don't lose parts. Remotes are often dropped on the floor and may develope dry joints on the battery contacts or circuit board. Inspect the contacts and circuit board under good light with a magnifying lense or if lucky you might have a microscope or just a very good eyesight?
