LG Magic Remote Isn’t Working How To Repair

Firstly, if this is a new Magic Remote that you have not used before, then try to connect it to LG TV.

Turn the TV on and turn off another remotely supported technique to avoid errors, then put Magic Remote near the TV and hold the MUTE or OK button for 5-10 seconds. Then, you will see a message on the screen of your TV that Magic Remote was connected.

Secondly, if you have already used this Magic Remote but it has stopped working, the problem may be that the remote has been discharged. In this case, you need to replace the batteries with new ones. It seems to be a trivial tip, but often, my mates forget that the remote can be discharged. So the problem can be so easy-to-solve.

Thirdly, the problem may be in software lag. I can’t say for sure why this problem occurs sometimes, but your Magic Remote may not work due to this problem. To fix it, you will need to disconnect the LG Magic Remote and reconnect it more.
To do this, press the two BACK and HOME buttons on the remote at the same time. Hold buttons for 10 seconds, and your remote will be disconnected.
You can then reconnect your TV to the remote control, as described at the beginning of this paragraph. It is better to do all these actions next to the TV. We recommend that you do all the steps on the remote control next to the TV set.

If none of the above has helped, then most likely, the problem is more serious. In this case, it is better to contact the service center to get qualified help.
