At times, we tend to connect external devices with our LG Smart TV. In those times, we need to change the input source on our LG TV to access those devices. If you really want to change the inputs on your LG TV, you have three possible ways. The simplest method to change it on your TV is by using the TV remote. Sometimes you might miss your TV remote, or it may not work. In such conditions, you can change it via the ThinQ mobile app, or you can change it manually on your TV.
How to Change Input Source on LG Smart TV
#1. Turn on your LG TV.
#2. Wait till the Home screen appears.
#3. By using your remote, navigate to the Inputs icon at the top right corner of the screen and select it.
#4. Select the source you need.

On certain remote controls, you will have the Input button. By pressing the button, you can select the source you want.

When your TV remote is lost or broken, use the buttons provided on the TV to change the source.
#1. With the power button on your TV, turn on your LG TV without a remote.
