How to Fix LG TV Remote Not Working

Before resetting the remote, try the following basic troubleshooting solutions to fix the issues associated with your remote.

Change the Batteries

One of the common reasons for LG TV remotes not working is dead batteries. The basic life of an average battery remote is up to 6 months. So, whenever the remote is not working properly, you have to check the battery first. Buy a new set of alkaline batteries and insert them into the battery compartment. Once you insert them, the remote will work properly.

Remove the Obstacles

If the signal between your TV and the remote is disturbed by some objects or electrical devices, the required TV will fail to react to your command. So, make sure that there are no hindrances between your LG TV and your remote.

Re-register the remote

If the remote is still not working, try to pair it again. By any chance, your remote would have been disconnected from your LG Smart TV. Long press the Home and back buttons at the same time until the red light blinks on the remote. Now, press the wheel button on your LG TV remote. Once it is done, you will receive a notification saying that your Magic remote is registered.

Buy a Replacement Remote

When your LG TV remote does not work even after executing the above-mentioned troubleshooting step, it is better to buy a new replacement remote instead of creating some hardware damage to it.

Use LG ThinQ App

The LG ThinQ app also serves as a temporary remote to control your LG Smart TV. For that, connect the LG ThinQ app installed on Android or iPhone and LG TV to the same WiFi network. Launch the app and connect with your TV easily.

Once paired, you can see all the controls similar to what you have on the remote. Using that, you can control your LG Smart TV until you receive your replacement remote.

Tip! Enable quick access on LG TV and access all your favorite apps from the home screen with a single click.
