Issues with your LG TV remote can either be hardware issues, your settings, the connection between the remote and TV, or dirt under the buttons. Troubleshooting the remote will fix most issues, but sometimes the TV needs to be reset or the remote needs to be cleaned or replaced.
The LG Magic Remote may not work if it is not paired properly, has old batteries, a disrupted IR signal or is far away from the TV. If the remote still doesn’t work after it has been reset and re-paired, and all other issues have been corrected, the remote may be defective and need to be replaced.
