Setting up the remote control to the TV

After purchasing the remote control, it must be “tied” to the TV receiver for collaboration. To do this, you need to install the batteries inside the device, and then point the accessory at the TV panel, press the wheel and hold it for some time until a notification about the registration of the device appears. If nothing happens, you need to restart the Smart TV receiver.

To use the remote control for control, you need to shake it slightly so that the pointer appears on the display. On some models, you need to press the wheel in the center of the remote.

In the event that malfunctions occur, and the TV receiver does not interact well with the Magic Remote, you need to press the “Home” button and hold it for a few seconds to break the connection between the devices. After that, you will need to reconfigure the remote control again.

Remote control selection rules

The need to purchase Magic Remote may arise if only a regular remote control is included with the Smart TV, as well as in cases where the old remote control is broken or lost.

It is necessary to choose a new accessory based on the needs of the user. If he does not use the Smart-functions of the TV receiver, it is enough to purchase a regular remote control. branded or from third-party manufacturers, which will cost an order of magnitude cheaper. It should be remembered that it will be much more difficult to connect non-original universal remotes to the TV receiver, since you will need to manually enter and configure the codes in order to synchronize the two devices or start the automatic selection of the appropriate encoding. In addition, when buying such a remote control, you need to make sure that it is really suitable for a certain modification of the Smart device.

Instructions for use

Each Magic Remote comes with instructions for use. If it was not there, or the manual is lost, you can download this document on the official website of the manufacturer in the “Support” section.

Types and features of remotes for LG Smart TVs

The first LG Smart TVs were equipped with a conventional remote control, with which it was not very convenient to work with applications, play, access the Internet, and also communicate on social networks. Modern models of “smart” technology are supplied with two remotes for the LG Smart TV: normal and Magic Remote. The second accessory is designed for comfortable use of Smart-functionality and easy navigation in the TV panel menu, therefore it is recommended to learn how to use it if these advantages are important to the user. All the features of this device will be discussed in our material.

Features of Smart Remote for LG

To fully master the capabilities of the LG Smart Remote, you need to study its instructions for use, as well as find out what this or that button is for. Let’s consider these aspects in detail.

Functionality

When using the classic remote control, moving between widgets, entering text, as well as any other actions in the Smart section of LG TV are performed by control arrows, which is very inconvenient and takes a long time. The purchase and use of Magic Remote greatly simplifies these steps. Firstly, it is equipped with a gyroscope and can be used as an electronic pointer. Some users prefer to use wireless mice instead of a remote control, but moving them on the sofa is not always effective, so you have to look for a hard surface, and when working with a pointer remote control this is not necessary. Alternatively, only an air mouse can be used, which allows you to control the TV receiver with hand gestures in the air. However, such a device has a rather high price, so it is easier to purchase a more functional Smart remote control.

Secondly, Magic Motion is equipped with voice control. Thanks to this option, you can not only open the necessary sections or widgets with sound commands, but also avoid entering text queries in the search bar of the web browser. you can simply say them with the remote control, which is much faster and more convenient.

In addition to the main buttons that are on a regular remote control, there are additional buttons on the Smart remote. These are keys for quickly navigating to certain applications, a scroll wheel for easy web browsing in a browser, etc. Thus, Magic Remote is a remote control designed primarily for working with Smart-functions of a TV receiver, but at the same time it can work as a standard remote control.

Firmware update on LG Smart TV

There are several good reasons to modify your device’s firmware.

  • Optimization of software work. Some TVs with more functionality come with older firmware versions. Emerging failures and errors are eliminated by collecting information, releasing a corrected firmware of a new version.
  • Software response speed, channel switching speed, loading pages and movies, turning on programs, eliminating video player braking.
  • New features and capabilities of Smart TV.
  • Eliminate Smart TV problems. If Smart TV programs are not working properly, a black screen at startup, applications do not turn on, channels are interrupted and not resumed. One of the options to get rid of the problem is to update the installed platform and programs.

How to find the right version

Several firmware options are available for one TV model. To select the firmware, you need:

  • know the version of the currently installed firmware;
  • in the offered available updates, select the version with the exact match of the letter designation;
  • the numbers of the new version must not be less than the previous one.

How to find the right firmware version

At the moment, there are many resources on the Internet that offer “unique” firmware for Smart TVs. However, the consequences of installing a software product from questionable sites can be very dire. from partial to complete breakdown of a digital device.

Therefore, new firmware for TV receivers should be found on the official websites of manufacturing companies. For LG TVs, such an Internet site will be a resource located at http://www.LG.com/. The user just needs to go to this site to:

  • enter your TV model into the search bar;
  • activate the search button;
  • in the window that opens, click on the line “Support”;
  • go to the item “ON”.

If all these operations were carried out correctly, the screen will display the latest updates for your TV. We select the “latest” version of the binder, and then download and install the optimal Webos update on your TV in two available ways.

Through the Internet

The easiest way to update the old software version on your LG Smart TV is via the Internet. If your TV receiver has a stable connection to the network via a Wi-Fi router or a network cable, then feel free to pick up the remote control and proceed as follows:

  • go to the settings menu (the Settings button or the “Gear” icon on the screen);
  • select the button “General” (“Settings”);
  • go to the section “Information about the TV” (“Information about the product / service”);
  • activate the link “Check for updates”.

After that, the TV will independently connect to the official LG website to check for updates. If a new firmware version is not found, the following message will appear on the screen “Updates not found”.

Otherwise, the user will see the following notification “Update found” with a proposal to install this firmware version. If such a message appears on the screen, then we confirm our actions. using the remote control, we activate the “Update” button. We are waiting for the end of the process of installing a new shell, which should end with a reboot of the device.

It is strictly forbidden to disconnect the TV from the mains during the process of updating and installing the software in order to avoid the appearance of a system error and expensive repairs in the form of reinstalling the OS.

The update process can be made automatic if, after installing the new shell, go to the “Information about the TV” section again and check the box of the “Allow automatic update” button. After that, the TV receiver will independently check and install new firmware, notifying the user about its actions using the inscription on the screen. This alert will warn the owner of the TV that a new version of the software shell will be installed the next time the device is turned on.

How to update your LG Smart TV

From a flash drive

The second way to update your LG Smart TV looks a little more complicated. Indeed, to implement this process, the owner of a TV receiver will need not only a TV receiver and access to the network, but also a personal computer / laptop, as well as a “clean” (no recordings) USB drive with a capacity of one gigabyte or more.

In addition, with this OS update option, the user will have to find out the software version installed on the device and the model number of his device.

This is not at all difficult to do. We just pick up the remote control and go to the menu:

  • we activate “Settings”;
  • go to the “General” category;
  • click on the link “TV Information”.

It is in this paragraph that the model number and the version of the firmware currently installed on the Smart TV receiver will be indicated.

It is not necessary to record this data. Just do not turn off the TV so that the digital model number and software version are in front of your eyes.

  • We turn on the computer / laptop and go online through any browser.
  • We drive into the search bar the address of the official website of LG.
  • In the top menu of this site, look for the “Support” tab and activate the link “Software downloads and manual”.
  • In the search box, select the model of your TV.
  • Go to the very bottom of the opened window to activate the “Software Updates” button.

This section lists all existing software versions for your TV receiver. In this case, the most recent firmware is always at the top of the list that opens. Compare the number of this update with the version of the shell installed on your TV receiver.

If the numbers match, then there is no need to update the Smart TV software at the moment. If a new firmware is posted on the official website, then we act according to the step-by-step instructions:

  • download the archive of the new firmware from the official website to your computer desktop;
  • create a folder on the desktop called “LG_DTV”;
  • unpack the downloaded archive into the created folder;
  • connect the USB flash drive to the computer / laptop and open the “My Computer” tab to format the USB drive using the FAT-32 file system (recommended);
  • at the end of the formation, open the removable disk and drag the folder with the new firmware onto it.

After that, you can proceed to directly update the shell on the TV itself:

  • we remove the USB flash drive from the PC and insert the USB drive into the corresponding socket on the TV receiver, which at this moment it is desirable to turn off;
  • turn on the TV, on the screen of which the following notification “Found a new update” should appear;
  • we confirm the process of installing a new firmware by activating the “Install” button using the remote control;
  • at the end of the installation, the TV will reboot on its own, and after turning it on, a message about installing a new firmware version should appear in the upper right corner of the screen.

It is strictly forbidden to disconnect the Smart TV from electricity, remove the USB flash drive from the socket before the end of the process and click the buttons on the remote control during the software update via the USB drive in order to exclude the appearance of a serious system error, due to which you will have to reinstall the operating system.

The nuances of rebooting different models

As it is already clear from the above, the reboot process has some differences not only depending on the platform used in the Smart TV, but also on different versions of the same OS. In addition, not all modifications of LG smart TV equipment support the reset option. To rehabilitate such TVs, you will have to contact a service center, since only a qualified specialist can flash (update / reset) the problem OS.

Reboot can be done from the TV panel menu for LG, Samsung or other brands. The procedure differs not only on devices from different manufacturers, but also depending on the model range and year of manufacture of the device from one company.

If you experience a problem such as no picture on the screen or the remote control does not work, follow the procedure below to reset your TV. If problems persist, follow the factory reset procedure below: If an external USB device is connected to the TV, disconnect it from the TV before performing a factory reset.

Signs and Causes of Software Failures

The occurrence of errors in the operation of the software of LG TV sets can be manifested by the following symptoms:

  • long loading of a web browser or other application;
  • freezing of a running program;
  • blocking different IP addresses;
  • malfunction of the “wired” flash player;
  • lack of response to commands from the remote control and other signs.

Such symptoms can be caused by a number of reasons, the most common of which is the flashing of the Smart TV receiver. This phenomenon is simply explained. either the developer has released an unsuccessful version and is already working on fixing it, or the user downloaded alternative software from questionable resources, and not from the official website, and the “smart” device does not accept it. One more nuance is also possible: the firmware was updated automatically without the supervision of the owner of the equipment, and during the installation of the new version, a lack of built-in memory was detected, or an incorrect power supply took place. In these cases, a system crash also occurs.

Power surges or sudden power outages can also provoke software errors. In a single manifestation, these factors will not harm, and with a systematic occurrence, not only malfunctions of the entire system are possible, but also equipment failure. You can avoid the problem by connecting the Smart device to the mains through a surge protector.

If the user or his environment learns the capabilities of the Smart-TV receiver empirically, pressing all the keys of the remote control indiscriminately, this also entails a disruption in the operation of the OS. At the same time, it is almost impossible to figure out which action led to the blocking of the system.

The consequences of a factory reset

In most cases, when the above symptoms occur, only restarting LG Smart-TV can help. In this case, this term means two actions:

  • disconnecting equipment from the power supply for a short time;
  • factory reset.

In the first case, no fatal consequences will occur during restart, just small errors will be eliminated, running but unclosed applications and programs that take up RAM and slow down the process will be reset, and the session with the Network will be restarted, which is important if the web browser does not work correctly.

In the second case, all changes and settings made by the user will be reset to zero, and the factory parameters will be restored. But along with the client settings, all software errors (not hardware) will disappear. This process is considered an extreme measure, since after it you will have to perform the following actions again:

General order for Netcast operating systems

This platform is used by LG Smart TVs, released in the period 2010-2014, and some budget models of later production. The process of resetting the settings to the factory level on such a technique will look like this:

  • first, press the “Settings” button on the remote control to open “Settings”;
  • then you need to select the “Settings” section
  • then you need to find the item “Factory settings” in the presented list and click “OK”, confirming the reset.

At the end of this process, the Smart device will turn off, and after a short time it will turn on again and will be in the form in which the user purchased it. no changes, but also without errors.

General order for the webOS operating system

This operating system was installed on premium TVs in 2014 and later years of release, and now most modern models are running under its control. Such TV-receivers are rebooted in a slightly different way due to the different interface. So, to reset the settings, you need to enter the TV receiver menu by pressing the “Home” button on the remote control (with the image of the house), and then, depending on the version of the operating system, you need to go through one of the two paths below:

  • “Settings” (the Settings key on the remote control or the icon in the form of a gear on the screen), then “Advanced”, then “General” and at the end “Reset to Initial Settings”;
  • “Settings”, then “All settings” (a button with three vertical dots), then “General” and finally “Reset settings”.

After that, you should confirm your intention to reset the Smart TV receiver settings to factory settings by clicking on “OK”. During the initialization process, never disconnect the TV from the power supply.

The nuances of rebooting different models

As it is already clear from the above, the reboot process has some differences not only depending on the platform used in the Smart TV, but also on different versions of the same OS.

It should be borne in mind that the process of rebooting the television receiver, if interpreted as a reset, does not imply a return to the previous version of the software. the firmware will not change. Let’s go further. you will not be able to reboot the Smart-receiver using the “Power” key, which is responsible for activating and deactivating the equipment. To reset all operational processes, you will need to unplug the power cord from the outlet, and after 3-5 minutes, turn it back on. But at the same time, one condition should be met. when disconnected from the network, the TV should work.

And only if the described process did not help to solve the problem, you can proceed to resetting the settings. This procedure has some differences depending on the platform used in Smart TV: earlier Netcast or enhanced WebOS.
