LG 55UF685V(-ZB FW: 04.20.70) - Magic Remote AN-MR600 not working

Question

I saw this TV for €749. Since someone answered on amazon.de that the Magic Remmote will work I decided to grab this TV.

Now my Magic Remote arrived and I have problems registering it with the TV. When I press the wheel-button I get te message "Failed to register Magic Remote. Please try again".

I already tried changing the location from Austria to Germany (as described in another thread here), hoping to get a firmware update to resolve this problem.

Would be great if anyone could help me to make it work!

Hi

 

Did you try the below?

 

Registering the Magic Remote Control

You must register the Magic Remote Control on your Smart TV when you use it for the first time. To register your Magic Remote Control using the Wheel (OK)button, perform the following steps:

  1. Turn on your Smart TV.

  2. Wait for 10 seconds while your Smart TV turns on.

  3. Aim the Magic Remote Control at the Smart TV, and then press the Wheel (OK)button. A message appears after the Magic Remote Control is registered.

    • If the Magic Remote Control does not register, turn your Smart TV off and on again and repeat the registration process.

If the Magic Remote Control is not functioning properly, initialize it and then re-register it. To use the Smart Home (remote_home.png) button and BACK (remote_back.png)button on the Magic Remote Control to re-register the Magic Remote Control, perform the following steps:

  1. Hold down the Smart Home(remote_home.png) button and BACK (remote_back.png)button on the Magic Remote Control for 5 seconds to initialize the Magic Remote Control.

  2. Aim the Magic Remote Control at your Smart TV, and then press the Wheel (OK)button. A message appears after the Magic Remote Control is registered.

NOTE

Aim the Magic Remote Control at your Smart TV, and then hold down the BACK (remote_back.png)button for 5 seconds to re-register the Magic Remote Control.

      Just got off the phone to lg support. I was told the web browser shuts down when attempting to stream video ON PURPOSE! Furthermore, once you stream anything from the internet, the cache fills up, does not clear, and prevents the installed apps from functioning properly.  I was told that the OS is a web browser NOT a web streaming service and if they allow customers access to stream video they will be in breach of their contractual agreement to the companies who have apps on the TV. This clearly doesn't happen on tablets or phones, so their logic for creating a sub par product is utter bollocks. I specifically asked the salesman if I could stream video from the internet and was told absolutely yes.  (Of note: I need to watch presentations by medical professionals, NOT ILLEGAL CONTENT. Ted talks is an example)  When I pointed this out to Lg customer service they re-iterated that a web browser does not confer the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

      I recently purchased a second remote (LG AN-MR650A Magic Remote Control ) so both my wife and I have a remote to control our OLED 55B7A TV.  However, when I paired the second remote then the first remote no longer controls sound.  Both remotes appear to have other functionalities but the sound control only works with one remote.  Any ideas on how to resolve this issue?

      Every time I use the scrollwheel on the amazing LG remote for the 55" OLED55B7V TV nothing happens, until I realize I am scrolling in the wrong direction.
      For everyone not accustomed with PCs, ie the whole mobile generation and all of us on the Apple platform, the so called "natural" scrolling aka "inverted scrolling" is what feels right. If I want the content on my screen to go up to reveal more content, I scroll the wheel up. On PCs and WebOS, you scroll the viewport, not the content, so you have to scroll down to make the content move up.
      If it would be up to me, the default should be natural scrolling, but at least give me an option to change the scrolling behaviour! For me, the current behaviour is just jarring each and every time I want to scroll!
      Moving a viewport is the old paradigm. Moving the content, as you do every day on your phones and tablets and PCs with touch screens, is how we interact now.

      Still getting the oft reported out of memory error with latest 2017 smart tv's running very latest WebOS and App updates. So annoying LG cannot fix this problem which as been ongoing since at least 2015.ti little more than trite suggestions to re-start the TV or remove unused Apps etc.
      Problem seems to be either insufficient memory installed to run WebOS apps properly or a major problem with WebOS ability to properly manage what memory there is.
      Combined with pitifull lack of USB ports quickly occupied with hard drive if recording and time machine functionality is required the 'smart' features seem poor compared to other manufacturers now.
