Select "Screen Share" on the main menu then "Delete Pairing History".  The first time you connect it will ask to "Accept" the connection  and stores the  Pairing History  but for some computers the  the second time you try to connect it fails possibly due to the way the Pairing History was stored on the LG TV.   This only occurs for some computers, not others, indicating there may be some issue with the code written to store  Pairing History  on the LG TV so you must delete the Pairing History to get that computer to connect again.  P.S. I work for the company that invented Bluetooth.

Hi. I have a LG uk6750pld TV and am not able to connect my Samsung galaxy note 20 ultra 5g to it. I keep getting the same message "unable to connect to screen share. Please try again.". 

What makes things worse is that any other phone is able to connect to it but mine! 

My wife had an iPhone 7 and was able to connect no bother. And I can't!! 

She has moved to iPhone 13 and STILL manage to connect no bother. 

What the heck is wrong with my phone???😡

Any help appreciated. 


Ps: phone has latest update so has the TV.

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      Is it just me or is the plex app just unusable on webos.  When I try to select dvr items with the magic remote they just don’t play.  I am not sure if this is a plex issue or an lg webos issue.  Anyone know which it is?

      Good Morning, There is a recommended minimum distance between the TV and the viewer. I bought an LG OLED C155 last month and it is uncomfortable from a distance. It was my mistake. I bought it without worrying about visual comfort. Is it possible to reduce the screen's usable area to simulate a screen size TV of 48 inches or less, accepting the black borders that would be created? It would be something similar to a custom aspect ratio. The idea would be to be able to simulate a smaller screen size than the purchased equipment. other-bigger->65->55->48->other-less

      I connected an hard drive to my LG OLED TV via USB. My TV is connected to my home network via Ethernet, as is my computer.  
      I would like to access the hard disk from my computer. Is this possible? How can I do this with Windows 10?
      Note that I don't want to connect my hard drive directly to my computer but to my TV (because my home network is quite unstable).
      I thank you in advance for all your help.
