@Tony Levy Most of the "magic remotes" use 2 different technologies to support the buttons. Some use regular "IR" (Infra-Red) like standard remotes, while other buttons (like the HOME button, and the ballistic "red cursor") use Bluetooth (like a wireless PC Mouse).

Test that your Bluetooth functionality is working on the TV side by pressing the Home button. If it works OK, and you can select your TV APPS with the left and right, then the Bluetooth side is working, and the issue is likely to be the remote itself, possibly the ballistic motion detector "chip" inside it.

If the Home button does NOT work, check out how to Re-Pair the remote with the TV Bluetooth. Try this if pairing is the issue:

Many thanks much appreciated 

I am beginning to suspect its the actual remote that has become faulty as when I take the power lead out of the plug socket wait 15 seconds and plug back in the red cursor is working however it is not working as it usually does and then this morning after the TV being in standby mode all the the red cursor was not working again. I turned the TV off from the plug socket and when I switched back on the cursor was working.

@Tony Levy That is interesting that a power off makes it work again. When the remote cursor function is failing, does the HOME button still work? Can you also select your different APPS (e.g. YouTube, or Netflix etc)?  If thos are also failing, then the Bluetooth Module in the TV is failing in some way, or drops the "pairing" after the TV goes into standby. Some users are posting that some LG TV models suffer from this little internal combo (Bluetooth & WiFi) module can get too warm, and drops the pairing of the remote. Is there anything under the TV (such as an AV amplifier etc.) that might make the issue worse, with heat rising INTO the TV above it?

Hi Yes home button still works as does Netflix although on Friday night was watching Emily in Paris and it was buffering badly but last night it was fine on Netflix and Amazon prime but cursor was not working. Just turned on my TV and cursor is not working again Home button is working  and Netflix is working.

I have a sonos system in a compartment underneath the TV but that has been there since I put the TV on the unit over 18 months ago, its very strange and very annoying.

Do you think the remote is failing? I have changed the batteries but its made no difference, have just turned thge TV off from the plug waiting 15 seconds plugged back in and turned on and cursor is working again

      Hi,
      I have an LG OLED55B7A that has been rebooting randomly ever since I updated it to webOS 6.00.05 about 6 months ago.  I have noted there is a new webOS version 6.00.20 available.   Has anyone here had the same rebooting problem, and if so, did the latest webOS correct the issue?
      In general, my setup has the LG tv doing as little as possible - it is simply a display for my Roku box via my AVR, as the TV's interface and apps slowly became completely unusable about a year after purchase.  So, no ethernet, no WiFi, all services turned off, etc., and this helped with all of the performance issues, except the rebooting. 
       
      @ LG :  if you ever read this - you have done a TERRIBLE job of managing the software on these TVs.  webOS started off as a real alternative to all of the external set top boxes, but now, I will *never* *ever* buy another LG TV again, and I tell everyone I know to avoid them.  Worst product management in the consumer electronics industry in the past 10 years.
      Thanks fellow sufferers for any tips.
      Rob

      In a unique initiative to address food insecurity and spread kindness across the United States, LG is working with global nonprofit Lasagna Love to positively impact communities by connecting neighbors through homemade lasagnas.
      LG USA enlisted the help of celebrity chefs and foodies to kick off the . They will be pitching in to bake lasagnas and posting their experience across their social media channels to inspire others to volunteer and keep the cooking challenge going.

      The campaign, which launched on Nov. 8 in time for the season of giving, has a goal of delivering 15,000 meals and connecting people in their communities throughout the USA. The social media campaign encourages others to join Lasagna Love’s mission of addressing the incredible rise in food insecurity among families and providing a simple act of kindness to those in need of a helping hand.

      LG believes in empowering home cooks and providing them with the innovative tools they need to make the most of their time in the kitchen. Through the partnership with Lasagna Love, LG will be sharing recipes and cooking tips for LG’s InstaView ranges to motivate consumers to get involved and give them all the tools they need to make and gift the perfect lasagna.

      “We’ve all been in a place of needing support, whether it’s a family struggling with food insecurity, a neighbor feeling isolated, or a friend who could use a little encouragement, we hope to inspire others this holiday season to spread Lasagna Love’s mission and connect people in their communities,” says Gail Conroy, senior director of marketing, LG Electronics USA.

      Lasagna Love’s mission is simple: feed families, spread kindness and strengthen communities. According to CEO and Founder Rhiannon Menn, “Lasagna Love was created through the simple act of one family making a home-cooked meal for another family in need. As we continue to scale our mission of spreading kindness, what’s most inspiring is how we’re making life a little better not only for the families receiving a meal, but also for the volunteers who are cooking.
      “We’re thrilled to be partnering with an innovative company like LG that truly understands the power in this one simple act of kindness and wants to help us reach even further,” she says.
