LG Magic remote MR18BA not working


oscarodas

Question

Magic remote stopped working after tv was taken to a different place, I have reset the tv a few times, remote has new batteries, the method to de-register and register doesn't work, all buttons work except the ones labelled: Netflix, amazon, Live zoom, and the microphone. When i press the microphone button I get the following message: Press OK to register theMagic Remote with your tv, when I do it I get the message: Only specific remote model can be paired.

My tv is an Oled55B6T, and according to LG the magic Remote MR18BA.

If is not possible to get it working I would like to get rid of the annoying message: "Only specific remote model can be paired." It shows up everytime I change channels or do any other funtion like choosing to watch Netflix or Youtube, etc.

@oscarodas The magic remotes split the button functions between regular Infra-Red (for power, volume and the other defined buttons that you have that work), but the others rely on BlueTooth technology, similar to how a PC Wireless Mouse communicates. There is a very small circuit board inside (about 2 inches square), that is a Combo card, supplying both the Bletooth AND the WiFi functions. I had mine fail a few months back, after a storm. I have a spare card, but I have not bothered to replace it yet, as I found a workaround (see below):

I downloaded the "LG TV PLUS" app into my smart phone, and it works as a very good replacement for those lost functions. I beleive this works for most Android and Apple phones. Small learning cureve, but generally easy to use, so long as your TV is on the home network. If the card has failed completely (so no WiFi as well), try using a LAN cable direct to your router.

@td47. Thank you, I installed the app and it works like a charm, i will test it a little more, but still I have the problem of the constant message at the top of the screen remaining me about the remote, I have tried every possible fix suggested in the net, even pulled the remote apart and cleaned with alcohol wipes to no avail, do you think that buying a new remote will solve the problem? they range from 54 to 77 AU. When you mention the small card, you mean the one inside the remote?  Thanks.

@oscarodas While it IS possibly  a remote fault, I would think it is MUCH more likely to be the Bluetooth functionality failing inside the TV. The little combo card is inside the TV. If you know what you are doing, it is easy to replace (take back cover off TV, locate the little card, unplug cable, carefully put in the new card, plug the little ribbon cable plug back in). If still under warrantee, try to get it done via LG service.

      Subtitles aren't appearing for certain shows(eg. Big Bang theory).NO option to change audio language,video quality. Certain shows are like watching snapshots at 10s interval(check Homeland). Cricket matches are having slow frames per second although i have good bandwidth and fps on my tv(LG UJ652T).  NO VIP option also.

      New 4K Ultra Short Throw Model Delivers Immersive Cinematic Experiences
      with Sharp, Vibrant Images and Boasts Stylish, Modern Design

      SEOUL, May 20, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its premium CineBeam 4K laser projector lineup with the remarkable, new Ultra Short Throw (UST) laser projector (model HU915QE), the follow up to the HU715Q released earlier this year. Designed with serious movie lovers in mind, LG’s latest flagship home cinema solution can produce a stunningly sharp 90-inch image when placed just 5.6 centimeters from the wall or a massive 120-inch picture at a distance of only 18.3 centimeters.1
      Thanks to the HU915QE’s combination of advanced projection technology, users no longer need a large, dedicated space to enjoy sublime cinematic experiences at home. Boasting 3,700 ANSI lumens and an impressive 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, LG’s latest projector delivers vibrant, realistic pictures that ensure maximum viewing immersion. By adopting LG’s evolved, three-channel laser technology, which employs a separate light source for each primary (RGB) color, this new model is able to offer more vivid images even during the day compared to other conventional products with the single light source technology.2
      An excellent all-rounder, the HU915QE really excels when playing movies and streaming content in 4K HDR, using HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping to analyze and adjust image brightness every single frame. LG’s Brightness Optimizer II further elevates the new CineBeam projector’s performance, automatically adjusting brightness levels according to ambient light conditions so that users can enjoy clear, vivid picture quality whether the room is well lit or as dark as a movie theater. Additionally, Adaptive Contrast adjusts the projector’s light sources to provide a superb contrast for each individual scene.
      With LG’s intuitive webOS smart platform onboard, the HU915QE lets users watch all their favorite shows from streaming services3 such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, YouTube and Apple TV without an additional device. They can also wirelessly stream content via Screen Mirroring, Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth.4 On top of that, its built-in 2.2 Channel, 40W speaker system enhances the viewing experience with strong, rich audio. For more powerful, theater-like surround sound, users can effortlessly connect up to two LG Bluetooth speakers at once.5
      The new CineBeam projector also makes a stylish addition to any room with its eco-friendly ‘Re-wool’ designed by renowned Danish textile company, Kvadrat. Made from 45 percent recycled wool, this material has become a favorite of design- and sustainability-conscious companies worldwide, used in products as diverse as furniture and premium audio solutions. Thanks to its muted, natural color and clean design, the HU915QE blends in well with luxurious home interiors.
      “Featuring LG’s latest projection technologies, the new CineBeam projector delivers outstanding 4K picture quality from a short distance,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “An excellent choice for movie lovers seeking authentically cinematic experiences at home, the HU915QE combines superb performance with convenient features, easy installation and a sophisticated, space-friendly design.”
      LG CineBeam 4K laser projector (model HU915QE) with the latest UST technology will be available in the first half of 2022, starting with key markets in North America, Europe and the Middle East, with Latin America and Asia markets to follow. 
      Specifications:
      HU915QE Resolution 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) Brightness 3,700 ANSI Lumens Light Source 3 Channel Laser Lamp Life 20,000 hours Brightness Optimizer II Auto Brightness + Adaptive Contrast + Iris Mode Throw Ratio 0.19 (100 inches @ 9.8cm) Screen Size 90-120 inches Keystone Correction 4/9/15 Point Warping webOS Yes (Global) Wireless Android / iOS Integrated Speaker 2.2 Channel, 40W Inputs HDMI x 3 with eARC / USB 2.0 x 2 Size (W x D x H) 680 x 347 x 128 mm  # # #

      3 Internet connection and subscription to streaming services required. Supported services may differ by country.
