Unpair Magic Remote while tv is off.


MagicR

Question

Hello,

I unpaired the Magic Remote of my LG OLED 55B7 tv by pressing "Back+Recents" buttons on the remote, while it was off and not connected to a power outlet. The remote control blinked 3 times.

Then I turned my tv on and the tv wasn't recognizing the remote, so by pressing the "Ok" button in the remote, the tv paired with it and displayed a message confirming it.

My question is about the mechanism in all of this: since my tv was off, how did the tv itself forget the remote?

Is the pairing process stored both in the tv and remote?

Will there be some "left over" pairing stored in the tv related to the procedure while it was off?

Many thanks.

@MagicR As this is Bluetooth Protocol, it is a bit like a wireless mouse and its dongle, but smarter. The paired device codes are stored on both devices, as you might have TWO LG TV's, so each TV would need to know which Magic Remote to listen and respond to.

Hello td47, so the codes are stored in both devices (remote and tv).  Since the tv was off while I unpaired the remote, I understand that by doing the procedure the remote forgot the code.

My question is how the tv forgot the code since it was off?

Many thanks td47.

I mean OFF as in unplugged.
Hi! I believe that about this pairing process with the web os tv, there is a similar pairing code both on the tv and the magic remote, whenever you turn the tv of or unplug it or plug and turning it on the code is still the same has the one in the magic remote, when you unplug the web os tv has I said the code remains the same, but when you unpaired the magic remote the pairing code in the magic remote is reset so it change, while the code in the web os tv remains the same, then when you plug it back and turn it on the tv and use the magic remote, it send a signal or command to the tv and the tv does not recognize the magic remote because the pairing code on the magic remote has been change because of the unpaired. Therfore the web os tv show a message to clarify that pairing the magic remote is needed, so you pair again the magic remote and the web os tv so the code on both devices matches again, therefore working together again.

Sorry I use to many word to explain this someone else would have done a better work
Thanks for reading hope you understand what I mean. Have a great day. God bless you.
Bye !

Hello Steel, thank you for your answer and I understood it.

Yeah I believe something similar to your theory.

My theory is that the remote does an "active pairing", storing the tv id. And the tv does a "passive pairing" of the remote id.

When unpairing while the tv is off, the remote actively deletes the pairing information. When the tv is on, the remote sends a "blank" pairing information and the tv receives it and... clears the pairing info of the remote?

      Hi all, I'm new to the forum(s).  I have looked at discussions on the net and can't seem to find a definitive answer to my rather simple question.  I purchased this TV from COSTCO in AZ 2019.  I 'cut the cord by installing a TV antenna and using the NETFLIX and Prime streaming apps pre installed on the TV. Now my question: Can this TV record OTA TV stations, ABC, NBC, FOX etc.??
      From what I have read US models cannot record while ones sold in say the UK or other foreign countries have a built in recording feature.  I have seen articles saying press the Q123 button on the magic remote or press the center wheel to record what you are currently watching.  There is no Q123 button anbd pressing the center wheel does not record anything.  What if I bought a UK version of the remote would the TV now record?  Any help greatly appreciated.

      Any reason I can't find HBO Max on my LG OLED C6? WebOS is fully updated. I was told it was available on WebOS now but it's nowhere. If it's bc my TV has an old WebOS I'd like to know if I can install a newer one or of the hardware simply isn't compatible and I need to buy something like Fire stick just so I can have HBO Max (f'in absurd if that's the case)

      Dears, 
      While trying to set up universal control for my surround sound (so I dont need the extra remote) I've been facing the following difficulty.
       
      When I go through the steps in device connector I never get the option for set universal control. After simplink  (which is off) I just have the option "done" no next to set up manufacturer to control it via the "universal" remote function on my magic remote.
       
      Device: Oled55c7v-z + magic remote
      Tried already:
      Factory reset, change service location, adding different devices (never does the option appear), hard power cycle, and disconnecting and connecting the devices.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      When trying to use apps that need an internet connection I get an error (-106) saying that there is no connection. When I go to settings -> Network -> Wifi it says that wifi is turned off and I need to turn it on to see available networks. Well there's no switch or option to turn wifi on. I've had it connected to wifi before. Also sometimes it disconnects and then I have to go back in and tell it to connect again. This is the first time its said the wifi was off.
      I did a google search and the results that came up were for WebOs 1.0, even though it was written in 2017, and I have WebOs 3.0. It said hold the settings button until a box appears in the top right of the screen and input 0 0 0 0 then adjust the baud rate. First no box shows up on the 3.0 and two its not the baud rate I'm trying to adjust.
      I tried calling customer support to get to technical support. The automated system is garbage by the way. Then I found out they are only open Monday through Friday as if customers never have a problem on the weekend.
      This is my third stop looking for an answer. This problem is causing my dislike of LG products to grow even more. So if anyone has had this problem and figured it out I would greatly appreciate your help and thanks in advance for your time and help.
