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.

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?

      I have a UK6300 LG TV. It has always worked faultlessly. However it now will not show the pointer unless I restart it and then it only there of only for 20 seconds and then it is gone. The LAN cable notification constantly disconnects and reconnects. The Web Browser no longer opens on my selected page. The Software version is the latest and when I tried to manually update the software in case the auto update got corrupted it will not recognize the USB drive as having the software on it. The software browser version is 05.50.15.
      Any ideas what to do. I have two other LG TV's and all work perfectly.

      I have a  LG OLED55C14LB WebOS TV in the same room as my xubuntu desktop computer and router.

      I have installed Gnome Network Displays on the Linux PC and both machines are on the same 5G network.

      When I connect the PC to the TV via WiFi the TV puts up a 'cancel' option and no option to connect. The Network display app only has an option to 'Return' which closes the connection.

      If I do nothing and wait the connection times out and returns to the TV program. The TV is obviously waiting for permission to connect.

      I cannot see any way to 'accept' the connection via the TV remote. Can anyone tell me how to accept the connection?
      In addition, is it possible to have the TV remember the WiFi password? Passwords are complex nowadays and it is a pain to keep having to input it. This make casting your desktop a chore.

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.

      The specs for the magic remote promise "Voice Recognition with Intuitive Mouse Like Pointing and Wheel Control". I think that would be nice. The current implementation of scrolling via the wheel on the magic remote is not intuitive. Why would I move my thumb up to pull the text shown on the screen down to the bottom?
      Question is, can we please get natural scrolling for WebOS 5.5.0 and newer? Some option in the settings would be fine. The current "unnatural" scrolling is a major obstacle in usability for me, and the main reason to not buy LG again.
