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 [emoji28] 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 ![emoji109]

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’ve got an OLED 55C1 with webOS 6.0 and a service remote in South America. 
       
      I’ve been able to find working area codes for almost all regions using the service remote based on previous posts and tables. 
       
      Of most use to me were:
      Brazil: 26895 (local DTV transmission settings) /22800 (BR/US DTV transmission settings)
      US: 1843 / 1793 / 22287
      UK/EU/Turkey: 3122
      AU Australia: 767
      JP Japan: 23439
      I’ve also found working codes for China (CN), Taiwan (TW), Hog Kong (HK), Philippines (PH), Australia, NZ & South Asia incl. India (AJ), certain African and Middle Eastern countries (JA or JA ME IL regions: note Israel is not an option even though IL appears in the code) , Canada (CA), Mexico (MX), Panama and Central America (PA), Ecuador (EC), Colombia (CO), Peru (PE), Chile (CL), and Argentina (AR).
      Notably absent were working codes for;
      Israel (IL)
      Korea (KR)
      Russia and CIS countries (RU CIS)
      Eastern Europe (ETC?)
      Does anyone know the working area option service codes for these countries?
      I am mostly interested in working IL and KR codes.
       
      thank you so much!

      My TV has stopped recognising the live TV signal from the aerial since the OS updated recently. The aerial works fine when plugged into other devices but when plugged into the TV it doesn’t recognise the signal for days on end. When this happens, it will no longer allow me to do a signal test via the settings (the option is greyed out). I’m guessing it’s either a) a problem with the input (hardware) or; b) a problem with the OS (software).

      My remote and tv were working perfectly fine until my power button wouldn’t turn my tv off. Every other button worked except the power button so I changed the batteries and nothing changed. So then I pressed the home and back button thing and it de-registered my remote. So when I press ok to re-register my remote nothing was working on the remote at all. The power light still turns on with every button I press but will not connect back to the tv. So I then download the thinkQ app and oroceed to reset my tv. Which was probably the worst mistake I could make because now my tv is stuck on “press the ok(wheel) button on your remote” and cannot detect the remote what so ever. I keep calling customer care but they keep telling me to buy a new remote which I don’t think is the problem since it works on my other lg tvs in the home. I’m stuck with a tv that won’t display anything but press ok(wheel) button on your remote.

      Hi.
      What can I do to get my TV to use the full broadband speed that I've got available.  My tv is a 55EC930V and is using a wired connection to my router.
      My broadband is currently running at 125Mbps.  When I use any other devices such as a laptop, mobile phone, etc the speed using fast.com returns anything between 120 to 130 MBps.
      But, when I use the web browser on the TV, it always maxes out at 33Mbps.  This value is reported by fast.com.
      If I use the speed test in the Netflix app, this returns approx 29Mbps.  I never get anything higher, so what's limiting it?  The same problem occurs for YouTube and that's the only other App that I've got installed.
      If the network board in the TV is supposed to be 10-100Mbps, why don't I get 100 Mbps?  I know I won't get 125Mbps because LG never puts 1Gbps in any of it's TVs.
