      Boasting a 360Hz Refresh Rate and NVIDIA Reflex Response Time,
      the 25GR75FG Will be Unveiled at Major EMEA Esports Event Held in January

      SEOUL, Jan. 16, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) latest UltraGear gaming monitor (model 25GR75FG) has been named the official display of the League of Legends EMEA Championship (LEC) 2023. The new monitor will make its debut during the upcoming LEC season, which begins this weekend, supporting players from the region’s top teams as they battle it out for tournament honors. LG UltraGear is proud to continue its strong partnership with LEC, one of the world’s most popular esports leagues, and remains committed to fostering the growth of esports internationally.
      Designed for competitive esports, the latest LG UltraGear gaming monitor delivers outstanding picture quality and speed thanks to a 24.5-inch Full-HD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS display with a 360Hz refresh rate and 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response time. The performance of LG’s new gaming display is further boosted by the integration of NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, which minimizes screen-tearing for seamless visuals, and NVIDIA Reflex, which helps to reduce click-to-display latency for more precise control of the onscreen action. VESA Display HDR 400 certified, the 25GR75FG also ensures bright, clear images and has a 3-sided borderless design that helps increase players’ sense of immersion, making it easier to focus during fierce competition.
      As part of its ongoing partnership with LEC, LG has been providing the professional league with its world-class UltraGear gaming monitors since 2022. The 25GR75FG is being adopted by LEC for the 2023 season, which is being held in a brand-new format by merging Europe, Türkiye and CIS with the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) to create EMEA, a united competitive League of Legends Esports region. Optimized for esports, the 25GR75FG has been upgraded from its predecessor with the help of feedback from LEC players. The design, features and capabilities of the new UltraGear model make it an ideal choice not only for pro-players, but for anyone who loves the thrill of competitive gaming.
      “We are delighted to announce the continuation of our partnership with LG for the upcoming LEC 2023 Season,” said Eva Suarez, head of partnerships for EMEA at Riot Games. “We’re dedicated to providing our competitors with the best gaming experience possible and the new LG UltraGear gaming monitor will go a long way in offering our League of Legends pros outstanding picture quality every time they step onto the LEC stage.”
      “LG is very excited to introduce the 25GR75FG at the upcoming LEC 2023,” said Seo Young-jae, head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Super-fast gear fine-tuned for the demands of professional esports, our incredible high-performance display will be in the thick of the action as the best teams in the EMEA region play for victory.

      Last week, the CES floor was packed to capacity with thousands of visitors excited to see the latest innovations in consumer electronics.

      As LG is constantly challenging itself to go the extra mile to make its vision for a Better Life for All as reality, under the theme of Life’s Good, it was able to introduce its newest customer-centered technologies and products at its CES booth for every single visitor, regardless of inherited abilities, to experience and enjoy.

      Staying true to the company’s commitment and vision to boost accessibility for all, the company has actively started incorporating measures to increase accessibility this year. This commitment was on full display during LG’s press conference, which was streamed live on January 4, with a sign language interpreter displayed in the bottom right corner to allow its hearing-impaired viewers to follow along at home or wherever they may have been.

      Edward Tory Jarmailo, a sign language interpreter
      Not only that, LG’s accessibility efforts stood out above and beyond at the on-site booth as well, with the company inviting Edward Tory Jarmailo, a sign language interpreter, on site to provide ASL interpretation for attendees with hearing problems in person.

      Moreover, in the Better Life for All zone, informational materials were provided in braille for those with visual impairments and placed at a height that enables easy reading for people using wheelchairs.

      Visitors with visual and hearing impairments weren’t shy about expressing their appreciation for the various accessibility features LG provided at its expansive booth. “It was amazing to see so many positive reactions during my time working in LG’s CES booth. I remember one visitor coming to our booth for a second time, but this time with a friend,” said Mr. Jarmailo. “I’m always delighted to play my part in promoting a new level of accessibility with LG, a brand that puts equal importance on every individual’s experience at large trade shows like CES, and we can see these efforts reflected in their products and services too.”

      LG CLOi GuideBot, which is programmed to deliver digital-human sign language service
      The company successfully demonstrated how warmth and positivity can be spread through the power of technology, as it continues to put a smile on the faces of customers of all abilities. And there’s a lot more to come, so stay tuned to

      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.
