Factory Reset, Remote Won't Work, Stuck on Press the OK button(wheel) on your remote (55NANO81ANA)


David Daul

Question

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.

Having the same issue with my OLED77A1PUA, did you ever figure this out?

Hello

Exactly the same issue on 49SM8600 and did same operations but still stuck w/o access to apps menu, settings menu, ....

Did you find a workaround or a fix ?

 

I wonder if this operation could help to reset bluetooth module :

No, I still have no work around. This is killing me, the TV is just $2,000 brick and it's impossible to return now.... I can not believe you can not get the TV to accept an input without going through the "Press the okay button" screen. I've tried 5+ remotes and many many hard resets, I think the IR receiver at the bottom is broken (I have no red light with the TV on or off). I'm using this as a display so I don't need the remote to work.... If someone has a work around to get past the "press the okay button" screen and get the TV to accept an input that would be very helpful.

If you connect an USB mouse you will be able to click on the OK button. Configure wifi just after clicking to have a chance then to use an app on your smartphone as a remote. I didn't and now i just have LG chanles w/o any other menu and no possibility to reset again. Magic remote and bluetooth handling is a big shit on LG TV.

All,  

I was at an airbnb and the LG TV had the message to hit the OK Wheel button.  Didn't work.  All the remote would do was turn on and off the TV.  Also the bottom button would only do the same.  Basically stuck in set up mode.  

I did plug a Corded Mouse into it and it allowed me to hit the OK Wheel Button.  It was by clicking down on the scroll wheel on the mouse.  That only got me to the next step and I was stuck again as I couldn't go up and down.  

Solution (for me) is I plugged a wireless keyboard (I'm sure wired would work) and then used the up and down keys and the enter button to finish running through the setup.  

I hope this helps.  I don't have an account on this site.

My LG Nano75 50" 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV got stuck on the Quick Access screen right after the last update. I spent several fruitless hours on forums and trying all the fixes to no avail. In a fit of pique, I mashed all the keys together and the screen is now cleared and the tv is working again.

Yes hold the power button at tv and remote wheel at same time

It did not work on my oled65c2 tv. I have replaced all boards twice. Is there normally a standby or power light close to switch?

TV comes on immediately upon plugging in with instructions to press wheel on remote.

Same issue here and I just figured it out myself, connect it to a keyboard, plug it up and it works just did it this morning I was stuck on the same screen, tried 30 different remotes and a mouse and nothing happened until I plugged the keyboard and it worked. Try it!

I found mine to be sort of self inflicted. It seems lg decided to use flip up disconnect for all ribbon connectors except the one that goes to power switch/ IR. It is opposite so it was essentially disconnected. After I found that, everything worked. Thanks for response.

Has anyone been in the tv?  If this tv is like mine (oled65c2) then it is not getting the 3.5v to the power switch/IR module

According to my experience, you must first 

<a href="https://rokuinsider.com/clear-cache-on-roku/">clear cache on Roku TV with or without remote</a>

  and then do a factory reset, if possible reboot your Roku device and see how it goes.

      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.

      Hi.. I have recently purchased LG 43LQ60006LA and its having normal remote. Will the magic remote works for this TV, if YES what would be the model to be purchased.
      I have other LG TV and magic remote, however its not working for 43LQ60006LA TV.
      I believe 43LQ60006LA model works with magic remote as I'm able to navigate using mouse via LG mobile app.
      Please advise what magic remote to be taken for 43LQ60006LA
      thanks

      Hello,
      We just bought this LG tv1   LG 43UR73006LA (2023).
      The screen mirror from my MacBook gives our LG tv as an option but when I click it, it says there is no connection possible with '[LG] webOS TV UR73006LA'
      Also when I want to add the tv to my Apple  HomeKit, it is not possible.
      The TV is on the same WiFi network and I checked if there are any updates available. 
      What can I do?

      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.
