LG Magic Remote compatibility list 2011-2020 year


Compatibility of Magic Remote Controls with LG TV models

Types LG remote control

LG makes two types of remote controls for TVs.

  1. Universal remote control, LG calls it Magic remote magic remote control. This remote control, in addition to switching channels, helps to visualize the TV control. The principle of its operation is similar to that of a computer mouse. You can also use this remote control to perform voice control of the TV. The remote control type Magic communicates with the TV using bluetooth. One condition for using a Magic remote control is that the TV must have a bluetooth module.
  2. Standard remote control. This remote control fits all TVs and controls the TV. But it does not support voice control and cursor control. This remote does not need to be set up and works with any LG TV from 2010 onwards

LG has not changed the look of its Magic Remote remotes since 2016. Previously, LG changed the protocol for connecting the remotes to the TV each year. As of 2019, LG is making remotes compatible with TVs from 2017. But still, when buying a remote, you need to pay attention to the year of development of the TV model to which the remote fits.

Magic remote LG model numbers

First, LG released magic remote controls with model numbers, for example, the AN-MR300. You should have known that the MR300 model is for 2012 TVs and the AN-MR600 model is for 2016 TVs. As of 2015, the remote control model number was also referred to as AN-MR15 to make it easier to understand, but some countries used the old remote control model number and some used the new one.

As of 2018, LG only applies the new remote control designation for all countries. The AN-MR18BA remote control model for 2018 TVs, AN-MR19BA for 2019 TVs has become clearer. AN-MR20GA remote control for 2020.

What do the letters at the end of the model number of the Magic remote mean?

For example, remote control AN-MR20GA, what do the letters GA mean? GA is a modification of the remote control, the remote control has buttons for quick access to certain commands or streaming services. For example, in many countries popular streaming services Netflix, Amazon, the TV set is equipped with a remote control AN-MR20GA, this remote control has a button for quick access to these services, on the other modification of the remote control may be a Youtube button. If in some country some other streaming services are popular, there can be made a separate button for them and it will be another modification of the remote control. Note that the TV will work with any AN-MR20 remote control regardless of the modification.

Replacing the Magic remote control

In stores you can find a large number of remote controls, the description of which mentions a replacement remote control, for example LG AN-MR19BA. It means that this remote control is not original. It is necessary to carefully study what TVs this remote control is suitable for and what functions it supports. Very often such remotes do not support voice control.

      • Would it work if a bluetooth adapter were added? If yes, which would be the best one to use?

        • You can find a replacement for the original remote control with a USB adapter. But as a rule such remotes do not have voice control and very often the cursor does not work. You have to read the reviews of real customers.

  1. Hi, as I see the only compatible magic remote for my 42LB650V-ZN is the AN-MR500. Is that right? Is it still in the market? How can I buy it? Thanks

    • Yes this remote is compatible with your TV. Many companies sell remotes, original and replacement, search online.

      • hye..can we use lb6xx tv series with other than an-mr500 since i recon this kind of remote discontinued already

        • No an-mr500 cannot be replaced with another remote control, look for a replacement for the original remote control.

  2. Hello! Can you kindly advise which of the newer remotes will work with an OLED55E8PLA? I am not sure if this was a 2017 or 2018 model.
    S/W is 05.20.02 and the original remote is part # AN-MR18BA.
    Many thanks,

    • UN7300 compatible AN-MR20. The 2018 and 2019 remotes should also work AN-MR19, AN-MR18.
      AN-MR650A – not compatible and will not work

  3. I have 75UN6970PUD.
    Is there a magic remote that’s compatible with my tv? I can’t find it on the list. Help please 🙂

  4. Hi, I have a LG 49UH610T tv. Would you be able to let me know which magic remote control is compatible ?

  5. Hi. I have a LG 55UK6200PLA (2019) Tv at my Home. Which type of LG magic remote control is the right one for my LG Tv? Thank You,Mitja from Slovenia.

    • Your TV works with the Magic AN-MR18BA remote control. Also compatible with 2019 and 2020 remotes.

  6. Hi do you have replacement remote for a 60ub850t-ta lg tv old remote wont pair up keeps asking for blue tooth initialised when you press ok wheel thanks graeme

    • AN-MR400

  7. Hi everyone. I have a LG 70un7070PUA. Are there any magic remotes that will work with this TV?

  8. Hi,

    My tv is LG 55SK8000PTA. It comes with AN-MR18BA as remote. Wondering if the AN-MR19BA will work as well as can’t seem to find theMR18BA replacement here.


    • Yes, remote controls 2019, 2020 support work with TVs of previous models up to 2018. But these are only the original remotes, replica remote control may not work correctly.

  9. My tv mode 65LB5830-UD… can i just update software for the magic remote to work fully? I can’t seem to get the ok/scroll working. Everything else works?

    • If your TV has Bluetooth, it is compatible with AN-MR600. In 2015 there were modifications of TVs with and without Bluetooth. It is possible to buy replacement remote control with a Bluetooth module connected to USB. But such remote control does not support voice commands.

    • Hi which remotes can I use for the 55UF770T and 43UF640T are there alternatives if I cannot find an MR600 ?

      • Look for replacement of the original remotes, LG does not indicate MR600 compatibility with other remotes.

  10. Hi, i have a 55UH650v tv, built august 2016, please which magic remote is compatible?

    Thanks in advance for your reply

  11. My TV UB65980T was working ok w MR500. However the remote broke and MR500 is now discontinued by LG…. What’s the solution?

    • You can buy a new remote, but on the outdated model TVs to find the original remote is difficult. Not original remotes usually do not support voice control.

      • I did buy MR500 replacement. However the pointer cursor moves only with scroll buttons… Shaking or moving the remote doesn’t move the cursor. All button functions work fine.

        Must appreciate your detailed study on tv models and remote.. LG should be thankful to you for this, like us! ,

        • maybe you bought an unoriginal remote control and it has no bluetooth in this case it will not work. The original remote control transmits information about the movement of the remote to the Bluetooth. The original remote also has a built-in gyroscope that reacts to the movement of the remote in space and moves the cursor over the screen through the Bluetooth.

          • Thanks a lot for the technical explanation. In the meantime, I got a new mr600 remote, this one is unable to register and gives a msg on the screen as “failed to register magic remote. Please try again” This msg repeats inspite of re-registration procedure of home n back key 10 sec, power cycle, exit button 5 sec etc
            Except the scroll/select button, every other button works fine. However, I am unable to select anything with this an600 remote. Please guide( my TV is 65UB980T).. thanks in advance!

  12. I have a 47LA690S. And where I am grom the am-mr400 is not available for sale. Is there aby other compatible remote?

  13. Hello, I have 79UB980V, old magic remote stopped working

    Is MR500 the only suitable magic remote working for this model? Thx

    • The UH5500 TV model does not have a built-in Bluetooth module. Work with Magic remote is not provided.

  14. Hi there. I have an lg 60uh770v. What is the right magic remote? An-rm600 or an-rm650. The original I have is the one with the magnifying glass central button

    • Hi there. Mine is 55UH617T, which remote is compatible with it? It wasn’t listed in your list and I scrolled over all the comments but none was identical to mine. Thanks a lot in advance.

  15. Are there any replacement IR remotes that will work with an LG CX OLED? I want to program my learning universal remote with the IR codes but the MR20 only sends out RF. I know the TV has an IR sensor because I can switch it on/off and control volume with the cable box remote (from codes). I want to program all of the functions into my universal and put the horrible Magic Remote in the drawer. I don’t care about pointer or voice control functionality.

      • Thanks, I found one on Amazon for $10 and it works a charm: all functions covered. I’ve programmed my master remote and put the others away in the drawer!

    • The model TV LG65UH615V does not have a built-in Bluetooth module, the Smart remote cannot be used.

    • LG 55UM7290PTD remote controllers are supported AN-MR19BA (does not come with a TV, must be purchased separately)

  17. Hi. My magic remote for my TV is faulty and I need a replacement. The TV model number is 55UJ652T-TB and it was manufactured in April 2017. Can you tell me which magic remote is compatible? Thank you for reading this.

  18. Hi, I have an LG 42LN570T which uses a AKB73756557 remote that is now faulty. Can you advise of replacement options as I cannot find an original here, thanks.

    • This is an ordinary universal remote control for LG TVs. Any remote control (not magic remote)

  19. Does 43UH6030-UD support magic remote and if yes which of the magic remote. I have AN-MR650 but the pointer does not show either does the roller button works.

    • Magic remote not supported by tv 55UH6090
      In this TV model, Smart can be controlled from a smartphone using Magic Mobile Connectivity LG
      What to control the TV mobile phone and TV must be connected to a single computer network.

    • Your TV can work with Magic Remote AN-MR600. But the TV does not have bluetooth, you also need to buy a bluetooth adapter
      Bluetooth dongle

  20. Hi there, Adrian here, I am trying to find out which magic remote would my LG smart tv’s,and I haven’t found my tv models on the above list,I was hoping that you could help me.
