You should know the Magic remotes of LG TVs are compatible with TVs from other years. If you have a 2021 TV, a 2023 remote will work with it, but not vice versa. Remotes from previous years do not work with newer TVs. While LG claims that starting with 2019 remotes is compatible with previous years’ TVs, this is often not the case, and LG has nothing to do with it. There are just a lot of remotes on the market (replacement). LG does not make such remotes, and often, the manufacturer makes the remote compatible only with specific models of TVs, which cheapens the remote. Also, the old TV should get a new firmware that specifies compatibility with the newer remote.

Types LG remote control

A little about LG remotes: there are two types of remotes for TVs: Universal (hardly used since 2022) and Magic. There are differences between the two and here are the differences:

Smart remote: LG calls this the Magic remote. In addition to changing channels, this remote helps visualize the TV control. The principle of operation is similar to that of a computer mouse. With this remote, you can also control the TV by voice. The Magic remote control communicates with the TV via Bluetooth. One of the requirements for using the Magic remote is that the TV must be equipped with Bluetooth.
Standard (universal) remote: This remote works with all TVs and can change channels and control Smart TVs. However, it does not support voice control or cursor control. This remote requires no setup and works with any 2010 or newer LG TV. Infrared waves control the TV.

Magic remote control compatibility with LG TV models

As I said, remotes can work with older TVs in some countries. In the US, for example, LG states that the remote is only compatible with TVs from the corresponding year of manufacture. To work correctly, the remote must be paired with the TV via Bluetooth; the on-screen pointer and voice control will work once paired. If the remote is not paired, it can work as a universal remote and control the TV using infrared signals. Therefore, buying a remote control that matches the TV is better.

LG TV remote control compatibility list TVs 2011-2023

This is a compatibility chart for LG remotes and TVs. Find your TV and determine which remote control you need. If you don’t know how to find the model number of your TV, please read the article “How to find the model and serial numbers in the LG TV menu,” and if you want to understand what the LG TV model number means, please read the article “LG TV model number search, decoding.” If you have an original remote control, you can check its model number and buy a similar one.

LG Magic Remote Price

Here’s what you need to know about the price of the Magic remote control for LG TVs. Original Magic remotes are expensive, from $60 to $200, depending on the model of the remote. Still, LG allows you to freely use developer tools to create non-original remotes (replacement Magic remotes). But here, it all depends on the manufacturer’s level; some remotes look identical but do not support voice control, there are remotes with Bluetooth adapter, and there are remotes that do not support the complete set of commands. So I recommend buying original remotes or replacing them with quality ones (replacement). Also, check the remote control description to see which TV models it works with.

LG Magic Remote model numbers by year

With the advent of Smart TVs, there was a need for a new remote that was more functional than the remotes for previous generations of TVs. The first remote was released in 2011, and in the following years, the look of the remote changed every year. From 2015 to 2021, LG did not change the look of its Magic Remote; it remained the same for those five years. In 2021, there was a new remote; it was bigger and had new features. Further in the article, you will find photos of LG TV remotes by year.

LG released Magic remotes with model numbers like the AN-MR300. You should have known that the MR300 model is for 2012 TVs, and the AN-MR600 model is for 2016 TVs. Starting in 2015, the remote’s model number was also labeled as AN-MR15 to make it easier to understand. Both new and old Magic Remote model numbers were used.

As of 2018, LG uses only the new remote designation for all countries. Remote control model AN-MR18BA for 2018 TVs and AN-MR19BA for 2019 TVs is now more precise. AN-MR20GA remote control for 2020 TVs. AN-MR21** Magic remote control for 2021 TVs. AN-MR22 Magic remote control for 2022 TVs. The AN-MR23 remote control is supplied with 2023 TVs. Here is the table of correspondence between the remote number and the year of manufacture; this information is also in the first table.

AN-MR3002012
AN-MR2002011

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

For example, remote AN-MR20GA, what do the letters GA mean? GA is a modification of the remote; it has buttons for quick access to specific commands or streaming services. For example, in many countries, popular streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon, the TV is equipped with a modification of the remote control with the model number AN-MR22GA; this remote control has a button for quick access to streaming services. Another modification of the remote control may be a YouTube button. If other streaming services are popular in a country, you can make a separate button for them, which will be another modification of the remote. The TV 2022 year will work with any AN-MR22 remote, regardless of the modification.

LG Magic remote 2011-2023

I’ll tell you about Magic remotes; you can see what they look like. I’ll tell you again what TVs they are compatible with. The peculiarities of Magic remotes depend on the year of production.

LG Magic Remote Control for TV 2023 (AN-MR23)

The 2023 Magic Remotes have mostly stayed the same from the previous year’s. The remotes have different modifications depending on the country. What’s interesting is that I was looking at several models of LG TVs in the US and couldn’t find in the description which model of remote comes with the TVs, so I decided to make a list of remotes and indicate for which countries they are manufactured and shipped with LG TVs in 2023.

AN – MR23GN (NFC)
AN – MR23 GA.

These are the basic remotes shipped in the US and Europe. Their difference is support for quick access to streaming services Netflix, Prime Video, Disney +, LG Channels, and Sling, and there is also an Alexa button.

If LG updates the software for 2021-2022 TVs and will support MR23 remotes, this remote will be able to work with these TVs. But whether this will happen is still unknown.

Magic Remote Control 2023 MR23 is compatible with the following TV models: OLED A2, B3, G3, C3, Z3, R3, M3; QNED (QNED***R*) 75, 80-89, 90-99; 4K UHD: UR7***, UR8***, UR9***

  1. I don’t know if this has been answered before so I apologize in advance… I currently have the AN-MR700 remote.. The long silver remote. I once read that LG’s “Magic Remotes” will work on any other LG Tv’s… I wanted to know if anyone knows for sure if the MR-700 (originally designed for the LG Oled65G6 model) Will work on the 2023 LG Oled65C3 ? I would like other AV sites that list LG’s remotes (such as remotes.co.nz) to at least list the MR-700 as this model remote seems very difficult to find on any sites compatibility list (it’s like they just skipped over the 700 and went to MR800 or down to MR650) Anyway, I plan on buying the C3 when the C4 drops in March and would love to use my AN-MR700 on it. Does anyone know if it can be paired with the C3?

    • No, you cannot use a 2016 remote with later TVs (incompatibility of bluetooth protocols). Your old remote will work as a normal infrared remote, but Bluetooth will not work, there will be no pointer and no voice support.

  2. This is great news! I’ve been looking for a remote that works with my TV and this list provides me with some good options to choose from. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi , may i know my current remote model number is MR700 LG ORG , can i use MR22 LG ORG to replace ? tks

  4. Hi I’ve just bought an LG 24TQ510S 24″ Inch SMART LED HD TV & Monitor with WiFi Freeview HD & Freesat Is there a Magic remote that is best suited to this model

    • Your monitor 24TQ510S supports bluetooth. But LG says you need to check the specification of the wireless module to see if it supports the Smart remote control. Unfortunately, LG doesn’t say how to do this.

      I would suggest checking your TV’s settings to see if the remote can be set up Smart. If it’s set up, that means you can use it.
      Configuring the Magic Remote Control Pointer
      Smart Home () > Settings > OPTION > Pointer
      To configure the speed, shape, and size of the Magic Remote Control pointer, perform the following steps:

      On the Magic Remote Control, press the Smart Home () button to open the home screen of your Smart TV.
      On the home screen, select Settings.
      Select OPTION > Pointer to open the pointer settings window.
      Select the setting you wish to configure:
      Speed: Sets the movement speed of the pointer.
      Shape: Selects the shape of the pointer.
      Size: Sets the size of the pointer.
      Alignment: Enables or disables the alignment function of the pointer.

      Your monitor is equipped with WebOS22 You need the AN-MR22 remote control

  5. Hello
    I have a LG 55UK6750PLD
    Which magic control should I buy for it to be right, thanks for the answer.
    best regards Peter

  6. Dear Sirs.
    I have a LG TV model 65UJ6585 and a Magic Renote Control model MR15RA (AN- MR650A).
    Now I need buy a new Remote Control to the TV.
    Can I buy and use the new ones LG MR21 or MR22 Smart Remote Controls to my 65UJ6585 TV?
    Tks

    • LG claims that the MR19 and MR20 can be compatible. But this rule does not work in all countries. Your TV must receive the latest update. The remote control must be original. You have to experiment there is no guarantee that the 19-20 year remote will work with your TV.

  7. Hey , i have the LG 65UK6300MLB (2018) TV and want to buy a new remote, i know that the AN-MR18BA was the original remote, but i couldnt find it anywhere in stores in my country. Does the MR19, MR20 work with my TV i mean will the wand cursor function work too?

    • Other remotes will not work with your TV, you need the AN-MR18. Non-original remotes (other models may work) you need to read what TVs are supported.

  8. Thank you Anatoliy. I am connected to a sky satellite and the engineer connected the box to the HDM1 connector in the TV. I can watch the sky channels, no problem but when I go to settings on the tv to autotone and I follow the instructions, autotune find no satellite or freesat channels. I’m in touch with people who know what needs to be done.
    Would a magic remote work with this tv please.

    • Hello, when you switch on the Autoset function on your TV, the TV searches for channels with the built-in tuner. Since you do not have an antenna connected to the (in ant) socket of the TV, it does not find anything. The TV has a built-in satellite receiver that can receive open satellite channels, but this requires a satellite dish with receiver heads tuned to the desired satellite. The picture shows the connectors for cable or terrestrial TV, below is the threaded connector for the satellite dish.
      As for using the Magic remote, yes, your TV is ready to use the remote. Since your TV is 2019, you need the Ready remote (AN-MR19BA sold separately).

      connector in ant and sat

      If you want to get the most out of your TV, connect it to the Internet. You can watch online streaming services and other TV programs available in your country. Using your TV to watch TV programs via antenna, cable, or satellite is outdated and really only allows you to use 40% of the TV’s capabilities.

  9. I am an old fellow and all this is beyond me. All I know is I have just bought a LG tv. Model no:43LM6300PLA. It arrived with a “normal” remote and not bits of wiring other than a power plug. Auto tune doesnt work through a sky satellite. All I can watch are sky channels and can’y use the tv to its ssupposed full potential. HELP

    • If you watch Sky, you must have a Sky receiver, you need to buy an HDMI to HDMI cable and connect the receiver to the TV. On your TV, select the HDMI input and watch the channels. If you have trouble setting it up yourself, get help from someone who knows about it.

  10. Hi there! What about 55UH668V manufactured in 2017?
    AN-MR650 or AN-MR650A or both are good to go?

  11. I purchased a 43up7000pua that says 1/22 on the back. Got manual remote w it LR03/UM4 but it says it w work w a magic remote. I desperately need the model of the magic remote for this tv please. Thank you!

  12. I have a LG OLED65C8 which has a AN-MR18BA remote. I ordered a new one through Amazon. What was sent was the MR20GA. Everything seems to work except the voice control. Is there something I can do to correct this issue?

    • Check if you purchased the original remote control or a replacement. Remote controls sold as replacements often do not support voice control. Also check to see if your TV has received the latest software updates. If you can drop a link from Amazon to the remote you bought, I’ll look into it in more detail.

  13. Hello, I have a 2017 OLED C7 55″, the only resonable magic remote i can find to purchase is the MR20GA, ive heard and seen that it is compatible with my TV but will the magic pointer function also work or do i need to try and find the MR650A as its the one my TV came with

    • The AN-MR20 remote control should work with your TV, but only an original LG remote control. A replacement original remote will most likely not work. Your TV must receive a software update to work with the new remote control.

  14. Great article, very informative!

    I have a SM8200PLA and a faulty SM19 which needs replacing.
    According to the table at the top of the article, the AN-MR21 should be compatible with my TV, however further on it suggests that variations of the remote won’t be.

    I have ordered a AN-MR21GC but am now thinking this might not work. Can you advise?

    • According to LG information I’ve read on some of their websites, it indicates compatibility with 2019 TVs. For the remote to work, you have to update your TV’s software to the latest version. But whether that’s actually the case, I don’t know. If you get the remote, it would be interesting to know how it would work with your TV.

      • The remote has been delivered and it seems to be working fine out of the box.

        The only issue is that the Disney/Rakuten/Google and Alexa buttons don’t work. Not sure if there is a way of activating or programming these?

        • No buttons are programmable, check the TV software and update it to the latest version. If the buttons still do not work, you will have to connect these services from the TV menu.

  15. Hi, do you know if there is a magic remote which is compatible with a 43UH603V-ZE? We’re currently using a standard remote, but is on it’s last legs so needs replacing. Would be nice if we can use the pointer function of one of these magic remotes instead. I don’t know if our TV has bluetooth or not, but would adding a USB bluetooth dongle work if not? Currently running firmware version 05.60.15 if it matters.

      • Thanks for the quick reply. What about if I was to use an AN-WF500 Bluetooth adapter? Do you have any experience with these to know if it’ll add magic remote support?

  16. Hello, can you please help me to determine if I can purchase a magic remote for my new LG75UP70 TV, and if so, which one to order? Thank you so much for your help!

  17. I have a new LG TV 50UP7670PUC. Can I use a Magic Remote instead of the standard remote? If so, which model?

  18. I have a new 50UP7670PUC with a standard remote. Is there a Magic Remote available that I can use instead of the standard one?

  19. Hello, i have Lg model:43UK6950PLB,Product code:43UK6950PLB.BEEWLJP, manufactured:03/2019 with magic remote model:AN-MR18BA, it has little bit broken, should my TV working with any other Lg magic remotes or only with MR18BA?
    Thx!

    • Your TV will only work with the AN-MR18BA remote control. Other remotes are not compatible.
      Non-original (replacement) remotes from other series may work with your TV with limited functionality. But it is best to buy the original AN-MR18BA remote control

    • 55LH600T
      Asia L-con (standard remote only, Magic remote not available)
      India MR15R
      Australia – AN-MR650

  20. I have broken my magic remote control (MR15RA) for LG smart TV (UK6100PVA), please advice me the link to purchase replacement.

    • The MR15 is the 2015 analogue of the AN-MR600 and look for it in stores in your country.

  21. Hi.
    Could you please tell me which Magic Remote I need for my LG 32LM637BPLA.
    I only got the bog standard remote when I bought this TV last week from Costco.
    I’m really confused, there’s so many!!
    Thank you,
    Trisha.

  22. I have a new MR20GA remote that not able to pair with TV 55UN7300P, OLED65CXPTA, OLED65C1PTB AND 49UJ632T. after reset, after “registering new remote” the error show the “remote has not been successfully registered. please try again”. What should i do? the remote not able to register so there is no pointer and no voice function.

  23. Hi, I’ve got a LS5700 and my AN-MR300 is broken. The AN-MR300 is impossible to find. Can I replace it with a universal? Will it work?

  24. Hi. My girlfriend used scissors to remove old batteries and short-circuit remote. now it is dead. Our TV is LG 49UH770V and remote model: AN-MR650. On LG’s website there’s 2 remotes compatible. Original one and AKB75455602. As my TV have Bluetooth is there any other suitable remote? I found many cheap Chinese remotes look almost like original but with usb dongle for pairing. I don’t want block usb ports with it. And btw magic remotes are expensive.
    Thanks 4 your time.

  25. Hi,
    I have TV model 49uh651y. I bought Voice Magic Remote MR20GA. But unfortunately is not supported by my TV.
    I realized that I need the model AN-MR650. Or is the AN-MR650A compatible with my TV too ?

  26. Hello, trust you’re doing fine. I need a remote for TV model 32LB6520, kindly recommend one for me please.

  27. I have an LG 55EC930 – TA with a Magic Remote. Which compatible Magic remote with numbers for channel changing.

    • Magic remote does not come with numbers. You need to buy a standard remote, it will not be smart.

    • AN-MR21 works with 2020 TV. There is no reverse compatibility, the MR20 remote will not work with a 2021 TV.

  28. Hello,

    I have a LG TV, 55UJ630V-ZA manufactured in Octber 2017. Which magic remote is compatible with this model?

    Thanks for the help 🙂

  29. I need a AN-MR650 for my 2016 Curved C6 OLED. But I can’t find an OEM Magic Remote for this TV that allows for the point & click feature.

    Any chance you might be able to point me in the right direction to purchase one? I know you mentioned the LG SIGNATURE series remotes, MR15R or MR15RA might work. But will they have the point & click functionality as well?

  30. I recently ordered a MR20GA Magic Remote and everything seems to be working correctly, except no CURSOR, WHEEL, or VOICE CONTROL.

    I’ve come to learn that my 50UN70000PUC does not seem to have bluetooth, nec for the cursor, wheel, & voice control functions.

    Its a 2020 TV – will the AN WF500 LG dongle solve the problem?

    Thanks.

      • Thanks Anatoliy.

        No other options for me to use a MR’s voice, cursor, wheel functions then?
        Firmware update . . ?

        • And a follow-up . .

          On the Compatibility chart, what do the asterisk’s identify?
          My UN70. . . has two asterisk’s – unsure the reference.
          Thanks again.

          • Unfortunately, your TV does not have a bluetooth module, so the pointer and voice commands are not available. The UN70** is a modification of your TV (UN7050 or UN7010 as an example).

            • OK, thanks again.
              Oh well.
              I’ll return the MR that I bought.

              What’s interesting though, is that I have a cursor when I use the LG ThinQ app that I have on my iPhone – I’m guessing that’s through wifi then, not bluetooth.

  31. Hi, My TV’s Serial Number is 55EC930T-TA and I would like to replace it with a magic remote. Please tell me which remote I would need and is compatible.

  32. Hi, my LG tv model is 49UH850V and came with magic remote MR15R which is now defective. I got AN-MR19BA and AN-MR650A online. Please advice which one will work with my TV.

    Thank you very much!

  34. Hi Anatoliy, my tv is LG 32LM6370PLA. Which magic remote model is compatible with this model? Thank you.

    • The AN-MR19 is the original Magic remote control for your TV. Later versions of the remote control should work even after updating the TV software.
      Depending on the country for which the TV is made, the Smart remote control may not be supported.

    • Hello Anatoliy.
      Could you please help and me?
      I have the 50ph670s smart 3d lg with the anmr400 magic remote. What other magic remotes suits on my tv?

        standard remote control, any since 2011

  35. Hi Anatoliy – I previously asked you if I could use a MR20GA remote with my 55 UM6910 PUC television. You told me that I couldn’t because my TV did not have bluetooth capability. Would my remote work if I purchased a LG AN-WF500 Bluetooth dongle?

    • No it won’t, our TV doesn’t have a bluetooth module, Magic remote is not supported.

      • Hi, I’ve just purchased the lg uhd tv 43up75, is Alexa built in this tv and would I require a Magic remote? Thank you

    • The AN-MR19 and AN-MR20 will work with your TV. You need to update your TV software to the latest version.

    Thank you in advance

  58. Hi, my TV is 55UH615T. What would be the right standard remote control and magic remote control? Thank you very much

    • The UM700PLA does not have a built-in bluetooth module. Magic remote is not supported.

    Could you please advise which remote is compatible with 49LJ610v-TA (having Bluetooth)?
    also, if i purchase different type , will it work after updating TV software ?

  60. Hi

    I have a model # LG 47LS5700 television that came with a model #AN-MR3005 magic remote that now needs replacing. Could you tell me which replacement remote I could use with this tv that would enable me to access the smart tv functions (inputs, Netflix, apps) ?

    Thank you so much
    Natasha

    • Any AN-MR300 series remote control will work with your TV.
      The AN-MR3005, a remote control of the MR300 series, and the 5 is a modification.

  61. Hi there, Marius here, I am trying to find out which magic remote would my LG 70UN71003LA need?

    Thanks!

  62. Purchased Magic MR20Ga – works but unable to use the pointer or curser
    I have 55UN7000PUB

    I read through the comments. Couldn’t find this one, but there were others with a serial close to that were supported so, I’m hoping I just have the wrong remote?

    Thanks a bunch

    • Unfortunately the 55UN7000PUB does not have Bluetooth installed. It is not possible to use this TV with a Magic remote.

  63. Hello. Which remotes will be compatible with LG 65UN71006LB? Thanks in advance for responding!

  64. My 55UF860V came with the AN-MR600 magic remote… I’ve messaged LG to see if there’s a compatible normal (non magic remote) I can purchase, but they say only the magic remote will work…I’ve tried to look it up and found this AKB75095308 might work… Can you recommend a normal remote that will turn the TV on off, work the inputs, and up down ok… Thanks…

    • LG standard remote control (L-Con) will work with all LG TVs (2011-2020) regardless of modification
      L-con is a remote control that has buttons with digits 1,2,3….9.

      • The LG AKB75095308 remote does work as a replacement for the AN-MR600 magic remote for the **UF86** range of TV’s and I’d at least assume it will work for the TV’s you’ve listed in the table above for 2015… It performs virtually all functions including smart and settings…

  65. On my magic remote (AKB75855501) is broken motion sensor, pointer on tv is moving random. Circuit board is OTMF-B421 TYPE, did I can to replace that sensor and which is that one or I need to buy another remote?

    Thank you very much!

    • The Magic remote has a gyroscope that monitors the tilt of the remote and the cursor on the screen reacts to this. If the cursor moves randomly, most likely the remote control is defective and must be replaced.

  66. Hello TV is TV PANASONIC TX-32FS400E LED SMART TV, 32.0 “, 80.0 см , can i use a magic remote and wich model ?
    Thank you in advance.

    • Yes it is a 2018 smart TV, entry level. The magic remote is not supported, only works with a standard remote .

  67. Hello,
    I have LG UH650T model tv and the remote MR650 got damaged. The same model magic remote is not available now and LG is replacing it with a standard remote. On the other hand MR650A is available, which is meant for 2017 models. I would like to ask you whether this MR650A remote will be compatible with my TV. Thanks it advance.

      • 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.

      • Yes, the remote control Magic will work with your TV, you need to buy the remote control model AN-MR19

  68. 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
    John

    • 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.

  69. 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,
    Seb

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

    • AN-MR400

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

  75. 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.

    Thanks

    • 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.

  76. 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.

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

    Thanks in advance for your reply

  78. 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!

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

  80. 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.

  81. 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.

  82. 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)

  85. 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)

  86. 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
      AN-WF500
      Bluetooth dongle

  87. 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.

    50UK6470PLC
    Many thanks for your time Regards Adrian

      • Hey, I have LG TV UM7400PLB, software version 05.20.15. It has bluetooth. In the compatibility list it says that MR21 works with UM7 if there is bluetooth on it. Does that mean all of the UM7 series with bluetooth? Will MR21 work with my TV?

        • It depends on the country, MR21 may not work. You will have to experiment. The original AN-MR19 remote control will definitely work for your TV. In LG TVs, if there is bluetooth Magic remote will work. But it is better to check on the LG website for your country whether this remote is supported by your TV.
