Rated 5 out of 5 by from New LG TV I bought this TV at Costco a couple of months ago, after doing quite a bit of research on brand, models, features, size, etc. I settled on this LG TV, and I am completely satisfied with my purchase.

Having the LG television model 49UJ6500, I decided to get the Magic Remote AN-MR650 that was recommended. My television reads "This remote is not supported by this TV"-quick fix out there?

Asked by: mstrez
Hi mstrez. Regrettably, you were recommended the wrong LG Magic Remote for the LG 4K UHD HDR Smart LED TV - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49UJ6500. The LG Magic Remote Control with Voice Mate™ for Select 2016 Smart TVs, Model # AN-MR650 is not compatible with your TV since your TV is a 2017 model. The 2017 LG Magic Remote that is compatible with your TV is Model # MR15A...^IFV

I have a new 49uj6500. It has a terrible glare on the screen. Why is the glare so bad and how do I fix it. There's a glare even with no lights or windows shining on it.

Setting up LG 49UJ6500. Now testing Magic Remote. Supposed to click on NUM1. What is NUM1 and what does it do?  Help!

We do appreciate your interest in this television. From what your describing, it sounds like you are in the DEVICE CONNECTOR screen. If so, you would need to use the magic remote's cursor to select NUM1 on the screen below remote type. For further assistance, please contact LG at 800-243-000.

What is the difference between UJ & UH??  Why is the 49UJ6500 listed as LED-LCD?  What does that mean and is it better or worse than just LED?

Asked by: Cinn
The difference between "UJ" and "UH" is the year of development. For example, for the LG 4K UHD HDR Smart LED TV - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49UJ6500, in the model number, the 49 is the diagonal screen size, the "U" indicates the screen matrix type and 'U" is a UHD LED. The "J" indicates that this is a 2017 model (Year of development). "H" would have been for 2016 mode. All LED LCD TVs are LCD TVs. Despite having a different acronym, an LED TV is just a different type of LCD TV. The proper name would actually be “LED-backlit LCD TV,” but that’s too much of a mouthful for everyday conversation, so people generally just refer to them as LED TVs. Both types of TV make use of a liquid crystal display (LCD) panel to control where light is displayed on your screen. Older LCD TVs used cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) to provide backlighting, whereas LED TV’s used an array of smaller, more efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) to illuminate the screen, which gave them a few advantages. Now, all LCD TVs use LED lights, and are colloquially considered LED TVs and the LCD TVs you think of now no longer exist...^IFV
