To use the AI remote control, check if there is anything around the TV that is interfering with the radio wave and make sure that the remote control is registered on the TV.

Wait! Here’s more.
The remote control won’t work if its battery is discharged.

Are there internet wireless routers or internet phones around the TV?

→ If electronic devices are too close to the TV, they may interfere with radio frequency and the remote control may be disconnected.

If the wireless router is placed on the left side of the TV, place it at a distance of at least 20cm to the right.
