How to Disable the LG TV Magic Remote Pointer

By | October 17, 2023

The LG TV Magic pointer is a nice TV remote control that has a cursor on the screen as well as a scroll wheel.

It is a good option for a TV remote and is used by many people with good results.

While the pointer is a nice option for many, it can be annoying for others and can be disabled if it is not needed.

It can also pop up when it wasn’t selected, but the home button was pressed.

When disabled, the other functions on the remote will still work, but the pointer feature can be turned off.

It is simple enough to turn off the pointer by pressing both the Home button and the Back Arrow button at the same time.

They are held for 3-5 seconds, and the TV screen will display that it has been disconnected.

Below are the full steps pictures for how to disable the pointer and enable it if it needs to be turned back on.
