We have a 2019 LG and found its faster to Google the problem since most likely everyone else has had the same problem. Here is some information on how to block advertising at the router:


I don't remember having to do this with ours so there might might be an easier option. Looks like a lot of discussion online about this problem with newer TV's.

Curved, mighty & 60%


THANK YOU SO MUCH OH MY GOD!!!!! Mine randomly did this after working perfectly fine for months, and your trick of turning it off and pushing the middle button worked great? Thank you for this I was losing my mind!

Thank you for the details on voice recognition. Mine started working again with turning telly off from middle and back on.

Just , Tried that , worked great. Can't believe I didn't think of that (NOT!)

I’m had the same problem and i found the fix (for me anyway). I would press the magic remote button and speak and let go of button and the tv would respond that voice isn’t recognized, try again. After super frustration and countless searching, i spoke slower and held the button until a second after i stopped speaking and everything is working perfectly. I was trying to command it too fast and i just needed to slow down a bit. I hope this information helps anyone else that got here looking for same answers i was :)
