How to watch 3D if remote does not have 3D button? LG 47LM5800

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have the LG 47LM5800. I bought it open box and the guy had to dig around in the drawer to find the remote for the tv. Upon further inspection the remote I was given was the wrong one, this one does not have the 3D button. I've looked through all the menus on the TV but haven't been able to find anything mentioning 3D. Do I need to get the correct/a new remote? Or is there some other way to get the 3D working?

I would suggest you contact LG to purchase a replacement remote specifically for that model. According to the user's manual, there is a 3D button on that remote. If LG cannot help, you could always purchase an inexpensive single-device Harmony remote just for the TV. They should have all of the commands for operating the TV in their online database. Or you could try going back to the store where you bought the set to see if they have the original remote somewhere.

In other words - no remote no 3D. Same with my Samsung set. There is no work-around that doesn't involve a remote of some kind.

With my LG 65LW6500, I can go to Home -> Setup -> Picture -> Set 3D Video. That allows me to turn on 3D options, and select one.

Your TV *should* work similarly. Good luck.

The factory remote will cost you an arm and a leg. Great time to get a Logitech 300. It will not only control the tv as well as the factory remote but will control 3 other things too. You can get one for about $25.
