AirPlay Is Not Working On The LG TV
1. AirPlay Is Not Working On The LG TV
The most common problem that people seem to be having is that Airplay simply isn't working on their LG TV. If you're experiencing this issue, there are a few things you can try.
Update Your iOS
First, make sure that your iPhone or iPad is running the latest version of iOS. To do this, go to Settings > General > Software Update and check for any available updates. If there are any updates available, install them and then try streaming content to your LG TV again.
If updating your iOS device doesn't fix the problem, the next thing you can try is restarting both your iPhone or iPad and your LG TV. Sometimes, a simple restart is all it takes to fix minor technical issues like this one.
Connect TV & iPhone To The Same Wi-Fi
Make sure that your TV and iPhone are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is necessary for Airplay to work properly. To check which Wi-Fi network your LG TV is connected to, go to Settings > Network > Wi-Fi Connection and look at the name of the network under "Current Network."
Open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and tap on Wi-Fi. Then, make sure that the Wi-Fi switch is turned on and that your device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your LG TV.
Once you've verified that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, try streaming content from your iPhone or iPad to your LG TV again.
Reset The Network Settings On Your iOS Device
If you're still having trouble, the next thing you can try is resetting the network settings on your iOS device. This will delete all of your saved Wi-Fi passwords and other networking information, so be sure to write them down before you proceed.
To reset the network settings on your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > General > Reset and tap on "Reset Network Settings." Then, enter your passcode and confirm that you want to reset the network settings.
Once the network settings have been reset, try connecting to your Wi-Fi network and streaming content to your LG TV again.
Disconnect TV From Power Outlet and Wait For 30 Seconds
If you're still having trouble, the next thing you can try is disconnecting your LG TV from the power outlet and waiting for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, reconnect your TV to the power outlet and turn it on. This should fix any minor software glitches that may be causing Airplay problems.
Reset Your LG TV
If you're still having trouble with Airplay after trying these steps, the next thing you can try is resetting your LG TV to factory settings. To do this, go to the "Settings" menu on your LG TV and select "General." From there, select "Reset to Initial Settings." Doing this will erase all of your custom settings and restore your LG TV to its default state. However, it should also fix any Airplay issues you may be having.
Your LG TV Is Not Compatible With Airplay
If you're still having trouble, it's possible that your LG TV is not compatible with Airplay. Unfortunately, not all LG TVs support Airplay. However, there are a few workarounds that you can try.
One workaround is to use an Apple TV. If you have an Apple TV, you can connect it to your LG TV and then use Airplay to stream content from your iPhone or iPad to your TV.
Another workaround is to use a different streaming device, such as a Chromecast or Roku. These devices will allow you to stream content from your iPhone or iPad to your LG TV without using Airplay.
Contact Customer Support
If you've tried all these steps and are still having trouble with Airplay, the next best thing to do is contact customer support. They may be able to offer additional troubleshooting tips or help you schedule a repair.
2. LG TV AirPlay Disconnected
In some cases, you may see the "AirPlay Disconnected" message on your LG TV. This usually happens when there is a problem with the connection between your TV and your iPhone or iPad.
If you're trying to use Airplay but keep getting disconnected, there are a few things you can try.
Switching To 2.4 GHz WIFI
If you're using a dual-band router, try switching your LG TV to the slower but more reliable 2.4 GHz band.
To do this, go to your TV's settings and look for the "Wireless" or "Network" options. Once you're in there, you should see an option to switch to the other WIFI band.
Once you've switched to the other band, try using AirPlay again and see if it works.
Turning Off Power Saving Mode
Another thing that can cause problems with AirPlay is power-saving mode. This is a setting on most TVs that turns off the TV after a certain period of time to save energy.
If your LG TV is set to power-saving mode, it can cause problems with AirPlay. To turn off power saving mode, go to your TV's settings and look for the "Power Saving" or "Energy Saving" option. Once you're in there, you should see an option to turn off power-saving mode.
Restarting Your Router
If you're still having problems with AirPlay, try restarting your router. This will reset the connection between your LG TV and your iPhone or iPad.
To restart your router, find the "Reset" button on the back of the router. Press and hold the button for a few seconds, then release it.
After the router has restarted, try using AirPlay again.
Connect to AirPlay via Apple Home
If you're still having trouble connecting to AirPlay, try using the Apple Home app. The Apple Home app is a free app that allows you to control your smart home devices, including your LG TV.
To use the Apple Home app, open the app and tap the "Add Accessory" button. Then, use your iPhone or iPad to scan for your LG TV. Once your LG TV appears, tap it to connect.
After you've connected to your LG TV via the Apple Home app, try using AirPlay again.
Check For Firmware Updates
Firmware updates can sometimes fix problems with AirPlay. To check for updates, go to your TV's settings and look for the "About" or "System Updates" option. Once you're in there, you should see an option to check for updates.
If there is an update available, install it and then try using AirPlay again.
3. Audio Lag When Using AirPlay
If you're noticing a delay between the audio and video when using Airplay, there are a few things you can try.
Turn Off HDCP
For starters, you can try turning off "HDCP" on your LG TV. HDCP is a copy protection protocol that can sometimes cause problems with AirPlay. To turn it off, go to your TV's settings and look for the "HDCP" option. Once you find it, turn it off and then try using AirPlay again.
You may also want to try turning off "HDCP" on your iPhone or iPad. To do this, go to the "Settings" app and tap "Screen Time." Then, tap "Content & Privacy Restrictions" and turn off the "HDCP" option.
Turn Off AirPlay Mirroring
Another thing you can try is turning off AirPlay mirroring. When you turn on AirPlay mirroring, your LG TV will duplicate the display of your iPhone or iPad. This can sometimes cause audio lag.
To turn off Airplay mirroring, go to your TV's settings and look for the "AirPlay" or "Wireless Display" option. Once you find it, turn off AirPlay mirroring and then try using AirPlay again.
