LG TV Airplay Not Working

Let’s get started!

5 Reasons Why Airplay Is Not Working on LG TV

Here are the reasons why the Airplay might not be working on your LG Smart TV:

1. Airplay Not Supported by LG TV

Airplay is a feature that all LG Tv models do not have.

To check if your LG TV supports Airplay, go to Settings > Airplay. If the Airplay menu is not present, that means your TV does not support Airplay.

2. LG Tv’s Firmware Issues

To check whether you have a firmware issue, check if your LG TV’s firmware is out of date and has not been updated recently.

Outdated TV Firmware can cause compatibility issues with Airplay connectivity.

To Check the Latest LG Tv Software update you can go to Settings > Support > Software Update.

If you see an update prompting you to install, then you can follow the prompt and get your latest software updates.

3. Airplay Mirroring Disabled

In some cases, Airplay mirroring might be disabled on your LG TV. This can happen if you’ve previously disabled it or if it’s been turned off by another user.

To enable Airplay mirroring, go to Settings > Airplay > Airplay Mirroring.

4. There might be a problem with your LG TV’s Airplay receiver

If none of the above solutions work, there might be a problem with your LG TV’s Airplay receiver. 

To check if there is a problem with your LG TV’s Airplay receiver, go to the “Settings” menu and then select “About”. 

If you see an error message that says “Airplay receiver not found”, there is a problem with your LG TV’s Airplay receiver and you will need to contact LG customer support for further assistance.

5. Your Apple Device May not have support For Airplay

If you are using an older Apple device, it may not have Airplay support. Check Apple specifications whether your Device Supports Airplay or Airplay 2 to stream on your LG TV.

5 Fixes for Airplay Not Working on LG TV

Now that we’ve gone over some possible reasons why Airplay might not be working on your LG TV, let’s look at some easy fixes.

1. Restart Your LG TV

One of the simplest and most effective ways to fix this problem is to restart your TV. This will often fix any minor software glitches that might be causing the problem.

To restart your LG TV, go to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Restart.

2. Reset Your LG Smart TV

If restarting your LG TV doesn’t work for you, you can simply try resetting it. This will reset all of your TV’s settings to their factory defaults.

There are several cases where there remain issues within your Tv settings and a simple reset fixes that. 

To reset your LG TV, go to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset.

3. Update Your LG TV’s Firmware

If your LG TV’s firmware is out of date, it can cause compatibility issues with Airplay. So, it is always advisable to get the latest firmware update from your LG Tv.

To check for firmware updates, go to Settings > Support > Software Update. If there is a new firmware update available, follow the prompts to install it.

4. Connect Your LG TV to the Internet

Another simple fix is to make sure that your TV is connected to the Internet. Airplay requires an Internet connection to work properly.

To check if your TV is connected to the Internet, go to Settings > Network > Status. If it says “Not Connected,” try reconnecting to your Wi-Fi network.

Generally, the Airplay does not require Internet Connectivity to stream and it can work like connecting to a Local Network as a Hotspot to your Apple Devices like Smartphone or iPad. 

However, often we see errors while setup the Airplay without an internet connection. It’s better to have internet connectivity while set up. Also, if you are using Apple Tv, during the setup, you will require Wi-Fi connectivity.

If none of the above fixes work, your best bet is to contact LG customer support. They will be able to help you troubleshoot the problem and find a solution.
