Annoying POP-UP

LG 50PJ350 Annoying POP-UP AV2 "New external device connected. Do you want to ENJOY this? YES - NO "

There are no devices connected. Have not experienced issues in 4 years since it's purchase.

It remains persistent and will not stop blinking in sporadically no matter what has been attempted to resolve this kind of issue.

I think maybe the remote infrared is possibly corrupted from other external means.

Any manual to show the menus? Didn't find one.

Had owner manual and reviewed all online resources as well, but it was not sim-link either.

After a few tries, decided to "actually" plug a device (DVD Player) into the AV2 ports, turned it on for a minute, then disconnected it and it finally ceased and can once again use HDMI3 again without annoying pop-up.

I can see how that could fix it.


I'm just someone that has written embedded code for years so I get how that could help. Thanks for sharing the solution. I'll remember it.

A Few other oddities...

In reply to: I can see how that could fix it.

Prior to this first issue with the LG 50PJ350, I just got a wireless charger which I plugged into my 'laptop' which is the only device I normally connect to the TV via HDMI port which is located just above the AV2 jack, only connections on the left side. Could the wireless charger have had some kind of virus that wormed it's way through HDMI to TV? Or could other external infrared interference be some other plausible cause via sim-link. Sim-link on or off made no difference. Also unplugged TV initially to see if that would fix it but nope.

There has never been any device plugged into the AV2 jack, only ever used AV1 because it is located 'behind' and not visible. These are my novice theories.

Also noted several similar LG queries but none had resolve
