Error msg re: remote control battery

Joining in

I have the following error message on the screen - “Please replace the batteries in your remote control”.

I’ve done that (twice) and can’t get rid of the message when watching Netflix. I can get rid of it on live tv - it reappears when I change channel but pressing ‘TV’ gets rid of it.

I have checked all the cables, rebooted the box, repairs the remote, etc. TV is LG.

Obviously driving me insane - any suggestions?


Hey @rbtwilliamson Thanks for reaching out to us on the Virgin Media Community forums. 👋🏼

I am sorry to hear about the issues with the TV remote you are experiencing.
Can you confirm which TV box you have and which remote?
Check here and let us know which one it is and we can go on from there.

Kind regards,
