Can't get screensaver off



Hi everyone,


I just bought a new LG television for a lobby in the company.

It's a 55" LG Smart TV with WebOS.


This tv is to show the narrowcasting system. But after a few hours the tv gets in to something like a screensaver.

The narrowcasting is playing with the webbrowser from the installed apps.


Does anyone knows how to get the screensaver off?


Thankyou very much:)

I have the same problem.

TV model: 42LB630V

Upgraded to latest firmware version available on LG site, but screensaver continues to appear. All power saving and eco settings are disabled. It's very annoying. Tried to call to Lithuanian LG support, but they couldn't help me.

What else I can do?

did you talk with the Lg technical support? I am in contact with them but I dont know if I am loosing my time. the problem is related with the new firmware. in my case I have an Lg 42lb630v with an old firmware that doesn't have this problem, but the new ones I recently bought (that have the new firmware) have this problem and,  as far as I know, it is not possible to downgrade the new ones to previous firmware.

I have the same problem, is there already a solution? I want to show dynamic content in the browser. So, a screensaver is not needed. But LG support says, there is no user input, so the screensaver starts. I was wondering if I could simulate user-input with javascript on the website. Does somebody already tried that?

Hi, we have recently pursached five televisions model 47LB652V-ZA and suffer the same problem. We use them for showing a static webpage with some stats, but after one hour the screensaver starts. All ECO configs are off.


The webos version is 1.3.0-3216. I have updated one of them to 1.3.1-3220 with the same result.

My final solution was: exchanging the webos television for an older LG with netcast. The browser of netcast did not have this problem and I directly stopped automatic updating, before the LG-boys come up with an annoying update ;-) 


First I tried to build a webapp for the webos television. The webapp worked perfectly, but the same problem still existed. The screensaver started after a same period.

So do not put your time in trying to build a webapp!   


But if somebody knows the solution, I'm still interested. Building a webapp for netcast is more difficult.

      SEOUL, July 7, 2022 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced its preliminary earnings results for the second quarter of 2022.
      LG reported revenues of KRW 19.5 trillion in the second quarter of 2022, 15 percent higher than the same quarter the previous year. Operating profit for the second quarter was KRW 791.7 billion, expected to be 12 percent lower than the same quarter of the previous year.
      LG Electronics terminated production and sales of solar panel at the end of June this year and is treating the performance of solar business as a discontinued operating loss from the second quarter 2022 earnings announcement. Applying the same standards from the second quarter of 2022 to the same period last year, LG would have recorded a revenue of KRW 16.9 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 900.1 billion.
      These figures are the tentative consolidated earnings based on K-IFRS provided as a service to investors prior to LG Electronics’ final earnings results including net profit. Details regarding each division which will be announced officially later this month.

      TV model: 49 UH770T 
      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?

      Can someone inform me as to when (what generation) they removed the smart zoom feature from their TV's? I want to purchase a new OLED TV but I noticed their smart zoom feature was missing from their remote control. I have a 2016 LG TV that still has it and I use it all the time.

      I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.
      I am using wired network on the TV. 
      I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.
      If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.

      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !
