Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

anyone know how to fix?

This is a feature built into the TV to prevent image retention and burn-in.  It is designed to come on after a "static" image is detected on the screen after about a minute.  No way to disable it, nor should you want to.

As to why it showed up all of a sudden, it may have been deployed in an update.

Utahbob : thanks for replying, but your response is of no use and very naive . Do you really think we would be posting this to the board, if it was from “static” images.  ‘Nor should you want to “ ....? Really .?

 

OF COURSE WE WANT TO DISABLE  AND WE SHOULD AS ITS MESSING WITH WATCHING TV, WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS DEVISE.  the purpose of this devise is not to show fireworks screen savers but allow us to watch our tv signals.

 

perhaps you post something more useful in future

@Chaoskcw - thank you so much for your "helpful" reply.  The original post does not say whether he is watching live TV, streaming, or what.  If you pause the screen, the screen saver is designed to come on.  If it's coming on during a show that hasn't been paused, it's a problem with the TV and he needs to call LG for help.  People do much more with their Smart TVs than just "watch TV". 

If you think my post was "of no use and very naive", all your post was designed to do was give me a hard time.  Mine was to try to help the person with the problem, even if it didn't turn out to be the correct solution.

 So you tell me, which post was of more value on this forum?    If you want to troll people on-line and make yourself feel better, you should try another forum.

This is very annoying. This firework screensaver comes on when you play the heart radio app or Deezer etc. They have features such as karaoke where you can read the words but the screensaver kicks in!

You should be able to turn this off.

You shouldn't insult others when you have no idea what you're talking about. Utahbob is 100% correct. The screensaver is the first line of defense put into the TV to prevent burn-in and image retention, which is a concern with OLED technology. If the screensaver comes on, it is literally because you are NOT watching the TV, but have whatever you are watching paused for over two minutes.

 

Fun fact: when you hit 'play' or any button on the remote, the screensaver will instantly stop and whatever you are watching will resume.

It isn't hurling an insult to point out that someone who doesn't know what they're talking about doesn't know what they're talking about.

I dont think you know what you are talking about?

😉joke.

Anyway i still find it very annoying as the screensaver comes on when not wanted.

The option would be nice as there are many apps that need to screen visible but goes into screensaver mode.

Turn it back on when you need it would be ideal.

I definitely agree we should have more granularity when it comes to the settings. LG was *so* great about giving us an absolutely obscene amount of it in our video settings, but I can't turn off the irritating "no input detected" pop-up, modify the screensaver in any way or even change the rotating wallpaper. I mean, that's BASIC customization, and ridiculously easy to implement.

I don't know anything about Deezer, but it seems odd that the changing subtitles wouldn't be enough to untrigger the screensaver. Conversely, I find it frustrating that the screensaver doesn't work with external components like either of my Playstations, my 4K disc player or my Chromecast. It doesn't kick in at all. If it's *that* critical, LG (and I personally agree that it is), then the input choice shouldn't matter. If you have something like that, maybe try accessing Deezer through it instead of directly through the TV?

The  strange thing is that Deezer is an app from the LG store through the tv and you cannot read the words scrolling down as the screen saver kicks in. Even the bar at the bottom which moves and shows playing time is not enough to untrigger the screensaver.

I have had this happen twice in the last 18 months on my 55" oled.

  Screensaver kicks in right in the middle of a show on my cable box.  There is no reason for it to do so.

I have found that in my case (don't know if this will be true for others) that it is a problem with the HDMI connection.  Somehow the tv does not recognize the HDMI connection anymore.  All the other HDMI connections work properly.

I have been able to fix it by unplugging the bad HDMI and switching it to another HDMI.  I leave the bad HDMI port unplugged overnight and the next day I restore the connection and the problem goes away.

To verify that this is the problem go to the screen where you name the all the connections and choose the bad HDMI:  the tv will not switch to that connection.  It will switch to all of the other HDMI connections without any problem.

      I have two very thin but very distinct parallel, vertical lines on the left of my screen. Is this a hardware or software problem?

      Hi there,

      a few weeks ago i got the 43uj6309 LG SmartTV and now i got a question to this TV.

      My plan is to install a Ambilight for the TV itself, without HDMI input (as I got none). I red the last days a lot about it and it seems its not that hard.
      The only problem is, every topic is about grabbing the video source of an HDMI device, not the TV screen itself.  As i dont use any HDMI Device and just stream TV, Netflix and Amazon my ambilight setup has to get the video information from the TV directly.

       So i came up with an idea... maybe its not (yet) working or just a stupid idea...

      Is it possible to stream the Video signal of the TV to any device trough my network at home? Screensharing or miracast work the same way, dont they? There are Apps like the WEBOS app, where i can scroll trough my photos, so there must be a way to share my TV screen to another WIFI device in the network.

      If that works or if  there is any way to get the f*** video signal of my TV to the raspberry Pi my ambilight setup would work.

      so thanks to anyone who is into the topic and knows someting about it. 
      peace
