Disable fireworks screen saver

Recommended Posts

I understand why the feature exists.  I will gladly accept resposibility for disabling the feature, knowing the possibillity of burning my screen.

It is NOT ACCEPTABLE to me to spend this kind of money on a high-end television and not be able to do something as simple as display Karaeoke lyrics on it.  Is it possible that the application developers can insert a function that keeps the screen saver from kicking in?

How does a Karaoke app manage to go entirely unattended for multiple hours? Don't people select songs? It's an inherently interactive experience. I don't think it is a great thing for an app to send false user activity indications to the OS. Maybe it could do something when microphones are turned on/off or when people are singing if mechanisms allow.

There's an option now to disable the screen saver, it was added when my 2018 75UJ657A was pushed to 06.00.04. I I noticed a few other things too, like being able to turn off the images it shows when there is no signal. Personally, what bugs me about screensavers on most devices isn't that they happen, but that they show some kind of animation stuff and keep the backlight on. It seems to me that the screen would be best saved by having it just go to sleep like my laptop and phone do.

      I've seen an older thread on this topic but it doesn't look like anyone found a solution to disabling the screen saver, so I'll try a new one.
      On virtually all my LG TV's (I have three OLED's and two LCD), the screen saver interferes with my music app (like Plex, Spotify or Amazon Music). I mainly use Plex for playback of my music which is stored on a central server (NAS) and from the app loaded on a Fire TV stick or cube. After about 20-30 minutes, the album art and other related music information (lyrics, song title, duration, etc) all goes black. If I run Plex (or Spotify) directly on the LG TV via the LG Content store app, the screen saver with fireworks always comes on in about 2 minutes. 
      I've tried all the different methods to disable the screen saver function including turning off the Timers, Auto Power Off,  HDD Storage, etc. I also tried opening the hidden menus by pressing the mute button 5 times but that menu didn't have anything relevant. 
      Interesting is that the screen saver doesn't come on when using Spotify on a Fire TV stick or if I playback music through a USB device. But i don't use those methods often, mainly Plex to access my music server where I have about 500 CD's stored in ALAC format.
      Has anyone found a way to disable the screen saver function? I know the logic for having it (to prevent OLED burn in) but I'm not leaving the same image on for more than the song duration (about 3-5 minutes).  It's annoying to check the screen for the a music title or see who is on only to find a black screen looking back. Thanks for any help.

      Hello,
      We just bought this LG tv1   LG 43UR73006LA (2023).
      The screen mirror from my MacBook gives our LG tv as an option but when I click it, it says there is no connection possible with '[LG] webOS TV UR73006LA'
      Also when I want to add the tv to my Apple  HomeKit, it is not possible.
      The TV is on the same WiFi network and I checked if there are any updates available. 
      What can I do?

      II hope in a future update we are given the option to disable the annoying pointer on the Magic Remote.
      VERY ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!

      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?
