@Christonian Is the issue on any channel, only specific ones (e.g. HD).  Is it more so with animated films?

First, have you got any extra devices attached (e.g. BD/DVD player, AV amp [AVR], or TV cable box via the AV AMP into the TV eARC HDMI). If so, are ALL of those devices connected via good quality cable that cover HDMI 2.0 or 2.0a (often quoted as 2.1)?  Lower quality ones can be a loose fit and have connection or internal crimp issues.

Second, have you checked that you have the latest firmware update in that TV. I see that the latest might be 04.80.03 depending on your region (copied from AVFORUMS, user post dfa937)?

 If no joy with any of the above, I would get it checked or replaced under warrantee.

FIRMWARE INFO: "- 04.80.03 - KR, US, EU, June 2020

  • OFFICIAL CHANGE LOG: Apple AirPlay function improvement - (the rest of changes mentioned below are UNOFFICIAL, extracted from the firmware itself)
  • WebOS version updated to v4.8.0-52203
  • The device codec capability configuration for the EAC3 codec changed from 6 channels to 8 channels.
  • The device codec capability configuration (EDID) for the LPCM codec changed from 2 channels to 8 channels, so the 2019 models can Pass-Trough multi-channel PCM audio via eARC ---- this firmware update has a bug which causes eARC to incorrectly mark multi-channel PCM sample rates - rendering some AVRs/Soundbars mute
  • The list of CA certificates was updated.
  • Media server 8K video playback support added.
  • The max size of the saved EPG data was increased (size of the volume increased by 10MB).
  • Airplay application was added to the list of apps that are kept alive.
  • Built-In App-Updates:
  • WebOS Browser App (Chromium) updated (internal version didn't change).
  • LG Advertisement App updated.
  • Firmware updates of the following modules:
  • WIFI
  • Audio DSP
  • HDMI 2.1

@td47 

It has updated itself a few times since buying so I would assume it is up to date on all options

I was using netflix through the TV so no cable issues plus just upgraded them just in case before this to 2.1 48 gbps cables so when I get PS5 I will be able to take full advantage of it 

Using my TV as the main hub and only outputting Earc to AVR for dolby 

Seems to do it on everything like PS4, Switch, Plex and Netflix/Disney/Prime etc so not internet issues as when I game it is just single player games no internet needed

@Christonian Thanks for confirmation.I just spotted this on another forum for LG C9 flickering/flashing bright:

"Its related to the « Logo Luminance » setting...just turn it off and you will be ok".  I do NOT have a C9, so cannot verify that, but it is worth a go. Others said it fixed the issue.

that seemed to work for a few episodes and then started flickering again about 1-2 hrs of use

@Christonian Interesting that it fixed it for a bit. Sounds a bit like software/firmware IMHO. I would contact LG support directly to see if they know if it is a known issue with the C9 and that firmware update. I think I have seen other complaints about B7 and C9 flickering. Push the issue and insist on a replacement under warrantee if they try to fob you off.

      Has anyone been able to run Screen Share from a Windows 10 PC? Mine will not connect to the LG TV.

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

      LG Consolidates Position as Leader of Premium TV Market with Extensive Range of
      Large Screen TVs Leveraging Latest Display Technologies
       
      SEOUL, Aug. 29, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has announced that the world’s largest OLED TV, the LG OLED evo Gallery Edition TV, model 97G2, will soon be available for purchase in global markets. Specific launch dates for key markets will be shared in the following weeks.
      The 97G2 has an awe-inspiring 97-inch screen that leverages LG’s self-lit OLED technology to deliver immersive viewing experiences on a grand scale. With the arrival of its biggest-ever screen size, the company’s 2022 OLED TV lineup now boasts stellar 42-, 48-, 55-, 65-, 77-, 83-, 88- and 97-inch options.
      The undisputed leader of the global premium TV market for nine consecutive years,1 LG OLED has become the choice of millions of consumers worldwide. OLED TVs employ self-lit pixels that can be turned on and off individually to reproduce perfect blacks, incredibly natural colors and infinite contrast. Backlight-free, OLED allows for the creation of unprecedented form factors such as flexible and rollable TVs.
      At IFA 2022, LG will be showcasing the brand-new model, 97G2, as part of its expanded lineup of premium TVs, which includes a growing number of superb, ultra-large screen sizes designed for memorable home viewing experiences. The company will also show off the diversity of its cutting-edge display technologies, with models from its outstanding OLED, Micro LED and QNED TV ranges on exhibit at its IFA booth.
      According to a recent market research report,2 OLED TVs will account for 55 percent of the European premium TV market this year, and 66 percent by 2023. The report also forecasts that, in 2022, global shipments of TVs over 70-inches will reach approximately 14.9 million units, increasing to nearly 17.1 million units next year. With its widening portfolio of large and ultra-large screen OLED TVs, LG is well positioned to continue its dominance of the premium TV segment in Europe, and worldwide.
      One of the stars of LG’s IFA exhibit, the 97-inch LG OLED evo Gallery Edition TV utilizes the company’s OLED evo technology, α (Alpha) 9 Gen5 AI Processor and advanced picture algorithms to deliver lifelike images and a genuinely immersive, cinematic viewing experience. The 97-inch G2 series model also incorporates LG’s flush-to-the-wall Gallery Design, offering a seamless, integrated look that will instantly elevate the most luxurious home movie theater.
      Headlining LG’s stunning lineup of 8K TVs at IFA are the 88-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED 8K (model 88Z2) and 86-inch QNED TV (model 86QNED99). Both ultra-large models combine jaw-dropping size, the superior sharpness of the 8K (7,680 x 4,320) resolution and LG’s latest display technologies to make content of any genre more immersive. With over 33 million self-lit OLED pixels, the 88Z2 presents an amazing level of detail, along deep, dark blacks, infinite contrast and lifelike colors that remain true across a wide viewing angle. Meanwhile, the 8K 86QNED99 equips LG’s Quantum Dot NanoCell and Precision Dimming technologies to deliver sharp, vibrant images on its impressive 86-inch screen.
      Also on show in Berlin is LG’s massive 136-inch 4K Micro LED (3,840 x 2,160). This innovative home entertainment solution presents first-class picture quality on a spectacular scale, pairing micrometer-sized self-lit pixels with a modular design.
      Visitors to IFA 2022 (September 2-6) can check out all of LG’s latest flagship TVs, including the world’s first 97-inch OLED TV, at its booth in Hall 18, Messe Berlin.

      I want to be able to turn on my TV without it automatically launching a cable channel. ( or repeatedly asking me if I want to turn on the cable box).  Is there any way to "just' start with the home screen? Also when I've been watching something (app or cable) and go back to Home screen, it will go back to what I was watching if there is no input for a minute or so. grrrr. so annoying
