@Marco V Some owners have found that if you have a PVR/set-top-box atached to your TV, and they are both using WiFi, and are both active, then the TV can detect a TV programme, BUT without those, viewing via the in-built web-browser only provides a data stream. It seems that the rather "clunky" and feature-sparse WebOS is not smart enough to actually check screen changes for the screen itself, and "assumes" that the image is static .

Other users have found this works:

1. Set Quick Start+ to “Off”

2. Turn your TV off, wait 5 minutes, turn back on

Hi, thanks for answer.

 

but turning tv off didnt help, i tried.

i dont use the webbrowser functionality often,

most i stream through xbox to tv and then its not a problem

but it’s very weird that the tv has a built in screensaver which cant be turned off by user.

 

and which cant recognise that the screen is actually changing constantly so no risk of burn in

 

please lg give update to be able to disable this

when i go away from tv i turn it off anyway(standby)

@Marco V Did you manage to find the "QuickStart+" under the TV settings and turn it off?

Web Browser updated automatically and started getting the Fireworks screensaver after 20 min of video streaming.

LG Oled65CX PUA, Firmware 03.23.06

webOS version: 5.2.3.29006

tried it all mentioned above with no results. Called tech support and got asked to disable power saving mode and quick start. Still same problem. 
 

As a final resort… I reset the TV to factory default. Lost all my settings but now no longer get the screensaver after 20 min.

I found something that helps, reset TV to factory settings, before that write down your region and backup programs to usb, then after restoring, set region and restore programs, new browser is gone, but every time you run browser it  asks for update and you have to press launch. I found it in a thread and also users suggested to watch movies for free in watchsomuch.tv which was a great site and is fully compatible with WebOS browser. If pay you can watch outstanding 4K qualities on LG OLED

I never accepted the LG_App_Store User Agreement when first opened after factory reset. It does not allow me to go further and be able to search/instal other apps, but my browser newer updated again- which I believe might have been the issue in the first place.

Now, I can continue to use the pause and play buttons on the remote for web streaming (previously disabled by the update) and no longer get the fireworks screen after 20 min.
 

Terrible sacrifice! Anyway got all my apps on either Apple TV, Google Chromestick or Amazon FireStick.

      I have a 2014 LG Web os smart TV    ( 65UC970T ) and I don't have any access to apps.  There used to be a selection of apps and now there's none. How do I access them?

      LG TV  SJ800V.  (2018 UK model).  Was  06.00.20  then became  06.00.25 and made no difference to this issue:
      Search page on YouTube had a microphone symbol.  This enabled Voice Search.
      Just recently, (whilst being 06.00.20),  MICROPHONE VANISHED.  It can't be got back.  I know of two other SJ800V TVs  with the same issue.
      I know of another two similar LG TVs - but different model numbers - which have no problem.  
      LG says it's probably a YouTube issue. Tried uninstalling and re-installing YouTube but no good... 
      What can be done? This TV is only 4 years old and I and I really don't see why I should have to  go and buy a new one...

      Hello, I have LG OLED CX and recently the Youtube app has incorrect geographic data- CH. I am from Slovakia, the TV has never been to Switzerland. Nor physically, nor virtually (VPN). I am getting CH ads, which I dont mind so much, but I am afraid of possible in app geo restrictions.
      I already tried everything, even resetting the TV to default.  No other TV app is affected.
      Anybody please advise.

      I finally updated the software on my TV, and now I have to force a reset whenever I want to turn it on. (Unplug for 60 seconds.) The TV will not turn on without a reset, from either the remote or the power button. Once it's on it responds normally to the remote.  It doesn't matter how long the TV's been turned off - when I want to turn it back on, I have to reset it.
      Has anyone else had similar problems?

      I have an LG Smart TV and I wanted to watch the US open tennis final live from Spain.  I subscribed to Eurovision to get access to the game, but then I couldn’t find the Eurovision app on my TV.   Where is it?  How else could I have watched the live tennis?
