@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?

By the way: Many owners posting on here seem to think they are posting to an LG owned facility or site forum.  Please be aware that this Forum is ONLY an LG TV Owners and enthusiasts peer-to-peer help forum to exchange ideas and experiences, and advice and possible workarounds by other like-minded enthusiasts. This forum has NO business link or influence over LG, or their product capabilities (or lack of), and does NOT provide any lobbying capability to get things fixed.

Your best action for you (and any other posters on this thread) is to contact LG Support DIRECTLY in your country of use, and register your complaint there, so that they can more accurately gauge the affect of the lack of functionality.

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.

      Hi, I have a web app running on a webos 2018 TV. It is enhanced with aria-labels and such so that a screen reader should synthesize speech from the focused elements. I have turned on voice assistance of course. On another well known platform I have speech, but on this system it is silent. I know I can make it speak using webos API, but for now I'm looking for this screen reader approach. Is there anything I can do to enable it?

      My TV LG 43LX761H model goes blank screen with screensaver after 1 hour while it is on web browser. 
      Anyone have any solution for this? I tried to update firmware but the software is not available in any of the LG TV Support Sites.
      Thank you.

      Company Showcases Breadth of Technological Capabilities at
      Global Communications Conference in Seoul

      SEOUL, May 17, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing a diverse range of innovative, new mobility technologies, including connected vehicle solutions leveraging 6G and AI, at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2022. Open from May 16-20 at COEX Convention & Exhibition Center in Seoul, South Korea, this year’s ICC adopts the theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity for Smart World’ and features a hybrid format combining physical exhibits and in-person attendance with virtual content and online participation.
      One of the IEEE Communications Society’s two flagship conferences, ICC typically attracts around 2,000 attendees from over 70 countries. The annual event offers exciting keynotes and robust technical paper sessions as well as informative and engaging tutorials, workshops and industry discussions.
      In keeping with ICC 2022’s intelligent connectivity theme, LG is showcasing its OMNIPOD concept car; a fully autonomous, connected vehicle that can act as an extension of one’s living or workspace. LG OMNIPOD employs the unique, floor-to-ceiling Meta-environment Screen and a host of other advanced technologies to adapt to passengers’ unique needs. Able to serve as practically any kind of space, from an office or recording studio to a video-editing workroom or even a lounge, the OMNIPOD is a future mobility solution that completely reimagines the in-vehicle experience.
      Additionally, LG is displaying its world-class 6G communications technologies, including Full Duplex Radio transmission and reception tech that maximizes frequency efficiency, and a power amplifier device, jointly developed with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), for the wireless transmission and reception of 6G THz data. The company is also demonstrating its Soft V2X (with V2X standing for “vehicle to everything”) smartphone solution, which enables a vehicle to communicate in real-time with nearby vehicles, pedestrians and infrastructure to create a safer driving environment. The company is also presenting its on-device AI chip, which can be applied to various home appliances providing a smart life experience.
      “As the automotive industry is transitioning to a software-enabled ecosystem, LG is proactively developing next-generation technologies,” said Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO at LG Electronics. “Based on its advanced 6G and AI tech, LG will continue to strengthen its capabilities in various fields such as 6G communications, smart mobility, metaverse and robotics to take the customer experience to new heights.”
      Named an IEEE Fellow last year in recognition of his research achievements and expertise in the field of communications, the CTO will be delivering a keynote titled ‘Technology Advances in Connectivity and Software Defined Architecture for Smart Mobility’ at ICC on May 17. Mr. Kim will introduce the company’s direction regarding the transition to the software defined vehicle (SDV), as well as its latest solutions and services based on SDV and smart mobility technology.

      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?
