@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.

      My new gallery series OLED TV died after less than two months. For weeks now, I have been calling LG support for help. The have created multiple repair tickets, but they have not been to get a repair technician out to fix the problem.
      LG keeps trying to outsource the repair to 3rd party service companies. Does anyone know how I can find a local tech that works for LG to come out and fix it?
      If not, what recourse do I have?
      Thank you.

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....

      Recently bought an LG Smart TV in Ireland. 43Nano796NE .
       
      There is a button on the remote for Google assistant. Nothing happens when it is pressed. I downloaded the ThinQ app and have paired it to the TV and Google home assistant. I can turn on off the TV via Google and at best turn on Netflix via Google . Just wondering am I missing something else here given the button on the remote doesn't do anything? There is  also a buttonn for opening up Disney plus and that doesn't open up the app. The app button for Netflix and Prime does work. Maybe a first world problem only. Apps for Ireland are not great, would love to be able to download Virgin media player and All Four.
