Some .jpg photos are not loading, only thumbnails.

Question

Hey, I have a LG OLED65CX TV (latest WebOS) and  some photos from my Synology NAS are not loading, only in thumbnails like this:

 spacer.png

Most photos work perfectly but some not. They are scans from a photobook and then individually cut in Zoner but that shouldn't matter right? Here are properties of one of the photos

I really don't know the reason my TV and it makes me really mad since it took a long time co scan these.

Weird thing is I also scanned other positive film photos and they work great on TV.

Do you know what might be the problem?

@OnlyCORE Have you checked that you have the latest firmware for your TV? It is 03.21 .18. See:

        (you can download it on a PC, transfer to a USB stick - follow the README file for that).

Also check that your Synology NAS has the latest firmware and software app layers, and that the TV Internet connection is solid (i.e. LAN cable, or if WiFi check with a phone to see what the WiFi symbol (signal strength) shows for the band that the TV is using (i.e. 2.4GHz or 5GHz). If on 5GHz, check by logging into your router, go to WiFi Advanced settings, check that the CHANNEL within the 5GHz band is not higher than 100 (some TV's do not work well over 100), usually channel 36 or 44 works well.

TV, NAS and apps are all running the latest software. 

TV is connected by cable and by strong 2.4 GHz connection (both, because screenshare from phone doesn't work over cable - another bullshit)

@OnlyCORE Thanks for the feedback.  I suspect you are using an Apple product for screen-share? If so, it is a common problem with the LAN connected devices, because some routers do not pass certain broadcast packets (initialization/negotiation data packets) between the WiFi and the Ethernet ports for the LAN side, for the AirPlay protocol to work properly. That is NOT the fault of the TV, it is usually the router firmware (a bug), or a security setting being too restrictive.

It may cause odd issues having BOTH LAN and WiFi connected to your TV at the same time, and if the WiFi 2.4GHz is working, then I would recommend you disconnect the LAN cable and retry your issue with the WiFi side only active.

FYI: the 2.4GHz band has a MAX throughput of 300Mbps, so if you DO have a dual-band router, AND the TV is close enough to the router for the 5GHz band to be strong, you can get much higher bandwidth via that (depending on your router model, and TV model, but I think around 900-1200Mpbs is common).

@td47 No Apples, only Android phones. My router is on another floor so 5GHz is very weak.

I tried disconnecting LAN cable but that made things worse. The TV couldn't see my NAS with only 2.4GHz connection.

I tried to copy some photos on an external drive and directly connect it to the TV and it couldn't show them either (like in the first picture) and also without thumbnails. So the problem on the  TV side.

What is wrong with these pictures? Every other device can show them without a problem.

@OnlyCORE Thanks for the feedback. Can you please clarify about the thumbnails. Is it correct that ALL of the JPG images DO get the thumbnail on the SmartShare player, but certain ones just fail to display, and show the "broken file" image?

If that is the case, can you please compare the properties of typical ones that DO display OK, with a few of those that don't? It may be that you have found a subtle limitation or bug in SmartShare, for instance the number of pixels, or the DPI, or even some other property, that the inbuilt player cannot handle (but other smarter photo viewers CAN workaround). The problem is that SmartShare has not been updated since 2018.

Is it possible that you can test any of the  failing ORIGINAL images that you have, prior to them being altered via Zoner? Do you have the latest build of Zoner? I see that ZPS now has build 315 dated 9th March 2021, so are you able to try that and "redo" a failing one from its original? If you are using an older 2019 version, I see that there was a bug fixed regarding the failure to write the DPI property properly into the image EXIFF so maybe Smartshare cannot render properly for those.

Thank you for your answers.

I'm not sure what SmartShare is but I'm using the Photo & Video app that was preinstalled and all the other photos are working even those also saved with the same version of Zoner but some scanned photos that were cut and saved are showing a broken picture. The all have the same DPI but different resolution since they were hand cut. Thumbnails are showing only when played from NAS, not directly from external HDD. Here are properties of some photos. The working ones are scans of positive film also edited and saved in Zoner. I'm not sure about the version as I don't have it on me. For sure it's not the latest version.

I tried opening one picture in Corel and saving it and it worked, but it cut the size by around 75% so loss of quality and I have hundreds of these photos. Is there another app on LG content store I can try if it's as you said old version from 2018?

EDIT:

I tried checking the metadata of different jpg files everything is the same apart from resolution and DPI but this:

All the working ones have Encoding Process: Baseline DCT and all the not working one have Encoding Process: Progressive DCT

Can this be the reason?

Yes, I think I spotted an article about Progressive Scan media having a limited resolution or pixel count on TV displays, so that could well be the issue, thanks for spotting that difference. If you can redo them with the latest Zoner version, and always use the Baseline encoding, that should provide better compatibility between display devices.

It’s an odd one, the LG doesn’t handle most things well, although in fairness it even played am MP4 video.....I tried viewing some JPGs saved with photoshop, PS has various save options one was progressive and another optimised, can’t remember exactly, but wanted to save with the best quality as had made some changes....Nb does t view Tiff files at all.....but these JPGs just would not view on my LGOLED55C9PLA .....had to re save as standard.....thought the LG should be more compatible.......but if I wanted a TV to do anything else than watch good quality TV / video I would have bought a Panasonic 🤯

      It’s human nature to want to belong and to feel loved. After all, humans are social animals. Whether it’s visiting grandma’s farm every summer or the extended family gathering on dad’s birthday for the past twenty years, these events reinforce the sense of belonging and warmth that connect one generation to the next through the sharing of values and experiences.
      LG’s recently launched #CareForWhereYouLive campaign is all about creating warmth and a feeling of belonging through advanced LG technologies. With LG Therma V air-to-water heat pump (AWHP), for example, anyone can create a warm and comfortable environment for family gatherings no matter how cold and windy it is outside.

      The lead video in the heartwarming campaign begins with a elderly woman waiting patiently at her doorstep for her grandson, who is coming to stay with her. In a series of touching vignettes, we see how she cares for him as he grows from boy to teenager to man, and how she created the foundation for him to one day create a warm, loving home of his own. And when the time comes when grandmother can’t wait on her doorstep anymore, she will know that her grandson and his family will be in good hands with LG Therma V.

      More sustainable than conventional heat pumps, AWHP systems use advanced technology and simple physics to move outdoor air indoors and vice versa, all while using less electricity and for greater energy efficiency. LG’s AWHP solution offers reliable space heating and hot water supply all year-round, without the use of any fossil fuels. Better for the home and the planet, LG’s sustainable system minimizes electricity consumption by an incredible 75 percent by using air drawn from outside the home as a heat source.1

      At up to four times more energy efficient than a traditional boiler, LG Therma V is a cost-effective heating and hot water solution for any home. Recognizing the financial and environmental benefits of AWHP systems, many European governments are now offering tax reductions and other incentives to encourage more residents to make the switch to these low-impact solutions.2

      #CareForWhereYouLive is the latest in an ongoing series of LG initiatives presenting simple ways that everyone can help do their part to ensure a better tomorrow. It follows LG’s successful #CareForWhatYouWear campaign encouraging people to adopt a more sustainable approach to their wardrobe.
      To see how LG Therma V can help create warm, sustainable homes where families can keep cherished traditions alive – and create new rituals to pass on to future generations – please follow the .

      1 Comparing LG Therma V R32 Series and Electrical Boiler under Low Temperature and Average Climate conditions. The ratio indicates general figure for understanding purpose. The result may differ depending on the actual operation and usage environments. Therma V uses 75% of natural energy absorbed from outside air and the rest of 25% comes from electricity, significantly reducing CO2 emission compared to oil or gas boilers.
      2 Governmental support for homeowners switching to AWHP solutions may differ by country.

      Where do I go about reporting issues with webOS? I contacted tech support but their best answer was unplug the TV and plug it back in, well that's not a real fix.
      I worked on Mac OS X for 15 years in the kernel and client layers and I have found a number of issues with webOS along with reproducible restart conditions. Ideally I would like to make it a better OS as it affects me directly as a user... and I tend to own products for a long time.

      hello
      we just bought the LG OLED 65C1 tv.  on our previous Samsung tv we were able to use a Samsung sound bar connected via hdmi and wireless headphones (that uses a the charging base plugs  into the audio port on the tv and then red and white leads that plug into the charging base )
       
      for some reason we can't get the sound bar and headphones to work at the same time any more?
       
      we have tried plugging sound bar into optical port rather than hdmi and the headphones into audio port but still we can't get them to work at the same time.
      what do I need to do to get both sound bar and headphones to work at the same time??
       
      thanks
