Locations that Appear in the LG TV Screensaver
LG has meticulously selected screensaver images to capture the essence of some of the world’s most stunning locations.
These scenes transport viewers to different corners of the globe, right from their living rooms. Let’s take a closer look:
Hallstätter See – Salzkammergut, Austria
Nestled among the Dachstein Alps, Hallstätter See is a serene lake in Austria’s Salzkammergut region.
Its turquoise waters contrast beautifully with the majestic alpine backdrop and quaint villages like Hallstatt dotting its shores.
This picturesque location offers a tranquil and breathtaking view, a glimpse into Europe’s untouched beauty.
Berlin Cathedral/Berliner Dom – Berlin, Germany
Standing tall in Germany’s capital, the Berlin Cathedral is a testament to neo-Renaissance architecture.
With its magnificent dome, intricate facades, and the Spree River flowing by, it’s a symbol of Berlin’s rich history and its resilience.
This screensaver offers a taste of urban elegance, combined with the grandeur of ancient European churches.
Bled Island and Castle – Bled, Slovenia
The enchanting Lake Bled is like a scene straight out of a fairy tale.
Dominated by a historic castle perched high on a cliff and a charming church on an islet, this screensaver showcases the romance of medieval Europe.
The calm waters of the lake reflecting the alpine surroundings make for a dreamy visual experience.
Le Méridien Bora Bora – French Polynesia
Transporting viewers to the heart of the South Pacific, this screensaver captures the idyllic setting of Le Méridien in Bora Bora.
Think pristine white sands, overwater bungalows, and crystal-clear lagoons teeming with marine life.
This image is a slice of tropical paradise, making every viewer yearn for an island getaway.
These handpicked locations, spanning from the cool European terrains to the warm Pacific islands, provide a diverse and awe-inspiring visual journey for LG TV owners.

LG TV Screensaver Time & Other Settings
LG TV screensavers are set to automatically appear after two minutes of inactivity. This timer cannot be adjusted, so you cannot alter the settings to make the screensaver appear after more or less time.
The only settings you can adjust for your LG TV screensaver are its on/off status, which pictures it displays, and on OLED TVs, if it displays the clock and weather.
Wrapping Things Up
Screensavers are a great way to customize your TV’s appearance. Unfortunately, your options are limited on LG TVs since they do not allow you to add your own photos to the gallery.
However, depending on your LG TV model, you will be able to select which photos you’d like to display and, in the case of OLED TVs, even show clock and weather widgets.
If your LG TV keeps reappearing, consider disabling it or trying to reduce its frequency by disabling Quick Start+.
Remember, you cannot change your screensaver’s timer, so it will appear after two minutes of inactivity as long as it’s enabled.
