Really, though, just check out some of the content we're recommending. I'm using the internal app, myself. It's not going to just rear its ugly head right away, so let the show run. It'll happen.
I will definitely take a look when I get back. FYI, I'm not doubting that you are seeing this, but I just don't think that we should be forced to go into a service menu to "fix" the problem.
I rummaged through LG's knowledge base, and the #1
causes for random screen dimming issues are as follows:
1) Energy Saving
2) Eco Sensor
Obviously, both should be set to OFF.
So, I'm starting to think that possibly the Eco sensor is the culprit, and turning off ABSL disables it.
From reading other posts, this behavior is somewhat random, and in the case of
and a few others, there's no problem. Statistics will show that people are 10x more likely to complain than complement, so I don't expect an avalanche of "I'm not having any problems." postings to suddenly emerge.
My first thought was to blame Netflix, but if it had something to do with metadata in the stream, it would show at the same time mark every time. But that's not the case. Essentially, it's bit of a moving target.
Regardless, a full factory reset will not delete your custom DV calibration file. Obviously, you will need to copy down the settings, or more likely your calibrator left you with spreadsheet so you can put it all back together.
