Monitor settings:
Brightness: 12
Red: 51
Green: 41
Blue: 46

If by any chance, anyone knows how to turn off the breathing light when I turn off my computer without powering down the monitor? Power LED is already turned off under General settings. I am afraid of breaking the joystick and would like to leave it untouched as much as possible.

I have a small room and my computer is right next to my bed, the breathing light literally shines right into my eyes stun.gif

Interesting, because for me Gamma OFF looks like crap and everything is green. Gamma 0 is perfect. Gamma 1 and 2 is too dark.

I don't think you can turn off this LED completely, you can set it to off while monitor is on but I didn't find any option to turn it off while monitor is off. I am just powering down my entire setup every time I stop using it.

Question for others I have the 34UC88 and whenever the monitor resumes from standby or if I turn the monitor off and then on again, the monitor sound goes from being muted to unmuted. I have tried this on multiple inputs and it is the same and with or without a device being connected so it is not the connected device that is causing the monitor to unmute.

This is annoying because most of the time I want to keep the monitor muted. Currently, whenever I resume from standby, I have to mute the monitor every time I start using it again.

Since I have this monitor connected to a Mac via HDMI, the computer is not able to control the monitor volume with the keyboard so I have to either launch the onscreen control app or go through the button menu to mute the monitor every time.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue or could this just be a problem with my specific monitor? I would hate to exchange it to find out that all of the monitors work the same. Ideally, I would just like to figure out how to keep the monitor muted.

Finally I found proper camera profile on my 1000 years old mobile phone so I finally could make blb photo that reflects how it looks in fact:

I don't have such issue, my monitor only makes small peep when it turns on, thats it. But I have external sound card and speakers connected to it, so until I disconnect it monitor speakers are not working anyway, so I am not sure if it is unmuting everytime.

I am hearing crackling noises coming from my monitor (34UC88) I had been browsing the internet on HDMI through a laptop when it started happening. Should I be concerned and contact LG support right away?

Can you describe the problem more precisely, or even better, record it?

It sort of sounds like the static popping/cracking sound you hear from TV's, just not as loud.

Thinking about pulling the trigger on the 29 inch 2560 x 1080p model, am I going to see much of a difference performance wise in games and what not?
Moving from a 1920 x 1080 60hz monitor, and if it matters I'm running an r9 390x overclocked to 1150/1700.

2560x1080 is somewhere in the middle between 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 in terms of performance. You should be okay with 390X.

Here is video showing 390 na 970 performance in 1920x1080 and 2560x1080 at the same time

Can you please try the following using the monitor joystick control:

1) Go to Input: Switch to an empty input.
2) Go to Menu > Quick Settings > Volume: Mute the volume
3) Turn the Monitor Off
4) Turn the Monitor On
5) Go to Menu > Quick Settings > Volume: Is the volume still muted or is it unmuted?

At step 5, on my monitor the volume is unmuted again. What about yours?

I would love to know if your monitor is working the same as mine, because I have one week left to return it which I will do if it is defective, otherwise I will just live with the issue.

Thanks!

If I mute it by pressing joystick down then it comes back unmuted every time just like yours. But if I lower volume manually to 0 then it stays muted.
