How To Fix “LG TV Out Of Memory” Issue?

If your LG TV displays an “out of memory” error message, there are several steps you can take to resolve the issue:

  1. Restart your TV: Unplug your TV and press the on/off button on the TV, hold it in for 10 seconds while the TV is still unplugged. Then wait 20 seconds more, plug the tv back in, and turn it back on.
  2. Clear cache data: LG smart TVs have two types of cache data — app cache and browser cache. To clear both types of data, follow these steps:
    • Push the Home button on your remote.
    • Click “System Settings.”
    • Select “App Cache” or “Browser Cache” and delete the data.
  3. Close recent apps: Close any apps that you have recently opened to free up memory.
  4. Delete inactive apps: Remove any apps that you no longer use to save storage space.
  5. Update your TV software: Ensure that your TV’s software is up-to-date. Check for available updates by following these steps:
    • Push the Home button on your remote.
    • Select “Settings,” then “General.”
    • Choose “About This TV.”
    • Select “Check for Updates.”

If the issue persists, you can also try clearing your browser cache:

  • Press HOME → Open Browser from the Launcher bar.
  • Click the Browser Settings icon (kebab menu) at the top right of the screen.
  • Select “Clear Browsing Data.”

Remember to keep at least 25% of your storage available at any given time to prevent the “out of memory” error from occurring.

Or simply you can use an extra USB drive for additional storage.
