Hi Andy, I have the same problem on my 65UH8507. I've called the service center in my country, Romania. So ,  follow these steps:  1. Uninstall the apps you do not use 2. Unin

You can simply uncheck the option (Quick start+) and the problem should be solved. 😉😉

Unfortunately the Uncheck Quick Start only worked for a short while. No other fixes found that work. Returning this TV. Sad, all my previous LG units have worked fine.

Hi Andy,

I have the same problem on my 65UH8507.

I've called the service center in my country, Romania.

So ,  follow these steps: 

1. Uninstall the apps you do not use

2. Uninstall the app you use frequently. Mine was Netflix.

3.Turn off and unplug the TV set  and wait for 5-10 minutes.

4. Plug the TV set. Turn on

5. Reinstall the app you use frequently.

 

It worked for me. I hope this will works  for you either.

 

Regards,

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the post with instructions to resolve this problem I have a LG 43UJ630V with this problem when watching YouTube so will give it a try.  Would be helpful if LG could be bothered to fix this major software bug or at least reply to all the people who are posting about it.

OK here are the results:

Turned Off Quick Start: made no difference to faulting app YouTube.
Uninstalled YouTube app and unwanted apps, turned off/unplugged TV & waited 15 mins then re-installed YouTube app: made no difference.

YouTube app still restarts to free up memory halfway into whatever I am watching.  Come on LG fix this please.

Would seem LG TV's simply don't have sufficient internal memory to run these apps. Support is frankly useless and the only solution is to return the set for a full refund as no fit for purpose or put up with this. IMHO the sets are overpriced, have only average sound even through LG soundbar, flacky WebOS and standard definition broadcast TV is below average quality of picture. HD is slightly better and 4k video, when you can find it, nothing special either. Would not recommend or buy LG again.

November: YouTube app for WebOS was updated but sadly the 'This app will now restart to free up memory...' error, which has been reported for over three years, continues to plague these poor TV's so I assume LG & Google are incapable of fixing the issue or simply don't care and LG certainly are not going to refund all their customers conned into buying this rubbish let alone send engineers round to install adequate hardware.

@MartleaI think the memory is not the problem, is the software. It seems that it needs to buffer a lot to keep the video fluent. This will have to be revised and limit the buffer operation to a safe value. Is not that it can't play the content, is about the handling. Strangely, I tried to use ethernet connection which is faster, but the problem is worse. I will try experimenting with an even faster connection than the one I currently have. 

Also, the Netflix app worked good before the firmware upgrade so it can't be the hardware. Will try to see tomorrow if it still works with the new upgrade.

I agree with Stefan about excessive  buffering. Ethernet connection to the router makes no difference, and no one else using the connection.  I am on an fttc fibre line at 50Mbps, so it should require only minimal buffering.

I have tried switching off and disconnecting the supply, also resetting to factory defaults etc etc to no avail.

When I bought the TV at first, about two years ago, I did not notice the problem., and was able to watch a Netflix movie and YouTube concert all the way through.

I notice this thread started in February. Does LG not take any notice of this forum?

Just got off the phone to lg support. I was told the web browser shuts down when attempting to stream video ON PURPOSE! Furthermore, once you stream anything from the internet, the cache fills up, does not clear, and prevents the installed apps from functioning properly.  I was told that the OS is a web browser NOT a web streaming service and if they allow customers access to stream video they will be in breach of their contractual agreement to the companies who have apps on the TV. This clearly doesn't happen on tablets or phones, so their logic for creating a sub par product is utter bollocks. I specifically asked the salesman if I could stream video from the internet and was told absolutely yes. When I pointed this out to Lg customer service they re-iterated that a web browser does not confer the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

      I don't find any latest updates for 55UH850T this model. Most of the applications says that WebOS 3.5 or more is required. This model TV is with 3.4 WebOS version.
      Please let me know in case if anyone has any information on this.

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

      After recent update my browser changed, now, it looks better and fluid but control play and pause buttons don't work in browser video player anymore.
      Is there a way to fix it? Maybe a downgrade?
      It is really annoying can not play and pause the videos

      TV MODEL: LG 43UJ635V
      DATE OF PURCHASE: 21/11/2017 (4 days ago from post date)
      RETAILER: ARGOS UK
      WEBOS VERSION: Can't check right now but after I got the TV I updated straightaway to 4.7.XX
      INTERNET SPEED: 75Mbps Down / 20 Mbps Up
      Hello, I've recently purchased the LG 43UJ635V, as soon as I turned it on and went through first time setup I noticed there was a bit of lag in the animation when I pressed the home button (the moment all the tiles 'bounce' up), however whenever I get off that menu the animation is smooth and everything else is fine. This always happens, I have tried resetting the TV to its initial state and nothing has changed. - Just wondering if anyone else has had that issue?
      At one point I changed some of the image quality settings and the whole OS just started lagging making it difficult to navigate so I had to reset the TV  for the 3rd time.
      Also, occasionally when using apps such as YouTube or the web browser the app will restart with a notification in the top right saying the restart was to clear some memory. Although this isn't too common, I've seen other posts from months ago about people having a similar issue but the apps constantly restart.
      I close all recent apps which doesn't change the lag on the home menu but I haven't seen the restart notification in a while which seems like a good sign but I also have been using the internet browser much.
      With all the negative experiences I've read about, (related to the memory and general lag) I'm not sure whether I should return the TV or not.
      Thank you.
      TL;DR: Lag when pressing the home button and all icons appear but no lag when returning to the current app, occasional app restarts due to a low amount of memory.
