We had the same issue.  Unplug your tv and press the on/off button on the tv, hold it in for 10 seconds while the tv is unplugged.  Then wait 20 seconds more and plug the tv back in and turn it back on.  This solved the problem for us.

Thank you very much Ang because I believe it was your suggestion that solved mine problem !!!Just in case someone wants to follow my steps resolving this super frustrating situation this is what I did :

My tv model LG OLED55B7V, bought it 2 months ago , started crashing Netflix app again and again ...

 

1) turned off FAST STANDBY/OPEN

2) turned off WIFI , I have only Ethernet

3) did factory reset 

And still the same ....😫😫😫

...but then I did what Ang suggested and voila!!! Problem solved . I watched a full episode of OZARK and Netflix app was fine .

I will report back if anything goes south the rest of the day ...

thanx again Ang!!

I'm having the same issue with version 04.30.70,  LGwebostv uh6035 is the model information that i got off the tv.

For me, it was crashing out when i had an Apple TV connected to the HDMI 1 (i had to resort to watching netflix via the apple tv since when i used the built in app on the tv, it would crash)

But now, even when an app isn't used, and it's just on HDMI1 it crashed with the same error.

I called support and they suggested that i do a reset. i did that and i then tried using it again, and so far i haven't had any issues. The apps take a while to launch, but that's about it. I'm going to keep an eye on it, and call "advanced technical support" if it still doesn't work.

This is SO annoying.

Just got our 50UH5500 set up yesterday, was looking forward to streaming The Americans straight from FX website.  Gave up after about 5 of these "App will restart" crashes.  And finished  watching on the iPad. Not going to put up with this, will happily return and let Best Buy sell it open box to some other sucker.  Where is the LG support input on this forum?  I'm brand new as of today, but is it just us b****ing at each other (WITH each other??)??

Try doing the reset, so far it hasn't crashed out on me.

What reset? A factory default reset? How to do the reset? Thanks for the info.

I'd also like to know this!

Yes, a default factory reset to the TV. Go to the settings button on your control (gear icon)>all settings>general>reset to initial settings.

It's been a few months since my post and i haven't had it crash out on me since.

I also had this issue with my 65sj850v model. it is brand new 2017 model actually. I turned off Quickstart+(I am not sure the exact name of it), Delete unuse app.

Connect Lan instead Wi-Fi. All solution was not helpful.

My issue was only happened when I was using Web Browsing and watching movie clip.  And I realize that it was happening only few specific web page made by Java. I thought this problem comes from that web page. since I am not using this webpage and not accessing. Problem is not happening again.

I'm having the same issue and I would love to take some of the advice posted by resetting to factory. The problem is I can't keep the settings open long enough to reset. I keep getting that same message "this app will restart to free up more memory". It's very frustrating. I've always been a fan of LG but this isn't making me love the product at all. 

Does anyone have any other ways I can clear my memory. I own a 55UJ6300.

I have the same issue with LG 43UJ630V  when playing YouTube via WebOS and it is really annoying. Fortunately I also have a Roku streaming stick with YouTube and all the other apps and this works perfectly so far but it would be good if LG could fix their WebOS or TV software bug. As always with these companies the usual advice to 'reset' never works it just means having to set up the TV all over again.  So far very disappointed with this WebOS , the guide takes forever to load and cannot be clicked to show  genres. Trying to freeze picture just triggers the 'cannot record to this storage device' error even though it does manage to record to USB stick via record button or guide. Even my 5 year old Toshiba could record to USB storage so LG are years behind with this. I have also removed/deleted all the unwanted 'apps' I never use hoping this might 'free up some memory' but it hasn't. Anything else I could try - apart from buying Panasonic?

I had this same behavior when the TV would try to update to the latest firmware (This app will now restart...).  The issue was that my home firewall was blocking access to the LG servers.  Temporarily turning off the web filter/firewall allowed the update to progress without issue.  I'd suggest that LG check to see if the download servers are available and print out an appropriate message in there next update.

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 confir the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

No solution as far as I know - other than buying a reliable TV of course - LG support are useless on this issue, suggestions to disable Quick Start+ don't work. Neither does holding Home, Close App etc. From my correspondence with these 'support' people I believe there is no solution while LG use this old WebOs phone app. Seems that LG are OK with screen tech but rubbish with the software to make TV's 'smart'.  Send it back & get a refund because it does not do what they advertise it as being able to do. 

By the way just got another YouTube update for my WebOs TV and it just makes the 'restart' problem worse - so clearly no tech liaison with Google about this either which indicates LG just don't care.

I'm happy to support and collaborate with anyone who wants to file a complaint to trading standards. I specifically told the customer assistant to be sure to record the conversation as I expected many more complaints to arise, and  believed a law suit is in the not to distant future for LG. 

Guidelines from trading standards; You should report a company to Trading Standards if, for example: they misled you into buying their products or services. 

Fill out this form and mention Trading Standards. You should describe the problem and name the company. Take screen shots of all the complaints in this forum to include as evidence.

Thanks for the replies of 15th January - your time and input much appreciated.

I have checked YouTube works via screen share/WiFi from my mobile

Also checked on dads TV that Roku box works fine also.

Hence I conclude there is a lack of physical memory installed on LG TVs - i.e. a design fault and product does not meet 'Smart' TV operating requirements.

I will speak to Tesco (bought online) and see their thoughts and then post back on here.

Hello inbloomwithyou,

I had the same issue with my LG  UJ6300.

I took some advice I read on this site and I reset my tv from factory settings and went in and turned off the Quick Start. Sertings/General/Quick Start (toggle to off). I haven’t had a problem with this since. 

Also important to note that when i used my cable remote to turn off the tv it doesn’t actually turn the tv off. I find when I turn the tv off using it’s remote it clears the cache. 

Hope this helps. :)

I have two LGWebOSTV's  and have had no trouble with them after more than 1 year and a couple of firmware updates. Both are decently configured with smart apps. I began having this issue however after I added a new WiFi AP to me LAN and set up my LivingRM LGTV to access the AP as a secondary connection capability. Then I started seeing this issue with the "Restarting APP to Free Up Memory" over and over again.  After reviewing the settings and restarting the TV several times the problem persisted. I then went back to the network settings and realized that BOT the Wired AND WiFI Connections were enabled, therefore, in MY Mind, there were TWO (2) instances of the LGWebOSTV running simultaneously and competing for the Memory available to run their tasks. I disabled the WiFi Connection and the "Out of Memory" issue went away!!

  • JohnV: Interesting and definitely something else owners with this issue can easily check for. In my case I went into settings\network\wi-fi and made sure  that wi-fi was disabled. Although I noted that that would also disable the Wi-Fi Direct option which may be important to some people.
  • I have left set connected via ethernet and will monitor YouTube etc. for crashes meanwhile.

      Hi everyone, 
      I wish LG would consider updating their Codecs list or at least give us a way of installing this codecs in our TV manually. i know my TV is capable of playing a lot of stuff but i'm always stuck with "not supported" for most of the media i have. 
      One of the most wished stuff i'd love to see is 
      Added support for H.264 10bit (still very popular and used a lot) 
      as well as Opus codecs (its a Free codec and its getting a lot use recently especially with H.265 MKV videos) 
      Like i said, please add this codecs and more or at least give us a way of doing it ourselves. i know there might be legal issues and some codecs are payed, so just let us install it ourselves instead. 
      Thanks.

      For a More Eco-Conscious Way of Living, LG mycup Makes Tumbler Users’
      Daily Lives Cleaner and More Convenient

      SEOUL, Dec. 20, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to unveil its innovative tumbler washer, LG mycup, at CES 2024. This unique cleaning solution features state-of-the-art technology to enhance the daily hygiene of tumbler users, while its sophisticated design embodies LG’s commitment to environmental sustainability. With the increasing number of eco-conscious consumers using tumblers, LG mycup simplifies the cleaning process and encourages the regular use of reusable cups and tumblers.
      This practical washer lets users clean one tumbler at a time by simply placing it inside and selecting from two cleaning courses – Quick Wash and Extra Wash – through the LG mycup app. The cleaning process is then conveniently displayed on the upper display panel to let users check wash status and receive an app notification when the cycle is complete.
      Both courses utilize a 65-degree Celsius hot water cycle to ensure thorough and sanitary cleaning. By employing bubble jet technology, the Quick Wash course cleans the inside of the tumbler in just 30 seconds. And for the thorough cleaning and drying for harder-to-clean residues like dairy, the Extra Wash course utilizes an integrated air-drying design to clean and gently dry the tumbler with a multi-directional water jet and powerful hot air.
      Designed to take up minimal space, LG mycup’s slim and compact design maximizes space utilization without compromising performance. Its space-efficient dimensions1 make it ideal for various environments, from trendy cafés to busy offices and educational institutions. The washer’s simple yet modern design seamlessly integrates into any interior, combining functionality and aesthetics.
      As part of LG’s ESG commitment, Better Life for All, the innovative tumbler washer incorporates eco-conscious technologies from LG dishwashers to save water. For example, LG’s Bubble-Jet technology significantly reduces water usage while maintaining exceptional cleanliness standards.2 What’s more, LG mycup aims to encourage more people to use tumblers as a way of living a low-carbon lifestyle that reduces disposable cup waste.
      “The compact, easy-to-use LG mycup washer cleans tumblers fast and effectively with its powerful cleaning capabilities, which promotes a sustainable lifestyle that protects our planet for future generations,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to develop products that impact our customers’ daily lives and the environment in a positive way, as we pave the way to a cleaner future.”
      Visitors can experience LG mycup alongside the company’s latest innovations at its CES booth (#16008, Las Vegas Convention Center) from January 9-12.
      # # #
      1 Product dimensions: 230mm width, 420mm 430mm depth, 900mm height (excluding display height).
      2 The bubble jet nozzle applied to the Quick Wash mode of the LG mycup tumbler washer for the field test provides 17 percent reduction in water usage. Based on the joint research result conducted with Seoul National University. Results may differ depending on load compositions and environmental factors.
