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 o

Bought a new 65" Smart TV, all the preoaded apps You Tube, Netflix etc  are restarting after couple of minutes with "this app will now restart to free up more memory" message.

Best solution I have found. Download a screen share app / Tv cast when you sync your phone to Tv and play a movie or tv show via the Tv share app on Tv it dose not crash.  Works 100%

Sorry to hear that but it doesn't surprise me at all.  The memory is probably on the board, it cannot be customized.

I agree LG has been a little cheap on the memory, it chokes on it's own basic functionality.

I close apps running in the background on mine, not sure if it's a placebo or not, but I haven't seen that message in a while.

Another option is to get a Roku box or similar and use that for streaming

LG wanted me to send the TV back again to have the screen replaced

I asked if I sent it would it have the original fault repair at the same time. Was then told it was user error and the TV should never have been repaired in the first instance.

At this point I rang up the shop where I bought the TV and explained it was not fit for purpose.

The shop agreed and asked if I wanted a replacement or refund.

I have now got a Samsung TV and have had no issues with any of the apps

Even though I told LG I wasn't sending it back for repair they still sent DPD courier to collect it

Would I buy another LG product?  NO

U.K .based?  I think the UK has more consumer protections, at least from the evidence in this forum and similar.

How long had you owned it ?

LG "smart" tv not too smart! Ive had this tv a while and the browser is loosing more and more sites.  If I had known they could not be updated I would not have wasted my cash. The attitude of LG regarding the lack of browser updates is deplorable. NO MORE  LG GOODS FOR ME!.........Waist of money! 

My advice is unplug it and take it back, your problems are just beginning. And why should you buy a Chrome Cast or set top smart box when your new LG "smart"  tv should do as its advertised to do.?

Samsung TV's also offer a limited browser.  I don't think any TV (as far as I know) allows you to install a third party browser

I had the same problem when using the Guide.  The following tip from another forum appears to resolve the problem: Turn off TV and unplug from the mains.  Press and hold the power button on the TV for a good 10 seconds.  Wait a further 30 seconds and then plug TV back in and turn on.  Worked well for me and did not loose any personal settings unlike a full reset.

My partial solution to running out of memory over and over:

 Go to Settings / General and make sure "Quick Start+" is NOT enabled.

 If you run into this "restarting app to free up memory" problem there is no need to unplug from power or hold power button, just switch it off and on again using the red button on the remote.

With "Quick Start+" disabled you will need to wait 5 seconds or so after it comes back on before it becomes responsive to the remote, but you will find there is some more memory available and the problem will almost always not happen again for a while.

TRY INSERTING USB DRIVE

Hi..used to have the same problem & tried the "20 second on/off button steps" but the problem keep coming back. Yesterday, I've noticed that the problem has gone for a quit some times (maybe about 1-2 months).

Then I've realize that there was a usb drive (pendrive) inserted in the usb slot at the back of the tv..maybe it has been there for about 1-2 months back (I've remembered the last time I use the usb slot to watch a movie). The "restarting problem" have gone for good this time.

Maybe you guys can try this method..inserting usb drive (any usb drive)16235636794317814032248109380839.thumb.jpg.0cd906b9d2dca448eb8d57a21ecdfeb6.jpg in the usb slot behind the tv. It works well for me. Cheers...

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      Subtitles as well as all html elements beside video disappear on every website after 2 minutes. The only way to bring them back is to activate cursor with magic remote. This started happening around the beginning of July when new LG browser update rolled out. I managed to get around this by resetting TV to factory settings and evading browser update. This worked until 23rd of July when Web OS update came along . Thinking that problem might be solved i installed it. Turns out this update just integrated this browser error into the OS and now even after resetting to factory the problem cant be avoided. LG had just made the error which could be evaded by downgrading browser mandatory instead of fixing it. This is disgrace. If I had a company with 5 employees the update with error would have never entered circulation and even if it did I would not issue another update which would make error impossible to evade. LG has only billions of dollars and tens of thousands of employees and they do not notice such a major problem even after they have been informed by the users.

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....

      I have a 49UJ634V television. When I install the YouTube app from the content store the app starts to reboot with the pop-up “out of memory app will restart”  but this is then with everything . Live-tv, guide, etc  
      this is a app problem beacause when I delete the app everything else works fine again.

      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.

      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.

      Try to manufacture 'smart tv's' with sufficient memory to actually run the WebOS apps you claim they can run without those apps crashing with 'out of memory....' errors. This has plagued LG TV's for years and LG still do nothing about it. Memory modules are really low cost items and 32Gb  would be a minimum. This might also negate the necessity of having to use separate USB Hard Disk for basic recording and time machine functionality to work something other smart TV manufacturers managed to achieve years ago.
