How to Troubleshoot & Fix Not Enough, Insufficient or Out of Memory Error Message on LG Smart TV

To fix out of memory error when launching apps or accessing websites on LG smart TV, there are several methods you can try on your streaming device:

Clear Browser Cache

  • Click on “Clear Browsing Data”
  • And disconnect the TV from its AC power source.

Turn on Private Browsing

To ensure your web browsing is private, go to the browser settings and choose “Clear Browsing Data”, then switch on “Private Browsing”.

Turn off/on the TV

Turn off and turn back on the TV to clear system memory and close opened apps.

Reset the TV to Factory Settings

If your LG Smart TV is still running on Android OS, you can use this method to fix this problem.

  • First, turn off the TV and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
  • Release the power button.
  • Then press it again to turn on your TV.
  • Select “Yes” when prompted to reset to factory settings.

Change the Video Quality

Find a video file that you want to play back on your LG Smart TV but can’t because of an OOM error message. 

Next up: change the video quality from high to low or medium depending on how much memory storage space is available in your device’s internal memory storage capacity.

If possible, use only one audio track (monaural) instead of stereo tracks as this will reduce audio bitrate usage which uses more CPU power than mono tracks do. 

Therefore, it consumes less RAM as well as CPU resources when playing back videos stored locally within internal flash memory rather than over network connections where data transfer rates are limited by bandwidth limitations between two devices connected via WiFi connections–and if possible delete old recordings from previous sessions; before recording again.

Remove Any Apps You Don’t Use

This may sound like a bit of an overkill, but it is definitely a solution that works. If the out of memory error persists after doing all the above-mentioned things and there are no known issues with your device or the streaming service, then it might be time for you to start deleting some apps on your television set.

You have several options here: you can either choose to delete old or useless apps by going into Settings > Apps. 

Alternatively, if you have downloaded a lot of third-party applications in the past and now want them gone, then go ahead and select Default > All Apps under Apps & Features section in Settings menu.

Finally (and most importantly), if there is any particular app causing problems with your device or causing errors such as “out of memory” message appearing frequently on screen – this application should be removed immediately or else things could get worse over time!

We hope these tips will help you solve the out of memory error on your LG Smart TV. If none of them work, contact LG support for additional assistance.
