LG TV This app will now restart to free up more memory

This post describes how to fix the error "This app will now restart to free up more memory" which can occur when using apps such as Netflix on an LG TV after just a few minutes of use.

Resolution

To resolve the issue, unplug the TV then press the on/off button for 10 seconds.  Wait a further 20 seconds then plug the TV back in and turn it back on. Apps should now run without the error.

Edit: I didn't have to do this myself but one person who has left a comment said that using 'Clear Browsing Data' (in Web Browser settings) worked for them.

    1. On my TV, the on/off button is located to the right of the screen, on the side, as you face the screen.

  8. This did not resolve my issue. The bios was definitely reset. Also if I try to access LG settings while an app is running it will happen guaranteed.

  9. Ready to trash this TV. Nothing but connectivity issues. I will never buy another LG product again.

  10. It's not a 'permanent' fix if you have to do this every time. Happens to me on Disney+

  11. Howard, I appreciate the info, but in my case it does not work either. I'm using a 42-in LG that's about 2 years old. The wireless portion went out in about 6 months. It hasn't worked since. I'm not using any kind of Netflix or cable or anything, just digital rabbit ears. I tried the "hold the on button for 10 seconds" method, and it worked until I restarted my TV. I still have to do it every time I restart. I'm with the other poster, never again will I buy another LG product. Garbage.

    2. I have cleared the cache as the LG support recommends to clear the cache and it doesn't work Very frustrating when trying to watch items on other apps.

  14. This is so incredibly aggravating! I have to do this 2 or 3 times a day everyday! I'm not using any of the apps on the TV, just regular satellite channels through DirecTV!
