How to clear your LG Smart TV cache?

There are two simple ways to delete all of your TV’s cache in just a few seconds:

A. Restart Your TV to Clear its Cache

Over time, LG has improved its technology and now TVs (all newer models) automatically clear the cache whenever you restart your TV. This helps prevent any app/software malfunction to keep your entertainment uninterrupted.

Press the power button on your TV’s remote and restart your TV to clear its cache data.

So, if you started seeing any issues with any app on your LG TV, the first troubleshooting step is to restart your TV. 

B. Use The LG Memory Optimizer

Newer LG models come with a “Memory Optimizer” feature. This feature works to remove unused apps and clear some of your TV RAM/cache.

Follow these steps to use this feature:

  1. Press the Settings Button on the TV Remote.
  2. Select OLED Care.
  3. Select Device Self-Care.
  4. Next, select Memory Optimizer.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have an old model LG TV, how do I clear its cache?

An older model means your TV has no “Memory Optimizer”. This means you will need to clear its cache manually. Here are the steps:

1. Navigate to the Settings menu on your LG TV

2. Next, locate the Storage or Memory option

3. Now, select the Clear Cache option

4. Confirm your selection and allow the TV to clear the cache.

Can clearing cache data slow down the TV performance?

Clearing the cache can cause a short-term performance decrease in your applications because the temporary data they usually access has been wiped out.

Whenever I clear the cache, some apps require re-login, why?

Cache data also stores your login session data and when you clear the cache, the login data is also cleared, which is why you may need to re-login to some apps after clearing the cache of your LG TV.
