Your Samsung Tv requires memory (Ram) to install new apps. If you are unable to install any new app to your Samsung TV, and get the error notification “TV memory is low” then in this post I am going to tell you the possible solutions to fix this issue.

Samsung Smart TV "Memory Low Or Full

This is a very common problem, especially in the old Samsung TV models. I have gone through many users’ responses in the Samsung Community to look for solutions. And whether you like it or not, there are very few possible solutions.

Try these methods to fix the “Memory Low” issue on the Samsung TV

  • Uninstall any irrelevant apps.
  • Clear App cache.
  • Clear Browsing Data.
  • Reset Smart Hub.
  • Use an external USB Card or USB Flash Drive.

Why Are You Getting Low Memory Error Notification?

Your TV requires memory (Ram) to install and run apps on your TV. Depending on your Samsung TV Model, your TV may have 2 GB to 16 GB of memory. Part of the memory is preoccupied by the operating systems, and system apps. Rest of the memory you get to install the apps of your choice.

For some reason your TV memory gets full and you are getting this error. And if you have the Samsung TV with just 2Gb or 4Gb of memory then installing just a few apps can full your memory.

Also, the part of your Samsung TV memory that is preoccupied with the system apps, cannot be uninstalled.
