How to Clear Cache on LG Smart TV [Possible Ways]

Unlike other Smart TVs, LG doesn’t offer a dedicated setting to clear the cache on the TV. So, we have provided some alternative ways to delete the cached data from your Smart TV. If a particular app is not responding due to corrupted cache files, you can fix it by simply turning off the TV or closing the apps running in the background.

If an issue occurs while using a web browser, you can clear its browsing data to remove the cached files. In this section, we have explained all the possible ways to delete the cache files from your webOS TV.

When to Clear Cache on LG Smart TV

We recommend LG TV users clear the cache at least once or twice a month.
