Is your Samsung TV Slow? Here is How to Make it Fast.
One of the common issues with Samsung Smart TVs is they often respond slowly and ruin your entertainment experience. For instance, you cannot navigate between apps, or one of the apps, such as YouTube, Netflix, or even Paramount Plus, does not load or gets stuck on the load screen. Now, this is not the case only with these apps but also with most apps on Samsung smart TV, and the solution to this issue is to clear the cache and background apps.
But why does this issue occur in the first place? The reason is simple: we often directly turn off our Samsung Smart TV without exiting the app, or we navigate to other apps without closing the existing apps. This leaves the app running in the background and consumes your crucial RAM or other memory resources.
Closing the apps before turning off your Smart TV or exiting the apps before switching to another app will help your Samsung Smart TV to run smoothly. To close the existing app, long-press the back button on your Bixby remote, and you will be redirected to the home screen or app drawer.
How do you Clear Cache, Memory, and Background Apps?
Clearing the app data, cache, and memory will reduce the load on the CPU performance, and you can see your Samsung Smart TV respond much faster.
To clear cache, active apps, and boost memory, here are the steps you can follow,
- Turn on your Samsung Smart TV and navigate to the quick settings (the gear icon).
- Here, you will find the “TV Device Manager” option; click on it.
- You can now find options to clear running apps and memory boost to remove the buggy data and improve CPU performance.
- Click on “Clean Now” and wait for a few seconds.
By doing this process, you release the unused resources on your Samsung Smart TV, and it loads much faster and no longer lags. In my opinion, it is best to clear the unused memory on your Samsung Smart TV at least once a day if you are using it for 12-16 hours and multiple apps. If you are not a frequent user, you can follow the above process once in a few weeks.
Frequently Asked Questions [FAQs]
The common reason for sluggish performance is the accumulation of background apps and cached data. When apps are left running or not properly closed, they consume system resources, leading to slow responses. Regularly clearing cache and background apps can significantly improve your Smart TV’s speed.
If you neglect to clear the cache and background apps, your TV’s performance may suffer. Over time, the system resources become cluttered, causing apps to load slowly or get stuck. By taking a few moments to clear the cache and apps, you ensure a smoother and more responsive viewing experience.
The frequency depends on your usage pattern. For heavy users who watch TV for extended periods and use multiple apps, it’s advisable to clear the cache and memory daily. If you’re a casual user, performing this task once every few weeks should suffice. Regular maintenance ensures optimal performance.
Clearing cache and memory won’t impact your personalized settings or login information. It primarily removes temporary data that may hinder system performance. Your preferences and login details remain intact, ensuring a seamless experience after the cleaning process.
