LG47 smart tv(LB670V) "out of memory" problem

by kenpine1 / January 22, 2015 4:30 PM PST

I am aware that smart tv's have their limitations compared with computers and they are not usable on sites that need more memory/computing power.

My problem is this - every time I open a site that contains more info than avarage it works awhile and than shuts the browser down telling me: app needs to close not enough memory.

However this tv has a external PCMCIA card slot on the backside. So my question is this: will it be any help for suchs a problem to buy this PCMCIA card and if so what exact model should I get?

It's the RAM, not the disk, that's meant in the message.

Such a card is for storing data, just like on the hard disk on your PC. I was wrong calling it a disk.

Folk are trying to use Smart TVs as web browsers and seeing this issue. It's not you causing this. The Smart TV in its current incarnation is barely able to browse a lot of sites and fails on many. It's nothing you are doing wrong.

It you feel the site needs to work on a Smart TV then tell the web site to support Smart TVs. We already see sites supporting Smart Phones.

Restart the TV

your browser on this television is not designed to support type of video files. Those video files can be played only with the associated Apps, such as Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
