How to Fix “Your Device Does Not Have Enough Memory To Run This Experience” error on Roblox

In most instances, you get the 286 error code when your device does not have enough RAM to process the game. However, the error code may also appear due to a bug or glitch in the system.

We have compiled different ways to help you fix this error code. You should go through them accordingly until you get one that works for you.

1. Free up space by deleting apps and files

To get rid of the error, you need to free up some space on your device. A sure way is to delete a few apps you do not use often.

You can also delete some files, including photos or videos that you no longer need. This will give you enough space to get Roblox working again.

2. Force close all open apps

A quick way to free up RAM on your phone is to close all the apps that are running in the background.

You may not think much of them but keeping apps running in the background takes up space on your phone. Closing these programs will free up some space momentarily on your phone. This space may be enough to get Roblox working properly again.

To force close all running apps, swipe up from the bottom of the screen. You will see a grid of running apps, swipe up on each app or to the side (depending on your phone type) to close them.

If you are using an Android device, you may also be able to close them all at once by clicking on the “Clear all” button at the bottom of the page.

3. Log out and sign in again

If freeing up space does not eliminate the problem immediately, you can try more complex options. Firstly, you can log out of your Roblox account and close the program.

Then, force close the app and open it again. Log into your account and check if the error is fixed.

4. Uninstall and reinstall Roblox

This method is a bit unusual, but you can try this if none of the other options work.

First, start by deleting Roblox on your device. To do so, simply tap and hold on to the app and select “Remove App” or “Uninstall App.”

Once that is done, you should go to the Play Store or App Store and download Roblox again.

5. Update Roblox to the latest version

The reason you may be facing the issue could be due to using an outdated version of Roblox. Older versions of Roblox contain bug fixes and issues that could hamper your gaming experience.

Head to the App Store or Play Store to check if there are any new versions and update the game if it’s available.

6. Clear Roblox cache

A corrupted cache could be the culprit. On Android, you can easily clear the Roblox cache and data to fix the issue.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Force close the Roblox app.
  2. Open the Settings app.
  3. Go to Applications.
  4. Find and open Roblox. It may be under the “Installed Applications” page.
  5. Go to the Storage tab and tap on Clear App Cache.
  6. Next, tap on Clear App Data.
  7. Now go back to Roblox to check if the issue is resolved. You may be prompted to sign in to your account.

7. Contact the Roblox Support team

If all else fails, you should reach out to the Roblox support team to report the issue. They should be able to assist you in resolving the problem.

To contact Roblox, fill out the Support form here. Enter all the details that they require including your username, email address, and the device that you are using.

Next, provide a detailed explanation of the problem in the “Description of issue” textbox. Make sure to include the following details:

  • Roblox version
  • The error displayed is “Your device does not have enough memory to run this experience. Exit back to the app”.
  • The error code is 286.

Wrapping Up

The Roblox error code 286 has hindered players’ experiences on the platform. The main reason for the issue is due to having low space or RAM available on your device. By closing all apps and deleting apps and large files, you may be able to resolve the problem.

Now, you know the best ways to fix the error. Apart from the standard solutions we have explained in the guide, you can also use a VPN or change your network connection if the problem persists. As a last resort, you can always report to the support team.
