It typically points to a network connectivity issue that is preventing your device from reaching Netflix. Follow the troubleshooting steps for your device below to resolve the issue.

Smart TV

Restart your smart TV

  1. Unplug your TV from power for at least 1 minute.

  2. While your TV is unplugged, press and hold the power button on the TV for 5 seconds to discharge it.

    • If you can't access the power button or your TV doesn't have one, leave the TV unplugged for at least 3 minutes.

  3. Plug your TV back in.

  4. Turn your TV on.

  5. Try Netflix again.

Restart your home network

  1. Turn off or unplug your smart TV.

  2. Unplug your modem (and your wireless router, if it's a separate device) from power for 30 seconds.

  3. Plug in your modem and wait until no new indicator lights are blinking on. If your router is separate from your modem, plug it in and wait until no new indicator lights are blinking on.

  4. Turn your smart TV back on and try Netflix again.

Improve your Wi-Fi signal

If you're connecting over Wi-Fi and the above steps didn't help, follow these suggestions:

  • Move your router to improve signal strength. Reception is best if the router is in a central location.

  • Move wireless devices such as cordless phones or microwave ovens away from your router.

  • Elevate your router off the floor. A router on a bookshelf or desk has better reception than one that's behind or under furniture.

What to do next

If you complete the steps above but still can't connect to Netflix, contact your internet service provider. They can help you determine whether your router is set up properly.
