Re:Visio BluRay Mod#VBR344. I have had this unit for 2 years

This answer was rated:

Re:Visio BluRay Mod#VBR344. I have had this unit for 2 years and use it for NetFliux, Vudu, Pandora, etc. Suddenly, it will NOT connect to Netflix. Comes back with "not connected to internet"! I've been with both Vizio & Netflix techs for days and brought the entire situation down to it's the BluRay-Netflix connection. I receive all other services except Netflix. I've put the ethernet cable directly into the BluRay. I can get Netflix on my computers, just not the BluRay. I've now been told by my IT techs that the BluRay has to be re-set as it's not accepting my passcodes correctly now. I use AT&T IT service. Can you run nme through a reset?

comp_audio :

Keep in mind you will probably have to re-authorize your apps, but I am not 100% on that.

Customer:

Ill try this and be back to you. Thanks

comp_audio :

My pleasure. I am eager to hear the results.

Customer:

It did NOT work

comp_audio :

Did you find the menu for resetting to factory?

Customer:

Yes

comp_audio :

So it did perform the factory reset then correct?

Customer:

I must assume so. Keep in mind, this process was pretty much what the Vizuio tech had me do several times this morning

comp_audio :

Ah, ok. So everything else is working except the Netflix right?

Customer:

Right

Customer:

Shall I remain here?

comp_audio :

Ok, tell me the error message that comes up when you try to access Netflix from it?

Customer:

Not connected to internet

comp_audio :

And all other apps on the BR player access it fine?

comp_audio :

Or do you just use the BR for netflix?

Customer:

BR?

comp_audio :

Sorry, that means Blue Ray.

Customer:

Yes, all other apps: VuDu, Paandora etc work fine. AND, Netflix will come in over my computer just fine

comp_audio :

But all the other apps are on the BR and they work ok?

Customer:

yes

comp_audio :

ok, hold on a moment while I check a couple things okay?

Customer:

okay

comp_audio :

Strange one, but please try this...

Customer:

OK

Customer:

What?

comp_audio :

Disconnect and Reconnect the Netflix application Launch the Netflix app. Using the arrows on your remote, enter the following sequence: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up Select Deactivate and exit the screen. Restart the Netflix app and sign in to your account. Test the Internet connection on your device.

Customer:

I'm printing it & will try it. Be back to you. I'm leaving this "open"

Customer:

Wait...how do I disconnet & reconnect the Netflix app?

comp_audio :

OK. When you get back, just message me and I will rejoin the chat session.

comp_audio :

Customer:

Are you here/

comp_audio :

Yes I am here

Customer:

OK, how do I disconnect & reconnect Netflix app

Customer:

I tested the IT connection; it's fine

comp_audio :

I know it is somewhat confusing but did you try this
After launching Netflix (even if it errors out) Using the arrows on your remote, enter the following sequence: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up Select Deactivate and exit the screen.

Customer:

Customer:

WEell, thta was a surpise. I go a Netflix screen that says "Netflix AccountOwner.....device not registered"

comp_audio :

That is good, now you should be able to register the device like you did when it was new, and you should be good to go.

Customer:

How did I do that?

comp_audio :

There should be a screen there that says to go to a website, and enter some numbers or something like that on your screen now.

Customer:

Oh, OK. Thanks

Customer:

Yopu did gooooooood
