How do I fix Error UI-800-3 on Netflix?
According to Netflix themselves, error code UI-800-3 appears when the information on your device needs to be refreshed. In other words, restarting your device will help to flush out any old data, and allow Netflix to start operating again. The basic steps to take, regardless of device, are as follows:
- Restart your device
- Clear the Netflix app cache data
- Uninstall and then reinstall Netflix
It is however, sometimes a little more complicated. It isn't just a case of treating every device in exactly the same way. In some cases, it is as simple as restarting the device, then signing back into Netflix. For others, it means uninstalling and then reinstalling the Netflix app. A detailed explanation for each device can be found here.
What exactly is Error UI-800-3?
Usually, this error is an indication of a problem with the Netflix app. This can be caused by corrupted cached data, most typically. The steps outlined above will, in most cases, be all you need to do to resolve any issues with corrupted data.
