While Netflix will function just fine for you most of the time, just like everything tech, it does run into errors at times. In this article, we’re going over the Netflix error code M7353-5101, looking at its causes and giving out a few solutions to get rid of the error.
The most common reason for error code M7353-5101 is that one of the Chrome extensions is hindering Netflix’s operations. Here are four ways to fix the error.
Restart your PC
While this might seem like an understatement when we said the steps to fix the error are elementary, but restarting your device can go a long way in fixing a lot of issues you might be having.
A simple restart can help clear any cache files or background processes that might hinder Netflix from running smoothly. Moreover, if you’ve recently updated an app, especially Netflix, restarting will really help.
Shut down the PC and boot it again to get rid of any temporary bugs causing the Netflix error code M7353-5101.
Disable Chrome extensions
Chrome extensions can also be the cause for Netflix error code M7353-5101. You should try disabling them and see if that fixes the error.
Type chrome://extensions/ in the address bar of Chrome and press Enter. Then disable the Chrome extensions one by one to see which one is causing the error.
Once you narrow down the one, disable it when streaming Netflix on Chrome. Note that the error can be caused by more than one Chrome extension too.
Update Google Chrome
Updates for Chrome are pushed periodically. These not only include new features and enhancements but also bug fixes, which could potentially resolve the Netflix error code M7353-5101. To update Google Chrome on PC, follow the steps given below.
Step 1: Open Google Chrome and then click on the three-dot button at the top right of the screen.
Clear Chrome Cache
Stale browser cache can often cause problems with websites you often visit. In such a case, it’s recommended to clear the temporary cache files and have the browser download them afresh.
- Open Google Chrome.
- On the top right corner, click on the three dots, which will open a menu.
- Click on More Tools.
- After that, select clear browsing data.
- A new tab will open. Choose the time range (which is the same as Android).
- Tick mark the options that you want to clear. The options include download history, cookies and other site data, cached images and files, along with a host of other options like passwords and other sign-in data, autofill form data, site settings and hosted app data.
- Once you have selected the options, click on Clear data at the bottom right of the box.
Alternatively, you can also clear cache with a hard reload.
- Activate the Chrome Dev Tools by pressing F12.
- Right-click Reload option.
- Select Empty Cache and Hard Reload.
Empty cache and hard reload will wipe the cache clean and will load a fully updated website. This is the best option to remove the cache files completely. The browser will cache the files again afresh.
