Netflix Error UI-800-2 usually indicates that the information stored in your streaming device — Roku, Firestick, Smart TV or Blu-ray player, among other devices — is causing the issue and needs to be refreshed.
Here are five ways to fix the Netflix Error UI-800-2 on any of the aforementioned or other devices you use to stream Netflix. While they may seem elementary, these seem to get the Netflix error fixed in most cases.
Restart your device
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.
If you’re running a Roku, set-top box or a streaming device, you should wait for up to three minutes before switching on the device. Unplugging directly from the power source is even more ideal.
A simple restart can help in clearing any cache files or background processes that might be hindering Netflix from running smoothly. Moreover, if you’ve recently updated an app, especially Netflix, restarting will really help.
