What causes the Paramount error code 111?

According to Paramount, error code 111 is caused when your computer shuts down from a power failure or sudden power outage. However it can be caused by a number of different factors including but not limited to the following:

  • Internet connectivity issues.
  • Corrupt app or browser cache.
  • Server issues with Paramount. 

How to fix Paramount error code 111?

Here are eight fixes you can try out.

Check your internet

The first thing you should do is check if your internet is working alright. If you’re on WiFi, check to see if you have an active internet connection and good signal strength. If you’re on mobile data, check to see if mobile data is working and that you have good network coverage. 

Restart your device

At times, restarting your device can fix seemingly random issues. This also reloads all the files required for the browser to work in the memory, getting better performance and a clean cache. 

Check for server outages

Next up, check to see if there are any server outages. Although rare, server outages can leave services useless as there’s nothing you can do in such situations. You can check Paramount’s online status page or services like DownDetector to see if there’s something wrong with the servers. 

Clear your browser’s data

Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Paramount to work.

Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.

Disable ad blocker

Intrusive third-party ad blockers can often interfere with the way sites work on your browser. If you see error code 111 when using Paramount Plus, it’s likely caused by your ad blocker blocking some of the site’s functionality. Try disabling it and visiting the site to see if your problem is solved. 

Sign out of the Paramount app

Signing out of the streaming app and then signing back in again can also help freshen things up for the platform, removing any corrupt cache files so that you can access Paramount without any hassles. This also works with browsers on PC.

Reinstall the app

If nothing else works, try to reinstall the app on your current device. Reinstalling will remove all files associated with the app and then download them again, getting rid of any corrupt files that may be hampering functionality in the process.
