Netflix not working.

My Netflix app wasnt working properly on my wii so I called Netflix and reinstalled the app (went through all the steps) and that whole day Netflix was working fine, except that when I tried to turn off the wii it just went on standby. That was yesterday, today when I went to use Netflix, it wasn't working again (a few movie titles load but nothing plays) so I tried to turn the wii back off but it's still on standby mode. Why can't I get netflix to work, and why is my wii on standby?

Your Wii is on StandBy because you have WiiConnect24 turned on.  When the Wii is on, and you push the power button, the Wii will go into StandBy mode, and may get updates for its channels over the internet.

 

If your Wii is on and you want to turn it completely off, press and hold the power button for a few seconds, and the red light will turn on, indicating that the Wii is off.  If you never want your Wii to go into standby mode, go into the Wii settings and disable WiiConnect24.

 

I personally leave WiiConnect24 on and always put the Wii in Standby mode when I am not using it.

 

I'm sorry, but I have no advice about NetFlix.

Re: Netflix not working.

I'm having the exact same issue. It's been going on for about a week now, and I've called Netflix and they didn't help at all. They had told me to click Wii Options > Data Management > Save Data > Wii > Click the Netflix block, erase it and then go back to the Wii menu, click the Netflix block and sign in and everything goes back to normal but it only lasts that one time and then it dies again. I tried erasing the entire thing tonight and it still didn't work. Frustrating!!

Re: Netflix not working.

I HAVE FINALLY FOUND A SOLUTION!!

try this!!:

1: go to wii settings

2: go to calendar

3

: DOUBLE..NO...TRIPLE CHECK DATE!

4: QUADROUPLE CHECK YOUR TIME!!

mine was an hour behind!! and a few minutes!!

once i fixed it (calculate your 24 hr time!! i almost didnt catch the hour difference!!)

you dont even need to reboot!!

worked instantly!

 

gotta love figuring things out yourself

*bows*

Re: Netflix not working.

Thanks for the advice but did you have to reboot?  (I just did the steps you suggested and I too was one hour and a few minutes off but no change in my service.)

Re: Netflix not working.

I've also been experiencing this problem.  A couple days ago I tried the uninstall/reinstalling fix, but that didn't work.  I may look at doing the calendar thing that was suggested.

 

edit- My wii informed me it was December 25th, 2004.  However, correcting this did nothing for netflix.

Re: Netflix not working.

OK, so this post is two and a half years old, but I am having the problem today so I thought I would reply for what it's worth.

 

As I was completely frustrated and would try anything, I read through the replies to this post and tried them all to still no avail.  This is what I did.

 

I fixed the date and time on my wii though it made no sence to me that it would have anything to do with streaming Netflix.

The wii connect 24 seemed could be a problem, and since that service was recently discontinued, I turned it off.

 

I completely removed all Internet Apps from my wii menu.  Just as a computer gets bogged down with too much useless saved information in cookies I figured the same could be with my Wii.  This made the most common sense to me.  Internet Channel, Hulu, YouTube, Netflix, Amazon, all gone.  Both out of the wii system menu (Data Management) and my divice menu (Wii Settings).

 

I turned off my Wii, turned it back on, went to the shopping channel, still getting connections issues (my connection is excellant) I was finally able to redownload Netflix.  Aggghhh!!!!!!!!!  Still won't connect!!!!!!  I am going to throw something.

 

Think what could it be ......... Think, think, think ......

 

Removed Netflix again, this time I unplugged the Wii, and thought (some more).  What have we changed?  Well, we changed Internet Companies, to a faster service so that shouldn't be it.  We also connected a wireless printer that wasn't connected before.  So I turned that off.

 

Still having trouble connecting to the shopping channel to get Netflix.  We know it's not Netflix now, and something between the Wii and the Router  Sigh .....
