YouTube giving an error 'please check your network connection'

Hi I just connected my Sony TV to the Internet three days ago. YouTube was working fine the first day. And now it is not working. It keeps giving me the error message 'please check your network connection' everytime I try to get on that app. I checked my Internet connection, I am able to get on Netflix without any problems. I also switched off everything unplugged and replugged the wires, and still unable to get in YouTube app on TV.

By the way, YouTube works fine on the other laptops and phones.

I did do photo plus sharing from my phone to TV end of the first day. Could that have to do with any of this error?

I'm posting for the first time, don't know how this site works, I hope I get notified.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi,

Try clearing the cache for the You Tube app in the TV. Not sure how it appears but if it is based on Android, go to apps main menu > settings > applications > select either downloaded or all, scroll down to You Tube, click to enter. Select Clear Cache and then try it. If it doesn't work try Clear Data, which should be located there as well.

Hi,

If you are not having any other problems with your internet connection other than when you use your You Tube app then unfortunately, the only way to resolve it is to either uninstall/reinstall the app or try clearing the app's cache. Either way it will result in all the settings and info for that app being deleted. If the cache is corrupted it has to be deleted so that fresh information can be stored there. Again it is only information pertaining to that app that will be deleted, so verify that you know all the relevant personalized You Tube settings info etc before you clear the cache and delete them so it is easier to re-enter them afterwards

I foresee this as a major problem that will damage these tvs I think that the software should be updated to automatically clear the cache upon turning off the set so that you start in default mode when you want to watch TV again and not be in a network loop this will perhaps break your tv set it is the same principle of computing the longer one ignores problems upon startups the likely hood of a total system error crash is to occur

I cleared cache and data AND went to change the date and time of the TV. Oddly it was set at network time which was in 2016. Changed to current date and it worked!

Another tip. Hold down the POWER button on the remote and the TV will do a hard reboot (not to be confused with reset).

This is completely different than a Sony TV.

for iOS Tap and hold the Yahoo icon until all the apps start shaking with an "x" in the corner. Tap the "x" to uninstall the youtube app. Now redownload it from the app store.
