Are you getting a Netflix. Error UI-502?

From our reports it seems that this usually happens on PS3 systems (Sony playstation), but may also happen on others. We also have one report here on the GeekDrop help forums of it happening after they used our Netflix Error AIP-701 hack.

Sometimes it also says:

Netflix Device wrote:

This device has been deactivated. There could be a problem with your account or it could have been deactivated through

(We have found tweaking the Netflix Help Page's steps to our way usually works a bit better.)

Here's our solution for fixing the UI-502 error:

  1. Unplug your devices (any order):

    • (PS3 or whichever streaming device you're getting the UI-502 error on).

    • Router / hub or anything similar.

    • Modem, be it DSL, Cable or whatever.

  2. Let them sit unplugged for about 1 minute or so, to let all the juice out of them, (Pro Tip: pressing any buttons on them may help speed that up a bit.)

  3. Plug them all back in, one at a time, letting them fully go through any power-on routines, in this order:

  4. If for some reason you get the infamous AIP-701 Error, we have the solution here, that has been reported to work very successfully.

Re: Netflix Error UI-502 - [Solution]

Original error ui-502: encountered on Nintendo Wii, reloaded Netflix software and error resolved to error ui-108. Inspected router ip assignments, located multiple devices with duplicate ip's. My router frequently assigns duplicate ip's, a quick router reset resolves this issue. Just be warned if you or your family operates a small network (ex: smartphones, pc's, consoles, or tv's) there is potential of conflicting ip's and your system may be unable to properly notify you of this exact issue. Reset router, and device, all is well.
