Best Solutions to Resolve Crunchyroll ‘Oops Something Went Wrong’ Error on Firestick, Apple TV or Chromecast

If you’ve got the time to stick around, read below for a detailed explanation of how to get rid of that terrible ‘Oops Something Went Wrong’ error on Crunchyroll once and for all.

Empty the Crunchyroll Viewing List

Are you planning on some serious binge-watching? If so, then you’ve probably built up quite a viewing list. As you might be aware, the longer the list, the more it can drag everything down.

Clear the Crunchyroll list and see if that makes everything run smoothly. Yes, you’ll have to put everything back on the list, but at least that awful error message will go away.

Remove Crunchyroll App Cache and Cookies

Get rid of your cache and cookies. No, we’re not saying that you toss your cookies out the window. We’re talking about the cookies on your device.

Clear both your cache and your cookies. If you do both of those things, your system will run smoothly, and everything may be back in working order again.

Ensure Stable Internet Connectivity

It’s important to note that we’re not only talking about checking to make sure your internet connection is working. We’re also talking about making sure that your internet connection is stable.

If your Wi-Fi has a mind of its own, you’re probably going to want to look into that or skip it entirely and plug it right in using your ethernet cable.

Upgrade the Crunchyroll App to its Latest Software Version

The only time people update their apps is when something goes wrong. Are you one of those people? If so, now is the time to update. You should be updating your apps anyway, but now that there’s a problem, ensure everything is up to date.

Turn Off Browser Add-Ons or Extension

Are you one of those people who adds every extension possible to your browser? If you are, you need to know that some of those add-ons don’t play nicely with each other. Sure, it’s good to have one or two plugins, but something is bound to happen if you have dozens.

Turn off all of your add-ons and see if that helps. If it does, you might want to consider testing the add-ons individually to see which is causing the problem.

Disable your Antivirus Software

What? Are you serious? How can you turn off your antivirus software when the internet is full of bad stuff? Calm down, and have a donut; we’re not talking about turning it off completely.

Stop everything that you’re done and turn it off while you’re watching Crunchyroll. After you’re done getting your fix of sweet anime, turn your antivirus back on so you’re fully protected.

Sign Out and In Again on Crunchyroll

Signing in and out might sound like a no-brainer, but it’s actually pretty important. Sometimes the easiest solutions are the ones that no one thinks of. A quick sign-out and hopping back in may fix that error message once and for all.

Do you still have that dreaded ‘Oops Something Went Wrong’ staring back at you? If not, thank your lucky stars. See, fixing it wasn’t so hard. Go get yourself a snack and enjoy some anime like you’ve wanted to before that error code ruined your life.
