I had some connectivity issues recently, but only late into the night. Perhaps it's a scheduled maintenance?

Re: unable to connect to netflix please try again or visit www.netflix.com/tvhelp

Feb 3, 2012

I am having the same issue I have completely deleted the app and reinstalled it and yet still it has the message Unable to connect to Netflix. Please try again or visit:  www.netflix.com/tvhelp. If anyone knows why I can't seem to connect please shed some light on the situation.

Much Appreciated-

Your Friendly Neighborhood,

Prior to what I have just posted I did some site digging and came across two solutions that provided me alternate solutions to my problem. Granted I didn't have any success myself maybe other PSN users might have luck. All you have to do is follow the instructions below and you should be good as gold.       

-How do I troubleshoot my connection to Netflix on the PlayStation 3 system?-

If you are experiencing problems connecting to Netflix on your PlayStation®3 system, try these troubleshooting options.

Verify Internet connection

The PlayStation 3 must be connected to the Internet to connect to Netflix. Click here if you need help troubleshooting a wireless connection. Click here if you need help troubleshooting a wired connection

Unable to connect to Netflix Message

ImageIf you receive a "We're unable to connect you to Netflix. Please try again later" message when using Netflix on the PS3, you may need to manually update your system clock.

This is the step if you have Netflix already installed if it doesn't work proceed to second step.

Manually updating the PS3 Date and Time settings

  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to  Image(Settings) > Image (Date and Time Settings) >
  2. Select Set Manually
  3. Enter the current date and time, and press the Imagebutton to confirm
  4. Launch Netflix

This is the step after editing the Date and Time Settings if Netflix is already installed on your system.

Deleting and reinstalling the Netflix application

If you've manually set the system clock and you're still unable to connect to Netflix, try deleting and reinstalling the Netflix application. In order to fully remove Netflix, you must delete application and the saved data.  Follow the step below to learn how to do this.

  1. From the XMB home menu, go to Image(TV/Video Services).
  2. Navigate to the Netflix icon, press the Image button, select Delete and press the Image button
  3. Next, go to (Game), scroll up to the Game Data Utility icon, press the Image button.
  4. Once again, navigate to the Netflix icon, press the Image button, select Delete and press the Image button
  5. Retun back to Image(TV/Video Services), the Netflix icon will still be visible. Select the Netflix icon and press the Image button to reinstall the application
  6. Launch Netflix

Try again later

Sometimes, simply waiting a few minutes and then starting the Netflix app will resolve the connection issue.

Contact Netflix

If you've tried all of the above steps and still have problems connecting to Netflix, you can contact Netflix support at 1-866-716-0414.

Re: unable to connect to netflix please try again or visit www.netflix.com/tvhelp

This is a Troubleshoot guide giving you options to also get your Netflix up and running read carefully.                            

Troubleshoot a wireless (Wi-Fi) network connection on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system

Answer ID: 280

If you are experiencing problems with a wireless (Wi-Fi) network connection on the PlayStation 3, try these troubleshooting options:

  •   Disable Media Server Connection 

    This feature allows the PlayStation 3 to connect to DLNA Media Servers on the same wireless network. However, if this setting is enabled, it may interfere with Internet Connectivity.
     
      To disable the Media Server Connection:

    1. In the XMB™ home menu, go to Settings icon (Settings) >
    2. Select and press the X button icon button.
    3. Highlight and press the X button icon button.
  •   Check Your Network Equipment 

    Make sure your network router supports Wi-Fi connections.  If the router does not support Wi-Fi, you will need to use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) that supports 802.11b or 802.11g wireless protocols.  If you have a Wireless Access Point that is 802.11n, you will need to make sure you set it so that it is in mixed mode (accepts 802.11b or 802.11g signals).

    If you do not know how to operate or access your network equipment settings, (such as your DSL or Cable router settings), you will need to contact the manufacturer of the equipment directly. Click here for contact information for some common router manufacturers. If you are leasing the equipment from the ISP, please call your ISP for more details.

    Also, note that all models of the PS3 system support Wi-fi except the 20GB (model# CECHB01) system.

  •   Intermittent Internet Connection 

    If you are able to connect to the Internet with the PlayStation®3 system, but your Internet connection will disconnect after a few minutes and your Internet connection:

    • Requires a user ID and password
    • Your user ID/password is entered into your home gateway router or Broadband modem
      then your router/modem may be causing the disconnection. 

    Go in to your router/modem settings to ensure that it is set to keep the connection active ("Keep Alive" mode), and is NOT set to "Connect on Demand".

    Check with your ISP or router/modem manufacturer if you do not know how to set the router/modem to "Keep Alive" mode.

  •   USB Equipment  

    Check if there is a USB cord connected to the modem.  If there is, unplug this cord and make sure an Ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the wireless access point (router) then power cycle the modem and router to refresh the settings.

    Also the PlayStation 3 is unable to connect to the Internet through the USB port, it must be connected via an Ethernet cord or via Wi-Fi network. You will not be able to use a USB adaptor or a cell phone USB adaptor with the PlayStation 3.
      The 40GB, 60GB, 80GB, and 160GB models of the PlayStation 3 support 802.11b or 802.11g wireless standards.

  •   Power-Cycle ALL Network Devices 

    Turn off (unplug) ALL of your network devices and equipment making sure all lights on the modems has turned off, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. Certain VOIP modems (where your telephone is connected to your modem) may have a battery installed. You will need to remove the battery in order for the modem to be completely turned off.

  •   Restore Default Settings 

    It may be necessary to restore all of the PS3 system settings back to the original "default" configuration.

    Click here to learn how to restore default settings.

  •   Confirm SSID 

    Verify the Service Set Identifier (SSID) of your wireless network. Since scanning for SSIDs with your PlayStation 3 can pick up other wireless networks, make sure you have selected the correct SSID which belongs to your own wireless network. It is also possible that your WAP has the SSID broadcasting feature turned "Off", which means your PlayStation 3 will not pick up the SSID when scanning for available wireless networks. You will need to either turn "On" the SSID broadcast feature on your WAP, or speak to the administrator of your network to obtain your SSID. See about SSID for more information.

  •   Confirm WEP or WPA Security Key 

    If your wireless network access is security-enabled (encrypted) from open access, you will need your WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security key or password. If you do not know this information, speak to the person who configured your home network settings. Click here to learn about WEP and WPA security.

  •   Confirm if Your Wireless Access Point Requires a MAC Address 

    If your WAP is configured to "filter" Media Access Control addresses (MAC address), you will need to enter the PlayStation 3's MAC address into the WAP's MAC filter table as an allowed device. Click here to find the MAC address of the PlayStation 3.

  •   If You Can't Connect to SCEA Game Servers or Network 

    If you can access the Internet but not our game servers or network, it may be a firewall issue (see firewall port numbers firewall port numbers for more information).

  •   Confirm Your Home Network Connection 

    Confirm that you are able to connect to the Internet from your location using your home computer, on the same network.  If you cannot connect to the Internet, you may need to contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for additional assistance on your account/connection.

    DSL

      Cable 
  •   Confirm Your ISP Account and Equipment Settings 

    Whether you are a new or an existing customer with your ISP, if you need your ISP account settings (such as a username and password for DSL customers), you will need to speak directly with your ISP. If you do not know how to operate or access your network equipment settings, (such as your DSL or Cable router settings), you will need to contact the manufacturer of the equipment directly. If you are leasing the equipment from the ISP, please call your ISP for more details. Click here for a walkthrough on configuring your network settings.
      Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) does not have access to your ISP account settings.

  •   Verify Online Capability of Software Title 
    • If you are trying to go online with a game, make sure the PlayStation®3 or PlayStation®2 format software is capable of online game play.  You can find this information printed on the packaging.
    • If you cannot connect to the game servers, you may need to open firewall ports.
    • Additionally, follow the guidelines for playing PlayStation 2 format software online with the PlayStation 3.
  •   Clear Any Interference or Obstacles in Order to Strengthen Your Wi-Fi Signal 

    Try positioning the PlayStation 3 closer to the wireless router or WAP to enhance the wireless signal. Also, verify that you do not have any devices which may interfere with a wireless signal. If any such devices are in close proximity, make sure they are shut off to ensure no such interference is present. Such devices include:

    • Microwave oven
    • Florescent lighting
    • Bluetooth® wireless devices
    • 2.4 gigahertz cordless phones
    • High powered audio equipment
    • Television sets or computer monitors
    • Electronic insect "zappers"
    • Any other electronic equipment that may produce Radio Frequency (RF) interference
  •   AOSS (Airstation One-Touch Secure System) 

    If you are using a Wireless Access Point that is equipped with AOSS (Airstation One-Touch Secure System) technology, you may wish to contact the manufacturer of your Wireless Access Point for additional assistance configuring the AOSS enabled WAP.

  •   Update Your Network Equipment's Firmware/Drivers 

    If appropriate, update the router or modem's firmware or driver. Contact the device manufacturer for details.

  •   Bypass the Wireless Component to Isolate the Problem 

    Try connecting the PlayStation 3 directly to your cable/DSL modem using an Ethernet cable or try connecting to a different wireless network (if possible). This step will help isolate the issue solely to the wireless connection.
