Resetting Netlfix on the Panasonic Viera Smart tv didn’t really go as planned. However, I did resolve my issues. Netflix wouldn’t load at first. I tried to remove the channel (they call them apps) and I guess you can’t actually do that. I also tried the netflix cheat code to get into the settings menu. No luck.
What did work was changing my DNS entries for the TV. Why that? Who knows. I certainly don’t know. Everything else on the TV worked including youtube and amazon video. I changed the DNS to default instead of my standard Google DNS of 188.8.131.52.
This is a 2012 smart tv. I hate smart tvs. Not just hate but I could go to bed thinking of ways to smash them. They never get updated. The UI is never user-friendly and when things go wrong you can’t do much about it. Give me a roku or googlecast any day of the week!
