One popular way to resolve this issue is to either unplug your router, or FireStick, or both. A quick unplugging of both the router and FireStick TV, waiting for a couple of minutes, and then reconnecting both again, can resolve the issue effectively.

It is best to first unplug and reconnect your router and then follow the same steps with your FireStick TV. This can help with any internet reconfiguration or weak connection issues.

Try to access the apps now, if the same error message pops up then move on and try the next method.

2. Deregister your Amazon Account

If unplugging doesn’t help, try deregistering your account. The deregistering can allow removal of content from your device, there might be a reason that the content present on your FireStick TV is making the error message appear.
