The issue is known to Netflix and they have also addressed it on their website. However, there’s not only one reason for this to happen; there are multiple reasons.

  • The Netflix server might be facing some downtime due to which you might see this error.
  • You might be using a proxy or VPN service to bypass the geographical location restrictions.

6 Working Methods to Solve the Netflix M7111-1331-2206 Error

Here we have listed all the tried and tested methods which work in all the cases. Check out the methods in order and find the one that works for you.

#1. Change Your Browser

If you’re using Netflix on your Google Chrome browser and you get the m7111-1331-2206 error, the easiest thing you can do is to change the browser.

In the new browser try to open the Netflix website again and check if the error still prevails.

If the site is working perfectly fine in the new browser, it means that there’s something wrong with Chrome. Chances are some third-party extensions might be conflicting with the browser files (more on this later).

Check if the Google Chrome browser did receive any latest updates or not. If that’s the case, update it to the latest version. To update the browser visit the official Google Chrome website.

#2. Clear Browser Cache

If you are lazy enough to open the new browser and type in the URL, I have a simpler solution for you to get this problem sorted.

Believe it or not, out of the ten errors that we get in the Chrome browser more than eight can directly be solved by clearing the cache files, agreed?

So, why not try the same for this one too?

Oh and before you do that try opening the website in the Incognito mode and if it works there clearing the browser cache will definitely solve the problem.

Here are the exact steps to clear browsing data in the Chrome browser.

Step 1: The first step is to go to the Settings in the top right corner. I know you’re lazy if you’re reading this method so I have a shortcut for you. Type in chrome://settings directly in the address bar of Chrome and hit the Enter button.

Step 6: Once the browser cache is cleared go to the address bar and type in Netflix and see if the issue still prevails. If yes, hop on to the next method.

#3. Disable Netflix 1080p Extension

The Netflix 1080p Extension helps you stream all the movies at 1080p resolution. But chances are it might be the real cause of the problem.

Let me tell you how.

Recently, the latest Netflix update has disabled all the third-party extensions to stream at 1080p resolution from the Chrome browser. If you still try to take into account any such extensions, unfortunately, you’ll see the M7111-1331-2206 error message.

#4. Disable Chrome Extensions

At times the third-party extensions which you install in your Chrome browser start to conflict with the actual files of the browser and this results in various issues. There are high chances that due to this you must be getting the Netflix M7111-1331-2206 error message.

If that is the case, you need to disable all the extensions one by one and in the meantime refresh Netflix and see which one is conflicting with the site. Once you find it, either disable the extension or reinstall it and see if that solves the problem.

#5. Turn of VPN or Proxy

Due to the copyright restrictions, Netflix stops you from watching several TV shows and movies in various geolocations.

To bypass this a lot of users take into account a VPN or a proxy service. Netflix is smart enough to detect this activity and might throw you the error.

To solve this, stop using any external proxy or VPN service and normally try to open up the website. If you try to do so, there are high chances that your error will be resolved for sure.

If not, try out the 2nd method.

#6. Check Netflix Server Status

If you try all the methods listed above and you still don’t find any success, you need to check the server status of Netflix.

Previously, due to the poor server performance, a lot of Netflix users have reported the error message M7111-1331-2206 while trying to access the site.

But the question is how you would know if the servers are down or not?

To make things easy, Netflix has an official link where you can see if the servers are up or not.

Here’s the link to check that out.
