How To Fix Plex Error Code H4?

To check Plex server status you can visit here.

Alternatively, you can also visit the Downdetector to trace any outage with Plex

If there is any outage or scheduled maintenance, then wait for some hours and then try again.

Fix 2: Check Your Internet Connection

In case your internet speed is low or having some issues with connectivity, you may face this challenge.

Open any other app i.e Youtube to check if your device is literally facing an internet issue.

If there is an internet issue then connect to any other WI-Fi or Mobile hotspot to check if Plex is working fine or not.

You can also open your plex on some other device to check if there is any issue with the internet only or if Plex is having problems.

If you find any issue with the internet then restart your router and if the error still persists then contact your ISP.

Restart the Router

  • To restart the router, Power it Off.
  • Unplug all the cables including the Power cable for a few minutes.
  • Plug in back all the cables, in the last plugin power cable, and restart the router.
  • Check if it has fixed the issue or not, meanwhile contact your Internet service provider for help.

Fix 3: Restart The Device

  • Quit from the Plex.
  • Then power off your device.
  • Now, wait for around 5 minutes before powering on the device.
  • Then power on the device, and relaunch the Plex.

Fix 4: Update The Plex Media Server

If all of the above-given methods don’t work for you then you should Update your Plex media server to check.

  • To update the plex media server, open plex, and tap on the three lines given at the top left corner.
  • Now tap on “Settings” and then click on the “Server” option in the settings option.
  • In the server, option tap on Updates and then select the “Check for updates” option to find the available updates.
  • If the “Check for updates” button is grayed out, tap on the “Install updates” button. 
  • Now tap on the “Install” button and if the install button is grayed out then tap on the “Yes” button. 
  • Once updates are installed, tap on the Close button and click on Ok.

Fix 5: Clear The Cache
