IFE-1002 and IFE-1003 Errors when trying to use app for the first time

Hamburgler03 Posts: 3 Spectator

I have seen other mentions of these errors but no resolution to them so apologies for asking.

Previously I had downloaded the Spectrum TV app and had same errors so deleted it. But re-downloaded and getting the immediate errors to 1) Turn off VPN and then after I've done that the "Turn off Proxy Server and turn app back on."

Any help on solving for these or to even know how/where to turn off proxy server?

    Hi & welcome!

    "IFE-XXXX" errors typically reference an issue the app is having connecting to the internet. There was a previous issue a while back where this error was impacting some iOS devices. This issue has been resolved.

    We suggest reinstalling the app and attempting to launch again. If you are still seeing an issue, reply back with the device you are using and any specific error code.

    Thanks for the reply. I deleted the app and then rebooted my phone and re-installed the app and getting the same error(s).

    I do have a Norton VPN (turned off for this) but getting the "Please turn off the proxy server and then restart the app - Reference Code: IFE-1003." error.

    details for my phone:

    iPhone 13 Pro

    iOS 16.1

    When was the last time you launched the app? I was able to locate your account using your registration information and I am not seeing the app in use recently. If it continues, do have a different device you can try? Since we are not seeing a device log in,. you may also want to double check the login credentials you are using.

    Weirdly it worked on another phone but not my main one. On the main phone, I have tried to use the app in the past half hour.

    Please try the following steps and test the app between each on.

    Uninstall Nord VPN. It should be simple to reinstall later but given the error you are getting I think this is the mostly likely cause,.

    Look for other apps that may be impacting the connection, such as security apps, and uninstall those.

    Forget your wireless network and reconnect to it.

    Reset your devices network settings. Depending on your mobile provider you may need to contact them to reconfigure the settings. For many including Spectrum Mobile this should not cause an issue,

    Reset your device to factory settings. This will erase all data from your phone and will need to be set up as if it were new.
