Most annoying thing ever?

With Netflix loaded you use the up/down/left/right arrows on the remote and press:

  • Β up
  • up
  • down
  • down
  • left
  • right
  • left
  • right
  • up
  • up
  • up
  • up
  • up

Which should bring you to a screen that says deactivate. Click deactivate then yes and it logs you out… I kid you not.

  1. This code reminds me of Contra to get all the weapons.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    • Thank you!!! How utterly ludicrous.. Thank god it works. 😊 πŸ’œ

    • This is nuts, and I didn’t think it was going to work, but it really did. Thanks!!! We were literally about to give up. Let movie night, begin!

  2. THANK YOU for this helpful info. It seemed like such a joke but worked like a charm. Let the movies begin again πŸ™‚

  3. Panic stations a friend signed in to his sons netflix on his LG tv, tried everything to log out, no way, anyway I Googled as usual found this and read it out to him, he thought it was a joke but tried anyway, so THANKS for the heads up IT WORKED.

  4. Just to let you know, this code still works. Thanks a million.
    LOL: Reminds me of my old Nintendo days using codes to get unlimited free guys.

  5. k I’m late to the game but THANK U is someone at Netflix fucking with us? wish I had found this months ago! this is why I am not paying for Netflix -_-

  6. I thought this was a joke when I saw it but it actually worked
    Thanks

  7. OMG!!! I honestly didn’t think that would work but IT DID!!!! THANKYOU!!

  8. Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!! You are so smart and it worked. THANK YOU A MILLION FOR POSTING THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

  9. You’re brilliant. Thanks for posting this. Never in a million years would I have figured that one out!!!
    So ridiculous.
    Much appreciated.

  10. Oh my good god!!! Driving me totally crazy and I just googled and this came up. Cannot believe it worked!!!!! My head is so battered from trying for 3 days previous.

  11. Holy. SHIT. For a second there I was thinking you were pulling my leg but… it worked. Why…? Why wouldn’t they just add a button??

  12. Cant believe this actually worked. Thank you, safely logged out of netflix on the LG TV!

  13. I don’t know whey LG went with HP WebOS? Android is always free. Bad choice I must say. Anyways Thanks a zillion for this instructions. Now I can die happy.

    • It’s no longer HP’s WebOS, and has not been for 3-4 years now. LG bought the software years ago and it is now their own proprietary operating system. Don’t take my word for it…

      …And yes, what a terribly frustrating experience for logging out of an app! My inner Nintendo Konami kid grinned when I saw this. So random.

  14. Wow… I know there’s tons of comments saying it works, but I legit thought they were spam.
    It’s annoying that there’s no other way to reset your Netflix on your LG, but hey, Koodos to you for sharing this with us.
    Thanks!

  15. it works, thanks, but I can’t switch user, log in and came back to the same user from las time, too sad

  16. It works but when I log back in it doesn’t let me choose a profile and goes straight to the main one :/

    • Wow!!! With baggy eyes staying up till wee hours of the morning trying to sign in with a different account, this worked!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  17. You are a HERO man. You have no idea how frustrated I was. This is 100% legit… worked perfect! Thank you!

  18. This is legit!! I thought it was a joke but it was worth a try! Worked.

  19. It worked!! You are awesome for posting this! When I first read it, I thought it was a joke, but nope- LG really did set it up like that :/. Very funny title and great content how you bullet pointed the steps.

  20. Thank you so much! First, holy crap I cannot believe that worked. It took me about 5 tries (don’t give up after the first few!) Second, I noticed I had to input the buttons quite fast. I recommend going over the sequence a few times and giving it a shot, and there are 5 up pushes at the end. After the fifth it took a second but the deactivate screen appeared! Hooray!! Thanks again!

  21. Woohoo it worked, you have to try it a few times but it works.

  22. I thought this was stupid but it actually worked, it took me a few tries but I got it. It might not work for everybody but it’s worth the try. thanks for the help.

  23. Doesn’t work and damn netflix can’t get their crap together. Been on phone for 2.5 hrs and they trying to tell me it is my “too old” tv that is 5 months old!

  24. Holy cow!?!?!

    It worked do it fast and it works!!!

    So happy πŸ˜‹

  25. Thank you, and you are right, most annoying thing ever πŸ™‚

  26. Dude this is wild. Reminds me of the old code for Contra on Nintendo for 100 lives back in the day.

    Thanks

  27. Brilliant I can’t believe it actually works what a pain I’ve been trying all week!!! Thank you!!

  28. How can I exit one account and use another? I have the wife myself and the kids and all it seems to do is give me the wife? On the PC and the laptop I have the choices but not on the LG smart. Can anyone help with this.???

  29. Now all i have to do is figure out how to switch btwn profiles. Tired of havin to watch the kid shows on mine.

  30. It worked! Now if I press deactivate will it delete or turn off that Netflix account?

      • But will it keep the account and let me go back on to it or is it gone forever?

      • But also can I log back on? And if it is the same email for the Netflix profiles then will it work if I log back on into that same email or will it say the chosen profile again?

  31. Home> setting>option> smart tv setting> reset> Netflix deactivation

  32. I did this and it worked but how do I switch the profile for the person watching?

  33. Tought it was a Konami code but amazingly it worked. Thanks a lot.

  34. I thought is sounded like a joke but it worked. I felt dumb doing it and the first time clicked rather slowly, it didn’t work. My husband said click way faster and bam, it worked! You’re a genius! And LG seriously could’ve made it a little more user friendly.

  35. Didn’t work… Rrrr! Tried many times and no no no. AHHHHHH! !!!! LOL!

  36. I couldn’t believe it but it really worked. Just tried it

  37. Ok, really…. Will the account still be active to sign into at another time or another device? I’m using my friends account and I DO NOT want to lose her stuff by doing this:(

  38. Unbelievable! Worked also with an LG HDD tuner. Life’s good.

  39. OMG! haha. It really works, I thought I had tried everything.

  40. If i hit the deactive button will i loose the account forever? Can i still use it on my other devices?

  41. it really works!!!!! that such a stupid way to log out of anything!! thanks though!

  42. up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, up, up, up, up, up.

    Last up should be five times to get deactivation screen.
