How to Fix Error 8001 on JioCinema

Recently during the Women’s Premier League, many Jiocinema app users suddenly saw this error –

Error Code: 8001, Reason: ERROR_CODE_IO_UNSPECIFIED, Cause:$PlaylistStuckException

This is the solution provided by the Jiocinema Support team –

That means you simply need to uninstall and reinstall the Jiocinema app on your Smartphone or Android Smart TV to fix this error.

However, according to me, this was due to the high load on the server since many users were seeing the “Webpage not available” error at the bottom of the screen. This issue was later fixed automatically after the server came back online.

Contact Customer Support Of Jio

If none of the previously mentioned solutions work for you, the last resort is to reach out for assistance through official email or social media channels. You can share the issue along with a screenshot or video and request a repair. They have solutions for all JioCinema App 8001 errors on Smart TV, ensuring resolution for all the issues.

Customers often encounter more significant problems like “Jio Cinema App Not Loading,” “Jio Cinema Not Showing IPL,” “Jio Cinema App Stuck on Loading,” “Jio Cinema Showing IPL in Low-Quality Problem,” and “Jio Cinema App Login Problems.” It’s quite likely that JioCinema has solutions for these issues as well.

Unable to Live Stream in 4K Quality

Jiocinema is offering free live streaming at 4K quality during IPL matches. However, some people are unable to use this feature.

According to Jiocinema, you need to first make sure that your Android Smart TV actually supports 4K viewing. In India, households usually have 1080p support TVs. 4K TVs are a little bit on the mid to high-end range smart televisions. Although Jiocinema devs are trying hard to provide a 4 K-like experience to normal devices.

If your TV does in fact have 4K streaming support then you need to uninstall the app and download the latest version from the Google Play Store app.

Something Went Wrong 8004 Error Fix

This error is also a server-related issue that comes when a high amount of people are watching the match at a time.

Something went wrong error solution

Oops. Something went wrong. Click to refresh.


To fix this issue, the app suggests to “Click to Refresh” option. But this will just recheck whether the server is back online or not. All you can do is wait for them to upscale their servers.
