Disney+ has launched this week and many people are struggling with some issues, including getting “error codes”.

The official Disney+ help page goes into more depth but here is a rough guide to these error codes and how to fix them.

Error Code 4

This means Disney are having issues trying to complete your transaction. Try again after a short period.


Here are some potential causes and solutions:

  • Invalid ZIP or postal code. Verify that the billing ZIP or postal code for the payment card you are using is correct.
  • Invalid security code. Verify that the 3-digit security code on the back of your card (or 4 if you have an American Express) matches the one you’re submitting.
  • Invalid expiration date. Verify that the expiration date on your card matches the one you’re submitting.
  • Not a U.S.-issued card. We require a credit or debit card issued by a U.S.-based bank or financial institution.
  • Government-issued card. Government-issued cards are not accepted at this time. Try using an accepted form of payment.

Error Code 5

This means we could not update your account information because there is something wrong with the data you have entered. Please check what you have entered and try again.

Error Code 7

This means we are having difficulty creating your account due to information you have entered. This could be an invalid email address, or your password doesn’t meet Disney’s password criteria.


Error Code 8

This means you have entered an invalid email or password. If you have forgotten your account email, please check your email folder for your account confirmation email at the time of sign-up.

Error Code 9

This means that you have been logged out of Disney+, and you will need to log in again to continue to use the service.   It can also mean the payment information that you have entered cannot be processed. Please check the information and try again.

If you are not using a VPN and Disney+ is available in your location, there could be an issue with your Internet service provider, which might be reporting an incorrect location. To verify this, you may want to test on another connection, if available.

Error Code 75

This means you have reached your device limit for streaming Disney+, which is 4 concurrent devices. You will need to stop streaming on another device if you want to stream on your current device.

Error Code 76

This means that your current connection speed is too slow to stream Disney+. This could be caused by a number of issues

Error Code 81

This means there was an issue trying to reset your password. You will need to restart the password reset process, which you can do here.

Error Code 83

This means we experienced an unknown error streaming to your device. This is typically a device compatibility issue, connection error, or account issue.

  • To review which devices, platforms, and operating systems are compatible with Disney+, please see this article
  • To learn more about troubleshooting the most common connectivity issues, please see this article
  • If you have verified that both device compatibility and connectivity are fine, this means there is likely an account issue. In this case, Disney recommend you contact Disney+ Customer Service

Error Code 86

This means that your account has been blocked for one of the following reasons:

The main account holder email is associated with someone under the age of 18
The account has been banned due to inappropriate usage, or a violation of our terms of service

      Error 43 code means Disney wants you jumping around online thinking that an error code 43 exists... turns out its just to waste your time while they figure out how to develop a better functioning app.

    I just signed up for Disney + and installed the app on my EU Samsung tv from 2016. It works perfect on the iPad but the tv just return error 1016 APP_CONFIG_FAILURE. I have tried reinstalling the app, but it gives the same error. The region on the tv is set to us

    1. Roger Palmer February 2, 2020

      It might not be compatible with your TV. Or because Disney+ isn't out in Europe yet, the device isn't supported yet

  23. Cheryl May 31, 2020

    Disney+ required an update to the app and now all I'm getting is error code 1028. Nothing changes it.
