How to deactivate Netflix account on Open-Box blu-ray player

by beverlyporter / January 9, 2010 1:22 PM PST

The Samsung BD-1600 I bount was an open box item and has a Netflix account already activated on it, but is not mine. How do I deactivate the account that was previously set up to get an activation code to enter on my account? I would so appreciate removing the instant Queue with all the horror movies and be able to see my selections.

There's supposed to be a factory reset button on it somewhere, probably recessed, that you'll need a paperclip to get to. Can't speak from experience, but that should do it.

Obviously, don't go probing in every hole looking for the button with the power on!

Go to the Netflix screen which lists all the queued up movies. Press the info button on the BD-P1600's remote. That'll take you to a screen where you can deactivate the machine. After you deactivate, the next time you choose Netflix, it'll rerun setup for you if you so choose.

Who would have thought to push the Info button?

Thank you so much for informing me about the info button. Maybe Samsung or Netflix should include that tidbit of information in their manuals or website.

Sorry, I didn't know where else to post this, but I noticed there were similar answers to other products but none for Panasonic.

I've documented how to deactivate Netflix for a Panasoinc DMB-DB65

Hope this helps

THANK YOU so very much for putting this on here! It seems like such a simple thing but for the life of me, I could not figure out how to deactivate one account and activate another. Neither Samsung nor Netflix makes this easy to figure out. thank you thank you thank you.

Thank you so much for posting this information. I was finally able to deactivate an old netflix account after trying so many other things including the netflix deactivation sequence, which didn't work at all.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
