The most common playback devices for the Crunchyroll app are:

- Games Consoles such as PlayStation and XBOX
- A PC or MacBook Laptop
The universal recommendation for these devices and the first step in trying to eliminate the Crunchyroll not loading issues is to perform a power cycle of these systems.
To perform a power cycle of the devices, unplug them for 60 seconds before plugging them back in.

Method 4: Reset your Router
This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it is effective in getting the Crunchyroll app to load.
How do I reset my router?
The easiest way to reset your router is to unplug it from the wall socket for 30 seconds before plugging it back in.
This action will “power-cycle” your router and provide more bandwidth to increase your ability to play content faster on the Crunchyroll app.
Why does resetting your router reduce the Crunchyroll not loading issues?
Think of all the devices that are and have been connected to the router. I’m sure that in today’s digital world quite a few devices are connected to the router.
Your router is like a mini-PC and will slow down as more tasks are added.
Having all of those devices connected will reduce the bandwidth available and can prevent you from connecting to the Crunchyroll network if a network conflict is apparent.
Method 6: Update your Crunchyroll app
If you are playing Crunchyroll using a device such as a Firestick, Roku or smart TV, then I recommend that you update the app if possible.
If you have an LG Smart TV, there are ways to access the HBO Max app.
Method 7: Close any apps that are running
If you have followed our first step of restarting your playback device, then this step would have been completed. Otherwise, please continue to close any running apps.
How does having open apps cause the Crunchyroll app not to load?

Those blockages impede your ability and can cause software conflict that prevents the Crunchyroll app from loading.
Method 8: Update your device software/firmware before downloading
Whether you are using a TV, Content Device, or Games console, updating your firmware or software to the latest version can help prevent issues from arising over time.
Sometimes updates can be missed, or an installation can be interrupted and cause issues with your playback device.
Old firmware or a partial installation could cause the Crunchyroll not loading issues.
Ensuring you have the latest software on your devices gives you access to new apps and an improved viewing experience.
Method 9: Disable any Ad blockers or VPNs
VPNs and Ad blockers can negatively affect your ability to connect to the Crunchyroll network and cause Crunchyroll not loading issues.
Your connection to a VPN will always limit the speed at which you can play content.
We understand that using a VPN can be a sensible choice, mainly due to privacy concerns.
Unfortunately, by using a VPN, you are creating another dependency that can cause Crunchyroll not to load correctly.
