When using a Chromium-based browser to watch Netflix, users may get the Error Code M7053-1803. This includes Google Chrome, Vivaldi, and Opera. This issue has been replicated on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10, indicating that it is not OS-specific.

Method 1: Power Down Your Device And Let it Reboot.

To clear the temporary cache, you need restart your computer and wait for the next startup to finish before attempting any of the other solutions. Do so, and once the next startup is finished, check if the problem is fixed.

Error Code: M7053-1803

Restarting the computer forces the operating system to delete temporary files from the previous session of surfing, which could solve the problem.

If you’ve previously tried that without success, continue on for a possible alternative solution.

Method 2: Erasing Browsing History in Chromium

If clearing the cache in your browser did not solve the problem, try deleting it. Some users have noted that Netflix-related cookies or temporary files may be at fault if they cause problems when trying to stream videos.

If this sounds like your situation, deleting the cache in your Chromium browser should fix the problem.

Given that every browser that could potentially run across this error number is based on Chrome, deleting the cache left behind by Netflix should be quite straightforward.

If you have previously done this and are still receiving Error Code M7053-1803, continue on to the next solution.

Method 3: We’re Going to Delete the Indexed Database

If none of the preceding solutions have helped, erasing the Indexed Database (IndexedDB) from your Chromium-based browser is the next logical step. The World Wide Web Consortium has created and maintains this standard.

If you delete IndexedDB, you get rid of a lot of temporary files that could be causing the M7053-1803 error.

If this is your situation, Chrome’s Indexed Database can be removed as follows:

Step 1: To reach the Settings menu on a Chromium-based browser, open the browser, copy and paste the following address into the address bar, and then press Enter.

chrome://settings

Step 2: To access the secret options for your Chromium-based browser, open the Settings menuĀ  and then scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click on Advanced.

Step 3: Finally, select Cookies and other site data from the Privacy and security submenu.

Step 4: Once you enter the menu for Cookies and other data, go to the bottom of the list of options and select See all cookies and site data.

Step 5: The next step is to look for “netflix” using the search bar.

Step 6: Then, select Local Storage from the drop-down option that appears after clicking the Netflix result that appears in the search results.

Step 7: Then, in the upper right, select the trashcan icon. The next step is to verify the action and wait for it to finish.

Step 8: If you’re using a Chromium-based browser, try restarting it to see if that helps.

If you’re still experiencing issues with Error Code M7053-1803 after trying the preceding steps, continue on to the next possible solution.

Method 4: You Can Try Resetting Chrome’s Preferences.

If none of the solutions here help, try reinstalling Chrome entirely. This action will reset your browser to its factory settings, erasing all of your personal preferences, extensions, and other add-ons, but it will also remove the great majority of the inconsistent files and corrupted data that could be causing this problem.

Several users who saw the M7053-1803 problem code in Netflix have stated that this procedure was the only thing that allowed them to permanently resolve the issue and resume normal streaming.

To help you reset your Chromium-based browser’s settings, we’ve prepared this detailed tutorial.

  1. Access your web browser and hit the “Take Action” button in the upper right corner of the screen. Then, select Settings from the subsequent menu.
  2. Within the Settings menu, Advanced can be accessed by scrolling to the very bottom of the screen and clicking on it.
  3. After bringing up the hidden advanced settings, you may quickly revert to the factory defaults by selecting the Restore settings option (under Reset and Cleanup).
  4. Having confirmed the action, you must now wait for it to finish. Now, try restarting your Chromium-based browser to see if it helps.
