Browser Issues / Blank Screen when Logging in

Are you seeing a blank screen after logging into Uscreen? If so, this is a problem with your browser version.

The solution is to update the web browser to the last version available. Clearing the web browser cache and deleting the cookies is recommended too.

If you're seeing black screen on a tv browser, you can see if your Smart TV browser has updates available. If you don't know how to check this, we recommend you perform a web search to find out this information. However, we do not support TV browsers. We recommend that you use a casting device, such as AirPlay or Chromecast.
