What if the Crackle activation code doesn’t show?

If Crackle doesn’t show an activation code, it could be due to any of these reasons:

You haven’t logged in to your Crackle account

You can easily navigate this problem by logging into your account using the same details you used while signing up.

If you haven’t signed up, make sure to do so before you begin the activation process. Remember that you cannot sign up or activate if you are outside the United States or Canada.

Your TV is in dark mode

Have you lowered your TV resolution or switched to Dark Mode in recent times? Well, your activation code could be displayed in a darker color, which makes it impossible for you to view the code.

Switch from Dark Mode or improve your TV or Monitor’s brightness in order to view the code.

When using Apple TV, go to Settings > Audio/Video > TV Resolution, and select “Auto“. If this doesn’t work, proceed to the next step.

You are using an outdated HDMI cable

Using an older HDMI cable can cause the code to not display. When using a media streaming device, unplug your HDMI cable for about 30 seconds then plug it back in.

If the code doesn’t display, change the cable and retry. To avoid this problem, get a modern cable such as the PowerBear 4K HDMI cable.
