If you're having trouble connecting to one or a few of your apps like Amazon Prime Video but not all of the apps on your Smart TV/streaming device, here are some possibilities and steps to follow:
1) I know it sounds quite simple here, but I recommend this as a first step always. Have you tried unplugging it here for 10 minutes or so? Unplugging the TV for 10-15 minutes can initiate a 'power cycle' which can often fix these type of issues with a TV. Be sure to press & hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote) for 10 full seconds while the set is unplugged, then release the power button. During that time I would double check all the cable connections for devices connected to your TV, unplug those connections and plug them all back in securely. Also unplug all devices from power while you have the TV unplugged. Then plug everything back in and try to navigate again.
2) If this doesn't work, power the TV off and unplug the WIFI router for 3 minutes, then plug it back in for 3 minutes from the power supply, and turn the TV back on to try again.
3) If #1 & #2 don't work, try signing out of your account of the app that's giving you issues, then try signing back in.
4) If all else fails, if your TV/device allows you to download apps, try deleting the app that's giving you issues and then re-download it and try all over again.
5) Try updating the firmware of the Smart TV or streaming device.
