Sometimes technology just doesn’t want to cooperate. If you’re currently experiencing any technical issues at Northshore Church online, check out the FAQs below for some basic troubleshooting tips, or feel free to chat with us by clicking the green button in the lower right hand corner.

Q. What should my first response be to any technical issue?

A. Three great first steps to resolve any tech issue are: 1) Refresh the page, 2) Double-check your internet connection and it’s speed, and 3) Try using a different web browser. Nine times out of ten, one of those steps will do the trick!

Q. What does “refreshing” a page mean and how do I do it?

A. To “refresh” a web page simply means to load it again. You can do this by pressing the F5 button on your keyboard or by clicking the refresh symbol at the top of your browser.

Q. How do I check my internet connection speed?

A. To check your internet connection, head over to SpeedTest. After a few seconds, your internet speed should be posted. If your internet download speed is less than 5mbps, you may continually experience streaming issues. We recommend that you call your internet provider to see if they can resolve your slow connection.

Q. How do I download a different web browser?

A. Click these links and follow the accompanying directions to download Chrome, Firefox, or Opera.

Q. What’s a good way to prevent most tech issues from occurring in the first place?

Q. How do I get the video to play if the screen says it’s “unable to connect to the content”?
