How to Clear Error code E16 on GOTV

Error E16 is one of the most common GOTV and DSTV errors, and it usually occurs when your subscription expires. If you have an active subscription and you still receive this error, then your decoder may have been switched off while you made the payment, resulting in a delay in the subscription activation. Hence, the error E16. So to clear the E16 error code on your GOTV or DSTV, simply text “RESET IUC NUMBER” to 4688, i.e. RESET (your GOTV IUC number) to 4688.

Your IUC number is the number on the red or white sticker under your cable box or decoder.
