Cartoons8 Kodi addon went down a few months ago as its host repository was shut down but just recently received an update and is working again.

However, protecting your identity while using a Kodi add-on is very important, which is why I recommend you to use a VPN supported by Kodi.

Cartoons8 Anime Kodi Not Working/Errors/Down

Check Log Error

Check log error is seen usually amongst these third-party add-ons due to the missing files in their repository or sometimes due to the bulged up cache.


To fix this error, first check whether the repository you are using is updated or not. If it is updated and functional then try clearing Kodi cache.

Could Not Connect to the Repository

This is a very rare type of error and does not appear very often. The main reason behind this error is trying to use an obsolete repository or a source URL that is no longer working.


Always try to check the source URL if it is accessible and if the repository you are about to use is up-to-date. Third-party Kodi add-on repositories keep on shutting down and thus it creates a hassle for the users. The repository that we have mentioned in our installation guide is up-to-date and functioning well.
