error message "net::err_unknown_url_scheme"

Recommended Posts

1. I use Evernote to write notes on my Samsung Note Pro running on Android 5.0.2. Twice now Evernote will not let me back into a note.  From the All Notes list I can see an image of the note, but when I call it up, I get the error "net::err_unknown_url_scheme"  In the centre of the screen is a square with "Could not load this note" The "retry" button is ineffective.


2. From my desktop running Windows 10, I can open the note. Ditto from my Samsung phone running on Android 4.4.4.  ... but not on my Samsung Note Pro.


3. The note with the problem is about 2mb. I have 19 other notes, all of which are fine.


4. Last time this happened (to another note, but same environment), I was able to edit the note the next day.


5. Is there something that I am doing wrong? Is it a software or compatibility issue?


It would be great to understand this problem since I'm starting to rely on Evernote, and would hate to lose notes.


Help, please.


Thanks for listening.

Hi.  I don't think this is an Evernote error - a quick Google for the phrase gets 1,900+ hits,  mostly for other software.  It could be indirectly due to Evernote not presenting information correctly to the operating system,  but it's not a common problem.  If you'd like to get to the bottom of it I suggest you raise a support query via the help center (see link below).

Just happened to me on android 5.1 note 4. Edited a note, saved it, and now can't open it. UNKNOWN_URL_SCHEMA. Other notes work fine. I'd say evernote messed up when saving the edit. May have to copy content to new note and delete this one

1. Thank you gazumped and isimmons33 for responding to my problem.


2. I was able to remove the error message and access my notes after uninstalling and reinstalling Evernote. 


3. Because Samsung now sells tablets preloaded with Evernote, I needed to root my tablet to uninstall Evernote.  I followed the instructions at http://androidcentral.us/2014/03/root-samsung-galaxy-note-pro-12-2/ The installation went smoothly even though I have Android 5.0.2 and not 4.4.2 as in the example.


Thanks again.
