Unenstall and reinatall. If that dosent help then shoot it andget a new I have had the same problem before. Uninstall and do a compleet maintence. Disk Clean, Defrag, Disk Errors..ect and them reenstall yahoo messanger. you can also got to yahoo and donload the latest messanger and update your exsisting one. The 3004 means that your might be out of date and need to update. If you have had this computer sence 2004 or earler you might just be out of date...Good luck.. And if this dosent work i have a Rifle you can barrow.

Messenger encoutered a connection problem plz check the network connection and then click try again(81003004).always we have to again restart then solve it problem easlly but its very diffucult us.

Is this Windows Live Messenger?

If so, you need to uninstall it properly and completely.

Then go to the WLM website and run it directly from the website.

Do NOT download the program as this does not work.

Click on RUN, NOT download.

Yahoo server is blocked by firewall settings. options inside connection preferences are not enabled

Hello, have you tried going to Messenger > Connection as Yahoo is trying to sign in? If so, what is it set to? The normal setting to use is No Proxies, but you can switch between Firewall with no proxies or No network detection and see if it makes any difference.

If still it not work uninstall yahoo messenger and reinstall it again.

Please post me if you still face any issue

Connection problem 81003004

To solve this kind of network connection in your yahoo messenger, just click on your yahoo messenger, select the connection preferences in the menu and then select the proxy server as the connection preference other than the internet one. then select from either the dial-up, broadband or the high speed t1 lan connection. it's up to you how you connect.
it works for me. hope this can help you.

Cant sign in to yahoo messenger

I believe this problem is caused by a proxy error.  Does Internet Explorer connect to the Internet OK? Do you or your network provider use a proxy? Or a local proxy program such as Privoxy? If no, make sure that Yahoo is set to connect "Firewall with no proxies".  If yes, set Yahoo Messenger to use HTTP proxies.
