Tip

Yahoo Messenger can't sign in - Unable to Connect to Yahoo Messenger


If you are having trouble signing into Yahoo Messenger you should read this article for some Tips and Tricks to get signed in.

There are a couple of things you will want to check first as they are common causes for being unable to sign in.

1) Make sure your internet is working. The easiest way to do this is by trying to visit other websites. After you have tried to visit some websites(it is best to test sites you have never been to before) and you confirm your internet is working but still unable to sign in, then continue to the other tips.

If you can't connect to other websites, you can read my tech article on Resolving Internet Connectivity Issues - "Can't connect to the Internet"

2) Sometimes, Yahoo Messenger will be down completely for everybody on a global level. This can be caused by problems Yahoo may be having or just general technical maintenance. Your only option if this is the case is to wait until it is over. You can confirm the Yahoo Messenger status at the Yahoo Messenger Support page.

If none of the above are the issue then continue below with Advanced steps
1) This tip is a recommendation from Yahoo Tech Support

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.
3. Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.


g33k4u_4.jpg


The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
3. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
4. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:

1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."
2. Enable the "Use proxies" option.
3. Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.
4. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.
5. Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the "OK" button.
6. Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.


2) In some cases you may have a local firewall or anti virus program that is blocking Yahoo Messenger or causing connectivity issues with it. You can try to disable any Firewalls you have and Anti Virus programs and see if you can now sign in. If so, then you will probably need to add exceptions in your firewall or anti virus program to allow Yahoo Messenger. If you need assistance with this step you will need to reach out directly to the company that makes the software. A google search by the application name or company name will bring you to the website where you can find help and contact information.

3) I have worked in Technical Support for many years and a simple but often overlooked step that works is to unistall or reinstall the program. There can be any number of causes for Yahoo Messenger program files to be corrupted or lost. A simple reinstall of Yahoo Messenger can get you back up and running. The best way to do this is through Control Panel in Windows.
-Go to Control Panel > Add and Remove Programs and find Yahoo Messenger in the program list.
-Click unistall and once removed go ahead and reboot your computer.
-Once rebooted, download Yahoo Messenger and install. Click here for the files.
-Once installed, reboot your computer again.
-Once rebooted try to launch Messenger and see if you can sign in.

4) At this point, if you have exhausted all the above steps, I recommend you contact Yahoo Messenger Tech Support directly. Click here for Tech Support.

I hope my article was informative. Check out some of my other Tips and Tricks by clicking on my Username at the top of this article and then going to "Tips" under my profile.

Why does yahoo sign me off? My husband is normally signed into his yahoo account on our laptop, so I sign out of his account and into mine. I can only stay signed in for about 2-3 minutes, then I get a...


Hi!

When you are online with Yahoo Messenger and at the same time sign-in with your yahoo mail account, Your connection with Yahoo Messenger will be lost(and it will sign out automatically) when you tried to open your mail chat.

Or if your status is " Available " on the mail chat of your Yahoo Mail account. Once you sign in on this account, you will be signed out in your Yahoo Mesenger account unexpectedly.

So, here is what you need to do.

Sign in with your Yahoo Mail account. On the upper part of the page, beside your name, click sign out of chat. The message should appear "offline"
Now try signing in with your Yahoo Messenger account. Then after signing in, view the content of your yahoo account. It will not disconnect the connection of your YM.

Let me know if that solve your problem. Please come back and give me some ratings.

Thank You for using Fixya!

81003002 yahoo messenger error


Here’s what you need to do in case you encountered Yahoo messenger error 81003002:
  • Double check your Yahoo ID and password. If at several times of sign in attemps but you still get the same error, restart you PC and if you are connected to a modem or router, do the same.
If you are sure that no virus has actually penetrated the system, there is no need to run a system scan.
  • While some blogs advice reinstallation of the software (of the same verision, i.e. v9) and some may even advice removal of v.9 and installation on an older Yahoo messenger version like Yahoo Messenger 8, do not waste your time as I have already done that. The older version of the IM software no longer works.
Again, if you have had error 81003002 while attempting to sign in to Yahoo, open Windows Task Manager (by pressingCLT+ALT+DEL), select Processes and find YahooMessenger.exe and click End Process. Try to do this several times but if it does not work, then try to reinstall the software. Doing this step does not guarantee that you will be able to sign in but its worth the try. The surprising thing is that when it happened to me, I removed Yahoo Messenger v9 on one of the PCs within my nextwork, the next day when my sister checked it out, she was able to sign in. It just simply fixed itself overtime. Huh?! It’s fascinating why did it happen? Could it be that our IP has been blocked by Yahoo for the entire day and restored it afterward? It’s not a virus as I’m 100% sure. It could be a bug though but I’m not certain what caused it so what I did was reinstall the instant messenger again and I was able to sign in to Yahoo messenger finally.
This is what happened and it’s something that I don’t have any technical reason to offer but I suspect that it was really a bug. Have you experienced the same scenario? What did you do?
FYI, if you are in need of using the application but was caught in a situation similar to the one discussed, you can try signing in to these alternative link or sites to get Yahoo! Messenger access.

Install older version of yahoo messenger..
And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites).
The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail.
I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.)
yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail.
at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.

If you are sure you have the correct password, I would start with changing your user name that you are signing in with. Sometimes yahoo seems to want the "@yahoo.com" with the user name, and sometimes it does not.

If adding or removing the "@yahoo.com" part of the user name doesn't help, go through the "forgotten user name and password" steps.

I can't access any email or messenger account


I encountered this problem last night. I had gotten a virus that changed my lan settings, and even after I removed it the lan settings stayed.

Right click Tools from the Menu bar in Internet Explorer. (If you dont have a menu bar, right click the gray part below the url bar and select Menu Bar from the drop down list)

Select Internet Options from the bottom of the list.

Select the Connections Tab, 5th over at the top.

Click the LAN Settings box torwards the bottom of the page.

Make sure that "Automatically Detect Settings" Is checked, and NOT Proxy Server settings.

Apply changes, close Internet Explorer and reopen.

This should solve your problem.
