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.


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.

How to down load a new

Please go to this link
Yahoo Messenger
Then click on the big button that says "Download Now"
Wait until it's done. Run the program that you've just downloaded. It will install the latest Messenger on your laptop. If you already have a messenger on your laptop, you might need to uninstall it first.
Go to Control Panel
For Windows XP : Double click Add/Remove programs on the Control Panel > then remove Yahoo Messenger.
For Windows Vista and 7 : go to Control Panel > Program and Features > Uninstall Yahoo messenger from there.
Hope this helps!

I can't sign in my yahoo messenger it always troubleshoot my internet connection is ok...

Similar "can't sign in" problems may be caused by your company/school network. Lots of networks may have firewall blocking instant messaging services.

If you are blocked, try to use KarooLark web Yahoo! messenger: . It also supports other web messengers too.

I downloaded and set up yahoo messenger I signed out by accident how do I sign back in

I assume you are accessing Yahoo! Messenger from your Computer. Well, if you've signed out, simply open the Yahoo! Messenger and sign in again using your Yahoo ID and Password. You should have a Yahoo Messenger icon similar to this on your desktop...

When it is opened, you'll see the sign-in box which should look more or less similar to this:

You can also open the Yahoo! Messenger from the Taskbar, double-click the Yahoo!Messenger icon on the taskbar to open it.. (reddened icon below)

If you can't find it on the desktop or on the taskbar, click "Start" > "All Programs" > "Yahoo! Messenger" and open it, or you should see the Yahoo!Messenger icon in the Start Menu Program lists.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

1. Make sure you have a stable internet connection.
2. Check for spelling and capital letters on your username and password when signing in.
3. Upgrade the Internet Explorer of your Windows. Yahoo products like yahoo messenger rely its connection via Internet Explorer. (Doesn't matter if you are using different internet browser like firefox or safari...just upgrade IE)
this will help you sign in with ease.

Good Luck and please rate my answer.

I am trying helping my Great Grandma get into yahoo messenger so she can get her IMs, when she presses the Sign In button when your inactive, it tries signing in, but then fails, i have no clue in whats...


First, you need to have a very active internet service before you can access yahoo messenger.

Then check if it is the latest yahoo messenger service she is using, because trying to use the older version might result in you having the signing in fail try again message.

So check the version and internet service you use before you can start running the yahoo messenger service.

Take care
