Connecting then back to Ready to Connect

From the connect screen I enter the Partner ID which I know is correct, the remote control button is selected and I select connect.  Status light goes from Green (Ready to Connect) to Orange (Connecting) but after a while, it just goes back to Green (Ready to Connect).  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it still does not work.  Yesterday it was working fine.

Using the most updated version - seen many other issues with no solutions

    Hello @mhukel,

    Thank you for your message and welcome to the TeamViewer Community! ?

    The issue might be on the remote side. Therefore, I recommend you to do the reinstallation on both sides of the connection.

    This might solve the issue. ?

    Best regards

  • Same problem here.  It worked fine yesterday.  I didn't update anything.  I rebooted this PC, same problem.  Sounds like I'll have to make the long drive to the other PC.  Teamviewer is junk.

  • FINALLY! Someone posting about this. I can NEVER create a topic because for some infuriating reason I can't guess a correct Label to put on it. Why???!!!

    But back to the main point. Reinstall on remote? Doesn't the kind of defeat the purpose of... remoting in? 

    I have the same issue with my elderly father's remote machine (In a senior home. Where nowadays it's difficult to reinstall). However, on another computer at home, I get the message to input the password of that other machine but no password/TV window appears on the other machine.

    I suspect they're related. Any other ideas?

    Reinstalling software is one of the worst solutions to a problem. It should not be needed to fix a problem.

    Totally agree!! How is it rated so highly?! How goodi is RC software where you can't turn on the remote camera or mic? THE only reason I want RC software is so that my 94 year old father doesn't have to tocuh a thing. (Even turning on my own camera/mic is HARD because its' so small and hard to find!! Oh yeah, and I'm a software engineer, so imagine how p-poor it is.).

    It's true what they say: You get what you pay for.

    Any solutions to this? TV is useless until this is fixed.

    PS. And why is the font in this text box so light gray I can barely see it agains a white background?

  • PS. Reinstalling didn't work.

    I CANNOT USE THE SOFTWARE. AND I'M STUCK WITH THIS COMMUNITY BOARD RATHER THAN THE ABILITY TO CONTACT SUPPORT AND GET IMMEDIATE HELP.

     

  • I bought the license for this stuff.  I'll let it expire.  Loaded **Third Party Product**, and it's awesome.
