A few days ago before my ISP broke down; I was trying to sign-in to my Yahoo Messenger chat client when I encountered error 81003016. Unlike most error codes that I’ve encountered, 81003016 rarely occur.

From the screenshot below, you can tell that the error was caused by unsuccessful attempt to connect to the internet by the client. The system is busy trying to make a connection to Yahoo. Fixing this error is similar to what I’ve discussed about Yahoo messenger sign-in error 81003004 which pertains to making sure that the Internet connection settings on the Yahoo Messenger chat client is correct.

What exactly happened on my case is that my ISP’s base station broke down thereby disconnecting my internet connection during the time I was trying to sign-in via my Yahoo Messenger chat client resulting in showing the 81003016 error code although there’s really nothing to worry about.

If you have experienced the same and have done some fixing I may not be aware of or anything interesting you’d like to share, the comments section is for you.
