Is Zoom Down… Or Is It You?

Having trouble with your video conferencing app? Or is it your problem?

You’re trying to connect to Zoom, but it’s not working? There may be zoom failures.

On the other hand, there could be a problem with your internet or WiFi or your computer. Luckily, there are a few key methods you can use to figure out if the problem is yours or if Zoom is down for everyone.

How to check if zoom is down

If you think Zoom is down for everyone, not just you, try these quick steps to make sure you’re right.

Check out the Zoom service status page. The Zoom status page says “Is Zoom Working?” It’s the perfect place to go first when in doubt. It breaks down every part of Zoom to show you exactly what’s working right now and what might have issues.

Search #zoomdown on Twitter. If the page is down for everyone, chances are someone tweeted about it. Also pay attention to tweet timestamps to find tweets and make sure you’re not talking about an earlier point in time when Zoom didn’t work. You may also receive other Tweets that use the word “zoom”.

Can’t access Twitter? Try another big site like Google or YouTube. If you can’t see both, the problem is most likely with you or your ISP.

Use a third-party “health checker” site. Popular options include Down For Everyone Or Just Me, Downdetector, and Is It Down Right Now?. Everyone will tell you whether Zoom works for everyone else.

If no one reports a Zoom issue, the issue is most likely yours.

What should I do if I can’t connect to Zoom?

If Zoom works great for everyone else, but not for you, here are a few things you can try.

Make sure you are actually visiting https://zoom.us and not an unofficial clone or fake address.

If you can’t access Zoom in your web browser, try using the Zoom app on your PC, Mac, or phone. If the Zoom app seems to be down, try using your phone or tablet’s browser instead.

Close all browser windows, wait 30 seconds, open a window, and try accessing the Zoom site again. Do the same in the Zoom app. If you are using the app on your smartphone or tablet, make sure you close the app properly. Learn how to close an Android app and how to completely close the app instead of just closing it on your iPhone.

If an app or browser window freezes and does not close properly, try restarting the device instead.

Clear your browser’s cache.

Delete your browser’s cookies.

Check your computer for malware.

Restart your computer.

Sometimes there can be a problem with the DNS server. There are many free and open methods to change DNS servers, but may require more advanced knowledge.

If Zoom didn’t solve the problem, there may be a problem with your internet connection. The big problem is when too many devices taking up your network bandwidth will eventually slow down your internet and make it unusable. This can be a significant problem for video conferencing apps like Zoom, which rely on a lot of bandwidth. But it can be more complicated. Contact your ISP for further assistance.

Zoom error message

PayPal can display standard HTTP status code errors, such as 500 Internal Server Error, 403 Forbidden, and 404 Not Found, but may also display certain Zoom specific error codes. Here are the most important things you need to know.

  • Error code 5000-5004 or 104101-104118: This error code means there is a problem connecting to the Zoom servers. This may mean that a firewall or antivirus software is blocking the server, so you should disable the server. Sometimes it can simply mean that the service is down.

If you are still having problems using Zoom, please be patient. When the demand for Zoom is high, simply overloading it can cause problems and bugs. This can be especially problematic when meetings start on time. Start the meeting after a few minutes to avoid a global “rush” to avoid mistakes.

What to Do When You Can’t Connect to Zoom

There are a few things you can try if Zoom seems to be working fine for everyone else, but not you.

Make sure you’re actually visiting https://zoom.us and not an unofficial clone or the wrong address. 

If you can’t access Zoom from your web browser, try using the Zoom app on your PC, Mac or phone. If the Zoom app seems to be down, try using the browser on your smartphone or tablet instead.

Close all of your browser windows, wait 30 seconds, open one window, and then try accessing the Zoom site again.

If nothing has fixed Zoom for you, you may have a problem with your internet connection. One major issue can be when you have too many devices using up your network bandwidth eventually slowing down your internet so you can’t use it. This can be a pivotal issue for video conferencing apps like Zoom which rely on a lot of bandwidth. However, it can be more complicated than that. Contact your ISP to gain further help. 

Zoom Error Messages

PayPal can display standard HTTP status code errors such as 500 Internal Server Error, 403 Forbidden and 404 Not Found, but it can also display specific error codes exclusive to Zoom. Here’s the key one to know.

Error code 5000-5004 or 104101-104118: This error code means there’s a problem with connecting to Zoom’s servers. It can mean your firewall or antivirus software is blocking the servers, so you need to disable them. Sometimes, it can also simply mean the service is down. 

If you’re still having issues with Zoom, try waiting it out. When Zoom is in heavy demand, it can run into issues and throw up errors when it’s simply overloaded. In particular, if you have a meeting starting on the hour, there can be a problem. Try to start meetings a few minutes after the hour to avoid the global ‘rush’ so you don’t have any errors.
