  • Hi,

    The error “sorry we could not connect to Microsoft services right now. If this problem persists ,search for network problems on the start screen " occurs  because of an issue with Microsoft account or

    1.Corrupt Microsoft Account settings

    2.Can’t connect to the sync service

    3.Problems with Microsoft account Policy

    4.Microsoft Account required

    5.Connection issues due to proxy or certificate issues

    I suggest to download and run the Microsoft account troubleshooter to fix this issuse:

    Same for me. I have a Microsoft account and can sign into it through the web portal, but when a Microsoft App tries, It cannot find/access it. I am using Windows 10 and Office 365.

  • im having the same problem. I bought a windows rt surface tablet/pc. I set it up and it wouldn't let me sign into my Microsoft account, so I set up a local account and now I can not sign into my Microsoft account. I go in and type everything in and it come back with "sorry we could not connect to microsoft services right now.If this problem persists ,search for network problems on the start screen". I do that and theres nothing wrong. I tried the Microsoft accound troubleshooter and it tell me that i need a Microsoft account to sync my setting and that a Microsoft account is required. i need HELP BAD!!!! im using this tablet/pc for school and i need this fixed asap.
