    Did not work :-( gave me a error message box: 


    "You have been disconnected from FaceTime



    An internal error occurred that disconnected you from

    all FaceTime services.  To resume using FaceTime,

    quit and relaunch FaceTime"

    I did everything you said entered the name registrationV1

    Account  registration V1

    Where: (Where can I enter this?  The menu never asks for "WHERE") I did not enter this.


    Restarted and then tried to enter FaceTime and I got the same error message to check my network connection.


    Any other suggestions?  Maybe some Network settings?  Sharing settings? 


    I installed Lion weeks ago and tried many things suggested by our university's computer tech (who is well versed in Apple computers, and nothing to date works.


    I thought by now we would have  some solution but nothing as of 8/17/11.

    Go to Spotlight "Q" - (Located aat the very top on right side of screen) and type in Keychains and click on top hit, which on the drop down menu should say "Keychain Access" click on this.  You should now have a keychain menu at the top of your screen - Under "FILE" click on "New Password Item"  HOWEVER, if you see my comment above there is no place to enter Where:  I did all this as my post above states, restarted, entered my apple ID and password on FaceTime and the same fricken messaage appeared something to the effect that I should check my network connection, which I did and everything works fine there.


    So, in the end FaceTime (a real loser application to date), still does not work.  I still cannot get into it and never saw it work since I installed LION.  I have wasted more time on this application than I want to remember.  Horrible for Apple not to solve it yet -- just unbelievable.

    I was having the same problem.  The keychain solution posted previously worked for me !!!



    Name: registrationV1

    Account: registrationV1

    Where:   (i think this automatically filled in)


    Password:  <Add your apple id facetime pw here>



    Then, restart your Mac.


    After i did this, not only did my desktop work, it synced to my laptop and all my favorites appeard !


    Best regards!

    I've tried different things, nothing worked. What I've tried:

    - deleting all preference files

    - modified host file

    - repaired disk permissions

    - added the additional login to the keychain


    .... Nothing worked.


    Eventually I deleted all FaceTime related entries from the keychain, relaunched FaceTime and that did the trick.

    Maybe this might help someone.

    Thank you!!!!

  • Jake4653 Level 1 Level 1

    OK. After hours of dicking around, what finally worked is I deleted the keychains regarding Facetime, restarted the computer, and there was access to the preferences panel.

    Hi jackel06,


    You are a star jackel06!    I did what you said and it worked perfectly.  Now, why didn't Apple solve this before you?  Why did we have to "dick around" for all this time, when they could have included this in an update?


    How many times I tried suggestions and Facetime still did not work.  Several times I deleted files that interferred with the operation of my macbook pro.  One struggle after another and then you come along and simply solve it.
