Let’s take a look at the description of the process involved concerning each of the listed solutions.
1] Reset the Microsoft Store cache
This solution requires you to clear/reset the Microsoft Store cache and then retry the sign-in with your Microsoft Account. If the error 0x800706d9 is still unresolved, continue with the next solution.
2] Create a new User Account
You may have a corrupted user account and that might be triggering the error 0x800706d9. In which case, you can try creating a new user account and then use it to sign in to the Windows Store and see if the issue will persist.
3] Run SFC and DISM scan
If you have system file errors, you may encounter the Microsoft Account sign in error 0x800706d9.
The SFC/DISM is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.
For the purposes of ease and convenience, you can run the scan using the procedure below.
- Press Windows key + R to invoke the Run dialog.
- In the Run dialog box, type notepad and hit Enter to open Notepad.
- Copy and paste the syntax below into the text editor.
@echo off date /t & time /t echo Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup echo ... date /t & time /t echo Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth echo ... date /t & time /t echo SFC /scannow SFC /scannow date /t & time /t pause
- Save the file with a name and append the .bat file extension – eg; SFC_DISM_scan.bat.
- Repeatedly run the batch file with admin privilege (right-click the saved file and select Run as Administrator from the context menu) until it reports no errors.
- Restart your PC.
Try to sign in again and see if the issue is resolved. If not proceed with the next solution.
4] Reset Firewall settings to default
Reset Firewall settings to default and then try again.
5] Perform System Restore
If you noticed that the error started to occur recently, it’s entirely possible that the issue was facilitated by a change that your system has gone through recently.
If you have no idea what changed that might have ended up breaking the printing functionality of your Office applications, you can use System Restore (any changes like application install, user preferences and anything else made after the restore point will be lost) to revert to a date where you’re certain that the printer was working properly.
To perform System Restore, do the following:
- Press Windows key + R.
- In the Run dialog box, type rstrui and hit Enter to open up the System Restore Wizard.
- Once you arrive at the initial screen of System Restore, click Next to advance to the next window.
- At the next screen, start by checking the box associated with Show more restore points.
- After you’ve done this, select a point that has an older date than the one in which you first started to notice the error.
- Click Next to advance to the next menu.
- Click Finish and confirm at the final prompt.
At the next system startup, your older computer state will be enforced.
If the issue is still unresolved, try the next solution.
6] Perform a Fresh Start, In-place upgrade repair or Cloud Reset
At this point, if the problem is still unresolved, it’s most likely due to some kind of system corruption that cannot be resolved conventionally. In this case, you can try Fresh Start, In-place upgrade repair to reset every Windows component. Also, if you’re running Windows 10 version 1909 and later, you can try Cloud Reset and see if that helps.
Any of these solutions should work for you!
