Why is my Yes Huddle blinking red very fast and not working?

Yes 4G Huddle

Well, if you have this issue, don’t freak out yet because there’s really nothing wrong with your Yes Huddle. No need to call Yes Care or tweet to @YesCare.

Nobody dropped your Yes Huddle. Nobody stole your Yes 4G account and changed your password. Nothing.

Yes 4G is upgrading its Yes Huddle firmware.

Previously I had this issue but it’s not blinking that fast. It’s just like when the place has no signal at all, the red line just keeps blinking. I freaked out and was cursing Yes 4G and called to their tech support. Was about to screw them, then finally realized that I have changed my password in yes.my but forgot to update it in my Yes Huddle. My bad. 🙂

Anyway, keep your Yes Huddle fully charged and let it automatically update its firmware and when it’s done, just restart your Yes Huddle and voila, everything’s back to normal and follow what I say: YES is amazing! 😛

What’s your say?

P/S: I am still trying to figure out what’s the firmware is all about. Stay tuned in my blog 🙂

  5. Deena says:

    How do you let it update it’s firmware? Just leave it on? And how do you know when it’d done updating it’s firmware?

  6. anonymous says:

    is it normal for the blinking to occur for few days? i can’t connect at all for this last few days..is it normal?? what should i do?

  7. johnkhor says:


    It is normal when you are in a place that has no coverage from Yes 4G.

  8. johnkhor says:


    I have never updated its firmware. Sorry I can’t help you.

  9. Angie says:

    Hai, I put the Huddle to charge for a few hours and it usually turns GREEN to show that it’s fully charged. But now, I put it to charge for more than 8 hours and it is still RED. And I unplugged it, after a while, it shuts down when the battery is exhausted. Do you know what is the problem and how it can be fixed? Thanks.

  10. johnkhor says:

    Hi Angie,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I am really sorry that I can’t help you about this issue. It could be your battery has reached its lifespan? Please do contact Yes Care for further clarification.

  11. ice says:

    My huddle is keep on blinking. I don’t now what to do. I read your post but I still cannot understand what I need to do. I’ll already let my huddle on for a few days but the result is still the same. Does anyone no what am I gonna do? Really need some advise regarding thia problem.

  12. johnkhor says:

    Hi ice,

    Sorry for late reply. I was busy with my USM final exams. The red blinking is usually mismatched user ID and passwords between your Huddle and the server. Just go to while connected to your Huddle. The password word to go into the admin page should be either admin and password should be admin also.

  13. Zyle says:

    IMPORTANT.. For anyone who still have long blinking red on their YES HUDDLE Device, please make sure that BOTH of YES ACCOUNT [https://www.yes.my/mportal/doLogin.do?optionsPageFlag=yes] and YES HUDDLE DEVICE [ while connected to ur device] PASSWORD are CONFIGURED correctly. In my case, I change the YES HUDDLE DEVICE Password but forgot to change password at my YES ACCOUNT. Once done, everything will be back to normal. 😉

  14. johnkhor says:

    Hi Zyle,

    That’s exactly what happened to me and that’s the solution. 🙂 Cheers!

  19. johnkhor says:

    Hi Yi Fung,

    It seems that many people are having issues with their Yes 4G due to some network problem. I believe Yes 4G team is fixing the problem ASAP. Do check with Yes Careline and see if the issue is solved.

  20. johnkhor says:

    Hi atul,

    There is a network issue with Yes 4G. Please check with Yes Careline whether it is fixed already or not. If not, your Yes Huddle will keep on blinking red.

  24. ychoong says:

    I recently notice my YES Huddle XS will automatic start up (When I off it and not using) and exhausted the battery. And once the battery flat, everything like going back to factory setting. Anyone know what happen? Thanks

  25. johnkhor says:

    Hi Valeri,

    Sorry for late reply. I was busy with my another blog, http://www.kayabuttertoast.com. Please check your setting. Go to your browser and go to Type admin for both username and password if I don’t recall wrongly. Then, check whether your account name and password is correct or not. Hope this helps.

  26. johnkhor says:

    Hi Thankful,

    Sorry for late reply. I was busy with my another blog, http://www.kayabuttertoast.com. I am glad that we can be of help to you. Enjoy your YES experience! 🙂

  27. johnkhor says:

    Hi Cemaraindah,

    Please check with Yes 4G about the coverage issue. Last I read in the Internet, there has been a network issue experienced by Yes 4G that affects many users. I believe the issue has been solved. Please check again.

  28. johnkhor says:

    Hi ychoong,

    Sorry for late reply. I was busy with my another blog, http://www.kayabuttertoast.com. I believe your Yes Huddle XS has some issues. Do check with the Yes 4G staff that sold that to you. Maybe you need to exchange with a new one.

  30. suhail says:

    How long it takes to get normal?

  31. CJ says:

    I just changed my yes id password and the device reboot.
    But it’s still not working from afternoon the the night.
    how long does the huddle update take times?

  32. johnkhor says:

    Hi CJ,

    Remember to change your password also in the Yes Huddle by going to so that your device can work.

  33. johnkhor says:


    You need to solve it. Either you are in a place with no coverage or you have changed the password or tinker with the settings already. Go to when you are connected to your Yes Huddle to check the settings especially the password and user id.

  34. johnkhor says:

    Hi Aiman,

    I have not heard of white colour blinks. Please contact Yes Support for more info. Sorry that I can’t help.

  35. Clement says:

    Hi Johnkhor,
    My huddle xs have weak signal problem, may U know what’s the problem with it ?
    Please help.

  36. johnkhor says:

    Hi Clement,

    There is nothing you can do, I guess. Either you factory reset it and check again. If not, go to the nearest Yes 4G Store and ask them to help you to diagnose the problem and fix it. Hopefully your unit is still under warranty.

  37. sue says:

    I always having problem with 4g line when my huddle near to unifi connection.. my huddle blinking red and blue rapily.. n of coz automatic my wifi olso not really working proper… huhu.. what should i do..??

  38. lemonade says:

    i try to follow @zyle instruction..but i cannot access page while being connected to my huddle. my huddle is blinking, and obviously there is no internet connection. how can i load the page??when i connect using other wifi, and try to login using hint ‘admin’, the login failed..help me please…

  39. johnkhor says:

    Hi Lemonade,

    Sorry for late reply. I concentrate a lot on http://www.kayabuttertoast.com that I didn’t update my blog here anymore. For your issue, do make sure that your computer/tablets/smartphone is connected to your Huddle. Then only type in the browser. Maybe you want to minus the s in the https:… You can only change the settings of your Huddle when you are connected to your Huddle. If you connect to other WiFi network, then when you type, you are accessing the other network’s settings. Hope this helps.

    My yes huddle after restart also same.cannot use..can connect but cant use internet.got lock sign..

  41. Miss says:

    Hai… i want to know, tes broadband can be used if the area was not covered with 4g?

  42. Anny says:

    For the issue of 4G signal blinking red rapidly, if you ever have updated/changed password in http://www.yes.my account, you will NEED to update in the Yes Huddle too ( make sure the password are both same. Hope this helps!

  43. johnkhor says:

    Dear Miss,

    Nope. If Yes 4G is not covered in that area, you can’t use it.

  44. johnkhor says:

    Dear Thankaran,

    You need to go to and if I am not mistaken, the username and password are the same. Type ‘admin’ and you will go in the settings of Yes Huddle. Make sure your Yes account ID and password are correct and you will be able to use it. Your Yes Huddle WiFi password and SSID might not be the same as your Yes account ID.

    Hope this helps. TQ

    Thank you so much! I am having the problem since yesterday. Thanks again!
