It will be my pleasure to help you get to the bottom of this, userjameseajackson19.
Here are the following scenarios why you're unable connect your bank account:
What you can do is reach to your bank and check for any maintenance update or request to establish a connection with QuickBooks. If everything is good from your bank's side, make sure to select the correct bank name when connecting the account.
I'm adding this article that includes a video tutorial: Connect your bank feed using Open Banking. If you're able to connect the account but can't update the transactions because of a bank error, you can read this article to see the solutions: What to do if you get a bank error or can't download transactions in QuickBooks Online.

I've got some steps we can perform to see if this is just triggered by your bank, or in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE), Lschex.
I've checked on this thread and there's no attached photo with the error message you've provided. May I know what's your bank provider? This way we can better isolate if there's an issue with your bank. There are a few reasons why you're getting banking errors in your account. Among these are:
Let's try clicking on Refresh All multiple times on your Banking page to refresh the connection between your financial institutions and QBSE. Then, try connecting your bank account again. If the same thing happens, just manually import your bank transactions using.CSV file. You can get this file from your bank's website. Let me show you how:
For more details about this one, see the Add older transactions to QuickBooks Self-Employed article. Then, categorize and edit your transactions after. Once done, please contact our QBSE Customer Support Team. They'll pull up your account in a secure environment and investigate what's causing this banking error.

I am having same issue. I have been connected for 3 years, but in the last week the connection is broken. I have called the bank and all they say is we are working on it. (are they really??) I was on hold for over an hour to hear that from my bank. If QBO working with First National Bank of PA to get the link back up. I do know before this happened i had many times had to verify who I was with a text. That started about a month or 2 ago. Then last week NO connection.
Very frustrating. I do know how to download the file, but would be nice to have the link back and working. Is there a cache or something i can clear to try it again??
This isn't the kind of impression we want you to have, @brustersingomar.
I want to make sure the connection issue with your bank account gets fixed.
Before anything else, did you receive any error message after you've lost connection between your bank and QuickBooks? Any additional information would help us provide the best resolution based on the error prompt.
In the meantime, you can clear your browser's cache to verify if this is a browser issue. It's possible that the browser had a data issue that caused QuickBooks not to connect with your bank.
Once everything is back to usual, you might want to learn more about categorising bank transactions. This helps you put transactions to the correct accounts.
Should you need any additional assistance connecting your bank account, you can leave a comment below. I'll be sure to get back to you, @brustersingomar.
Thanks for getting back
I did clear the Cache - did not fix it.
Here is the error:
Looks like the connection to First National Bank of PA isn’t available right now.
Try again in a few hours. (102)
Well few hours is more like a week. I did look it up and the 102 error says it is the bank problem. Just didn't know if anyone with QBO connections knew of the issue and if they will be resolved soon. The bank is no help - called them and got not answer.
I appreciate you for performing the troubleshooting steps provided by my peer above, @brustersingomar. Let me add some information on how you can fix the bank error 102 in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).

Had issues with my bank accounts not connecting last week had to delete all and re-connect. Same this happening this week. Yes, I have called the bank and it is not on their end according to them. This really needs to get fixed and no I do not want to have to go through so many steps to download transactions every day. If transactions were already downloaded will they download again? Called support and the person I got was of no help after being on the phone for and hour and half.
What bank are you with? Also what bank account type is it? Are there any error messages or codes showing up at all? Do you use one of our Quickbooks online packages or our self employed package?
I have tried that. I have deleted the bank, re-linked it. I have tried many times for the past week. So this is not a day or 2 fix. My bank is not giving any suggestions.
Yes I know how to download the transactions.
It is frustrating that it worked for years then this last week nothing.
ALSO-- I may repost this issue. Somehow I am in a UK community. Not sure how I got here.
Hi I deleted duckduckgo and my quickbooks linked to bank again, think it's to do with duckduckgo actively blocking other search engines from collecting user data
I think was trying to redirect me back through duckduckgo instead of Google
Mine ok now just gotta learn to do self assessments now :upside_down_face:
My Tide account connected fine to QuickBooks self employed but now is not connecting.
I can get as far as signing into Tide, selecting which account to reconnect with but when it redirects back to QuickBooks it freezes, just minutes of the spinning circle. Pic attached.
How can I help this please before I select another account provider?
