Yes, I'm also getting this error since yesterday. Can also no longer log in (502 Bad Gateway Error).

Same issue here I just abandoned the windows and mac software and used the web option now.

I am having this problem too and need to "reset app data" to get it to work. However, that requires logging in again which is a pain since it needs to send a code to my mobile, etc. I am now just using the web version since the windows app is such a hassle.

I'm still having this issue, on three separate computers, three separate users. Logging out and logging back in fixes it for me until the next time I use the program. Along with this issue there are graphic anomalies that consistently pop up on certain pages. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, clearing cache, and resetting app date. No change. Web interface is ok.

would LOVE for this error to be fixed. it is happening almost EVERY time i log in now to do anything.  VERY frustrating.   If i use the online interface my check printing options do not work correctly.  Just a pain to use in every aspect. I am starting to really hate QBO

Welcome to this thread, @samiwest, and @Kyle H

 

Thanks for pouring out your sentiments here in the Community. I know how you feel about getting that error every time you log in. Let me chime in and help you get this sorted out. 

 

We can perform basic troubleshooting steps by clearing the cache and cookies that may have caused this unexpected behavior. Let's reset to refresh your QB online Desktop app. Here's how: 
 

  1. Go to the Help (?) icon at the upper right.
  2. Choose Reset App Data.
  3. Wait for the process to complete, then close the app.
  4. When it reopens, right-click the app and Run as Administrator.

 

If resetting the App Data doesn't resolve the issue, you can uninstall and reinstall the program. Read through our help article for the detailed steps: QuickBooks App for Windows and Mac: General support

 

Please keep me posted on if you're able to successfully get past the issue. I'm still here if you need further assistance.

Thank you for the reply!  I already tried resetting the cache and the app data -  when i do both of those things it will work for a short time, but then it is back to acting up with the weird Json error

Hello @samiwest,

 

Let's performing some other troubleshooting steps so you can access your account successfully.

 

To start with, deleting and installing your app removes your history and resolve some issues and errors you've encountered. To delete your app:

  1. Drag the QuickBooks Windows app from the Applications folder to the Trash.
  2. To completely remove the app, go to Finder then choose Empty Trash.

Once completed, you can go back and install the QuickBooks app. You can read this article to do so: QuickBooks App for Windows and Mac - General Support.

 

However, if you still receive the same error message, I'd recommend contacting our Customer Care Support. From there, someone can pull up your account securely and create a case or ticket ID if needed to do so.

 

Thus said, here's how you can contact our dedicated support:

  1. Go to Help.
  2. Select Contact Us.
  3. On the What can we help you with? field, enter the error message you received.
  4. Click Let's talk.
  5. Select Get a callback, Start a chat, or Get the number.

Know that you can always visit our Help Articles for QuickBooks Online in case you need some tips and related articles for your future tasks.

 

If there's anything else that I can help you with, please let me know in the comment section down below. I'll be always around ready to help.

Same issue but thanks for the try.

Katherine, yes, doing "Reset App Data" works, but only for a while then the error eventually re-occurs. Also, the "Reset App Data" is annoying because it requires a login, oftentimes multifactor authentication, etc. Is there a pathway to get this fixed? This whole problem only started happening to me about a month or so ago.

Re: Is anyone else experiencing problems again today? "Something's not quite right Unexpected tok...

I have followed the instructions to contact support.  However, I'm now getting an error when trying to do that.  It tells me something went wrong and to try searching again.  If I do that I keep getting the same error.  I am also frustrated that everytime I go to receive a payment, or basically do ANYTHING!, I have to refresh the program after closing and opening it again.  This never used to happen.  When I am paying as much as I am per month I expect the program to work properly!
