I can't delete my account! elle.washere23 11/8/09 12:03 PM
I have this backup account of mine on YouTube, but now I've figured after about a month of having it that I don't really need it. When I go to the area where you'd go to delete your account all I get is the spinning wheel of death (loading) and it never stops, therefore I am unable to delete my account. Now, I figured it was something that would be fixed, and I had went to try it on my main account. It works fine! So, I logged back on to my side, and it wouldn't I tryed it on three different computers, and on Internet Explorer, and Safari! Is anyone else having this problem? Is there anyway it can be fixed?

I think it has to do with when your accounts are linked.

I need to delete my account and I want to link it to another account and I am also unable to delete my account.
I have tried to delete my account for about a couple days now and it hasn't worked.
None of the options work in the Manage My Account section.

Many people are unable to access some of the account management pages. I think we're on the fourth day of this error.

The "official" explanation is here:

I can't delete my YouTube account from my Google Account either. Under Manage Account, I click Delete and an error message comes up saying my password is incorrect - but - umm - it's not. I logged into the account using it and there's no window instructing me to confirm the deletion of the account with a password anyway, so I don't have any clue what to do. So lame. So frustrating.

It IS confusing, but the problem is, to delete the YouTube account separately from your Google account, you have to "separate" (unlink) your YouTube account from your Google account first. Below the delete account section is the option to unlink YouTube from Google.
 
Once unlinked, the delete account option will now provide a password box (that's missing if the account is still linked to Google).
 
But! Some accounts were created or edited to contain data that makes the two accounts permanently attached. There IS no "unlink" option for that type of account, you just can't do it. They say they're working on solutions, working on a way to allow users to manage links between accounts, but until then, you apparently CAN'T delete a permanently linked YouTube account. If you delete the Google account it only disables access to your YouTube account, the account remains visible to all, and without your Google account you don't have permission to edit or close the YouTube account any more! If you look around the Google page for a way to delete JUST the linked YouTube account, you won't find it.

Ok I had the same problem but I solved it this way.  Go to the account setting in You Tube and if you can de-link your account (It's in the manage account part)  When you have delinked LOG OUT of You Tube and log back in but make sure you log in using your You Tube name and password not the Google email address you had been using.  Now go to where you can delete your account and this time there will be a little box above where you put your reason for leaving, this is where you put your You Tube password.  Then click delete account and that's what worked for me.

BTW I then went and used the exact same Google email address to make a new You Tube account with no problems.

It says to me "wrong password" THERE IS NO PLACE TO INPUT A PASSWORD TO!!!! >8(

Sometimes it just says that there is an error. ANNOYING!!!!
Re: I can't delete my account! Nagoya1999 5/27/10 11:33 PM
Unlinking won't work, I get this message:

500 Internal Server Error

Sorry, something went wrong.

A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched to deal with this situation.

Re: I can't delete my account! Lanc3Uppercut 6/2/10 1:09 PM
Same for me. Cant unlink the accounts (505 error) and cant delete the account because it says my password is incorrect but doesnt have a place to put in a "correct password"
Re: I can't delete my account! ApocalypseBerzerk 6/21/10 9:13 PM
Just deleted my channel. You have to unlink Google and YT channel first (but remember, you need the password that you used before linking the accounts to delete the channel). When you unlink YT and Google account, and go to delete the account, you will have a field to type your password  (the one used before linking YT and Google accounts) and reasons for deletion. You will be deleted and logged off.
