Ok. I was the original poster of this problem, I have now found a way to solve this and will share the solution.

http://p1.pf.re4.yahoo.com/PUT_YOUR_ID_HERE and log in you can now edit your Nick Name.

About your sound problem, try to check your sound driver if it is ok outside of yahoo and if its not go to http://www.freecreed.com to get a codec.

I changed nick name but not show in chat room.


Hi there,

At the Join Room Window, you must select your nickname on the "Join Room as:your nickname"

You can find it on the upper right section of the Room Window, this is where you select first the room that you will enter.

If the nickname still not showing on that section, make sure that you already add your nickname on the aliases.

For some clarification and request how to add aliases just let me know.

Thank you for using fixya

I cant get in chatroom, i doesnt create room list


Hi,

To make a chat room:-
Click on Action, scroll down to Invite a Conference.. and chose any of your friends to chat..

In general:

Yahoo! chat has been problematic for most everyone who tries to enter rooms over the last year .
Billions of Yahoo! website users from all over the world who love to chat,try to enter into the chat room as it's free,so it's server is always busy and not supposed to get you in immediately you ask for it, wait,have patience and you'll have your request accepted.

You might need to first check some settings on your PC.
In your Messenger window:
1. Click on Messenger.
2. Click on Preferances.
3. Click on General.
4. Check box says: "Open web links in new browser window."
5. Check box that says: "Automatically sign me in when I click on a Yahoo link in Messenger."
6,.) Click on Apply.
7.) Click on OK.

If that does not work, you might also need to check these settings:
1.) On your Internet Exploer toolbar, click on tools.
2.) Click on Internet Options.
3.) Click tab that says Programs.
4.) Near the bottom Where it says Default Web Browser, make sure Internet Explorer IS the default web browser.
5.) Click on Apply.
6.) Click on OK.

When the chat room loads wait about 3-5 minutes before clicking "Enter" , that works well for me . Otherwise just keep trying over and over and over usually takes alot of tries . Most likely your giving up too easily . Once you get into the room add it to your favorite rooms , then instead of having to wait for the room list to come up use "Join chat room" >> "Favorites" . Sometimes that works faster .

Also if you are not 18 it wont let you in...Find out in here

Hope this helped

Nick name not display


Click on your Messenger avatar
Select 'Account info' and sign in
Scroll down to 'Manage my Yahoo alias' click link
Make your alias - maximum 6
Click 'close'
Go to top and sign out.

When going through the chat room procedure pause after hitting "join a room" as there will be drop-box on top of the next panel giving you the option to choose what name you wish to use in the chat session

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname


just stay calm ...this was ( you probably already know ) a temporary issue from the yahoo tech crew...and it was from the changes that they made last month or so on the server ...if your problem its still actual ...just contact yahoo suport ..and let them know .....some I heard remain with this kinda problems after they messed up that server ...
anyway ..a solution is to make another account and import all your contacts...and thats all...sometimes they do not fix problems like this ....

Chat room


Yes. Your name will be automatically removed from the chat list and the status message will be shown in the main shout box as "....... has left the room". Hope this clears your doubt.

Cheers.

Cant view webcams in chat rooms


some times you 1st need an invite to view persons cam.

Try this method;
I discovered that I can view chat room webcams by clicking on the name and selecting Send an Instant Message first, then on the IM box select View Webcam under Actions. (It just doesn't work when I click on their name in the chat room list and select View Webcam from there--unless their webcam says Open Webcam)

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY/CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
