Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

I'm not sure of what is causing the problems, but, my yahoo voice has never been perfect, and I've tried everything to find the correct settings to be able to use the only phone I have NOW! I tried the MajicJack and it took them over a month to tell me the MJ does not work with Satelite Service Providers. I think I uninstalled the MJ correctly, but, again they had me change things so much I am not sure what damage they did? Then I pushed a wrong button on Hotmail, that switched the language to German, that I could not even Identify until yesterday when I finally got back a version of Windows Live Mail that finally ID the language and still can't get rid of but at least I can see the emails in the Live version of Hotmail in English. Because of the continuing problems I get I finally broke down and bought a program RegCure and a few of their partners **** that none of it seems to, not only, not work, but there seems to be no end to the extra programs they want me to buy and when I do, none of them fixed anything, except make it worse!! I talked to a Yahoo tech yesterday, because, although I have a balance on my Yahoo Voice I had not been able to make calls after the re-arrangement of another partner Uniblue that also was suppose to speed up my PC but will not recognize my registery #s I got after paying them.

Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
Hope this helps. Bud

My voice call and video not working


First update your yahoo messenger, then you need to setup voice call and video settings.
To get started, click on the Messenger menu and select"Preferences". When the Preferences window opens, click "Video & Voice" onthe left hand menu. This will bring up your options on the right hand side: If you know immediately which devices you want Yahoo! Messenger to use foryour camera, microphone etc., just select them in the drop down menu. Dependingon your type of computer and other software or hardware you have installed, youmay only have one or many options available. For a guided setup, click the "Open Voice and Video Setup" link in thePreferences window. This will take you through three setup steps where you canselect the devices you want to use for your microphone, speakers/headset and web cam. After selecting each one in the setup, you'll be able to test andconfirm they are working. Once you've successfully completed the Voice and Video Setupsteps, you'll be ready to start making free PC-to-PC calls.

No sound in yahoo messenger


Here's how to troubleshoot microphone and speaker problems:
1. Click the Messenger menu and select Preferences. The Yahoo! Preferences window will open.
2. Under Category on the left, click Voice & Calls. in version 9 or Video & Voice in version 10.
3. Check the microphone and speaker settings:
- For Yahoo! Messenger 9.0, test your selected speaker by clicking the little Play arrow beside it. Then test your selected microphone by speaking into it, if it's working you'll see an animated level indicator.
- For Yahoo! Messenger 10, test your microphone and speakers by clicking the Open Video and Voice Setup link.
4. Check your system volume by clicking the Speaker icon in the Notification Area of your Windows Taskbar, located at the bottom-right corner of your screen.
- Drag the Volume bar to the top.
Remember: If the little speaker icon below that volume slider has a red circle with a slash through it (no symbol), your sound is muted. Click that speaker once to turn off muting.
- Next, if that didn't work, go to the Mixer, located below the volume bar or access it by double-clicking the Speaker icon in the Taskbar. Make sure that none of the options has been set to mute, and that all levels are set to above 50%.
Your microphone and speakers should now be functioning properly.
Here are some additional things to consider:
- If you're using a headset, make sure that the jacks are plugged in to the correct connectors on your computer and that you haven't accidentally selected a mute switch.
- If you're using a USB headset, make sure your USB connection is functioning properly. Try using another USB device in that connection to test to see if it works.
