I cannot login to yahoo massenger with my any account as it comes sign in problem or forgot your password and try again...and it works with yahoo mail i can access but it fails when i logon to messenger?


Odds are that your firewall is blocking Yahoo Messenger from connecting to the login server. You will need to make an exception in your firewall to allow the program to connect.

If you aren't sure what firewall you're using, then you're probably using the default Windows Firewall.

You didn't specify what operating system you're using, so here are separate instructions for different versions of Windows:

Windows Vista or Windows 7

Click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Firewall -> Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall

Then click Change Settings.

Now scroll down and find Yahoo Messenger and make sure it is checked and allowed.

Finally, click OK.

Windows XP:

Instructions for Windows XP would be a little different, but basically you would just go to Start -> Control Panel, find the Windows Firewall, and then make sure Yahoo Messenger is allowed there. Slightly different process for how to get to the Windows Firewall, but it's essentially the same.

If none of that works, double check to make sure you typed your password in correctly.

Webcam did not work for yahoo messenger chat say webcam is not connected


In addition to the webcam set up you will need to check the support software -
1) Internet Explorer - IE is coded with Yahoo Messenger and responsible for most functions - Signing in, games, etc. You do not need to make it your default browser but keep it up to date and clean.
2) Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab
YAHOO MESSENGER WEBCAM SET UP
Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers
http://www.testmycam.com/
Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.
COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER
You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...


CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.
INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK
TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start.
SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts
AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

Im a first time user of yahoo and it seem I can not sign in to messebger for a video chat


Make sure you download yahoo messenger and install it correctly. Make sure when u sign in on yahoo messenger you only use id only not @yahoo.com so id would be example "freezerfreeboy" <-- no @yahoo.com. For Cam make sure that you have your webcam connected and or if you don't and your trying to connect to someone who has one... firewall needs to unblock yahoo messenger.

When i installed yahoo messenger 10 and when i open chat box with any of my friend my cam bottom is not active even voice call not active


hi try this one.
Once you have the webcam installed on your computer you have to configure it to whatever chat program you wish to use.

YAHOO MESSENGER WEBCAM

Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Sometimes you may have to broadcast the 'small image' option from the 'Webcam' menu on the top of your image frames. This happens when one of you is down on resources -its like sending a large photo by email - its quicker if you cut the size down
you can zoom up to 200% from the same menu when the webcam picture comes through

Use the 'Always on top' option from the 'webcam' menu - or your image will disappear under the message window when you type a message

In addition to the webcam suppliers software most webcams need support software - this point was probably made when you ran the Dynex CD. I have a Logitech cam and need Microsoft DirectX 10

Yahoo server is blocked by firewall settings. options inside connection preferences are not enabled


Hello, have you tried going to Messenger > Connection as Yahoo is trying to sign in? If so, what is it set to? The normal setting to use is No Proxies, but you can switch between Firewall with no proxies or No network detection and see if it makes any difference.

If still it not work uninstall yahoo messenger and reinstall it again.

Please post me if you still face any issue

Cannot make a full connection to yahoo messanger it shuts down.


Hi,

First please uninstall the yahoo and install the latest version of yahoo messenger from net. Next please follow the step by step troubleshooting if you are still facing the issue:

Instructions Step 1:Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
Step 2:Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
Step 3:Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
Step 4:Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
Step 5:Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.
Tips & Warnings Follow your computer system's instructions for checking or modifying the server's TCP ports. Ports numbered 5050, 443 or 80 must be open for the voice features to work.
Install the audio codec software that comes with Windows. PC calls and voice chat require that the software is enabled on your computer.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.
