    Same problem here! Been having it for about two weeks now. I have two OS on my Mac book, unable to use Yahoo PC to PC or Yahoo Phone Out services on both Windows and Leopard. Incidentally this happened right after I reloaded my Phone Out balance. Chatted with 4 yahoo reps, with no concrete results yet. It seems to have been escalated now to their engineering department. Note: Chat service is offered to people who use Phone Out.

    Also, the voice service worked on two occasions in the past two weeks and this happened at the same time I was chatting with the yahoo rep. I am now sure that this is not a problem with our system, so don't bother tweaking your system.

    I have the same problem I've switched between version 8 and 9, confirmed the correct TCP port is open, I've tried the recommended ones... I'm not getting results either.

  • Leanne Whalen Feb 05, 2009

    I have the same problem here, too, I've switched between versions 8 and 9, I've ensured the correct TCP ports are open (tried all 4 they recommend on the site)..

    I've had the problem since Jan 28 as well. Nice to know that it's "systemic" and not something on my end. .


  • Leanne Whalen Feb 05, 2009

    I'm having the same problems. I've switched from version 8 to version 9 and back, and seeing the exact same errors that have been reported by the rest of you.

    I'm just relieved it's not just on my end, but it does seem to be pretty random. It works for other friends of mine.

    Hope to hear the answer soon!

Method 1: If you wish to call someone on your Messenger List:

  1. Roll your mouse over the contact's name.
  2. Click the Phone icon that appears to the right of their name, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  3. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Method 2: Using the "Actions" menu to use "Call Computer":

  1. Click the Actions menu and select Call Computer.
  2. The "Call Computer" dialog box will appear, choose the appropriate tab:
    • For contacts on your Messenger List, click the My Contacts tab and then select the contact's name.
    • For someone not on your Messenger List, click the Other Contact tab and then enter the contact'sYahoo! ID.
  3. Click OK, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  4. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Method 3: During an instant message conversation:

  1. Start an instant message conversation with someone.
  2. Click the Call button in the toolbar of your IM window, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  3. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Important: No 911 or other emergency calling services are available on Yahoo! Messenger at this time.

Please inform anyone using your Yahoo! Messenger that 911 or other emergency calling services are not available, and that they must call 911 or other relevant emergency calling services through their traditional telephone or mobile carrier.

Yahoo messenger error 81003016


HI welcome to fixya free solutions. you are getting this error because of connection error! try to go to messenger then connection preference, its on the top left of your yahoo messenger..choose connect directly to the internet then apply. mess 9 noted for this error.

Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either.Try using 8.1 "the newest before 9", until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 or older versions trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not showing,pictures not showing.Chat rooms not found or opening. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/…
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work best.Left over files and fragments from using control panel to remove messenger can cause problems/conflicts with the new download.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym…
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.
And it works well with Vista.
Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here.
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Flash-Play…

Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You can increase your memory by going to start button, settings, control panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory, change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok . This applys for all instant messengers,MSN, Yahoo,skype ect. And yahoo games.
More help can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/userid.html.

If none of these work for you then kindly do comment back to me.

Yahoo Messenger 9 Vista Installation Problems


Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.
http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/10/27/installing-90-on-windows-vista/

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
