PC TO PC CALLS ON YAHOO MESSENGER WON'T WORK


I had installed Yahoo Messenger 9.0 & when I tried making Free PC to PC Calls, the message I'm getting is "Connecting to Voice
Service". After a minute I get a response saying "Unable to
place the call"
So, I uninstalled Yahoo Messenger 9.0 & installed 7.0 instead & there is no change. On Yahoo messenger 7.0, I see the Call Buton, but it is not highlighted, so can't make a call.
My speakers are working just fine. I can hear the ring tone when I checked my Call Setup Assistant. To further test if my speakers were working, I also opened a chat room & I could hear what others were talking

Please help. It worked earlier & I have been getting this problem since
the last 6 days

Thanks

    I went thru the call setup procedure and everything went fine. I tried to make a PC to PC call and the other person could not hear me. The other person also used the call setup procedure and tried to call me - I could not hear them either. Our computers ring with we are called, but there is no sound from each other. Please help!

Unable to chat on Yahoo messenger.. I hear no sound when a person calls me.. Nor can i call them.. This problem happened after i re-installed windows XP. Sound from my speakers is okay.


If you have, for instance, Yahoo Messenger 10 India - it won't work because this version doesn't have any voice facility. Try to update your Yahoo Messenger version to the latest (Yahoo Messenger 10 US). If this won't work, contact Y! for help.

Cant make a call to other pc


To place a free PC-to-PC call to another Yahoo! Messenger customer, you have a choice of three methods:

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.

Hi,
Load the Yahoo home page (see Resources below) and start Yahoo Messenger by signing in using your account information. Sign up for an account by clicking the 'Sign Up' button if you haven't done so already.
  • Step 2 Click on a contact in your Contact List once Yahoo Messenger loads. This will make a number of different contact options appear like sending photos and files, as well as making direct connections.
  • Step 3 Click the 'Call this PC' icon. This causes the other person's computer to alert him or her of your call.
  • Step 4 Check your voicemail by clicking 'Menu' and then clicking the 'Voicemail' option. If you have voice messages, you can easily listen to them here.
  • Step 5 Click on the 'Soundblast' button to choose from a list of different sound effects you can use in your conversation

  • Thank You,
    Your Support Tech.

    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
