    You may hear drop outs or poor sound quality in this call. Your Internet connection currently has reliability problems, perhaps due to a weak WiFi signal.

You may be behind a firewall or NAT. You can set an option that you are; if that still does not work, you may need to open some ports on the firewall.
Yahoo! Messenger uses a variety of ports.
Service Ports Chat & Messenger TCP Port 5050: Client Access only Insider/Room Lists TCP Port 80: Client Access only File Transfer TCP Port 80: Server Access.
Your ISP may block this port, as its used for web hosting.
You can change port in Messenger, Preferences, File Transfer. Voice Chat UDP 5000-5010
TCP 5000-5001: Client Access
If UDP Fails, TCP will be used instead, see below. WebCam TCP Port 5100: Client Access Super Webcam TCP Port 5100: Server Access P2P Instant Messages TCP Port 5101: Server Access
PMs between Buddys may not use the Yahoo! Server, but this is not a requirement.

SOURCE: im not able to see incoming and outgoing text

You may not have Internet Explorer as your default browser but it still plays an important part in the operation of Yahoo Messenger. It sits as a link between your browser and Yahoo Messenger.
For this reasson you must keep it up to date and the support software for IE as well.

Keep your software up to date by using an update checker

http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker/
Start with IE and then any support software for Yahoo Messenger - Flashplayer - Shockwaveplayer - Java etc.
Cross check by visiting the Yahoo Messenger Scripting Help page

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/notices/mstabuguqscripterror.html

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
You will have 2 versions if you have 2 browsers so be careful not to delete them.
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

To enable scripting:Internet Explorer8

Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
Restart IE



YAHOO ALL NEW MAIL SCRIPTING

If you are chatting from 'Yahoo All New Mail' and have script problems - try going into 'Yahoo Classic Mail' via the 'Options' tab.If its OK you may have a resolution problem - The screen resolution for All New Mail should be a minimum 1024 x 768 pixels.
Right click on a blank area of your desktop and select 'Personalize'.
Select 'Display Settings.Make a note of your resolution setting. Ramp it up if required.
If this presents a problem go to 'Options' in Yahoo Mail and tranfer to Yahoo Classic Mail.

The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...


2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.


3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run reginout cleaner to easily fix it

I can't call pc to pc


It may have some causes:- First, check your internet connection. You should run the Call Setup Assistant before making voice calls for the first time. To run the Call Setup Assistant: Open the "Messenger" menu in the main Yahoo! Messenger window, and click "Preferences." Then, in the Preferences dialog box, click "Calling and Audio." In the Calling and Audio dialog box, click "Open the Call Setup Assistant." Follow the instructions to test your microphone and speakers and specify your Internet connection. Running the Call Setup Assistant will ensure that you have a high-quality voice experience within Yahoo! Messenger. You can run the Call Setup Assistant at any time to make sure your microphone and speakers are working properly or to change the type of Internet connection you are using. One important thing, your firewall must support outbound TCP (transmission control protocol) connections for the PC-to-PC voice feature to work. You might have a firewall blocking Yahoo! Messenger's PC-to-PC voice feature. If so, you need to open up some outgoing TCP connections. Note that it is the outgoing connections that matter, not incoming connections. In most firewalls, you have to specify a destination port or port range to open. Learn more about which ports Yahoo! Messenger uses. Even if you don't use a firewall, your Internet service provider (ISP) may use a firewall, a network address translator (NAT), or a proxy server that blocks voice traffic. Any of these could prevent you from using the PC-to-PC voice feature in Yahoo! Messenger. Please contact your ISP's network administrator for assistance getting around these issues. You must know that what ports are used by Yahoo! Voice services. Yahoo! Messenger with Voice will work if any one of these TCP ports are open: 5061, 443, 80. At least one of these ports must be open in order to make PC-to-PC or PC-to-phone (Phone Out) calls, or to receive calls (Phone In). If your connection to the web is through an http proxy, then you won't be able to make or receive calls with your PC. Hope it was helpful!
