1.for 9 beta: *Can you see your cam clearly? I mean no black screen. If your web-cam is having black screen, then you have to set it. On main messenger screen: click messenger click connection tick "connect directly to the internet" click apply and ok. Then open your cam and check if it working or not. *Visit:

first you properly install the Web Cam Software, then you open the Yahoo messenger and again access the web cam. I hope it will work fine. sometimes yahoo messenger not access to Web Cam, that time yahoo messanger not working properly.
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 # 18.104.22.168 . 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.
i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL... i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop! does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!! MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!
laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!
