Re: yahoo instant messenger buddy is typing issue

Haha interesting. perhaps yahoo messenger has added some new features lately. i don't think it's anybody hacking. ask your buddy if he has done anything to do this. if he hasn't, run a virus/spyware scan just in case. however, i really doubt a hacker would go through the trouble of getting into your computer/account just to change the message to buddy is typing and chewing gum.

In yahoo the chat window text is invisible to me why please solve the problem

  • Download Buddy Spy software through Yahoo!, which will allow you to view users when they are invisible.

  • Open Yahoo! Instant Messenger.

  • Click on your main buddy list.

  • View the user names. When the buddy is offline the name will be gray. When the buddy is invisible, it will read invisible next to their name.

  • Send a message to that user in the message window

    Display of my chat is not visible by others even i'm in visible status.

    This is an issue that is cropping up more and more. If just a new problem try exiting Yahoo Messenger and then relaunching it. Even try rebooting your computer. If both those fail to solve your problem then try the suggestions below.

    1) 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:…

    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. Here is link from Microsoft to update that:Download registry cleaner reg in out

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


    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.
