Here's how to troubleshoot microphone and speaker problems:
1. Click the Messenger menu and select Preferences. The Yahoo! Preferences window will open.
2. Under Category on the left, click Voice & Calls. in version 9 or Video & Voice in version 10.
3. Check the microphone and speaker settings:
- For Yahoo! Messenger 9.0, test your selected speaker by clicking the little Play arrow beside it. Then test your selected microphone by speaking into it, if it's working you'll see an animated level indicator.
- For Yahoo! Messenger 10, test your microphone and speakers by clicking the Open Video and Voice Setup link.
4. Check your system volume by clicking the Speaker icon in the Notification Area of your Windows Taskbar, located at the bottom-right corner of your screen.
- Drag the Volume bar to the top.
Remember: If the little speaker icon below that volume slider has a red circle with a slash through it (no symbol), your sound is muted. Click that speaker once to turn off muting.
- Next, if that didn't work, go to the Mixer, located below the volume bar or access it by double-clicking the Speaker icon in the Taskbar. Make sure that none of the options has been set to mute, and that all levels are set to above 50%.
Your microphone and speakers should now be functioning properly.
Here are some additional things to consider:
- If you're using a headset, make sure that the jacks are plugged in to the correct connectors on your computer and that you haven't accidentally selected a mute switch.
- If you're using a USB headset, make sure your USB connection is functioning properly. Try using another USB device in that connection to test to see if it works.

With the Yahoo! Messenger application, you can chat with friends and family over the Internet, and you can also use the contacts you have from your Yahoo! email account. In addition, the application allows you to enter chat rooms, play games, share pictures and transfer files. Using the preferences on your Yahoo! Messenger, you can enable the application to play a sound when you receive a new message, and you can also have your own customized sounds played.

1.Open the Yahoo! Messenger application on your computer. Click on the "Preferences" option from top toolbar menu.
2.Click on the "Alerts and Sounds" option from the Preferences window on the left side of the application.
3.Click on the box next to the "Enable alert sounds" fields and then click on the "I receive a message in Yahoo! Mail" option below the "Alert me when" heading.
4.Click on the box next to the "Playing a sound" field below the "Alert me by" heading and then click on the "Browse" button.
5.Select a sound file from your computer that you want to be used with Yahoo! Messenger and then click on the "OK" button.
6.Click on the "OK" button again and the sound you choose will be enabled in the Yahoo! Messenger application.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

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.

Doesn't work in yahoo messenger


Hi,

If this headset refuses to work on yahoo messenger but is still good, then your messenger or your computer could be having sound problems.

Step 1. Let's start by connecting the headset to your computer, log on to your messenger and try using a call application via yahoo, this would enable you to test your sound. You can right click on the sound icon on the lower right corner of your desktop and click on "Open Volume Mixer". You would be able to increase the sound of your messenger program from there.

Step 2. If Step 1. does not work then you would have to uninstall the present yahoo you have downloaded on your computer, then download version 10

After the installation i bet you would be have your yahoo messenger.

Kind Regards
