SOURCE: instant messaging not working on skype

If you are sending an instant message to a contact who's offline, then you will see the rotating grey circle. Once that contact goes online, he/she will get your instant message.
However, if both of you are online and your messages still can't get through, try calling your contact Skype to Skype to get the message through. I don't know the exact explanation behind it, but that's what we often do and it works.

I want to use Skype IM but all I can get is a stupid ad for selling me phone time.


Hello,

if you are probably trying to cal your friends out of skype, so you need skype credit to call outside. Just in case you add your friends(who are on skype too) to skype, you can call for free.

You can add contact following these steps:

In the menu bar, click Contacts > Add a Contact.

Enter the Email, Phone number, Full name or skype name(if you already know your friend's name on skype) of the person you want to add. If the Skype account of the person you wish to add is displayed, click Add below the contact.

If more than one Skype account matches your search:
Click View for a list of matching Skype accounts and click Add contact next to the one you wish to add. Before the contact can be added, you must send a contact request to that person. Enter some text to introduce yourself and click Send request. The contact will be added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. Once the person agrees to your request, they will be added to your Contact list. Then you can make free calls and free video calls to that person.


Hope this helps,
Lucas

If the Lexmark printer creates any error message that shows offline mode, you might have to convert the printer to online mode. In order to turn on online mode select the start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This shows you all the printers and other devices that are connected to your system at that time. You might have to double click on the printer icon in order to change it to online. A pop up might come up while performing that and you have to go to printer option in the menu bar of pop up window and have to uncheck "Use Printer Offline."

When I try to print I get the message that the printer is off line.


Please confirm your printer is plugged in and powered on. Next you should check your printer cable. If well plugged in and the the offline message persists, the you should try another printer cable, you know is working well. The fact is everything points to your printer cable if the printer is powered on. You may also go to your printer folder and right click on your printer icon th see in the pop up menu for any options for online/offline. If you see any select online. Otherwise you need to try another cable.

Good luck & God bless!

My instant messages were just not going thru to my contact. i know for a fact that he was online. Also he could see my status as "offline" when it should have been online.i have skype version 4.2.0.169


If both of you are online and can't see each other, and your messages are not going through, try calling your contact Skype to Skype to get the message through. I don't know the exact explanation behind it, but that's what we often do and it works.

Problems with Skype connections


We've been using Skype for three years and slowly we have seen it deteriorate in quality and service.
The problem you describe sounds like a bandwidth issue at Skype. You will see the same hting happen on video conferencing if you use it as well. Nothing really you can do other than complain to Skype. If enough of us complain, maybe they will start working on quality again.
