Evening time maximum users log on net for browsing, other work etc. so it's sure that your net speed goes slowest. and if your speed is slowest you will not able to connect yahoo voice server. Please try upgrading your connection speed.

Hi my call botton is always grayed out and it doesnt work i cant make any calls in the yahoo

This may be due to your contact not using Yahoo. If he/she is using Yahoo and your Call button is still gray, it may be because they are chatting with you through their E-mail, or they are using an older version of Yahoo. I always ask my friends when I see my button gray: " Are you on Yahoo Messenger? Are you using the new version?". :D Hope this helped!

Yahoo messenger : unable to login - Web pages open very slow

Most of the times when you try to login to your yahoo messenger you get errors and you are unable to login through your ID. Kindly remember this solution is not for those who have forgotten their password. This is a yahoo servers problem which you can cunningly bypass and you can get your messenger connected.
This was the question asked by an asker
hi,i m getting problem while i m signing in in messenger.its showing message like please re-enter id n password.when i am using that pass word in my yahoo mail it works n also it works in other id but only my id its showing this error.please give me a solution as i am using yahoo messenger daily. thanks
Here goes the solution
Yahoo messenger presently is undergoing few changes at the server end. In order to login efficiently I use to run two ping commands. To do so, press on start button click on run button type cmd in the box and hit ok button. In the black window now type exactly the same in the bracket remember brackets are not included in the command (ping -t) don't forget to put space after .com before typing -t. -t is hyphen t. repeat this message once more and you will be able to login through messenger. Happy chatting
Sorry, I forgot to mention that after the command starts you have to minimize it and login to your messenger. If you are in a chat room. This will increase your speed so that your webcam will be faster and even the voice will be clear. If you wish to further know anything about any of the Chat related or any other technical issues you are most welcome to use fixya. Happy chatting
This is a tiny trick which I rarely tell people. In the organisation where I work thats totally on DSL modem and cat 5 copper cables even they use utp cables when going for more than 150 meters. Local sites open up very easily as the coppers are good but WAN sites from bangalore or delhi would take hours to open. I suffered for around one month then I got this trick. Simply ping the IP of the site to which you wan't to work faster way for you. -t in ping stands for ping continuously non stop till manually stopped. In case you don't know the IP you can simply put the web address like ping -t and you will see the difference in speed on the links of that site. So enjoy and thanks for rating.
This can also be used in case few sites open very slow on your computer. In order to increase the speed of web page opening time you can always use this.

My friend just downloaded yahoo messenger for the first time. We can't voice is grayed out. What can we do to solve this as we did this so we COULD voice chat.

There are 2 things that may be wrong. One is that you may have different versions of Yahoo Messenger. Make sure you both have installed the latest stable version of Yahoo Messenger 10. If you both have that, then it means she does not have a microphone or the microphone is not connected properly to th computer. Make sure the microphone is in the jack that is color labeled pink.

Am unable to see messages which am sending & recieving in instant chat


First try sign off and sign in for few times , if you still face the problem then uninstall the yahoo messenger and reinstall

Even i also faced the same problem , For few times sign off and sign in had worked or even restarting the PC also worked.
But after uninstalling and installing the yahoo messenger i got rid of the problem

If uninstalling and installing the yahoo messenger also not work then follow the below two steps

go to Start Button - Run - type regsvr32 jscript.dll - then press OK
go to Start Button - Run - type regsvr32 vbscript.dll - then press OK

now your yahoo messenger will work normally.

I have the latest version of yahoo messenger but video call and voice call buttons are not active what i need to do to solve this problem ?

If they are grayed out it probably means the person you are chatting with are not chatting from Yahoo Messenger 10
Both parties have to be in version 10 in order to use the video feature.

Voice chat not working

It's clear that you are not using the correct version of Yahoo messenger, some version like Indian version doesn't support voice chat, but US version do. You can download the US version from this link But firstly you need to uninstall the installed version so that it'll not overwrite or retain the old version. Good luck.
