Customer Question
I have just updated...

I have just updated my Skype programme but when I press the communication button bottom left hand corner it connects to the other person but no photo comes on the screen. I see my own photo but the only photo of the other person is their disc profile photo.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Skype?

Only a matter of a couple of weeks ago

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Skype?

I have tried all the things that I used to do about a month ago. as soon as the other person answered their live room would show and my photo would go to a small box in the top right corner.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

Not at this stage

i have the Echo on my laptop and it shows up on my contact list now so do I chat to them because I tried to Skype my contact tonight but it really has not changed. What do I have to do now that Echo is on my contact list?
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 months ago

yes as a test please

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I flicked on the test message but all i got was the recoding on the other end. I said that I can not contact other contacts and they hung up. it was quick to cut off before my message could be replayed. I did not have time to even repeat what I said.
Tech Support Specialist: Richard, Computer Specialist replied 4 months ago

Are you doing this on a windows or mac computer and which version?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am with Microsoft version 8 I think, as it was set up by Optus on a prepaid plan about three years ago. I use a USB stick for the internet. I did not have such trouble up until a few weeks ago so I can not see what the reason is. What is next?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
