How do i get my logic3 webcam to work


Most modern operating systems come with plug-and-play for devices such as webcams, so simply plugging the webcam into the USB port will most likely trigger Windows to install the necessary driver software.
From there, start whatever software you're using the webcam with (e.g. Skype, AIM) and check that it recognises the new camera. The settings menu will have an option to select the webcam, and will probably show a test image from the camera.
Focus it using the manual focus and you're good to go.

Web comera is not display


The very first step is of course to check your webcam connection. Most webcams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in webcams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in webcam. Also try connecting your webcam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).
The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.
It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem
jackpot00_6.jpg If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, it will be listed under Other Devices.jackpot00_7.jpg In either case you can try to update the drivers. Right-click the device, and in the popup menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.
After uninstalling the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the webcam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your webcam during the software installation.
If the drivers and webcam software are correctly installed, and you still cannot see any video, there can be a problem with the program settings. Most chat and meeting software have a configuration option to select the video source for the webcam feature. If you have multiple devices that qualify for video, you might need to select your webcam device as the source for the webcam feature in that program.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
Lastly, if your webcam's image is not sharp, check to see if it has a focus ring. A blurry image can sometimes simply mean the webcam is not in focus. Adjusting the focus through the ring can solve that problem.
Other picture quality problems with webcams can be addressed by changing the video capture properties for the webcam. Most programs that can use a webcam will have an option to access the properties of the video source, which will bring up the video capture properties window.

My picture is very fuzzy and out of focus


Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that rotates to sharpen the image
Others rely on software in the webcam dashboard that zooms in or out to achieve the best focus
Using a webcam designed for a 2.0 USB connection in a 1.1 USB port will affect the quality

In case no driver for the webcam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.
If this fails, the next step would be to uninstall the software that came with your webcam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party uninstaller.
After uninstalling the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the webcam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your webcam during the software installation.

The picture in my logitech webcam is not clean but cloudy


Launch the logitech toolbar from your desktop or 'All Programs'
Start your webcam from the 'Quick Capture' menu and then move to the 'Settings' menu - try and trim the image from here.
1) Try rotating the focus ring around the lens to achieve the optimum clarity
2) Make sure you have DirectX installed
3) Check your USB ports are 2.0 ('enhanced' - on the USB info in Device Manager) My laptop has 4 USB ports
2 are 1.1 and 2 are 2.0. The difference it makes to my logitech is amazing
4) If all else fails - re-install your software

Gigaware webcam installation not working


Remove the CD, then go to the program files folder and remove the folder that applies to this device. Remove the device from the USB port.

Reboot the PC.

Reinstall the software before you attach the webcam to your PC. Only attach the device when directed by the installation program, or after you have fully installed the software.

It's a pain in the ****, but reboot after you finish installing the software and then attach the device. This will allow the device manager utility to fully recognize the device and apply the appropriate drive files.
