Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

EVERY SOLUTION I HAVE FOUND SAYS TO DOWNLOAD THIS OR THAT...HOW DO YOU DO THAT WHEN YOU CAN'T GET ANY RESPONSE FROM YOUR COMPUTER?


Press and hold the power button for 5-8 seconds to turn it off.
Once it's off, turn on the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight safe mode with networking and hit enter.
If you can get inside safe mode without any problem, then connect to the internet in safe mode with networking and install RadarSync. Scan your computer using the software so that you will know which drivers are outdated.
It might also caused by a virus infection, so I suggest that you also run an anti-virus scan.

The last option if everything fails is to reinstall the operating system.

Let me know if you have any questions.

When i try to start the webcam application a message pops up saying that the webcam initialization failed. please check your camera device and restart application or computer


Hi, Did you try restarting your computer? It may be that something is blocking the application such as firewall or anti-virus. etc... If you are computer savy look in to firewall settings. Then restart and try webcam again. Good luck.

L have the cd but it will not download on my comptuer


If you have any other camera software, make sure you un-install it.

Place the disk in the Cd-rom. Open "my computer" and double click on the cd-rom drive that contains the disk. Double click on setup.exe.

This software takes approximately 15 minutes to install. Once installed, reboot the computer.

If you are still having problems; disable firewall and anti-virus before you install. After installation, enable the firewall and anti-virus and answer yes to any incoming/outgoing signals that your firewall tries to block.

I may have stumbled on a solution. In the past every time I installed the software from the CD it turned off the Windows Firewall.

The Webcam worked for a few hours then began showing the error.
This time, I turned off the Windows Firewall, the anti-virus software, and Windows automatic update. After installation, I turned all of them back on.

The Webcam has been working flawlessly for the past two days.
I think there is more then one culprit that causes the error.

First, the Windows Firewall second is when one adjusts the Taskbar using msconfig.

I strongly suggest that you do not turn off any of the installed Logitech startup icons.
