The LED light can be forced to off in the software setup.
Remove the power and reboot the camera. It should blink in the first few seconds before it goes back to its programmed mode (either on or off if forced that wayin software).

Having the LED off is a good thing if you want the camera bit more stealthy.

If the power light is not on, it could only mean 3 things, power adapter, power outlet and the camera itself. First, try to connect it to a different power outlet, see if power light will come on, if not use a different power adapter with the same power specs, if still power light is not on, then it has camera could be bad. Call linksys support line and have it replace

    Check for the device warranty, if its still under warranty, for all I know Linksys will replace and send you a new wireless camera.

Once you have properly install the software drivers for
camera, DO NOT UNPLUG it from the USB port unless
you have powered down your laptop computer or
Desktop Computer as it will cause the Camera drivers
to become corrupt.
Like wise plug the camera into the
USB port before powering up your laptop or the
desktop computer so it will recognize the camera and
drivers that are installed.

Do this to get the camera working again.
Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect 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:

Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video
picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and
Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and
Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking
on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click
on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

http://dashboard.aim.com/aim

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the
proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.

The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:

given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My
Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently

before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the
Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify

Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the
Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that
your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror

After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with

Hope this helps. Bud

Doesnt work wirelessly...


see my other posts on this.
1) remove security such as WEP/WPA and see if that fixs it.
2) ping the device to verify you are talking to it wirelessly. Linksys setup software has major bugs
3) move camera super close to wireless AP as setup software uses different wireless protocol than video record software does. After it is setup you can move camera further away.

However, it won't keep connection for more than 24 hours.

Wireless not working


remove wireless security as Linksys won't accept certain WEP keys

ping the device to determine that it is there. This often works and shows it is a Linksys setup problem. If can't even ping the device then you have another bigger problem.

Finally, move the camera to under 5 feet of the wireless access point and then Setup will work. After setup then you can move camera out further.
