Question about Logitech QuickCam Express Web Camera

1 Answer

Camera self activating

Never had a problem in 3 years. Great little thing. Now it has been self-activating for the last 3 weeks. 1st week before l installed a further 512mb of RAM and for the last 2 since installation. I have reinstalled it 3 times. Personal opinion is l have a hacker. I have not installed any additional software except Norton 2009. I did have problems with 2008 so Norton installed it free of charge. Geek Squad assured me l have no viruses and all my updates are up to date. When l hear the hard drive activate the camera clicks on and l was initially unable to turn it off. After a lot of frustration and pulling it out of the back of my computer l found that if l went into MSN and activated tools then audio and camera set up that if l clicked none the light would go off, then if l clicked on it again and the light would go back on and upon clicking finish it would stay off. Microsoft recommended checking out the camera first before reporting it to FBI. I also notice increased activity in the processes on programmes that l was not using at the times of the activations. Help!!!! Please tell me that it is just a software conflict or that there is a way to ensure that l can switch off automatic activation and that l do not have a hacker.

Insinkerator evolution (3/4 horse) runs fine, but teeth won't grind most things anymore. It worked fine up until the last few weeks. Is there a way to replace or repair the grinding mechanism?

Nope - the guts are made out of cheap metals that corrode quickly and get stuck inside. Shame because the motors are great but every thing else is designed to self destruct so you have to keep getting new ones! Like nylons for the ladies.

I have a crystal ihd 6000 system on my boat and it sounded great for the 1st few only 2 speakers work and it reads invalid when trying to set up the other channels.....

Corrosion. TIme to open it up and spray the switch contacts and controls with a contact cleaner. This includes any jacks. My preference is for LPS 1, it cleans well and leaves little residue. I know some people who trust WD40 with their electronics, I would only consider it as a last resort as it has a reputation of gluing things together.

This could be a flow problem and you will need to check your pump baskets for junk and make sure your filter is clean. Also you can check your flow switch to be sure it is working.

I keep putting in new or recharged batteries and every time I get ready to use my camera if it over a week, it says change the batteries. This has just started happening the last 3 months. The camera is...

The rechargeable batteries, especialy NiCD and NiMH ones, loose they're charge over time. Even if fully charged, they loose all of the charge within a week or two. This is not a malfunction.

However, if you are using alcaline batteries and still get this problem, probably you have some electric problems inside (maybe some batteries leaked in the past). In this case try cleaning the inner contacts of the battery slot. If the problem persists, go to a local electronist for repairs.

Kodak easy share digital camera m863

I have a Easy Share M863 and have had it less than a year. It was working great and then last week I tried turning it on and it would not open. I thought it might be the battery needed charging so I did that. It still will not open. I contacted Kodak and they told me they would give me 15% on a new digital camera. That is not what I wanted. My camera is not even a year old. It should have lasted longer I think.

Ricoh KR-5 SUPER II Shutter will not activate.

I doubt you still need help with this considering it's over 8 months later... but the same thing has been happening to me lately, I've had to force the self timer to start by giving it a little push, once it gets going it starts to work normally again.
