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.

My webcam :(

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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Uninstall the Microsoft LifeCam and disconnect your camera.
Go to this site:,en

Download the software for the QuickCam Ultra Vision 5. Save to your hard disk and then run the program.
Reinstall the LifeCam software and then plug in the camera. LifeCam will use the Logitech Drivers and your camera should work fine.

Canon Vizcam 1000 fading fast

Hello Pelota, Here is what is happening, most web cams are charge-coupled device CCD type image devices they work by caturing the image as it changes the charge along the surface of a capacitive matrix. Over time this matrix begins to break down. This is what you are experiencing. The cheaper the camera the faster the breakdown of the matrix. It can not be helped. The fact is as all of these digital cameras get older they will begin the dim and have poor color resolution due to the CCD matrix decaying. I hope this helps.
