    When try to take a photo, the message:"Please turn the camera on" appeares. Try to turn the camera on, but nothing happened, maybe one short flash on the screen and gray again.

    If try a video, no message but also nothing happened.

    I have Toshiba Satellite A205 and I think S4617 model.

    How to start my camera?

One probable cause of this is that you're using a third party messenger tool (e.g. Skype, Yahoo Messenger) to access your webcam. If El-Tokyo's solution won't work, try the following:


1. Run system configuration by typing msconfig on the Start > "start search" field
2. Go to the "Startup" tab > uncheck Chicony traybar
3. Run device manager by typing Device Manager on Start > "start search" field
4. On the device manager window, go to "Imaging Devices" Chicony Camera 2.0 > right click > properties > driver > Rollback Driver
5. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.


Hope this helps.

Here are the steps that you need to do.. First turn off User Account Control (UAC),. That is under control panel. Then download camera assistant software and save it in your desktop desktop. You can get it at support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support for canadian model. Make sure you properly save it on your desktop. Then uninstall camera assistamt software from the add remove programs. Re start your notebook. Then install the camera assistant software. Re start again your notebook. Launch camera assistant software. It will work this time.

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


You have an application that is grabbing the webcam on bootup, so the best way is to disable this program from runnning. To do this, click Start - Run and type "msconfig" and press enter.

Click on the Startup tab and this will bring up a list of all the things you have booting. Look for webcam manager, and remove the checkmark beside it. Click Ok and then reboot. Problem should be solverd

Check if you download any new application that makes a conflict with your webcam? just remeber if you did download any program and this makes the problems, if you donot want to do this , just go to start, programms, accessories, system tools, and restore yout pc to the day before this problem happened and you will be fine.

Best Regards

Locked by another aoolication (web cam) please advise


Do you have a fire wall running on your PC. If so disable your firewall and check to see if the web cam starts. If this is not the case do you have any type of internet child protection software installed?
