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

Common Projection TV Problems and Fixes


In this article we will will outline some of the most common projection TV problems, fixes, pros and cons, and average lifespan.
Average Lifespan: 7-20 YearsPros: Large screen size and excellent picture quality. Some model support HD. Very reliable when they are cared for.
Cons: Heavier and bulkier than the newer plasma or LCD sets so if you live in a cardboard box it may take up a bit more room.
Common Problems/Fixes
Common Problem #1 - Convergence: One the most common problems that you will run into eventually is a convergence failure. This is when the TV colors do not align anymore and the TV will look 3D, warped or distorted. This is a very common problem and a fairly simple DIY fix. Parts to repair this can be found over the internet from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Below are a few photos of a typical convergence problem and a link to a video on YouTube with more details.
utube.png You-Tube video "9oI1Nzq7CR8" placeholder (do not delete) utube.png

Notice how the image looks 3D...this is a classic example of a convergence failure...it may also look warped or have a wave look. But the wave will not fluctuate.

Common Problem #2 - Dull or Dark Video
The second most common problem we see on projection TV sets is whats known as the dull video issue. This is commonly caused by discolored cooling fluid in the lenses. Over many years - usually around 5-7 years - the fluid will discolor and cause the video to wash out or look dull. Changing the CRT fluid out every 7-10 years will restore the image clarity back to factory new conditions. You will actually be amazed at how sharp and clear the video looks once a fluid repair has been done.
Here is a before and after photo notice how it looks washed out. In some cases the images will look like they have halos around them or the screen will have a reddish tint. Bottom line - if your projection TV has never had the lens fluid replaced the video is not as sharp as it can be. You can get fluid kits from the same sites mentioned above. Doing this repair yourself or through a shop will make the video look amazing.

Common Problem #3 - Dead set with no videoIn these cases there can be more than one common issue depending on the TV brand and model. But to make things simple if the TV has no audio or video and its making a constant chirping sound the issue is caused by a short in the convergence. The fix is to do a convergence repair. If however its not chirping constantly it can be one of many issue from failed capacitors, diodes, flybacks, etc.

Dark picture..not bright picture


The whole point of a webcam is to be able to see the person you are speaking with, and let them see you. When the image broadcasted by your camera is too dark, the person on the viewing end won't see anything but shadows and dark shapes. Learn how to brighten your webcam image so the people you chat with can see you.

Place lamps behind and to the side of the webcam. This casts a light on your face, but the lamps will not wash out the image because they are behind the camera. Turn off lamps that are behind you. You have trouble seeing things when you are looking in the direction of the sun or a light bulb. Your webcam has the same problems. Don't make it stare at a bright light. Open up a white screen on your computer to brighten your face. The white screen will create the brightest possible light from you computer screen and help lighten your webcam image. This option is best when lamps are not available. Open up an empty tab in your Internet browser, or a blank Notepad document, and expand it to the full of your screen. Adjust your webcam settings. The settings available to you will depend on your webcam, but many of them offer a "Brightness" setting that you can increase to lighten your webcam. Open the program that came with your webcam, then look for a "Settings" or "Options" menu. Increase the "Brightness" setting until it has lightened your webcam enough.

Hi. I have a Samsung DLP that I purchased about 7 years ago. Over the last week when watching HDTV channels ( live or PVR) some faces of people are showing a green line on the left side and then a red line...


Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

My Phaser 6120 leaves light lines across the face


Lift out imaging unit and look down and back toward you, may need flash light, and you will see a 5" x 1/2" piece of glass. Carefully wipe it with soft cloth. Toner gets on this glass and creates the streaks. Often means a bad toner cartridge is leaking toner. Ron
