Update your skype to the latest version, direct x (Windows update) andvideo card drivers from your manufacturer (go to manufactureres site;they'll lead you through it)

start with your webcam off, Go toTools, options, video settings. Click on Enable Skype video and Startmy video when Skype turns on. Then select "default video device".

scan your computer and see if there's any virus on it

or check for trojan or malwares, or spyware
http://www.safer-networking.org/

see if your computer and os can satisfy the requirements of skype:

  • System requirements
  • PC running Windows 2000, XP or Vista. (Windows 2000 users require DirectX 9.0 for video calls).
  • Internet connection – broadband is best (GPRS is not supported for voice calls).
  • Speakers and microphone – built-in or separate.
  • For voice and video calls we recommend a computer with at least a 1GHz processor, 256 MB RAM and of course a webcam.
  • ForHigh Quality Video calls you will need a highquality video webcam andsoftware, a dual-core processor computer and afast broadbandconnection (384 kbps).

Disconnects


Make sure all connections are good, check line cord and make sure the little clips are still there, could be loose connection. And if battery's are old. You have to build a life to the battery's, if you keep putting it back on charge all the time your battery life span will be shorter. You build the life of the battery, by the way you charge them, if you only let it discharge for 5 min. and keep putting it back on charge the it will start cutting off after 5 min.

When calling with video It keeps disconnecting about every five mins. It takes many redials to reconnect..I have a Microsoft LifeCam Cinema Webcam, with current download and skype version 5.5.0.114


This sounds like you have a slow internet connection. It should have nothing to do with the camera. Find out if your service provider is having network problems.

15 min energizer charger cuts off after 5 seconds


Plug it into mains without battery.
Put the battery(s) into place. If batteries OK (but need charging) it will begin charging. If batteries very low it will cut off. If batteries charged it will charge only 1 - 10s.

How can i instal skype to my psp?


The first step in the process involves configuring the Internet connection, which you should have already done if you've ever taken the PSP online to play games or browse the web. If you’re making a call from a public Wi-Fi hotspot, you might have to fire up the PSP Internet browser to accept the hotspot’s terms of service before getting online.
You’ll need to update your PSP’s firmware to enable Skype functionality if you bought your PSP-2000 close to launch. You can find the update on Sony’s PSP support page and full instructions on how to properly update the device. After installing the system update, you’ll find a new Skype selection under the Network in the XMB menu, nestled between the LocationFree Player and Remote Play.
The Skype program will give you the option of using an existing Skype account, or creating a new account directly from the PSP. Making a Skype account couldn’t be easier. Enter your email address and the desired login and password, and you’re on your way. Once the account is created, you can use either your PSP or a PC to hop over to the Skype site to purchase Skype credits using either PayPal or a credit card. You need Skype credits if you want to call cell phones or regular land lines using your Skype account.

Profile 1 Profile 2 Profile 3 Profile 4 Profile 5 The Skype menu has five main sections: My Profile, Contacts, History, Dial, and Tools. The Profile section lets you adjust personal information. From here, you can change your status, icon, and mood message. Other profile settings let you set your location, email address, and contact numbers.
contacts.jpg
Contacts 1 Contacts 2 Contacts 3 Contacts 4 Contacts 5 The Contacts page, as the name suggests, displays your contact list. From here you can choose contacts to call, but you'll be limited to audio chats only. You won't have the ability to launch video chats—Skype didn’t recognize the PSP camera attachment we imported from Japan. Voice quality will vary with your internet connection, but even with spotty service the connection is more than usable. Our PC friends did have to update their Skype program to the latest version to stop numerous error screens from popping up during our calls.
history.jpg
History 1 History 2 The History icon keeps track of all incoming and outgoing calls and records how long you were in the chat for. It's also a quick way to go back and redial recent calls.
dial.jpg
Dial 1 Dial 2 Dial 3 The Dial feature lets you call outside phone numbers with the PSP. You will of course have to pay real money for this feature to work. We made a few calls using the service and it functioned as advertised, and voice clarity on both ends was more than passable. We did notice some lag, but nothing severe enough to disrupt the conversation.
tools.jpg
Tools 1 Tools 2 Tools 3 Tools 4 Tools 5 Tools 6 The Tools menu lets you jump to the Skype page to purchase more air time, change default sounds, troubleshoot network related port settings, manage blocked users, and tweak a few other minor settings.
Overall, we found Skype on the PSP to be easy to use and great for voice chats. We don't miss the text chat interface, as the PSP's text input mechanism doesn’t make for fast messaging. We’re not really sure how often you’ll actually use Skype on the PSP, but you’ll be glad to have it if you ever find yourself without a landline and a cell phone, but happen to be near an open Wi-Fi connection. Thats about it! =)

Rate please!

Sincerely

To change the time, go to extension 10, while keeping the handset on hook, push intercom, then dial # 6 5 2, enter the new time ie. 102510 (hour, min, seconds), then push the redial key to save. That should do it. to set the day use the intercom # 653 code (1=Sun, 2=Mon, ect). To change the date use the intercom # 651 code (ie. 080510). If that does not do it, you may have a different model key service unit, and you will need to notate which system your using.

Tv cuts off and on.


Sounds like a bad SSB(small signal board) module. Better take it to a RCA AUTHORIZED service center.
