Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000

Hi,
The issue I'm having with my Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 is the person I'm calling cannot see me but I can see them. They can hear me just fine but the little screen on the bottom left of their computer is black.I've tried everything and still cannot get it to work. When I turn the webcam on, it seems to work just fine. I can see myself and the video is activated but my caller cannot see me. What can the problem be?

Thanks a million for your help.

Nancy

    Hi,

    I have the same problem, but one more details, a caller could not connect to me by microsoft messanger (he is using Yahoo messenger), so I installed Yahoo messanger which I could talk to them, but an issue is I can see their webcam, but they can not see mine.

    When I clicked to "View my Webcam", a notice appeared that I do not have webcam connection", eventhough I opened both of messengers Microsoft, and Yahoo as the same time.

    Thank you so much for telling me how to fix that problem.

Normal 0 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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.

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

Am using microsoft lifecam vx-1000 when i try do a video call


Do they have a webcam? They need to config their webcam.

After that, it could be your video card that is giving you the trouble if they have a webcam and its config. Try updating your graphic card to the most current and see if that helps.

Microsoft lifecam VX-1000 picks up buzzing noise


Try using a headset and the buzzing should go away. If you are hearing them through your speakers then the mike could be giving you feedback. Also try turning down the volume a bit and see how that works.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
