Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam

1 Answer

Other people can't see me and have poor sound quality

I just received a lifecam from my parents. I can see and hear them just fine, but they can't get any pic of me and the sound quality is poor. They know theirs works great with my brother so the problem must be on my end.

    I see other people and hear them clearly. They can't see me (just a black or grey square) and the audio is all broken up. I'm totally frustrated.

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

Picture quality terrible on Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam


You should be able to adjust the focus by adjusting the lens.The little housing where the lens is should be able spin a bit. If you gently spin it a bit, it should change the sharpness of the image on the screen.

I hope this help you.

Normal 0 If the people you are talking to have speakers they hear you and you will get feed back of your voice. Have them turn down the speaker level or better yet use a headset and this will no longer be a problem.

No, you don't need to do anything more. That should do it. Logitech also has a webcam with a built in mic that would work for you as well.
