Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam

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

Rogers problems


This has become a growing problem:
  • As land lines have been reclaimed or replaced in the phone company networks;
  • As the growing older population has lost hearing sensitivity.
  • Because secondary carriers don't always receive the best or least crowded connectons (especially in case of residential versus business which pay more for service).
If you are getting static and cross talk (hearing radio or other people's converstations) notify the phone company and you will probably provided a new connection.

IF the problem is persistent without such interference, consider an amplified phone--some states (California for instance under Federal auspices) makes such equipment available free to hearing impaired. Also check the quality of your household wiring and connections.

Check with you neighbors--if they don't have the same problems, complain to the phone company. If they do, complain together.

Finally, some phones are simply too poor in quality to provide good sound. You might want to upgrade: either the phone set or its line or handset cord.

Poor quality sound - low volume on Netflix. Everything fine on regular TV programmes.


You have to go to the sound mixer on your PC and increase the volume on Internet Explorer, Microsoft Silverlight also.
To find the mixer try clicking on the speaker on the taskbar.

I am connecting an older receiver (amp) to my DVR


Did you try the DVR through the same input you're using for the DVD to see if it's related to the source or the input on the receiver? BTW: don't use the phono conenctors for anything but a turntable.

Little and poor quality sound from turntable


Turntables do not produce "line level" audio which is what is required for input into the AUX on the receiver. If you do not have a phono input on the receiver, you must purchase a phono pre-amp. These are readily available for about $20. This will boost the output of the turntable to line level so you can use the AUX input on your receiver. That will resolve the problem.

Poor Quality


If you can copy ok you have effectively ruled out your machine as you have used both the scanning and printing mechanism of the machine.

It will probably be the fax on the other end as if it sends a poor quality page that's all your machine can receive, a poor line can also cause problems if it is from multiple faxes. If so have your provider check the line (you probably hear static on the line).

Poor sound


You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input. The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack. I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you. http://www.phonopreamps.com/tc400pp.html
