The camera on the C7 series is a webcam, and it is located facing the computer operator above the center of the display screen. It is designed for video chatting, not taking pictures. First of all, it is difficult to take pictures of anything besides you at the keyboard and the room behind you with this configuration. In addition, the resolution of the webcam is not very high, so pictures are not usually the quality you might want to share. To get still photos, you need to use an app that provides for 'capture'. These are usually video chat apps like Skype that permit you to click on a button and make a webcam capture from the video screen while you are chatting with someone. Look at the installed apps and try to find the video chat app that you have installed. Look through the help for that app to see how to do a webcam capture. Check the Chrome store for webcam apps also.
go in to your pictures folder and move all of the pictures to a new folder, for some reason the acer camera uses a numbering scheme for date, time, and picture taken, then for what ever reason throws an error and keeps the camera from working, move the pictures into your "my documents" folder under a new folder and re-install the camera software, it should be operable then
webcam commonly use to take a picture..just open the webcam application from your desktop and capture your picture or video. webcam also use for chatting such as in yahoo or msn..just try it..it will be fun

As you can see this application enables you to utilize your Web Camera for a wide variety of picture and video functionality.
In order to chat with someone, you may please use any web based chat and IM utilities (Eg. Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger, Skype etc.)
Use the software you have loaded but try operating in Compatibility Mode
Right click on the webcam icon on your desktop or the webcam file from 'All Programs' - select 'Properties' Select the 'Compatibility' tab Select 'Compatibility Mode' Use the dropbox to show the OS Click OK Restart your computer
This is sometimes what happens when you have the Logitech camera software open at the same time you have your chat software open. I'm guessing that you are trying to chat using Yahoo Messenger or something like that. If you turn off your Logitech camera software, it should work within Yahoo or other software. The problem is that your camera cannot display two video chat windows--only one at a time and most people dont' know that and leave the Logitech software running in the background which prevents the camera from showing a picture to others. If this is not the problem, check the camera on another computer to ensure it works fine with the same software when chatting to someone. If it works on the other computer perfectly, then go to your "hardware acceleration" and move the slider all the way to the left. This will fix the problem quite possibly. If you don't know where that is, just type it into your Windows help and it will show you.
It sounds like your webcam software is hanging on to a program somewhere, and the chat program thinks its already in use. This is unusual, insomuch that the webcam continues to transmit - almost as if its being forced by another program. I always disconnect and re-connect the webcam to reboot it before going into chat, but its never had the light on. Have a good scan of your programs to ensure you have no redundant webcam software creating conflicts. I would suggest you uninstall the software - disconnect the webcam and install new software
You can use a chat program to use the webcam and show your webcam pictures to others. If you want to record video with your webcam, have a look here: http://www.pcauthorities.com/multimedia/record-video-with-your-webcam
just checking, but did you use ichat? ichat is the chat client for AIM on a mac. they show icons next to the people that you can audio or video chat with. it shows a video camera next to those who you can mutually video chat with. if you click the icon, it makes a video chat. if you were looking to use a service other than AIM, i suggest meebo.com. you just hit the webcam icon once chatting with someone and you are ready to go (assuming you have the isight webcam in your macbook).
hope this helps ;-)
