After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Where do i plug in my webcam on my latitude d620


You would plug it into one of the 4 usb ports on your D620. I suggest you buy one of Microsoft's Life Cam's from somewhere like Walmart for less than $35 because they have Auto Focus built in.

Below is a link to one.

How can I mirror the image displayed by my Microsoft Live Cinema webcam. Also, how can I flip it upside down?


Presently, it is not possible to mirror the image in the Lifecam software for this camera (v3.6). Despite many pleas to Microsoft the problem remains unresolved. I suggest filing a complaint with Microsoft customer support, requesting that this feature be added in a later release.
