Question about Logitech QuickCam Fusion Webcam

3 Answers

Blurry and dark picture

My Logitech Fusion worked perfectly with good light, color and picture resolution. Recently, I had to replace my monitor, and now I only get low resolution and very dark picture. Other than buying a new monitor, I made no changes to the cam or settings, so I'm stumped. My system is Win XP and I use MSN as well as other flashplayer 9 based video chatrooms.

    hmm..well..that is most assuredly a driver compatibility issue..i recommend going to www.logitech.com and simply re installing the drivers..can not hurt..

The overall picture quality with the new monitor is awsome. It only the little window generated by the webcam that I saw a sudden drop in quality. I'll try re-installing the cam drivers and also look at whatever it is on that disk that came with the new monitor. I thought as long as the overall picture was good, there was no need to tweek with the monitor settings....

Here's a thought.... When I got the new monitor, all I did was plug it onto the cords that were left where the old one was. I went from a Viewsonic to a Samsung. There was a driver disk of some sort come with the new monitor, but I didnt think it was important. Is there any reason to belive that failure to install whatever is on that disk could be responsible for the sudden drop in my cam's performance?

Is the issue occuring only with the webcam, or is the picture quality of the new monitor bad in general? I would suggest checking the monitor properties via control panel. You can also try reinstalling the webcam drivers. Try that first and let me know how it goes..

check if the problem looks zig zag looking or it its not present in the PIP window. If so this may be an issue with the hypermodule - you can google TV repair Kits to find parts.

Everytime i put a picture for the background on the desktop it doesnt come out clear its all fuzzy/blurry anyone know what's happenin?


It's because your resolution(size) of your desktop is larger than the resolution(size) of the picture. If for example you are running a resolution of 1280x1024 then a picture with the dimentions of 1280x1024 would fit perfectly and not be stretched. See my tip on setting the desktop background here for further details: http://www.fixya.com/support/r6775332-change_desktop_background_image

If you want a smaller image to be centered and not stretched then right click on your desktop and go to Properties. Then click on the Desktop tab. To the middle right there is a heading that says Position. Click the little selection to Center. This will center a smaller image instead of making it all blurry and stretched.

The resolution is very dark and not clear


You should first try improving the lighting on your face, and be sure to avoid all light from behind you (close a curtain if necessary). Good lighting improves both color and resolution. The article How To Improve Your Webcam Video Quality provides lots of other free tips.

I RECENTLY STARTED USING BENQ MONITOR & NOW I HAVE IRRITATION ON MY EYES. WILL THERE BE ANY RADIATION FROM BENQ MONITORS


There's practically no radiation from LCD monitors, especially compared to older CRT monitors, which radiated several sorts of electromagnetic waves.

Is the picture on your monitor crisp, with good focus? If the letters and shapes are blurry, it may mean that you are using a different screen resolution than the native resolution of your LCD.
If your monitor type is FP731, then it's native resolution is 1280x1024 and this is what should be set in the Display Properties under Settings tab (in Windows). If it's a different model, you can search for it's specs on the web to see what is it's native (a.k.a. optimum) resolution.

Please rate and possibly leave a testimonial if helped.

QuickCam fusion webcam doesn't take pics of a higer resolution than 960x720


Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Sounds like a piture tube or internal video driver in your monitor. You probably lost the green channel. If the monitor is dated I would replace it.
