  • laslototh Dec 19, 2008

    Same problem. I did not ask for Auto-Recharge and now I am unable to remove it .It looks like I can only de-activate it monthly. Is that sneaky or what?

    Skype has no live customer support either.

    same problem. I do not understand why they do like this.

  • NYC223 Jan 13, 2009

    I am having the same problem. I never authorized auto-recharge on skype, yet they continue to charge my credit card. I even removed my credit card details from my account page so this couldn't happen, yet they somehow remain saved I was charged again. I cannot find anywhere on the website to cancel auto recharge.

    Same problem, didn't ask for auto-recharge and cannot turn it off, although they promise in their help files that you can.

I have spent the whole afternoon trying to get out of the clutches of Skype. Originally all I wanted to do was change my skypename for security reasons but they wouldn't let me do it. Then I wanted to Cancel my account and they wouldn't let me do it. Then I decided to change all my details to fictitious ones so that anyone checking their directory would be foxed and then I cleaned Skype from my machine, cleansed the cookies and everything else related to Skype. Just in order to sign on again and make a new Skypename but when I reinstalled everything and it logged on to Skype it found me and put my unwanted Skypename back on the account! Have deleted everything again and will use Yahoo instead! Good job I had not trusted them with my credit card as some of you have. It may take you YEARS to sort this.

Reboot and then shutdown Skype, Google Chat or other auto-starting programs which might access the
camera. See if you can start it manually then. If so there often are setting/properties to change the
orientation or flip. There should be a camera control program accessible from your Start Menu. If you
can't access the camera manually then check with Acer Support and their on-line documentation and
drivers.

Check with Acer Support - they might answer an email about how to start the camera without charge.

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

http://www.testmycam.com/

working OK ?

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

My son's credit card is being charged for skype and he never signed up for it, so he has no username or password. How do we cancel it?


If he never signed up but his credit card is being charged then I would contact the bank and cancel the card immediately. Your Son is most likely a victim of identity theft.

You cannot cancel the account since it isn't actually his. You can report it to skype but I don't know what they will do. Apparently they are having real problems with this kind of thing.

Good luck.

Dear Digjay,

Please Rate this solution.

for using webcam in yahoo messenger,all you have to do is go to the yahoo messenger settings and set the camera. On the bottom of my messenger there is a camera button that turns the cam on.

for installing skype


Downloading and Installing Skype Step1 Go to the Skype Web site (see the Resources section below for links to download Skype for Windows, Mac, and Linux users) and download the SkypeSetup.exe executable. (The executable gets downloaded under the Program Files folder under a directory called Skype that gets automatically created. A Skype Setup icon is also automatically seen on your desktop.) Step2 Click on the SkypeSetup icon that is on your desktop. A Skype Setup wizard then appears. You will get a warning window asking if you want to Run or Save this file, SkypeSetup.exe. Click Run. Note: Another confirmaton message may come up asking if you are sure you want to Run this software. Click "Run" again. Step3 Follow the instructions on the Skype Setup Wizard to complete the installation of the Skype software. At the end of the installation you will be asked to setup a Skype account. Step4 A Skype window appears and if you have never used Skype before you have the option of creating a Skype account. A link is seen on that window mentioning the following: "Don't have a Skype name?" Click on this link and it opens up another "Skype - Create a New Account" window where you have to type in your Full Name and then you have to type in a "Skype Name" and a Skype "Password" and "Repeat Password" in the respective fields on that window. Note: Jot down this Skype Name and Skype Password as you will need it everytime you open the Skype application. Step5 Click on the "Sign in" button. Note: After having created this new Skype Name account for the first time, the next time you open Skype again, your Skype name will automatically appear in the Skype name field. All you need to do is to type in your Skype password and click the "Sign in" button. Step6 Follow the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide to "Add a Contact" using the "Add Contact" button, to test your headset and microphone using the "Skype Test Call Feature," to set up a Conference Call with a business colleague or friend, and to explore all the other features in Skype. Step7 Once you have installed the Skype software, there are 2 ways by which you can open the Skype software application. Click on the Skype icon on your desktop Or Double click on the "x" icon in your desktop's system tray to start Skype at any time. Note: Once the Skype window comes up, the "x" checkmark then changes to a green checkmark to indicate that the Skype application is currently running on your computer. It changes back to an "x" mark when you have "Signed out" of Skype and Skype is no longer running on your computer.
