    try to look your camera device if its really connected on your computer. go to control panel>scanners and cameras> you should see the camera model icon from that window if its really installed correctly. try to look also the USB from your webcam and while you inserting it to your computer you should see pop up from the taskbar located at the bottom right indicating your webcam is connected.

Why does my webcam show a black screen?


Which version r u using? 8 or 9 beta?

1.for 9 beta:
*Can you see your cam clearly? I mean no black screen.
If your web-cam is having black screen, then you have to set it.
On main messenger screen:
click messenger
click connection
tick "connect directly to the internet"
click apply and ok.
Then open your cam and check if it working or not.
*Visit:

well..this problem occurs sometimes with yahoo messenger 10. so you need to know how can you sign in,
when you try to sign in on yahoo messenger 10, please go to messenger settings and then in the connection settings tab, please select your network type, i mean if your network connection is broadband, select broadband..if you are using dial up modem, select it or if you are using lan..select it...then try to login again..

i think your problem has been solved.

The web cam on yahoo keeps switching feeds from my friends to mine so wile it says i am viewing her cam its mine


I will suggest you to check it first to check it using different yahoo client like Yahelite, Yazak etc. these clients are more secure to use instead of yahoo messenger. or You can uninstall the existing yahoo messenger, then download and install latest version of Yahoo Messenger 10 Beta or Yahoo Messenger 9.0

Hope it will help....All the best

Install older version of yahoo messenger..
And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites).
The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail.
I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.)
yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail.
at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.
