Maybe you should unistall and reinstall the program with the disk that you was given whenever you got the webcam.

Let me know if this works :)

If you have the "exact" same cam as your brother, and also use the "exact" same programs as your brother, then their is no reason why your cam would not work as your brothers.
Did you download the plug & play option for the cam?
Do you use the "exact" same version of windows as your brother? (Win 98, XP, Vista)

Lighting
Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu.

My webcam is not showing the video effects. It displays the black and white and the effects like that but not the ones that can make your head bigger etc. I have tried lowering the resolution but it still...


I just got the same problem with mine in fact my webcam built into my asus G73 laptopp in my webam i am in color only when the laptop is tilted up and when i lower the screen i turn black and white. I called customer service and they are replacing it. the problem would most likely be a messed up ribbon cable for your webcam. i am actually taking it in to be looked at today.
