Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently bought a Microsoft LifeCam 1.4, duly downloaded the program onto my laptop and the first time I used it every worked perfectly. However next time the picture was perfect but there was no sound, so I took it back and got a new one. I was given a replacement and plugged it all in and still no joy. I have spent ages trying to work out why it doesnt work - I think its all down to the mute button, but unfortunately there is a drop down box which tells you to put the speaker on mute but not one to turn it back on....... HELP

    Thank you for getting back to me so promptly. In fact I checked the settings on the control panel - sounds and audio devices and the slider was high. I had a chat with a friend who suggested uninstalling and reinstalling which I have just done. I am now waiting for someone to come on line to have a chat with. I will get back to you if the problem has been resolved. Many thanks. Birdie

Hi birdie,

Uninstalling and reinstalling the camera software may fix this problem as the settings should revert to when they worked for you the first time ( also go in and delete any folders left by the software after you uninstall)
Also i would try to connect another microphone to see if there is any sound that way you can rule out the lifecam as being the problem and concentrate on the fact that its your sound settings that are creating the difficulty.

Try to check the settings for your windows sound by going to start menu>control panel>sounds and audio devices and making sure that no volume slider is down or that no mute button is checked.
Also after asking around i found that this is a common problem with the lifecam due to some pc's only having half duplex(to techie?) what that means is they can only have sound or voice but not both at the same time.

Hello.

If you have previously installed a Logitech Webcam, the solution is to:

Update the LifeCam drivers in Device Manager and download the most recent version of the LifeCam software.

If that is not the case, please provide your operating system.

Hope this helps.

Hello :

Before i start to give a solution i would like to tell you that rebooting system after any new installing or uninstalling of any software is very important .
For your Webcam , i recommend you to uninstall it's software completely and reboot your system . After that install it again and reboot your system again .
You have to do that while the Cam is connected to your computer .
After that , you need to set that software correctly before you start to run the Cam again . !
If that didn't help , then i recommend you to restore your system to the a previous point [time] when the cam was working perfectly .
If that didn't help also , then i advice you to get it back to the place where you bought it from . But don't forget to take the guarantee and the bill with you .

I hope that can help you .

rate if that was useful please !
