Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 Webcam

1 Answer

Webcam just shows black

I have a LifeCam VX-6000 webcam attached to my Toshiba Satellite A70 laptop running XP Home SP2. This camera works fine on a desktop, so I know it is okay. When I look at the video or take snapshots in the LifeCam software, or under My Computer in Explorer, all I get is black. Trying it in WLM just seems to hang my system entirely.

I have upgraded the drivers for the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 video card to the latest Catlyst version (1.2.2314.20337), and am using LifeCam 2.04 software. I have previously tried earlier versions, with the same results. Going through the Audio and Video Setup in LifeCam, there are no problems detected, but there is no video there either.

I have tried lowering the bit depth of my display from 32 to 16, I've tried turning hardware acceleration off, and a couple other random things I saw suggested on other sites, without success.

AMCap v9.20 AMCap is a small yet fully functional video capture application compatible with Microsoft DirectShow. It is based on the sample AMCap from the Microsoft DirectX 9 SDK. AMCap supports still captures to BMP, JPEG and PNG formats and it remembers your Video Input, Video Standard and Video size settings from previous session. It has some nice features like multimonitoring support, zooming, aspect ratio and deinterlacing features.

AMCap is a small and effictive piece of software and definitely worth trying. Hope this will help. Bud

You can download the driver here :- http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/236296/microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-vx-1000-vx-3000-vx-6000-driver-1.21-windows-xp-free-download.html
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.

Uninstall the Microsoft LifeCam and disconnect your camera.
Go to this site: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/435/241&cl=us,en

Download the software for the QuickCam Ultra Vision 5. Save to your hard disk and then run the program.
Reinstall the LifeCam software and then plug in the camera. LifeCam will use the Logitech Drivers and your camera should work fine.
