The camera on my laptop, model MT616 does not work anymore. If I click on the camera button it does nothing. It was purchased 12/11/2007 so I hope it's under warranty. Connie Wheelock 3395 mohawk st sauquoit ny 13456 Thanks!

Connie,

Get ahold of Gateway **NOW**, in case your warranty is about to run out.
http://www.gateway.com/about/legal/warranty.php?cm_ven=eSupport&cm_cat=CservFAQ&cm_pla=&cm_ite=WarrantyInfo

They may be able to help you. Live support online has been rather helpful for me, and the wait times haven't been too bad. If that doesn't get you anywhere ...

I can't find your laptop in Gateway's database. Try poking around here, either with your serial number (this page) or by clicking the "Browse all downloads" tab and typing in your model number, which may be missing a number.
http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp
If you're browsing, hit "Display results" at the bottom before you enter anything in for question 4.

There should be some Webcam software, including a newer version of the drivers and a firmware update- - which will actually make the camera itself work differently.

Also look to see if there's any software from Gateway itself. Sometimes manufacturers build their own software to set up one button to enter a power management screen, one button to enter a setup screen, one button to open e-mail, etc. There may be similar controlling software for your camera.

Go to control panel-device admin-video/camera devices.
If no camera listed, then the camera is not working anymore, needs replacing, if listed but with an exclamation sign, try updating the cam driver.

Hope this helps.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

on most HP laptops there is a little notch on the power panel on the right hand side (panel directly below your screen) you will need a small flat head screwdriver to pry it open, on some models it is easier to pry it up where the screen hinges are, after you get it open you should be able to access your power button to see if it has "sunk" into its place on the panel, as for raising it back up i dont suggest you try, try putting something behind the button on the panel you just removed like a small piece of paper or what ever you find, just nothing metal as this might cause a short, hope this helps

How to work laptop webcam


Dear rodneypinnoc,
If the webcam designed as integrated with your laptop (built-in) then ou have to run the driver CD that come with your laptop on purchased, if it done, just press the 'Fn' button together with the related F button with the camera icon on it (try to figure F1-F12 on your keyboard). OR..
If your webcam connected by USB port, run the driver CD that come with your purchase or just plug it then the windows will support the driver for camera itself. Or try to go to 'My Computer' the doble-click the USB camera Icon.

GoodLuck!
Best Regards,

Click is not working (like if I click on the OK button below - I have to click from the laptop not the mouse.


Have recently experienced my micky doing sim, still showing led but nothing, believe it or not the batteries were the problem, rundown but not total.

Replace batts.

If that fails and your equiopt is recently purchased, back to supplier with prove of purchase.!

Hopefully rundown batts. Goodluck!

My flash isn't working anymore!! (fz50)


Find the setting for "conversion lens" in the menu, or tools menu.
Turn it off.

Turning the "conversion lens" on blocks all flash function.

The conversion lens is a extra lens that you can purchase to screw onto the front of the main camera lens for extra zoom or wide shots but it blocks the flash, so your only meant to turn it on when you have one fitted.

Installation Problem


Since the software is not running automatically, you'll need to follow these instructions.

Step 1 - Click the start button (round button with windows logo in lower left corner of your screen)

Step 2 - Click "Computer"

Step 3 - Double click "DVD" drive. Mine is the letter "E:", but yours may be different?

The software should now start, so choose "run" or "start". Hope this helps you Cpmirar.

Menu Problem


Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.

Hope this helps!
