How to remove auto brightness feature?


webcam displays colours b> Webcams are useful in both personal and business functions, from video chatting to video conference calls. When your webcam displays strange colors, it is usually due to a problem that is easily fixed even without advanced technical abilities. By trying at-home solutions before sending the computer or camera in for service, you can save time and money.

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 When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities.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. On a Mac, effects for the built-in iSight webcam can be changed in the Effects 1 and 2 menus in the Photo Booth application. Hope this helps.

The picture is a red color


A lot of these sets develop a problem like this--the set uses a small plastic block with 6 controls--three are focus and three are SCREENS--

most likely you just need to get at and turn the red screen control down just a little.

I can tell you how to do this from the front of the set--takes only a few minutes.

Hi and thank you for using fixya:
When your screen is red or any other color on the webcam screen that means the webcam is not install or the player is denying the access to the camera . Please re-install the drivers of the camera. Also make sure when you send the camera for others to see you if you see a warning screen letting you allow or decline the webcam click allow

HP internal webcam shows dark screen


Okay, the driver for the camera (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.

Do the following:

Press the windows key and R
Type in command
In the command prompt that comes up:
Type in cd C:\Windows\System32\
Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
Type in del hal.dll
Then restart your computer

What taskkill does is kill the webcam applications that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the webcam driver, and the problem will be fixed!
