You need to check your video settings in Yahoo Messenger. If you look at the video settings in MSN you should see your webcam listed as the active device. Now check in YM, is the camera listed? If not can you select it from a drop-down?

Black screen on webcam


Hi!

Have you already tried sliding the front cover? I have an a4tech cam also but the model is different. For it to work, I need to slide down the cover so that the camera itself would be revealed.

the camera seemed not been properly configured for the chat program you are using. Please make sure that the webcam have been configured properly with your chat program like YM. Also check if the camera works locally, meaning, if it captures video while not in chat rooms

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Logitech QuickCam E3500 to use with Yahoo Messenger


  • Is there enough light in the room? Flip a switch to light up the room a bit more.
  • Is your camera functioning properly? Try your camera alone; separate from Yahoo! Messenger, using the manufacturer's software that came with the camera.
  • Yahoo! Messenger might have the wrong camera selected. Follow the steps below to change your camera source.
  1. Click "Messenger"
  2. Click "My Webcam.
  3. Click "Messenger" again.
  4. Select "Preferences."
  5. Click "Webcam."
  6. Click "Camera Source."
  7. Click the pull-down menu and select the camera you want to use.
  8. Click "OK."
If that doesn't work, your friend might have one of the same problems with the camera on his or her end. They should try the same steps to see if that helps.
Hopefully the info here will help get things running smoothly!

First of all, have you verified you are using latest version of MSN messenger. If so and the problem still exists, give one of the other instant messengers a try, say like YM or AIM or any number of others.
What exactly do you mean by ' seems to work '?? Can you see yourself in the cam using whatever software other then MSN that you may have on your computer.
