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?

Acerorbicam not working on msn & google videochat ...


Hi Diana, Uninstall the cam & install it again. after that open my computer andopen the cam. If there your camera working properly then the camera & installation both are ok. After that try it in MSN & google video chat. Remember Msn always read inbuild camera for laptop. If its on in msn and same problem then there is some problem cames from MSN. For camera comfirmation you can login yahoo messenger and open the cam from there. IF you face same problem then the problem occur by internet connection. So you must check the internet connection after that all. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

I have a acer laptop with cams but cant see


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.

I am haveing a trouble with my web cam


If your web cam is working on the unit itself but fails to open on chats or messengers, do this:
1. Turn off UAC (user access controls), it should be on control panel, user accounts.
2.Test your webcam if it would work now on chats, if not, proceed
3. Download the latest chicony web cam software on support.toshiba.com (you must select your exact model)
4.After downloading, go into programs and features on control panel and uninstall the camera software
5. Install now the downloaded camera software
6.Test your cam, it should work now

Hope this helps...
