Normally, If you are running Windows XP, the Built-In Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) maybe enable without your knowledge. This is the default setting of Windows to protect your PC from hacking. However, of course, this default setting may block you from running some applications you might need to use like Viewing WebCam in Yahoo! Messenger. Anyway, there is always a way to solve the problem.

Below are the steps to enable you to veiw WebCam by instructing you to ensure that the correct ports are opened.

1. Click Start, Settings, and select Control Panel.
2. Double click on the Network Connections icon.
3. Right click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet, and then click on Properties.
4. On the Advanced tab, uncheck the box Protect my computer… if you would like to disable the firewall. If you like to only open the webcam ports, check the box and continue with the remaining steps.
5. Click the Settings button.
6. Click the Add button.
7. Under Description… fill in Yahoo! Webcam. Under Name or IP… fill in 127.0.0.1. Under both External Port and Internal Port fill in 5100. Check the button TCP.
8. Click OK to close all opened dialog boxes.
Work done! I guess now You can view webcam in Yahoo! Messenger

That will resolve the issue.

However, if the issue persists, you can try below thing. By disabeling and enabling the webcam feature.



Disabling Webcam application:
Disabling Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service will disable the webcam.

1. Click Start, and select Run.
2. In the Open box, type SERVICES.MSC
3. Press Enter on the keyboard. Services box will pop up.
4. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. 5. Right-click "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and select Properties.
6. In the General tab, under Service status, click the "Stop" button.
7. Click Apply and OK.
8. Restart the notebook. This will disable the webcam on the notebook

Enabling the web cam application :

1. Click Start, and select Run.
2. In the Open box, type SERVICES.MSC
3. Press Enter on the keyboard. Services box will pop up.
4. In the Services window, scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. 5. Right-click "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" and select Properties.
6. In the General tab, under Service status, click the "Start" button.
7. Click Apply and OK.
8. Restart the notebook. This will enable the webcam on the notebook.

That will resolve the issue.

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

I can receive a web cam picture from other people but can't send


Hi, My Name is Henry. I am one of the technicians here.

The only solution to this problem is to make your webcam live for others to see you. If that is not done then you will be seeing only yourself.

Another problem is your internet speed. If your speed is very slow then you may see people but people may not be able to see you.

if these dont work, try reinstalling your yahoo messenger.

i hope this helps.

Please do not forget to rate my solutions to you.

Henry

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.

Inverted picture on yahoo messenger


it's most likely upside down, or the settings are mirror imaged

Camera


Yahoo! Messenger > Yahoo! Messenger Help > Messenger 8 > Webcam How do I correct an upside-down image? That’s no fun. The image in your Webcam Uploader window might be inverted because of your camera setting.

To change the setting:

Click Messenger and select "My Webcam."

In the window that opens, click the "File" menu,

select "Preferences," and choose "Webcam".
Click the "Camera Settings" button.

There is usually a checkbox for "Invert Image" or "Mirror Vertical."

Un-check this box if one exists.

If you can't find this checkbox, try searching the other tabs.
