If the camera is plugged in and installed correctly then you should be able to open up a web cam program like skype, gmail or messenger and test out the camera, as well as adjust the camera's settings.
If the camera lens does not have auto focus, see if you can move the camera lens around in both directions. Some cameras have this for manual focusing. If you cannot access the camera lens then it SHOULD have an auto focus feature.
Also, play around with the camera settings (brightness, focus, zoom, sharpness) to find the best combination of setting for your environment.
Older cameras dont have very good resolutions so don't expect a high quality image or frame rate.
If you go to the front of the webcam, their is the camera surrounded by a dial. Turn the dial until the picture comes in clearly, and when you get it perfect, don't touch it. Just leave it the way it is and your all set. Hope this Helped -CA
1) You try reducing your webcam settings to high or low, to see the best possible settings to enable better quality images. (or)
2)This may sound a bit crazy, but try to rotate the lens (the white part around the lens). Your camera has a manual focus, so you have to twist it until you get a clear picture. I have a similar one, so what I do is I point it at a book and rotate until I can read the book clearly on the monitor. Alternately, you can buy a more expensive camera with auto focus. Hope you understand. 3)Thanks for using fixya..
It sounds like the auto focus isn't properly focusing on you. Try manually turning the ring on the front of the webcam lens to manually focus it. Also try the other tips in the article Improve Your Webcam Video Quality.
Most webcams focus either manually or by software The manual focus is a ring around the lens that you can rotate to sharpen the picture. The software settings on the auto focus allow you to zoom in and out to get the best image in relation to the distance of the subject to the webcam
There is a focus ring around the lens of the WEB cam turn this ring until your image becomes clear, just like a camera focus knob.
Click on the WEB cam software, you will be able to go into an options or configuration, click on video setting, you should see an image of yourself, adjust the focus until the image is clear.
To clear the picture's focus, you should be able to turn the ring on the front of the camera. Did your computer recognize the device when you plugged it in and install all necessary drivers? If you're trying to use it with skype, try to use it just with windows XP and see if there's still a problem. If not then it's skype, and not the camera. Also in the settings of the camera program you can probably adjust the brightness. Try setting it to the highest setting.
