2 Answers

I can see and hear but I cannot be seen though web cam is on

Daughter calls me
I accept
I can see her and we chat, plus she sends pictures of the granchild
She can hear me but cannot see me
Am using Yahoo Messenger that sends message that web cam is
not connected...but it is! as I can see myself.
We unplug, reconnect and fiddle around but no success.
Seems that I made a bad purchase this month of December 2008
Any possible solution? Scrap? Buy another web cam? Live with it?

Try going into Yahoo messenger and when signed in go to actions and scroll down to "Invite to view my webcam" click it it should come up with a setup screen for your web cam.
Or alternatively
Click on the messenger button scroll down to preferences.and open it then go to the webcam setup and follow instructions

Can't make a video E-mail call/web chat


Gmail helps you stay in touch in a variety of ways. Its offerings range from its basic function email to more advanced features such as phone calls and video chatting. To send an email or chat via text on Gmail, you don't need to do anything more than create an account. Before you can start video chatting with your Gmail contacts, however, you must install the required software.

Visit the Google Voice installation page (link below). http://www.google.com/chat/video Click the blue "Install voice and video chat" button. When the process is complete, you see a page congratulating you on installing Google voice and video chat. Click the "Gmail" link on this page to go to your Gmail account. Hover your mouse over an online Gmail contact in your contact list. Click "Chat" in the list that appears. This opens a chat with the contact in question in the lower right corner of your Gmail screen. Click the small video camera icon within the chat window to initiate a video chat. Before the chat begins, your contact must accept the video call. You and the person you're calling must have webcams. Most modern laptops come with built-in webcams, and peripheral webcams are available at computer stores.

How do i use my web cam on msn on my aspire one netbook?


Here are the steps to use web cam on MSM:-
Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture.
Click the "Webcam" icon.
Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer.

Show or Hide Your Webcam
Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Good luck, do rate the solution if got help

I can't get my web cam picture and my daughters to be on the screen at the same time. what do I doI have the web cam turned on. I can see my face. Then I signed on to AOL IM and got my daughter on-line...


You need to send your video to her also, meaning you need to activate your camera from your side. This is how you do it:

1. Double-click a buddy on your Buddy List window.
2. In the instant message (IM) window, below the buddy icon, click the camera ( aim7_im_wndw_cmra_icn.gif ) icon, and then click Start a Video IM
3. Your buddy will now receive a Video invitation. Once he or she accepts your invitation, the Video window will pop up. You can now begin talking.

Also, you can set AIM to automatically accept all Video invitations from your buddies. To do that, at the top of the Buddy List, click Menu, and then click Settings. Click to select the Enhanced IM tab, select the box next to Video, and then click Save.

Hope this helps!

My grand daughter has an ACER one NOTEBOOK S/N:LUS670D123938001bc1601. I WAS TOLD SHE COULD USE THE WEB CAM BUT SHE DOES NOT HAVE INSTRUCTION MANUAL. COULD YOU HELP US? THANK YOU,


click the start menu button, then click programs, look for a program on your computer called "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" this is the software used to take pictures and video with the webcam on your Aspire One. Other programs such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger, and websites like Facebook can automatically detect your webcam and let you use it for things like video chat, and taking profile pictures.
hope this helps.

I don't really know how to use it. It was a gift from my daughter after my hard drive crashed.


Well, it's very easy for you to use a web camera. First you have to decide how do you want to use it.. means you can use it for video chatting through Paltalk, Yahoo messenger, MSN messenger, Skype etc. For video chat you will need to install it in your PC.

To install first connect the web cam with PC. Insert the installation CD in CD/DVD-ROM, run Setup.exe and install it. Once setup is successfully completed you may need to restart the PC.

Now open and sign in your chat client (MSN messenger, Yahoo messenger, Gtalk messenger, AOL etc.) For example: If you want to start share your web cam in Yahoo messenger, just Login with your ID and password....click on Messenger choose option My Webcam.One warning message will appear...click OK....your webcam will start....Now if you want to invite someone to view your webcam, simply click on his/her ID and open IM window....click on Actions, choose More Actions from down of the list....and click on Invite to view my webcam....if he/she accepts your invitation...he/she will able to see you....again if you want to see someone who having Webcam....open the IM window by clicking his/her ID.... follow option Actions > More Actions and click on View webcam....yahoo will send the request to him/her...if he/she accept your request....you will able to see him/her....

For MSN messenger....sign in to your messenger and click on Actions and from list choose option Video and click on Show my webcam to view your webcam to others from your contact list.....or click on Start a video call to start video chat.....

To see others webcam click on View a contact's webcam....if the person accept your webcam....you will able to see his/her webcam....

Same to other chat client too...just little different in options....

I think you can get it easily...

For further help please be with us.

First thing you need to install AOL messenger so you can enjoy chatting with your friends while you chat with them. In the AOL messenger you can start your cam. There should be an icon of the software that runs your camera on your desktop. Use that to take pictures and save on a specified file location then after that enjoy sending e-mails or chat with your friends with your cam. Let me know if you have further questions.
