Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

I bought a VX 5000 today at the store, and installed everything and the software that came with it "LifeCam" works just fine. It's supposed to be optimized for Windows Live Messenger, and thats my IMing software of choice - that's why I picked it up.  When I try to use it with Live Messenger, the video comes in just fine, but the audio doesn't. The microphone does not work at all, I've turned everything up.  I configured it with Live Messenger in the wizard, it showed it was working fine, but when I start up a video call, I get no audio.  I can neither hear the other person or talk into my own microphone.  Help?

    Hi I have a similar problem with the VX 5000. I can hear the other party but they cannot hear me. The microphone doesn't work even after I changed the setting under Control panel - sound and audio as described. I have also changed the setting on Live. When I test the microphone using the sound recorder, there's still no detection. Please help!

Microsoft lifecam vx-5000 problem with image


Normal 0 Probably has corrupt driver.
Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
