  • reignofcake Dec 31, 2008

    My computer does not recognize that I have a webcam or as it says "video device" connected, and it also does not run the driver CD that came with the webcam...I don't know if it's my computer or not, but it's been driving me insane.

  • dapimpsh1t Jan 20, 2009

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, and did all that fun stuff, the mic works, but the video impression 2 software, says cannot connect to video device

    So where do I find the solution on this site?

  • JonieSwift Jan 24, 2009

    i downloaded everything that the directions told me to for the gigaware.. it downloaded fine onto my desktop computer, but it refuses to, on my laptop (the one i use the most). When I plug in my webcam into the USB port it starts to go through the scan/download thing... when it's about to finish it says there's an error finding the cam and the info (or something) was bad.. I need help with this ASAP... or i'm contacting someone about this. I've been trying and failing over and over again. It's VERY frustrating. I'm begging for help. thank you

  • chronicsmoke Jan 25, 2009

    when i plug in the webcam it run to install screen and it does work try to start video feed and its a blank screen

  • dapimpsh1t May 11, 2010

    From simple trail and error, I've found that running World of Warcraft between sessions of using the camera will cause it to not be able to detect the video settings. It wasn't a matter of the software not being compatable in my case, as the software that came WITH the webcam (Video Impressions 2) wouldn't connect, however, restarting the computer did help.

Normal 0 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.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
C. Windows Live Messenger:
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

I NEED SONY BRAVIA T32 FULL MANUAL...how to conect to computer and camera


Hello there,

Here is the link to the full manual:
http://support.sony-asia.com.edgesuite.net/consumer/IM/4110401121.pdf

Before connecting your devices...
The signals that enter the TV and connected devices will need to be output in the correct format using the suitable connections. Below are the different types of video connectors. When connecting the TV, use the inputs that are available on your devices that provide the best video performance.
Video performance level Name Aspect Signal transmitted Separate audio connection required arrw.jpg HDMI cnn_hdmi.jpg Picture + Sound No DVI*1 cnn_dvi.jpg Picture Yes
l.jpg r.jpg
L-AUDIO-R Component video cnn_component.jpg Picture S-Video cnn_s_video.jpg Picture Composite video cnn_composite.jpg Picture RF/Coaxial cnn_coaxial.jpg Picture + Sound No
*1 If the equipment has a DVI jack and not an HDMI jack, connect the DVI jack to the HDMI IN (with HDMI-to-DVI cable and/or adapter jack), and connect the audio jack to the AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks of HDMI IN. (The DVI connector is for video signals only) To enjoy the best visual experience with your system, it is preferable to connect your best devices with the highest quality connections available. For example: your Blu-Ray Disc player or HD Set Top Box with HDMI, followed by your DVD player with Component, then your Video Cassette Recorder with S-video etc.Note: The quality of the picture also strongly depends on the quality of the cable used.
HDMI The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting high definition video and audio signals. HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source, such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). DVI The Digital Visual Interface is capable of transmitting high definition video, but does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA). It is possible to connect an HDMI device to a DVI device using a HDMI to DVI adapter. Component video Component video is an analogue connection. It is capable of transmitting high definition signals. Component does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA) S-Video Separate video, abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C is an analogue video signal that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and colour), unlike composite video which carries the entire set of signals in one signal line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries standard definition video. It does not carry audio on the same cable. Composite video Composite video is an analogue video (no sound) format. This is the connector you should use if you do not have any other connector available, in terms of quality. RF/Coaxial RF Coaxial Cable connection is used for transferring television signals (audio and video) originating from an antenna or cable box to a Television.



Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

What is the audio/video input?


Hi
Audio Video input or [AV] input is meant for to connect the TV to any external device which has AV output. For example, you can connect the TV with a DVD/VCR/Blu-Ray/Amplifier etc. The audio video output of the connectig device has to connect to the audio video input of the TV with an audio video cable. This cable can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart shops. After connectin it such, you have to go to the input selection window of the TV and must select the input of the tV to Audio Video. No tuning or any other adjustment should be done then. Just play the connected device and see the its output by Tv. OK.

Subwoofer not working.... JVC surround sound system 778V Subwoofer Part Number SP-PW37-SUB I hear a hum coming from unit so there's power going to it. I hear weak bass thumps with volume turned all the way...


A connectivity check could provide the solution, notice any wrong wire connections on device or any other devices requiring interconnection. The woofer would perform properly when the connections that provide current for woofing are approapiate

important notes
1. Trace the connection from Recorder or sound output to the woofer device
2. The wiring connections should be sound and video ouput into sound and video output into woofer.
3. The connections if any problems would be located at the stereo recorder or device producing the spund and video. Check the connections of wires on the recorder device ensuring rewiriing
4. finally, adjust the equalisers if any the buttoms could have been disbled by master switch hindering full blaster boost sound.

When i try to connect my genius hs-03u's to my ps3 it doesnt work is there any way to make them connect


First, examine the connection receptables on the PS 3. For example, inserting the head set pin into wrong PS 3 connection receptable would not produce any sound discussable.
1. The PS3 device has several connection receptacles either for video audio output or video audio in put.
2. Video audio out put only gets sound and movies out of the PS3 device to be projected on to another device, e.g. projector, TV screen or Any out put devices.

Note: You solution is to connect the headset to the out put indication area keeping in mind not to connect to the Video receptable, else would be trying to output video signals to the headset.

Caution: You do not want to connect the headset pin to the Video Audio Input receptacle areas, because, you would be trying to send signals into the PS3 device rather than get sound out.

Important Notes;
Getting signals out of a device like PS3 is inserting the headset in this case, pin connector would be inserted in the INPUT Area; keep in mind your are tryinng to hear sound, SO connect the HeadSet PIN to AUDIO reception area on the PS3 device

The same techniques is achievable for all equipment requirign connection.
REMEMBER TO PHYSOCALLY LOCATE THE INPUT to OUTOUT area on the device.

Give the following proccess a try.

contact the manual of the PS3 device refering to the device connectivity chapters or
Systems diagnostic or malfunction chapters for technical material when required.
