Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Try this, disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work You may need this info so you can communicate with family and friends on line.



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 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 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 see and talk to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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.
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

My Lifecam VX - 3000 lets me see and hear others but persons being called cannot see or hear me.


Its not your lifecam that is allowing you to see or hear the other person, it basically means that the other persons video and audio equipment is installed properly and yours is not, try downloading the latest version of the life cam software and see if it resolves this problem or if your lifecam software installed correctly there is an update feature run that and it will download a package called icweb.exe or something, install that...hope this helps..

Microsoft vx-3000 won't work on MSN!!


What you can do is click the Sound Icon beside the Nudge Button. It might bring up a window titled "Set up Audio and Video - Speaker/Microphone or Speakerphone" the Microsoft Vx-3000 has a microphone built in, so you can change your audio settings to "Microsoft Vx-3000" , then click next. The next one is Webcam. You can change the default settings to Microsot vx-3000.

If you've tried changing your settings for MSN before, then I'm not sure. This is the clever way for me :P

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...


Normal 0 Go to Control Panel and Click on Sounds, Click on Audio, then Click on the Microphone. Then Click on the drop down and select Camera Microphone.
Click OK and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
