Normal 0 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

Blurred image


A webcam is first and foremost a camera that uses a lens to gather light reflected by an object. There are a number of reasons why the image captured by the webcam can be blurry, all of which can be remedied.
Supplies from a photography store or hobby shop, along with items that most people already have in their homes, are needed.
The webcam does not need to be disassembled in any way in order to obtain a sharp and clear image.

Launch the webcam's video program by selecting it from the "Start," and the "All Applications" menu.
Aim the webcam towards you so that you can see the blurry image presented in the program's video window.
Rotate the knurled focus ring that surrounds the lens at the front of the webcam until the image is sharp; if there is no focus ring, position the webcam closer or farther from you until the video image is sharp.
Blow off the lens at the front of the webcam with compressed air.
Moisten the end of a cotton swab in photo lens cleaning solution.
Wipe the lens with the moistened end of the swab, beginning at the center and rotating in a circle until you reach the outer edge.
Wipe the lens dry with a lens tissue in the same manner as was just done, to remove the contaminants that caused the blurry image.
Launch the webcam video program that is on the hard drive.
Select the "Advanced" or "Options" tab at the top of the program's main window -- depending on how the program is set up to bring up a settings window.
Reset the "Sharpness" control to 65 percent of the total possible, using a slider control or entering "65" in a text field.
Click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the window, followed by the "OK" button to sharpen the image transmitted by the webcam.

I dont know how to on my webcam I cant find any signal of webcam


Welcome to FixYa

Dear User,

Load the installation CD in computer. Choose your language, accept the licensing agreement and follow other on-screen prompts.

Connect the Logitech webcam's USB cable to your computer. A few minutes may pass while your computer detects its new hardware. A screen should then appear with an image from the newly installed Logitech webcam.

Follow on-screen prompts as the installation program performs an audio configuration.

Restart the computer and start enjoying your Logitech webcam.

Hope you got it.Dont forget to Rate[Let me Know if you need further assistance]..Thanks for Connecting FixYa...

The image from logitech E2500 qickcam is split into 4 vertically squashed images. It was installed from the CD that came with it. Any solutions welcome please. from Peter


Check you have no 'Fun Filters' selected - its the only place I have seen 4 split images on my Logi webcam
It will be within the 'Video Effects' menu ( 2 theatre masks )
Start your cam in 'Quick Capture' first ( 2 film frames with 1 head and shoulder pic )

Failing that I suggest you re-install from the website

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to download Microsoft DirectX 9 or later to support your webcam

Procedure
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Video picture is not clear on webcam. Picture is not focused. How do I correct the blurred image seen by the webcam?


Most web cams have a short focal range, (Nearest to furthest focused content), and have a front lens that turns like a dial so you can choose where you want your camera to focus.

Try Twisiting the housing or ring around the front lens, if it turns then turn it while viewing the image on the computer to set the focus where you like.

Also make shure there are NO smudges on the lens, it's small so even the tinyest smudge or spec is huge on the screen.
