Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

We can't get the webcam to work after one party answers the call

Looks like picture loading, but call disconnects. Do we both have to have the same webmail provider to make it work? I have live.com and my brother has earthlink.net

I have written this to help people to setup their Web Cams on Skype and Yahoo Messenger.
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 is of some help to you in setting up Skype. Bud

There is no picture after i have tryed to set it up alot of times. the only thing that works in the microphone. this means i cannot use the web cam propaly, videos, pictures, chat rooms etc. please look in...


To install the webcam properly you must first uninstall it from Control Panel->Add Remove Programs. Reboot the PC after disconnecting the webcam. Then reinstall the webcam drivers from the CD that came with it. Reboot the PC. Now connect the webcam and allow Windows to detect the webcam and load its drivers and give you a msg saying "The new HW has been installed and is ready for use". Now you must configure the IM. Here you must go to tools->Options ->Video and setup the webcam as default camera. Save the settings and start using the webcam for all purposes.

My Logitech C200 webcam video freezes 20 seconds into a call


Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager. Here locate your webcam, select it and delete it. Now disconnect the webcam from the laptop. Reboot. Insert the Logitech CD and install the drivers afresh. Reboot. Connect the webcam and allow Windows to detect it and load its drivers. Windows will take a long time to do this. Now configure the Instant manager to use this webcam as default camera. And start using. But before you do that start the webcam program to use this camera to check if it takes the video continuously. I do not see any problems now. Trick with Logitech is to load drivers with the device disconnected.

Use on laptop creates noise & frozen picture 4 person talking to


Its not due to the laptop, the other person is viewing you on the internet (Yahoo/Msn etc) so the Video might get frozen sometimes or may be a lot many times depending on the bandwidth or the server load.

The voice is due to the microphone you are using, you can use microphone with noise reduction technology with some noise reduction utility.

Using Skype 4.1 everything works fine with one small problem. Picture of party I am speaking with has a vertical yellow line down the center of his/her picture. How do I get rid of that line?


check your internet speed and make sure it is pretty good.

check also the other party's cam, maybe some hair or other tiny object is blocking the camera lens.

Normal 0 You need to go to the manufactures site and download the VISTA driver for the camera. Then follow the info below to install the program.



Disconnect 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
