Question about Microsoft LifeCam NX-3000 Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Video appearance online

I can see the video on my webcam perfectly when I just use the software on my computer. But it doesn't work when I want to use a program on the Internet, for example, Cameriod. Nothing shows up bt a black screen and fuzz on the bottom. My webcam used to work there. Any ideas what's going on? How can I fix this. I don't think it's the camera since it works fine with the software. Maybe it's a setting I do/don't have?
Thanks!

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

Webcam not recording video


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer The Dell Inspiron line of laptop computers allows consumers to customize their system in a number of ways, from hardware specifications to color. The laptop also comes with an integrated webcam that can be used as a camera and for video Web chats. You can use the camera from the Dell Webcam Manager application, which controls all the functions of the camera.

Click the "Start" button on your computer, highlight "All Programs," and select "Dell Webcam Manager" from the list of available applications. Click on the "Webcam Center" icon. From the tab at the top of screen, select the action you want the camera to perform. You can use the camera to record videos, snap photos, detect motion, monitor remotely, and take time-lapse video. Press the "Record" button to start recording video or take a snapshot.

Hi,

Please try reinstalling the camera drivers/software and also the application you use to view your camera first uninstall all the drivers from control panel>add/remove programs and then reinstall the drivers/software again from the disc provided to you.If you use any online chat messengers for video chat like skype or yahoo then reinstall that also.

This should fix the problem.

Hello :

Before i start to give a solution i would like to tell you that rebooting system after any new installing or uninstalling of any software is very important .
For your Webcam , i recommend you to uninstall it's software completely and reboot your system . After that install it again and reboot your system again .
You have to do that while the Cam is connected to your computer .
After that , you need to set that software correctly before you start to run the Cam again . !
If that didn't help , then i recommend you to restore your system to the a previous point [time] when the cam was working perfectly .
If that didn't help also , then i advice you to get it back to the place where you bought it from . But don't forget to take the guarantee and the bill with you .

I hope that can help you .

rate if that was useful please !

Please remove first the usb cam and reinsert it and if the PC detects the hardware as USB device then you have to remove the old installed driver in your control panel and re-install the cd driver for your camera. It was just file corruption happen in your cam.

How can I get Microsoft Lifecam VX-5000 to work with Skype?


I had the same problem with Lifecam VX3000 on Vista, and tried all the remedies everyone suggested online, including upgrades to driver, software, and DirectX. I even went out and bought a new webcam by a different manufacturer.

Turns out the answer was simpler. DON'T turn on the Lifecam software before you start Skype!

If you do, Skype thinks that "another program" is using the webcam. Open Skype alone; it will find the webcam and turn it on. Now I can chat with our little grandson in Kuala Lumpur. Hope this helps.

I cant get my webcam to work with the Flash Flash Revolution video chat....


This webcam comes with ArcSoft Video Impressions. Once the webcam is installed I would open up Video Impressions, go to New, Capture and click on the little eyeball looking thing for live view. A black screen most commonly is that you are installing a nonVista certified webcam on a Vista machine. If this is the case, this webcam has workaround instructions located at www.jascoproducts.com, support, browse and update Vista and then scroll to the bottom of the page. You will see a PDF that you need to download and follow those instructions. It's not a guaranteed fix as this webcam is not Vista certified, but it may work. If you are getting a VFW driver, you need to go to Microsoft.com and download the latest DirectX. This will give you the video driver you need. I hope this helps!
