Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

Crashing Software and will not open aghain until windows restart

When i use the software, nte that I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and have done this on 3 seperate occasions. The camera will only work for one recording. You can hit record. Hope the video was perfect. and then hit stop. But if you hit record again, the software will freeze, then will become unresponsive. Then the only way to shut it off is with the task manager. But when i go to open the software again, it does not open at all. nor does it even try to open. it's aggravating. If i want to record more than one video, not only do i have to make it perfect the first time around, but i have to restart the computer everytime. and it hardly seems worth it.

Try downloading the last verion of software from Microsoft Download Center ,

If that does not solve the problem, then Windows is defective and must be reinstalled.

How to turn it on


Hi

For some webcams, it is better to install the drivers and software first and then connect the camera afterwards.

If you have installed the drivers and software with the camera connected, disconnect the webcam > uninstall all components of the webcam software > restart the computer > reinstall the webcam drivers and software > restart the computer > reconnect the webcam > (My) Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary) > send to > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop webcam icon.

I hope this helps.

I keepgetting camera connection wizard stopped working


Sounds like some software got left behind when you uninstalled.
I would recommend downloading a free uninstaller 'Revo'
Disconnect your webcam and close all other programs
Open Revo and double click on your webcam software - confirm you wish to uninstall.
Select the 'Advanced' mode - this will set a restore point - uninstall the webcam software using the manufacturers uninstall program and then it will scan your C drive and Registry for any fragments that failed to uninstall.
Select everything it finds and delete all.
Some uninstallers ask you to restart the computer - ignore this until Revo has told you everything has been uninstalled

I am unable to uninstall the software for Genius


Go to windows explorer and find the uninstall there. In the program folder for it, it will be one of the applications. If all else fails, just reinstall it. The files that are there now will just be overwritten.

Driver not recognised


Usually, I have seen with most USB webcam, they want you to only plug in your webcam after the software ask you to plug in the webcam. If this is the case, uninstall and reinstall (but, do not plug in webcam until the software tells you to).
