Question about Philips SPC700NC Webcam

1 Answer

Ever since I installed the Philip's Webcam software and particularly clicking on the vlounge icon on my desktop I can not connect to the internet. I called my ISP and they said I have a good strong connection .. but something is causing my computer not to connect. My internet was working perfectly before I put that cd in.

I would first uninstall the Web Cam and see ifthe internet returns to normal and works. If it works okay, then I'd contact Phillips and see if they have an answer to the problem. Hope this is of some help. Bud

How to turn it on


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 installed win7 but webcam icon is missing


Try the following tips to see if you can get the Desktop icon back.

1. Right click the desktop
2. Select View -> Show Desktop Icon
3. Make sure the option is checked.

If this does not work, then you can try and go into the installation directory for your webcam software. For example, when you install the Webcam software, it may be installed in C:\program files\webcam brand name

In the installation folder you should have a .EXE file. If you right click on the .EXE file you can then select "Send To" then select "Desktop(shortcut).

You can also use this method by going to Start > then in the search box type the name of your webcam and you should get a list showing your webcam program. You can right click this and create a desktop icon as well.

Comment back if you have any questions.

How can i install my web cam?

Hi,If you don't have CD for installation, Use the below link to download it.


Set Up and Use the VX-3000 personal web camera
  • 1 Install the software using the included CD and plug the LifeCam into a free USB port. For desktop use, place the LifeCam on a clear spot on your desk that's free of other objects, including cables. The camera should not be more than an arm's length away from you. For LCD (or similar object) use, push the center part of the camera's base upward, place the camera on the LCD and close the base around the monitor to secure it.
  • 2 Open the device software by clicking the Microsoft LifeCam icon on your Windows desktop. If no such icon exists on your Windows desktop, click "Start," click "All Programs" and locate the Microsoft LifeCam program in the list of programs there. After launching the LifeCam program, look at the image that appears. If necessary, adjust the camera to more precisely reflect your appearance. For best results, try to center the camera image on your head and shoulders.
  • 3 Click the video camera icon on the bottom panel of the LifeCam program to begin video capture. Video will begin recording, and you will see a "Recording Video" message beneath the live video image. To stop recording, press the same icon (the icon will have a red square with a blue background during recording).
  • 4 To begin audio capture, click the microphone icon on the bottom panel. To stop the audio recording, click the same icon (again, it will have a red square with a blue background during recording). To snap a photo, click the camera icon on the bottom panel.
  • 5 Access any of your captured video, audio or image files by clicking the folder on the bottom panel. The VX-3000 also provides the ability to edit video or image files using supported software. After snapping a photo or capturing video, click the "Edit" icon that appears beneath the thumbnail of the captured content.

  • Hope it helps.

    Skype does not see my web cam. i can see the person on the other end of the call but they cant see me?

    Skype is very particular about webcams having the latest drivers/software.
    Your webcam has no bearing on being able to see your contact - you could still see their broadccast if you had no webcam installed.
    I suggest you uninstall the current webcam software and download new software

    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?",en?prodcrid=405

    In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to run the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
    To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.
    Work your way through the tabs and check the 'notes' window for any information

    Procedure to re-install Logitech software
    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 during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
    Connect your webcam when prompted.

    When going into skype disconnect your webcam to reboot the webcam software but do not run any logitech software - allow Skype to take full control.

    The web cam does not work at all on either the quick viiew software although we have downloaded the driver it is not found

    Activating the webcam
    The drivers for the webcam are pre-installed and an HP Webcam 1000 icon displays on the desktop. Double-click on the icon to activate the webcam. The blue light illuminated next to the webcam lens, just above the LCD screen, indicates the webcam is on.

    If double-clicking on the icon does not activate the webcam, do the following activities:

    Click Start, then right-click on My Computer, and then select Properties.

    On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
    Click on the plus ( +) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
    If the webcam is not listed, do the following activities to install the driver using the webcam driver recovery.
    Click Start, click All Programs, click PC Help & Tools, and then click HP Application Recovery.
    Select Driver installation and click Next.
    Select the HP Webcam 1000 driver from the list, and click Install.
    If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the icon, the webcam is disabled. See figure below.
    Figure 1: Disabled Webcam Icon

    To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable. The webcam icon should display on the Desktop.
    Alternate locations for the webcam icon
    If the webcam is installed but the icon is not displayed on the desktop, look for the webcam icon in one of these alternate locations.
    Click Start, and click My Computer. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices. See figure below.
    Click Start, and click Control Panel , and then click Scanners and Cameras. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices.
    The HP Webcam 1000 does not install a listing under any of the All Programs menu.
    Using the Webcam Diagnostic Test
    To ensure the webcam is operating, do the following activities:
    Right-click on the WebCam icon, and then select Properties.
    Click on Test Camera under Diagnostics on the General tab.
    The test should only take a few moments, but allow the test to complete operations by itself.
    The result of the test, either “passed” or “failed”, will be displayed.
