Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

The video will freeze and go blank

Everything seems to be working then the video feezes and goes black. We will reopen the program and it will say initialization error? HELP! This is frustrating...I've had this thing since June and still haven't been able to figure it out, with the little free time I have had available.

How much memory do you have installed in your computer. This can be a factor why it freezes up.
You can also try this.
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD 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

I have it everything installed but the camera just freezes.


What operating system are you using, Windows 7?
Did yo install the correct driver for your operating system?
If you did the above and it still doesn't work, I would restore your system to an earlier date than when you installed the webcam, and try to install the drivers for it, and try to use it.
More drastically, if it still doesn't work, then I would try 'Recovery' console to make your computer have the original settings from the factory, automatically install all Windows updates, then install the camera and reboot, and see if it works then. However, the latter method will destroy all of your data, so back it up before you do that.

This is the code for disk error. Make sure the disc is clean and try again. If that doesn't work, try a different copy of the disk and see if that helps.

No colour when I record using the Dazzle DVD Recorder.


Get a program called amcap and you also need pinnacle studio first open pinnacle studio then go to capture then if your using 12 dv then open amcap an error will come up then go to options then video filter settings or something then where it says pal or ntsc change it to secam b then go to pinnacle studio and look at the preview, it is in color then when you start recording it goes black and white again so open amcap go to options then video capture filter then change secam to ntsc then apply then go to secam b again then it will be recording in color then you have to cut out the black and white in pinnacle studio or any other video editing program I use sony vegas pro 9 then search tutorials on the program but it is easy in any program really.

Help with Call of Duty 4 singple player, multi player works fine?


I'm getting the same thing. Reinstalling will temporarily fix the problem, but it will occur again on a later stage. I'm waiting for a reply from Activision and I've posted this on the infinity ward forums and no one seems to know the cause or solution. For now, I'd say jump to a console version of the game and wait for a PC fix.

My Canon won't connect to my new iMac running Leopard


I've seen that before. It can be a loose connection (cables can be tempramental). I've changed what appear to be perfectly good cables, and which work fine on another computer, with a different cable and it worked. Also, some computers seem to care about sequence. Close the program with the camera connected, and on, and reopen it. Sometimes that works.

Cant seem to get sound after hookup


As I mentioned in another message, check the front left lower side of the receiver, there are two keys for SPEAKERS choice 1 or 2 or both. It could be that you had the wrong output choice.
