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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

It seems you need to reinstall the drivers for this webcam.

Click on "start".
Go to "run" or type in the "search bar": devmgmnt.msc

Hit enter.

Right click on the "Imaging devices" and select the web-cam drivers.

Un-install it and restart the computer.

Download the latest drivers from:

Restart the computer and it should be fine.

My webcam won't let me take pictures .. What do i do so i can take them ?


In order to use your web cam and take pictures follow these steps :

- Check if your web cam is working or not ( when you turn on the web cam do you get the power light on or not)

- If the web cam is working fine if it is not then you can check the cables, unplug it and replug it if you are using an external cam on a desktop computer.

- Uninstall the web cam software from add and remove programs from control panel.

- reinstall the web cam software / utility.
you can do this using the disc which you have got when you bought the web cam.

If you don't have the disc you can go to the manufacturers web page and you can download the software and driver from there.
Must ensure that you select the correct serial number of your web cam when you do this.
