Audio Setting is not setup right. See following info for help.

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

How do I install the Web Cam iLook 300


Follow these steps :
1. Install the webcam by plugging the USB cable in to the port, and turning on computer. The computer's operating system will find the camera, and ask you to install the driver. The camera should have come with an installation disc. Place the disc in the drive when it prompts you to install the driver click on "Yes." At this time it also will install the camera software.
2. Adjust the camera by going into the camera software. This will allow you to change things like the speaker, microphone and camera resolution settings. Focus by using the ring around the lens. The camera software should also allow you to take still photos from it as well as motion pictures. You can also usually do audio captures. These things will be labeled on the menu usually by obvious icons like a camera for still pictures.
3. Speak into the built in microphone that is in the camera or use an external headphone set.
4. Call a friend with Skype, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ, or Windows Live. All these Voice over IP software applications come integrated with webcam features that will allow you to talk to and see the person you call. To do this simply load up the software and call a person from your call list. To add a contact simply type in new contact and put in a person's e-mail address or user id. Either use a pair of headphones or the camera's built in microphone to speak into. There will be a button in Skype for a video call. The other softwares will also have a feature like this although it may say webcam.

Hi
Regarding with this problem it is a software problem. When you brought a laptop it is not ready to use you need to install the motherboard driver. Get the motherboard CD installer in your package box and install. So that the camera and microphone will working properly.

Built in microphone wont work


try re-installing the driver.

it's a bit complicated, but if you could figure out what kind of microphone you have i could get it for you.

right now try googling your computer make and model, plus "microphone driver"
it should come up with a link to download something, then install that if it looks trustworthy enough.

Webbcam works but no sound or microphone


First, make sure you have a webcam with a microphone, and run any test software the webcam came with to check and make sure it is *supposed* to work. Next, open SOUND PROPERTIES through the CONTROL PANEL and then from the menu go to ADVANCED and RECORDING and OKAY, to bring up a volume array that includes the control MICROPHONE. Then, dig around to make sure MICROPHONE is the input being selected for amplification, and try ADVANCED on MICROPHONE and turn on BOOST if it has this control. You can test whether all of this worked by opening SOUND RECORDER from ACCESSORIES and making a short recording of yourself cursing the machine and everyone who designs them. If it plays back normally, try your web camera again. If it still has no sound, the problem is in the settings of the web camera itself. Open whatever software it came with and check setting like MUTE and MICROPHONE VOLUME are set correctly.

Good luck...
