I have a logitech webcam. On MSN, others see me; but I don't see myself


Open your messenger, then go to tools, then click on audio / video setup, then click on next and go through the setup process.
Also ensure you plug your cam in the main usb port at the back o your computer, try to avoid using the front usb ports or added usb hubs as there needs to be a direct conection.

I just bought the C500 today, and installed it on my new laptop. It will work fine for a bit, then the webcam software will freeze, the sound on my computer will stop working, and some programs won't open....


Sounds more like a conflict between the software you installed and the software on your computer
visit the logitech website click on your camera and check out the support for your model

Go to windows Control Panel, click on Sounds and Audio Devices, and check under the "Audio" and "Voice" tabs to ensure that the recording device and the voice recording device are both set to the microphone that is associated with the webcam.

Others can view myself very clearly, i cannot view myself clearly


Tell them to check this
Normal 0 How much memory is installed in your computer? The camera uses quite a bit of your memory to operate properly and would cause the poor video. Could be other
Issues, but worth checking.
Hope this helps. Bud

No sound on my webcam.. there was before


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
