OK, your cam is in use by another program, you need to close that program. Go to Device Manager> Imaging Devices open right click on your webcam and disable, right click on the disabled webcam and enable now try to open the webcam in the sotware you were using.

I have toshiba c660. its built webcam was working perfectly. but few days back when i used it a blue light turned on but after closing the web cam blue light was still on but light was dim. when i opened...


Restart the computer and see if the blue light comes back on by itself. If you are still having problems visit the Toshiba support site for your country (or region). Download the webcam application compatible with your version of Windows (32 bits, 64 bits) and reinstall the application. Test it using the Start>Toshiba>Utilities>Webcam Application, or the Face recognition software. You close the running application by clicking the x at the top right corner of the application window

I have a sony vaio with built in web cam and windows 7 but i cant use the web cam . why is that?


Are you using the Sony Webcam companion? If not ou can download the application from Sony Vaio website. ( Sony Web Cam Companion ). If you are trying to use skype or any other video messaging software: Try to check if there are other video chat application running in the background of your computer. Open the system configuration utility (Windows key + R > msconfig ) then go to the Startup Tab. Uncheck all application that is related to video chat and leave the preferred video chat software active (checked). Restart the computer and viola! You can now use your webcam for video chat.

Lifeframe webcam on an asus laptop, says camera is used by another program


Don't open two programs that uses webcam, for example: if you have skype application opened with video call you can use the webcam at yahoo messenger. make show application that requires one web cam features like video calling are online opened when needed.
if the is a hidden program that you sure to have close it that is still in process, then open the task manager and click on applications, you will see and end it process there, if the problem persist then restart the computer.
