Web Cam Problem with the Microsoft NX-3000

I can see the video on my webcam perfectly when I just use the software on my computer. But it doesn't work when I want to use a program on the Internet, for example, Person.com Nothing shows up but a black screen and fuzz on the bottom. My webcam used to work there. Any ideas what's going on? How can I fix this. I don't think it's the camera since it works fine with the software. Maybe it's a setting I do/don't have?
Thanks!

Try using Skype as it is free and a really good program to communicate with family & Friends. Here is info to help.

Normal 0 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

Installing a lifecam nx 3000. get no sound from


Download the latest software driver from the Microsoft web site. Make sure your webcam is plugged directly into the computer and not through a hub or extension cable. Start up the Lifecam software. Using the Lifecam menu (triangle in the upper right corner), set the microphone volume to max via "audio and video settings".

My Windows NX-3000 Web cam wont let my PC load


Normal 0 Did you connect the camera before installing the software program? If you did, disconnect the camera from the USB Port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to reconnect the printer, then plug the cable back into the USB port and it should function properly.

Hope this is of some help. Bud
