Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

Hello. I can't install my Labtec Webcam. I have Windows Vista and the latest driver from Labtec Website. After installation the software tries to find my Webcam and asks for connection. I connect webcam into USB, Vista see it, but Labtec driver - doesn't. If I press "skip" I have no video, just a program. What should I do? On XP works perfect.

Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, thendo so and it should work okay. You will need to use Skype or other messenger to use on line. Here is info for you to use. Bud

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they areto be used with. Just installing thecamera 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 forthe 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 andtalk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger setit 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 soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Ok i can see the other person they can't see me i can also hear them and they can hear me though i can't be seen


1.Check that your webcam is switched on and is connected to your computer.

2.Close all programs that may be using the webcam. These include video editing software, instant messengers (such as Yahoo Messenger or Windows Live Messenger), browsers, Windows Explorer, and even some websites.

3.Make sure that both you and the person you are video calling are using the latest version of Skype, Yahoo Messenger..

4.Make sure that you have the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, you can get the latest version of DirectX by updating Windows with the latest service packs and updates. For Windows XP, you can download it here.

5.Check that your webcam is listed in Device Manager
Do one of the following:
Windows 7: Click the Windows button and select Control Panel.
Click Hardware and Sound and under Devices and Printers select Device Manager.
Click the little arrow beside Imaging Devices.Windows Vista: Open the Start menu and select Control Panel.
Open System and Maintenance and click Device Manager.Windows XP:Open the Start menu and select Control Panel. Open System and in the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.Under Imaging devices, check that you webcam is listed

12_9_2011_1_37_52_am.jpg

If it's not listed, reinstall the drivers for your webcam.
A driver is the program you install with the webcam which makes it work on your computer. (Some webcams use preinstalled drivers so you may not have had to install one.) Make sure you have the most recent drivers for your webcam by downloading them from the webcam manufacturer's website.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on this issue .And try to include more information in your request ...like camera model # , operating system ( windows xp ,vista ,7, etc ...) , and the software you are using to chat online ..(yahoo messenger, skype , facebook,or any other platform ...)

Trying to install Labtec drivers for my labtec webcam for Windows 7. It worked perfectly fine with Windows XP and Windows Vista. I updated to 7 and nothing.


You can contact Labtech from here
http://www.labtec.com/index.cfm/service/splash/AMR/EN,CRID=3

You may have to run it in Compatibility mode if Windows 7 webcam software is not available - I'm sure they can advise you

To navigate to CM on my logitech I rightclick the webcam shortcut icon on the desktop and click 'Properties' and then the 'Compatibility' tab.

I could not find the Windows 7 64-bit drivers on Labtec website. However, I would suggest to download & install the Windows Vista 64-bit drivers.

Here's how to download them:
1. Go to: http://www.labtec.com/index.cfm/service/listing/EUR/EN,crid=68,crid2=1764
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the section "Software for Labtec Notebook WebCam, Webcam Pro, WebCam Plus, plus SE and labtec® webcam".
3. From the "- Select Your Operating System -" drop-down menu, select "Windows Vista 64-bit".
4. From the "- Select Your Language -" drop-down menu, select "English".
5. Click on the "download" button to start the download.

Webcam problem /windows vista


WRONG .... i wish people did research before thinking they know everything ....... and its not Vista more of Labtec, with certain old usb labtec cams, they decided to stop all support on them, there fore the latest drivers from labtec for vista may mean it wont work. There are ways around it but u need to be lucky and find drivers which are version 6 or below first for it to work.
