Hi

you have to google the problem and see if anyone else has that issue and how they resolved it.


it sounds like there is a compatibility issue with the Skype software and your windows i would delete and reinstall Skype or try a different version of skype.


i know over the last 10 years a lot of laptops have had ssues with the earler skype software.


cheers

    I've read also some support questions at the Skype support center. There are a lot of computers of various brands with the some problem. The Skype expert said that probably is a problem beetwen Windows8 and Skype. In the next days ( friday 7 december he said 5 days), will be released a new skype version with the green screen problem solved. I will keep informed

SOURCE: WEB CAM OF LENOVO Y510 IS nt working in skype

Try pressing the "Fn" and "esc" buttons on the keyboard both at the same time to turn the camera on or off. It may work or may not, but that is the way it is supposed to work. There have been a lot of problems with this web cam and yahoo messenger. The only other thing I can suggest is to contact Lenovo and see if they might have another driver that can resolve this.

Hi,

Please try to use the camera using different applications like yahoo messenger, skype or Lenovo Youcam. If non of them works with the camera follow the instructions below.

Please try Fn+Esc. This function allows you to enable or disable the built-in camera for Lenovo Laptops. There should be a small camera symbol that would appear on the lower right corner of the screen. If the camera symbol has " \ " on it, it means the camera is disable but if not it means its enable.

Check if the camera is seen on the device manager and check it properties. Make sure the camera's status is "Device is working properly". If not download the driver from the link below.

Hi sonypony,

I see that you are having issue with using the camera on your Lenovo with other programs such as Skyp or Yahoo Messenger and so on...

On your Lenovo the camera works with easy capture, that is a good sign saying that your camera works but how to make it work on other applications you will need to get in the applications settings and select the Lenovo Camera as a default device for that specific application that you are using to utilize the camera.

all the applications you mentioned earlier has thier own settings page and this is where you can set each to make the Lenovo Camera the default deivce for it to work on your applications.

I hope that this will help you with your Camera concern.

Have a nice day,

Hi,

I don't think its your webcam that is at fault. I think it's already in skype. I have the same Lenovo model and there are times skype doesn't transmit video. So, I usually do is turn on and turn off the skype video call for the video to reappear. Can you do the following:

1) Make sure you have adequate lighting. Sometimes if you are in a dark room, skype will also transmit black videos to the other end.

2) Have you checked the video settings in skype? Go to Tools->Options. Click video settings. Click webcam settings and try to tweak your video from there.

Dear friend, if other side does not have a cam or does not put the cam on mode

2. wireless net connection,
3. if the other side camera open for other messenger , for exam Yahoo/msn & at the
same time she/he sending you a cam viewing invitation in Skype , that time you will
see those screens.

Web cam problem with skype


Normal 0 See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud
