Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

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

My webcam A4tech PK-710G dose not fucuse what's the problem?


1. Probably your camera doesn`t support this option.
2. You don`t installed corectlly your web-cam driver. You need to find the drivers on the provider`s site. After you downloaded it, you uninstall your curent web-cam driver and install your new one.

My camera doesn't work


It is quiet difficult to address this problem as there can be many reasons for the same. Although for your perusal i am writing a few and their solutions:

1) Most importantly check whether your Camera Driver is installed correctly. To ensure that, Right Click My Computer, Manage, Device Manager and look if you can see any yellow question marks. If yes than download the driver and install it.

2) Acer Laptops comes with a Camera Software Utility, open it and see what it tells you about the status of your camera. If an error comes please post it here in comments.

3) Your camera is generally connected with a strip to the motherboard, if everything else is right then there can be problem with it. The connection of the strip could be loose.

My problam is that my cam is not working


Try and remove the usb cord from the camera and computer then go to control panel then add/remove programs,remove the logitech camera restart then reinstall.
If this doesn't work
Try to uninstall and then reinstall your drivers. Or check for updates from the manufacturer. To modify your drivers go to your Control Panel> Hardware and Device> Imaging (most likely something like this)> and then find your Logitech camera. Click on the drivers tab and check for updates. If this doesnt work then uninstall the drivers and then reinstall them. Check and make sur eyour cables are all tight as well.

Hello there, i have this webcam model Intel CS 431 and Windows 7 on my computer. So this webcam doesn work on Windows 7? Thank you


Hi,
The webcam will work on Windows 7 - just download the latest drivers available from the intel website for the webcam, if windows 7 is not listed just download the windows vista drivers and if they do not work then try the xp drivers, you will be able to get it working with the drivers available as win 7 is quite clever like that.

HP In-Built Webcam Saying It's Disconnected All The Time


I had the same problem a couple of months ago. My problem was that the cable going to the webcam had worked it's way out slightly, simple fix! Don't even really need any tools, just pull the top of the plastic surround off the screen, get your pocket knife and push it back up! I recommend taping the cable in so it doesn't do it again - I had to do it 3 times before I taped it and now it's fine.
You have probably already sorted it but this solution can be for the next person. Cheers, Tony
