Recheck settings. See info below.

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.

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 should 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

I have a Microsoft LifeCam VX 700 web cam but i cant hear the person im talkig to, the sound is all distorted. they can hear me clearly


Play some sound file (song etc.) in your computer. If it sounds perfect then the problem is from the other side. ie. "the sound is all distorted" because the microphone is not properly handled by the person you are talking to or probably their mic is faulty.

Logitech 9000 recording problem


My suggestion for recording music of any sort is to disable the cam mic and use a good quality mic plugged into the sound card as the mic in a cam is more suited to voice.

Webcam audio problem


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone and have a built-in mike, between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

Web cam showing blurred images


First off welcome to fixya.com.

You may try adjusting the cameras focus. Usually on the front of the camera where the lens is located it will turn left and right. Turn it one way until it gets clearer, if it gets more blurry turn the other way.

Also make sure the lens is clean by taking a soft cloth and wiping it off, some cameras have very small lenses so you may need to use a Q-tip to get the soft cloth onto the lens.

I hope that helps out, if not feel free to let us know.
