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

Is there a design flaw with the LCD for the s220


I'm not convinced that the LCD itself is bad, from what is reported. The LCD display has a ribbon connector that connects to the main circuit board, and can come slightly loose. When it does, the camera has to be disassembled to disconnect and reconnect the connector. There is no design flaw that I know or have heard of concerning this camera. This happens with all brands of digital cameras at times, not just the Coolpix. It doesn't cost anything to disconnect and reconnect the ribbon connector, so I would try that first, then replace it if does turn out to be bad. There are videos on YouTube that show how to reseat the connector. Good luck, and hope this helps.

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.

Noise on web cam


Normal 0 Twothings can cause static.
First,If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causingdistortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Secondreason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphonebetween the two it will cause distortion and static.
Notknowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze theproblem.
Sohope this is of some help. Bud
