    Computer reads that the webcam is installed. So do all the programs and it opens the webcam window/image just fine but it just remains black. I've tried everything I can think of and I can't fix it.

Blurred image


A webcam is first and foremost a camera that uses a lens to gather light reflected by an object. There are a number of reasons why the image captured by the webcam can be blurry, all of which can be remedied.
Supplies from a photography store or hobby shop, along with items that most people already have in their homes, are needed.
The webcam does not need to be disassembled in any way in order to obtain a sharp and clear image.

Launch the webcam's video program by selecting it from the "Start," and the "All Applications" menu.
Aim the webcam towards you so that you can see the blurry image presented in the program's video window.
Rotate the knurled focus ring that surrounds the lens at the front of the webcam until the image is sharp; if there is no focus ring, position the webcam closer or farther from you until the video image is sharp.
Blow off the lens at the front of the webcam with compressed air.
Moisten the end of a cotton swab in photo lens cleaning solution.
Wipe the lens with the moistened end of the swab, beginning at the center and rotating in a circle until you reach the outer edge.
Wipe the lens dry with a lens tissue in the same manner as was just done, to remove the contaminants that caused the blurry image.
Launch the webcam video program that is on the hard drive.
Select the "Advanced" or "Options" tab at the top of the program's main window -- depending on how the program is set up to bring up a settings window.
Reset the "Sharpness" control to 65 percent of the total possible, using a slider control or entering "65" in a text field.
Click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the window, followed by the "OK" button to sharpen the image transmitted by the webcam.

When i take pictures or on webcam with some1 they say im bluryy and i need help so i can see a clear picture of my self no blurry


webcams are not good for taking still photos. they are best for video. and even at that they are not very good quality, their use is for online streaming of video, which they are good at.

if you really want to take a good still photograph with your webcam you should use the application that comes with it, make sure not to move, and make sure the lighting in the room is static, else the camera will keep adjusting which results in a blurry image.

My rocketfish camera is to blurry. every time i take i pic i can see it blurry/fussy. What can i do?


See if there is a ring on the front of the webcam lens that can be rotated to sharpen the image. Also try the tips in the article How To Improve Webcam Video Quality for other techniques on getting the best image possible from a webcam.

Blurry picture


Make sure the lens is clean
Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens you can rotate to sharpen the image - like a telescope.
Others rely on software and you set the focal length for the best picture.

Have blurry image - how do you fix it- Logitech Quickcam for Notebook


On the camera, the plastic around the lens rotates, that is used for focus. Open a video feed from the camera and adjust it until the image is clear. The lens might also need to be cleaned if it has got dirty, use a qtip with water or alcohol to clean the lens on the outside.

There is an adjustment lens infront of your webcam. Try to rotate it slowly clockwise and if you reach the end and still blurry, rotate back slowly until the imag is acceptable.


Hope this helps.
