everyone has this problem have you set the cam up with msn
try this first and then let me know

After you start Windows Live Messenger,
expand the view by clicking on the square
on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the
right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click
on “Show the Menu Bar”.
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on Action.
Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting
and follow the instructions.
let me know if you still have a problem

How do i use my web cam on msn on my aspire one netbook?


Here are the steps to use web cam on MSM:-
Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your display picture.
Click the "Webcam" icon.
Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation. Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
Open the MSN Messenger program on your computer.

Show or Hide Your Webcam
Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says "Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams.
Good luck, do rate the solution if got help

Acerorbicam not working on msn & google videochat ...


Hi Diana, Uninstall the cam & install it again. after that open my computer andopen the cam. If there your camera working properly then the camera & installation both are ok. After that try it in MSN & google video chat. Remember Msn always read inbuild camera for laptop. If its on in msn and same problem then there is some problem cames from MSN. For camera comfirmation you can login yahoo messenger and open the cam from there. IF you face same problem then the problem occur by internet connection. So you must check the internet connection after that all. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

I can't get my camera to work with my messenger program, can you help (AOL, Yahoo, MSN)? I can see others, they can see me, but I can not see myself. There is a camera with a red x thru it... What does...


you aren't connected on some hp's you may have to redownload the drivers for the cam, thats what i had to do when I first got my laptop, also it must be completly turned off cause if your using it in another program it will recognize it as being inuse and it will not allow it to turn on. you have to manually turn it on through the messanger service options menu.
