My computer continues to say webcam not found


Receiving an error message when trying to access your webcam can be frustrating, but the problem can often be resolved by doing some basic troubleshooting.



  • If you have an external webcam, check to see if it has become accidentally unplugged from your computer.
  • Perhaps another program is using your webcam. Close other programs and try accessing your webcam again.
  • If another program has crashed for some reason, it might not have released your webcam successfully. Try closing all programs and restarting your computer.
  • If you have an external webcam, it might not have installed correctly. Try reinstalling your webcam software program according to the manufacturer's instructions. For more information, go to How do I reinstall my webcam?
  • Perhaps Yahoo! Messenger is using the incorrect camera device on your computer. Try changing the camera source. For more information, go to How do I change my camera source?
  • Your webcam might not be configured correctly. Try reconfiguring your webcam according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Your camera might not be not compatible with Yahoo! Messenger you can verify this by using the webcam compatibility test. To try the webcam compatibility test, go to How can I tell if my webcam will work withYahoo! Messenger?

Why does my microsoft lifecam vx-3000 freeze everytime I try to use it on Yahoo? The microphone works fine, but once I try to turn on the camera, it freezes after about 2 seconds.


You should check that the webcam ports for the Yahoo messenger are open on your firewall and router, and make sure the Yahoo messenger application is allowed to access those ports (defined as an exception in your firewall).
More details are available in this webcam driver troubleshooting article.

Lifecam VX6000 webcam cannot be detected by yahoo messenger


Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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.
Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Yahoo messenger - Webcam is not connected


You cannot access camera source until the webcam is running in Messenger - try setting it up from scratch
1) The webcam is working outside of Messenger
2) Reboot webcam by unplugging the USB connection and inserting it again - its important if its been used elsewhere and prior to chat.
