Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web do this.
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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) 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 video 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 be able to see and her to you.
B. 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.
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

Camera is the problem ....plz help


Try installing the WEBcam driver.
You can download WEBcam driver from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
I cannot give you the link to this WEB site because you did not provide details of the make and model of your laptop.

Web cam


This is usally done through the software/application that comes with the web cam or laptop for built in web cams.

A quick solution: If you can see the picture you wont on your screen you can always press the "print screen" key on your keybord, open an application like paint and past (Ctrl+V) it in then save.

PC Wont register Camera is connected


If it is a cam corder, a lot of them only work for stills once hooked up to the PC (via USB). Are you certain the cam be used via a computer.
If the camcorder contains both USB and IEE1394/firewire and your computer has both USB and firewire, then sometimes the USb interface is set to stills only and the firewire interface is set to motion only.
Which make/model?

Computer wont register camera


Check with JVC and your manual to ensure that this camera can be used as a still camera when connected to the PC. I think even some high end cameras do not have this functionality.
You don't say which version of Windows you are running.

I would check with JVC's web site or on your driver disc to see that there are WDM / TWAIN drivers to allow your GZ-MG130 to be seen as an imaging device in Windows.
