Problem with Toshiba A205-S4707 Built in Web Cam

It's been working fine for the past year but, yesterday, I tried to use it and it said ''Error - Please Turn On Camera''

Is there a manual way to turn it on that I don't know of?

I've pressed Alt-F7 and it brings up the screen but there's no image & if I press the camera to take a picture it says, Error- Please turn on Camera

I've went to the Toshiba site & have installed a program that would uninstall it & then reinstall it and I keep getting the same thing.

Is there something I'm missing here?

Have you knocked the laptop at all?
you may have disconnected it by accident. probably not but its possible. if you have a accidental coverage then you're fine.or house insurance which covers it.

My staellite A205-S4707 gets a charge, powers on but will not stay on for more than 30 seconds. any thoughts here?


A couple of thoughts,

Is this the case while connected to the charger? If not try starting it while still connected to the charger. If it runs OK, your battery may have died.

If it still doesn't run, it may be a over-heating problem. Check underneath, see if all the vents are clear and free of dust.

On my Toshiba Satellite a205-s4707 dvd player not working


Allright this one can be tricky so we need to isolate the problem between software and hardware.

First, get into the bios and see it's being detected.

If not then turn off the computer and unscrew the drive from the laptop, MAJORITY of laptops only need to have one screw unscrewed to release the drive. If yours doesn't then you'll have to do a little more work, let's just assume you have the majority for now.

Next, pull the drive out, feel free to give the back connector a quick puff of air, now carefully place the drive back into the laptop so that it's nice and tight.

Check to see if that solves your problem.

If not we'll try something else.
