Re: FUN!CAM stops working
Probably has corrupt driver.
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.
Hope this helps. Bud

CONFIGURE TO SKYPE Connect webcam Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly. The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software. If yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.

Did you install the software for the camera?
Was the installation successful?
Did the camera ever work before?
You need to explain in more detail this failure.
The main reason why a device fails to work after having worked in the past is a corrupt driver file. Follow these steps to try to fix this problem:
1) Go to the Control Panel->Device Manager window and select your camera from the listed devices on the right hand pane.
2) Right click your mouse and on the ensuing menu select Uninstall.
3) Reboot your machine.
If the driver files are Ok, the next time Windows starts it will detect your camera and will install the driver. Should it fail to install it, it's because the file is either corrupt or missing.
4) Go to Control Panel and select Add/Remove Programs (XP) or Programs->Uninstall Program (Vista) and select your camera software installation. Upon removal...
5) Reboot your machine.
6) Load the disk that came with your camera and try installing the software from this source, as though it's the first time you're doing it.
If the installation goes without a hitch, then your camera software will run prompting you for certain things, like testing your audio and video settings, etc.
