You do not say what webcam you are using.
For my Logitech
Left click 'Settings' (gearwheel logo)
Scroll down to 'white balance' uncheck 'auto'

Webcam displays colours b> Webcams are useful in both personal and business functions, from video chatting to video conference calls. When your webcam displays strange colors, it is usually due to a problem that is easily fixed even without advanced technical abilities. By trying at-home solutions before sending the computer or camera in for service, you can save time and money.

Lighting
Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu. On a Mac, effects for the built-in iSight webcam can be changed in the Effects 1 and 2 menus in the Photo Booth application. Hope this helps.

Maybe you need to switch to another video recording software instead. Smartpixel might be a good choice for you, it is compatible with all the PC games, and it has a PIC in PIC mode which allows you comment on the webcam while game capturing, it is simple and easy.

Every time I play games on my android HTC EVO 4G,the phone now pauses in an out a lot.


Sounds like you're lagging. Grab a task manager app (I use Taskkiller Free) from the market. Then once its installed, open it up and kill all the programs running in the background. It should fix the lag plus you will have longer battery life as killing those processes reduces activity.


Try:

Taskkiller Free or Advanced Task Manager

Both of these also have widgets so they can be accessed right from you home screens.

Sony MDS-JE 480 'Auto Pause' capability


Most of these decks will simply STOP recording after 22 seconds of no analog or 6 seconds of no digital input; I have not heard of the Auto Pause feature.

Try another recording to eliminate the media as the cause.

Find the two audio OUTs (Left and Right) on the player and plug them into the Left and Right Audio IN's of any available input on the amplifier. It sounds like you're either missing one of the channels or you have them plugged into different inputs.

Sony mds je480 dont know how to switch auto pause off


Most Sony MD's 'Auto Pause' feature can only be turned on & off with the remote. I am still unsure whether this is a feature on the JE480. I am led to believe that it is however you will need an older model's remote to turn it on & off. You need to locate the 'A-Space' button and press until 'A Pause' appears in the display. You can now turn it on or off. Good luck.
