  • Often when the computer goes into "sleep" mode, the camera may not re-initialize...you can restart and this will do the trick.

  • Also your keyboard may have a Fn key which is linked to the ESC key that which turns the camera on and off, if your computer has this key try it and see what you get good luck....The Fang

I have a lenovo g460e.... yhe first time i use the loptop the built in camera was working..... but after 1 week i connot uuse my cam untill nw i hofe i can fine a solution of my problem of my lenovo. tenk...


Hi,

Please try to use the camera using different applications like yahoo messenger, skype or Lenovo Youcam. If non of them works with the camera follow the instructions below.

Please try Fn+Esc. This function allows you to enable or disable the built-in camera for Lenovo Laptops. There should be a small camera symbol that would appear on the lower right corner of the screen. If the camera symbol has " \ " on it, it means the camera is disable but if not it means its enable.

Check if the camera is seen on the device manager and check it properties. Make sure the camera's status is "Device is working properly". If not download the driver from the link below.
