How to remove auto brightness feature?


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 When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities.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.

About Our HP Color Laser Jet 5550. There is always a screen (Shade) on the background, It is darker when we print on Art paper. And blue (Cyan) color is very dark.


print out a configuration page so you'll have all your IP settings, then your going to go to the resets menu and click on restore factory settings, this will change all the setting back to what they were when this printer was brand new. This will get your color settings back to normal and if not then whatever color your having problems with will more then likely need to be changed out as it is defective. If your networked you'll probably have to reset the IP, Subnet Mask and Default gateway so make sure you have all that info. your paper tray setting will need to be checked to make sure it's what it should be. Hope this helps and if so, please mark as FixYa!!

I need to know if my Presario CQ50-110US comes with a built in webcam. And if so how do you access it?


According to the HP website, the unit shows as having an HP Pavillion Webcam. I found XP drivers for the HP Pavillion Webcam, but I'm not sure if it works with the Compaq. Try it and see.

Re-start Computer.

CONFIGURE TO MSN

Re-boot the webcam by unplugging and plugging it back in again - Its always good practice to do this before you open MSN. If you have been using your webcam in another program, it can remain hooked up to the old program and you will get an error message " Unable to find webcam or being used elsewhere"

Webcam Connected
Open MSN
Click ( > ) Open Menu >Tools > Audio & Video set-up > Set mic as default and run through audio set-up > Next > set webcam as default and adjust Webcam Settings > Finish
