Sounds like maybe another program, something that starts automatically is trying to use the camera, or the drivers have become corrupted.

Try checking all start up programs to make sure nothing is starting and automatically grabbing the camera. Generally only one program can use the camera at a time, so this might be the case.

If you can't find anything, try reinstalling the camera but removing the drivers and reinstalling them.

I can not open the web camera.As soon as i hit the camera button it always says "Web Cam is busy".Please find me a solution


Hello dhungel,

It seems that any application is using your web cam already.
Use the task manager( Ctrl + Alt + Del ) to stop all unnecessary application which you not needed or not know. Then try to run this web cam it should work.

If still its giving problem then check it from Control Panel > Camera, it should work here.

My lenovo y410 integrated web cam is not working after installing windows 7 Think driver is not supporting.Any substitute driver is available? how to solve this problem?


Lenovo 3000 Y410 is not designed for windows 7, I don't think that Lenovo will make drivers for windows 7, you can try to install the Vista drivers. here is the link for 32 bit, they did not release any 64 bit drivers for this model. you can download and save the drivers to your computer then right click the installer then click properties, click the compatibility tab then select run this program in compatibility for Vista Service pack 2. If it still doesnt work you can try to run Windows update and hopefully microsoft have some patch for that.
Hope This help.

My laptop is lenovo y410 i have installed my camera but in un able to use it it shows that no web cam is conected how can use my web cam


Press FN+ESC button on the keyboard to enable/disable the camera. You may download the driver by clicking here and the EasyCapture Webcam software here. Please be reminded that the Lenovo Y410 machine is using Win Vista 32 bit OS that is the only compatible os for the driver.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

Laptop web cam not working


1. Uninstall the driver the webcam
2. Reinstall the driver for the web cam

If the problem persists, buy an external web cam and use it as opposed to trying to fix the one that is integrated in it.

OR

If you are still in warranty try to get manufacturer to fix this problem.

Web cam not working


If the webcam is built-in, try to download the approptiate driver for your webcam. Take note of the corresponding OS (operating system), you must download and install the driver according to your OS. Remove all webcam driver which is not provided by the manufacturer of your webcam, for it might conflict and coz malfunctioning.
In case your laptop was already formatted from its ORIGINAL state (factory set-up), browse on factory website (LENOVO) for its original bios. If all this things failed, it is more probably a hardware or webcam problem...so you must replce it. Please take note the model number of your laptop prior to download and intstallation.
