Normal 0 Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly. Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://ca.messenger.yahoo.com/download/ ) set it up as follows:
  1. Click on Messenger at the top left and then go down to Preferences and then the Preference Window will come up.
  2. Next click on Calling and Devices. In the Calling & Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or sound device installed in the computer.
  3. Just below that, go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
  4. Then after completing the Audio Setup, go to down and click on Webcam it should BRODCSAST and you will see your picture.
  5. To Chat, click on MESSENGER and then
  6. After make necessary settings, click on APPLY, then OK.
  7. Then click on MESSENGER and go to my WEBCAM ready to use.
  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

How do I unblock someone on zoosk


If services are paid: You can edit your Block List by clicking on your Zoosk Screen Name on the top right of Zoosk.com and then click on 'Personals Settings'. Next click on 'Block List' and then on 'Unblock' next to any user that you wish to communicate with again.


Zoosk allows you to browse and start talking to other people for free. However, if you continue to use a free account, you will be able to talk to someone only a few times before your conversations become "locked," meaning you will no longer be able to communicate with your special someone. In order to unlock them, you`ll need to subscribe to Zoosk`s paid services.

How to put phone on speaker

Phone keeps cutting out in middle of conversation


You need to ensure that the batteries are fully charged. On the handset while talking, the phone should show how much battery charge is left.
The other thing to check is how far are you from the phone base. For example if your base is on the first floor and you are on the third floor using the handset, then you might loose the signal clarity and eventually loose the connection to the base. To ensure that you are getting enough signal on all the floor, you can purchase a range externder from the manufacturer of your phone.

Slow starting tv


This is common for LCD and plasma big screen tv sets.

If it takes over 2 minutes for the picture to show up, there might be something wrong, at which point you should call/talk to someone from where you purchased it, or contact the manufacturer.

On Skype you can not take pictures of different users while you are talking to them. The only way you can take pictures of yourself is if you are setting you picture that will show up on your profile.
