Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

1 Answer

ILifeCam vx3000 installed ok, used once and now cannot connect

I installed the LifeCam 2/9/09. Everything was fine, I video called my son, and he me, and the next time I tried to use it, it no longer would connect to call or video call. I have tried to figure it out for days now and still no resolve. I used skype the first time(all family uses it). I also have tried to connect in the windows and it always say no one is available, same issue. I can click on the LifeCam and it comes up and I shows a video. Through Skype I can also see when my contacts come on, but then I cannot connect, nor can they connect with me. I have been trying to figure this out for days and still no resolve. Please help! Thx in advance for your help.

    The answer was not what I needed. I initially set it up correctly or I couldn't have Skyped with my son in Iraq. It was a day later that I could not connect any longer. If the process is the same as this response. Then I don't know what to do because this has been done and it isn;t working. If possible, what is the answer if it worked, and then now it doesn;t? Thx for your response.

Also send this to your family and friends so they have there computer setup properly.

After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  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://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

    Sometimes for unknown reasons we have a glitch in the computer and the drivers are corrupt. The best thing to do is reinstall the CD Software that came with the camera.
    Do this.

    Disconnect
    the Camera from the USB port
    and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software
    program
    . When the program asks you to connect the camera to the
    USB port
    , do so and it should work.


    Then to use it on the Web, do this.

No sound on webcam video call ONLY


You will probably need to reconfigure whatever software you are using for the video call to pull audio from the Onboard Mic from the Cam. If it is not configured to pull the audio from that Mic on the Cam, it may be looking for audio somewhere else. This is sadly an issue with a lot of Video Chat software applications.

Cannot install this hardware


First of all, you might want to read this:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t299686-install_microsoft_lifecam_vx_3000

What system are you using?

Try doing a Google search "LifeCam VX3000 installation" and seeing if any of the documents listed helps you. I am not sure what OS you are using (Windows XP or Vista? Linux? Another?) Others have reported problems too. Be careful about which you do first during setup. Some systems require installing drivers/software BEFORE you plug in the camera, and some require you to install software/drivers AFTER you plug in the camera.

How to get rid of Microsoft LifeCam pop-up


Here is the SOLUTION to rid yourself once and for all, of those Microsoft lifecam pop-ups
Step 1:
Go to
C:/program files/Microsoft LifeCam (if you didn’t understand that, read the next few lines)


Open “My Computer” then click on “Local Disk C” (or whatever your main hard disk is called)
then click on “program files” then “Microsoft LifeCam”
Step 2:
Create a new folder called “pop-up”
Step 3:
Drag the file called “LifeExp” into the folder called “pop-up”
And THAT should solve the problem.
