Normal 0 Disconnectthe Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded softwareprogram. When the program asks you to connect the camera to theUSB port, do so and it should work.Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the cameraon your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
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. Yourfriends 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.
Hopethis helps. Bud

I JUST INSTALLED A4 TECH WEBCAM BUT IT DIDNT GET THE PICTURE OR VIDEO WHEN I TURN IT ON WHATS WRONG WITH IT ALSO I TRIED TO DELETE IT IN MY PROGRAM IT WONT ERASED EITHER


Maybe the software you installed is not compatible to your system. Try to install another software for your device. To remove the program uninstall the program to the list of your programs. If it won't work try the system restore and it takes a few minutes. If it won't work again go to the task manager and stop the service of the program the reinstall it, or go to the system configuration and disable the program. if it also won't work reinstall your operating system.
