It may be her internet connection is slower than yours.
when i talk to people in certain countries they complain about my reception but in uk it is fine.
skype and other messengers get better quality when run through a 4m and above internet service.
it may not be your cam at all.

Black vertical stripe on screen, any input


good day sir/maam, the black vertical stripe on screen could either be onscreen data input/output,so check your manual, worst it could be failure of the vertical amplifier stage. It could also be interference. at this point its kinda hard to isolate the problem, only diagnostics tools found on service centers could find the fault. better check your local service shop if they could take a look at it.

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.

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. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
Hope this helps. Bud

42" Panasonic Plasma - Vertical red stripe 6" from left side


We originally had a red stripe roughly 3" wide running vertically on the ride edge area of our Panasonic 52" Viera plasma tv. It has now been joined by a solid black stripe of the same width running from the top to the bottom. Living in Germany and purchased at local PX long enough ago that the warranty is likely expired. Now what?

deight, your set is going into total vertical collapse, either the vertical IC is failing or some support component to the vertical circuit is failing, should not be an expensive repair, hope this helps, BMW Rider

TV LCD THomson 26"


If what your saying is that there are vertical stripes down the screen, You have a screen drive problem my friend. This could mean you will need to change the entire main board, the screen driver board if it is separate on this set, or the main LCD panel itself. These boards do not have any parts available for them and must be replace as a whole unit. Good Luck
