Re: Quickcam for SKYPE
Hopefully you have not loaded the quickcam software yet. If you have, hopefully you only loaded the drivers for the cam and not the logitech control panel for the camera. If you loaded the control panel, it loads everytime you start your computer and runs minimized in the bottom status bar. When you start Skype, it activates the camera and so does the logitech control panel. Thus you have two programs trying to control the cam at the same time and you have nothing but problems thying to get it to work. You will need to right click on the logitech control icon and exit the program before starting Skype. After you start Skype got to tools, options and set your camera and mic. settings from the drop down menu. You can then go to Skype test call and see if the settings are correct. Skype allows you to turn on the video or off when you make calls to others. This is so they can't see you, but you can see them during the call unless they have theirs turned off also. Good Luck, RAC

The easiest thing to try is just disabling "Communication_Helper.exe" in
Skype. Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Advanced, and at the bottom you
will see text that says "manage other programs' access to Skype". Click that and you'll get
a window, which should list "Communication_Helper.exe". Deny access to
that (don't remove it, because it will just come back), and try your
Be aware, however, that this is only a quick fix and does not solve the problem.
When Logitech and Skype have problems like this, they can be pretty
big ones, and can cause performance problems as well as interface
The Logitech QuickCam application software is not
required for the Logitech Camera to function properly in Skype. If you
are not using the QuickCam application for anything else, then you
should seriously consider uninstalling it.
That will solve this
problem, and various other potential problems and performance issues,
To uninstall it just go to Control Panel / Add or Remove
Software (or Uninstall a Program in Vista/7), find "Logitech QuickCam"
(NOT Logitech Camera drivers), and uninstall.
Then reboot to get rid of
the background processes, and test Skype again.
you might want to try and uninstall the quickcam application. as i've researched skype is having problems with certain cams compatibility. just try and uninstall the quickcam application but not the drivers. with this you may still be able to use the quickcam with other applications.
you can uninstall it through the control panel>add remove programs
also if you are using a headset or separate mic and headset with the video call you would want to disable the mic on the quickcam
go into Device Manager and disable the microphone in the Pro 9000
ofcourse this is just some things you can try but is not guaranteed to solve your issue. please let me know if this works. thanks.
Try to check if this issue occurs on Skype only or with all programs
If it is for Skype only: You need to check the Video Settings in Skype. Start Skype > Options > Video Settings > select the webcam that you are using. If the webcam is not on the list, download and install the driver from the manufacturer website
Try to set Automatically Receive Video from - select Anyone or Only people in my contact list.
Yes, I have a Logitech WEBcam (not the same model) and I use Skype.
After you installed Skype then :- To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub.
