    Contacts do not have any difficulties with seeing or hearing each other.



    It is only that I can not see them, but I can take a snapshot from them.

Okay, make sure you have your installation cd that the webcam software is on and go to start, go to settings, click on control panel, and select add or remove hardware. Find your hardware in the list that comes up and click un-install. Make sure that the webcam is not plugged into the computer while you do this. After it is finished un-installing, if it does not ask you to, go head and restart your computer. After it restarts, load the software back on and then plug up your webcam. Then start it over and it should work. If it still does not, ask the other user if he can see himself from is webcam on his computer.

Hi!

You have to put the USB cable of the webcom properly in the slot provided in the front or back of the computer. You need a headphone to hear the voice of the person and putting the two wires in the headphone jack. Also check if the webcam drivers are installed. Go to Control Panel >Scanners and Cameras and see if your device is present there or not.

There is no solution as such, but the Messenger team have recently updated the webcam feature to make it more reliable. Update to the latest version of Windows Live Messenger at download.live.com and see if that fixes the problem. However, it could just be a poor connection at your, or your contact's end.

We have a logitech camera and skype. We can see ourselves in the test. We can see and hear one of our contacts. They can't see us, but they can see us. Our other contact can see and hear us, but we can't...


Go into the skype setup and access the webcam from there and test setup sound / picture etc.

Ensure you tick a box that says "Show video as soon as connection is made" or similar.

When I connect with my contact. They can see. I cannot see them


friend, Since they can hear and see you means that your web cam is functioning fine. It is a problem with their webcam. Ask them to go to settings of their IM and set their webcam as their default cam in Video settings. Then only would you be able to see them.
