Webcam keeps refreshing

When using my Asus laptop's video camera on Skype, for some reason the video refreshes every 5 seconds (it goes completely black, then fades the video feed in, then repeats it after several seconds). Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Check the settings for the autobalancing, something sounds like it's glitched. Also, try the head-tracking. Try turning it off and returning it to normal zoom.

SOURCE: Skype video using Acer Aspire Mini Laptop camera?

If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model. When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.

Cam loses focus on Skype


I have the same exact issue - however, it appeared. In order to understand whether it is the driver/os issue I moved my camera to a different computer - from Windows desktop to Mac laptop. And the issue still PERSISTS. I did not have the same problem in the past few months where I used the exact same setup and the same camera. Thus, it can be that the camera went bad (unlikely) or a Skype issue (likely). I think it might be related to the peer connection re-evaluation that happens in the "~30 sec" interval

I can see them, but they can't see me. What do I need to do?


Hello!
You didn't really give me enough details, but I will try to help you anyway:

  • It might be you need to refresh your camera.
  • I don't know if you used Skype, msn or yahoo, but in either case you need to check if the program is recognizing your camera: tools/options>settings>video setup and see if there is your camera; choose your device and click ok.
  • Sometimes in Skype conversation you need to refresh your camera by clicking on the camera icon two times, or end call unplug and plug in again the camera.
  • The problem can also be caused by slow connection on the other side: their slow connection cannot load the video.
Please, try calling somebody else to see if your camera works with them, and then let me know all the details so I could give you further instructions.
Regards!

Hi, I own a Nokia 5230. Before, I was able to record video smoothly and clearly without any kind of problem. Now, 90% of the time when I video, the video keeps going when recording, but the timer...


check if the phone memory is still at large and so on the memory card to,might so many files from your phone or card that's why the operation took some errors or buffer...

otherwise if this problem took on and so on,better reset your phone or restore it to it's factory default to refresh the memory of the phone and can do the operation smoothly...




if this solution helps....please rate me...thanks

Cant use my usb



Refresh and reinstall USB Ports Of Your Computer Hello there, the other day i tried refreshing and reinstalling the USB ports on my PC, as some of my connecting devices are not recognized. I present the detailed procedure on refreshing the USB ports.
Let’s go!!

Here are the steps to refresh/reinstall/uninstalling the USB ports on the computer.

The USB port needs to be refreshed to make sure that no other device has captured the USB port of the computer. The Mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk; what ever it may be.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager Button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk...USB hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main USB devices at the rear end USB port. As they require more power to initiate.


The above steps are for XP operating system. When coming to the matter of Vista, please note the changes below:
===========================
1) Right-click Computer icon from the desktop , and then click Properties to open the System Properties window, and then select the Device Manager tab.

2) Click the Plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers/Root hub.

3) Click the USB Composite Device entry to highlight it, and then click Remove. If a screen appears to confirm the deletion, confirm the deletion.

4) Disconnect the USB cable to the all-in-one, wait a couple seconds, and then reconnect the cable. This should restart Windows device detection (Plug and Play).

5) A New Hardware found screen may appear, click next through all of the screens that appear for the Wizard to install the USB Composite Device. Click Finish once the wizard completes.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Sounds like your classic driver problem. Look in Device Manager and find your webcam. Right click on it an update driver/reinstall driver.
