Re: quick cam

Hi, First verify that your camera is plug in to your USB port, likewise check if it is correctly installed by right clicking on My Computer, click on Properties, click on Hardware tab, click on Device Manager Button, expand your Imaging Devices, see if your camera is listed. If it is,make sure it does not have any yellow or red mark. In Control Panel, go to Scanner and Cameras, right click on your camera, Properties, click Test Scanners and Camera button, Windows will perform a diagnostic test. Left click on My Computer, under Scanners * Cameras, click on your camera. You should be able to view what your camera is seeing. If you're using Yahoo Messenger, click on Messenger, scroll down to and click My Webcam. In the camera view window, click on File, Preferences. In the Yahoo Messnger Preferences, scroll down to and click WebCam. Click on Camera Source button, choose your camera, OK. Click on Camera Settings button, adjust Camera Controls to your preference, Apply, OK. If the camera is not in any of the four above, you may need to re-install using the CD that came with the camera. Good luck and post back how things are and/or should you need further information. kind regards.

I have no cd to download my quick cam

Unplug your cam
uninstall any current webcam software
restart your computer
visit the logitech website - identify your cam and click on the picture,en?prodcrid=405
download the installer.
run the installation set up and note the options - you may not want the Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon is a must.
Note - you will also need DirectX download to support your webcam - this is probably covered in the installer
Connect your webcam when prompted.

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 problem is that the camera is just a camera... there is no microphone on it.
