Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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.


A. 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.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:

1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends. Hope this helps. Bud

When i plug in my usb web cam into my pc, nothing at all happens or pops up. what do i do?


the pc could not recognize your web cam, try to plug out your usb web cam and blow or wipe the usb of your usb webcam. also try to plug it in to other usb port of your pc. if nothing happens, maybe the web cam it is the problem. and just to make sure that the web cam your using is the problem, try other usb web cam to see if its working on your pc. if the other web cam works on your pc, the web cam your using is damage, and if the other webcam is also not working, the usb ports of your computer is the problem.
thank you for choosig fixya. if you have other question regarding to this problem, just post it.

How to plug in my web cam gear head to my computer


Hello,

All you have to do is plugin the USB cable part of your camera to the USB port of your computer and then wait for few minutes for it to install the drivers. If you were provided with a disc with this webcam then you will have to insert the disc and install the camera drivers.

Hope that helps!

Thank you.

I plugged in my webcam but nothing happens


Hi,

Firstly you need to determine if the problem lies with your webcam or with your USB port.
You can determine this by plugging a different device into the same port, such as a flash stick or external hard drive.
Also test your webcam by plugging it into a different computer. If another computer fails to detect your webcam you may have to replace your webcam as they are relatively inexpensive and not worth repairing.

Best wishes,

When i plug my webcam into my USB port, nothing happens. i have made sure it is correctly installed, but nothing happens when i plug it in. What could i do to make it work?


Try plugging it in prior to opening your browser. Sometimes browsers won't pick up a new USB device until they relaunch. When you open the browser go to the webcam test site to verify you can see yourself. If you still can't see yourself try completely removing the webcam driver and reinstalling, either from disk or from Logitech.com under their Support tab.

There are 3 unused usb ports on my hardrive, but when instructed to plug in my logitech webcam nothing happens


Check the drivers in Device manager to see if everything is in order. As USBs are plug and play they mainly depend on the firmware being up-to-date, so it may be worth your while looking at logitechs site and checking out your webcams driver. It is also worth trying the camera on another computer and try another USB device on your own. This will eliminate general issues with the webcam and your usb ports.

USB problems can be quickly narrowed down by eliminating issues, so if these dont work come back with any extra details

Brand new HP computer with Integrated Webcam Not working


Do you have the USB cable connection from the monitor hooked up to your computer? If so, are your USB ports configured properly?
Your computer should alert you with an audible tone indication whenever you connect or disconnect the webcam USB cable. If it is not doing this, The webcam itself may be defective.

Make sure you are using the original USB cable that came supplied with the GoGear, and then try the volume + method again. If the volume + method doesn't work, then there is a problem with the USB port recognziing the device being plugged in - or, the player was physically damaged.
