Question about HP KQ246AA Deluxe Webcam

1 Answer

I recently bought an HP Deluxe Webcam. I have a Windows Vista, not even a week old. I use the 9.0 Yahoo! Messenger. Whilst camming with a friend, the webcam will lose connection, or say that the webcam is not available. Why? And is there a fix?

HP Deluxe Webcam w/ Vista Home Premium 32Bit - Has Sound No Video


Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

No luck ? download this diagnostic tool and run it through

http://www.download32.com/webcam-diagnostics-d35065.html

Don't worry about the first alert - I always get that.

Webcams run on support software some on flashplayer some shockwave player and some Activex - so make sure these are in place and up to date - check the support software against the machine the webcam works in.

The USB port you are using needs to be checked out as well

Webcam software is notorious for getting locked on to programs that you have been using - I often have to reboot my software by unplugging the cam for a couple of seconds when changing from Skype to Yahoo for example

If the software in the Imaging folder is not being used you could uninstall it in case you have a conflict.

Have you tried to update the driver from the Device Manager ? expand the folder and click on the webcam text - update driver using internet option.
Please post any feedback that may be useful to other users

HP KQ246AA not working with Yahoo Messenger 9


v Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo Messenger in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
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.
Hope this helps. Bud

My web cam wont work w/vista


Yeah I had same problem with mine, when someone tries viewing it, all they got was a black screen too. Downloading an "Older Version Of Yahoo Messenger" wlll not solve the problem, as being "Older" it would be even more less likely that it would have supported you Webcam back then, let alone now.
Unfortunately, just one of those things. You can either Buy a New Cam that comes with Vista Support, Backup your whole system & format the hard drive & install Windows XP. Or you can just sit back and hope that Support will be added for your Webcam in the near future.
(Although 2 yrs later and I still can't see My OLD Webcam listed as compatible with Vista, so may have a long wait).

Gmail does not support video as far as I know. To chat with your friend over Yahoo you need to download the Yahoo Instant Messenger software. Others use the Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Instant Messenger. Skype is another popular Instand Messenger program.
