Normal 0 Disconnectthe Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded softwareprogram. When the program asks you to connect the camera to theUSB port, do so and it should work.Then to use it on the Web, do this.
Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the cameraon your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe 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. Log on to SKYPE and do the following.
  2. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  3. Then click on the Video Settings.
  4. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  5. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Yourfriends 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.
Hopethis helps. Bud

Try adjusting the focus with the focus ring in front of the webcam. That can help sharpen the image.

You can also check solutions for other webcam problems.

In Windows 7, the logon screen usually contains a picture that you choose when setting up the computer and a default user name. Since I purchased my computer from Best Buy, the picture was already set and the user name was simply User.
Not very unique! The first thing I did when I got my computer was to change the user name and change my user picture. That is what I’ll explain in this article.
Change User Name in Windows 7First, click on Start and then Control Panel. Then click on User Accounts and Family Safety.

On the next screen, click on the User Accounts heading at the very top.

Finally, click on Change your account name to actually change the user name. If you want to change the user name for a different account, click on Manage another account.5a8fcb6.png
Now type in the new user name that you desire and click the Change button.

That’s it! Once you click Change, you’ll be back to the previous screen with a preview of the new login screen.

Change User Picture in Windows 7To change the user account picture, simply click on the Change your account picture link in the second step above.

You can either choose from the default pictures in Windows 7 or you can click the Browse for more pictures link. Once you have chosen the desired picture, click on the Change Picture button.
Change/Create User Password in Windows 7If you want to create a password for your user account or change the current password, click on the Change Windows password link.

If you don’t already have a password setup for your user account, you can click on the Create a Windows 7 password for your account link, otherwise you can click Change your password.

Yes more detail is definitely needed, however not ignoring may keep someone else from getting a solution they need so...

Whenever someone's television is displaying a bad picture the order of troubleshooting at home is first source, next signal, then service (what I like to call the three S's).

Personally, in your case natedoggs, I think it is a settings issue. Sometimes I see the pictures on some of these in the store and I frown :( thinking that no one is going to purchase a television with a picture like that even though it is a good television. So, the first thing I do is change the picture mode based on what is being shown.

Samsung's choices are standard, dynamic, natural, movie, game, custom...
I also try turning on/off/high/low the Eco dimming and the dynamic contrast.
If that still doesn't work, I tweak each of the settings until I am pleased. (Then reset picture settings if all else fails).

Back to everyone else: Source - check each device that is attached to the television to make sure you get a bad picture from all of them.

Setting - If all the sources show a bad picture, then do some tweaking like I recommended to natedoggs above

Service - If you are absolutely certain it is not one of the devices or the myriad of settings choices these days, you may have a service issue :(

Overall uploading problems on computer


could be quite alot of things being honest, but will just be a software fault, no need to dump the pc just reinstall windows if you really need to will definely fix the problem, other option to try first is download a newer version of internet explorer and install it might fix the problem,
and in control panel, internet options, set all the security tabs etc to default settings and advanced, reset internet explorer settings, give it a try hopefully will help.

Hello
Your flat panel TVs picture tube base board has soldering loose contact with it. Just unplug your TV from AC mains socket, and open it. Pull out the picture tube base card from the picture tube neck. Pull it out straight, no shake must be there, as it will damage its connecting pins.
Normally, loose sodering are very difficult to loacate, as they will be quite micrscopic in size. Just resolder all the suspected loose sodering point on that board, by applying a little more solder. This will solve your TVs problem. OK.
