Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Help on stickam?


You need to go to the micro-soft website www.microsoft.com and use their support section and see if they allow you software updates for expanded service with your camera. If they do then you can just download the updated software and start using your camera. If not you may need to check with the technical service and see what they require to get full use of the camera. You can also check the frequently asked questions and troubleshooting sections and see if the problem has been posted with a solution. I hope this helps you with your problem.

Logitech QuickCam E3500 to use with Yahoo Messenger


  • Is there enough light in the room? Flip a switch to light up the room a bit more.
  • Is your camera functioning properly? Try your camera alone; separate from Yahoo! Messenger, using the manufacturer's software that came with the camera.
  • Yahoo! Messenger might have the wrong camera selected. Follow the steps below to change your camera source.
  1. Click "Messenger"
  2. Click "My Webcam.
  3. Click "Messenger" again.
  4. Select "Preferences."
  5. Click "Webcam."
  6. Click "Camera Source."
  7. Click the pull-down menu and select the camera you want to use.
  8. Click "OK."
If that doesn't work, your friend might have one of the same problems with the camera on his or her end. They should try the same steps to see if that helps.
Hopefully the info here will help get things running smoothly!

Life Cam VX-7000 ,Webcam from Microsoft


yooperbud,

Great Idea! When I installed a video capture card it appears Windows Live Messenger has it set as the camera. Open Tools\Audio and video setings... Go to the second page by clicking next. Check to make sure your camera is selected.

Brilliant!
