Has it worked in the past? You may just need to tweak settings to get your YouCam working correctly.

SOURCE: I have a compac CQ60 and the webcam has just

Its a geniune problem with HP & Compaq Notebooks with Webcam
At first you need to check whether the Webcam is working through the application sent from Hp's end or not.
For example CYBERLINK YOUCAM or HP MEDIASMART is the name of the application which Hp sents.
If the Webcam still doesn't work through the application sent from Hp's End.
Then Click on START and in start search or run type DEVMGMT.MSC
It would take us to the device manager page.
Locate something which reads as Imaging Devices.
CLick on the + Sign next to it and then right click on the driver that come under IMAGING DEVICES and then click on UNINSTALL.
Now look at the top of the device manager window and locate ACTION TAB,click on ACTION and then CLICK ON SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES.
Now check whether the Webcam starts working in SKYPE or MEDISMART or CYBERLINK YOUCAM.
Now if you dont find imaging devices in device manager then uninstall CYBERLINK YOUCAM or HP MEDIASMART from programs and features and reinstall the same through RECOVERY MANAGER or from the manufacturers Website.
I am providing a link for reinstalling CYBERLINK YOUCAM

SOURCE: my webcam is green whenever i go on skype

You have two possible problems in your camera.

1. Defective hardware - if this is the problem, then you would need to replace the camera.

2. Outdated drivers - you just need to install the updates and viola problem will be fixed.

Here's what you can try:

1. Update the drivers. You can use RadarSync free version to scan your computer so that you will know which drivers to update. You can then search for the updates via GOogle and install them. However, if you don't want to do all the updates manually - then buy the license.

2. If updating the drivers won't fix it then it's probably the hardware part of it and you need to get it serviced.

Try it with another program like skype or google hangout. You may not have the correct driver installed. If that is the case, google the model number of the unit and download its correct driver.

Webcam not work in omegle

Hi, if you have windows 7 on it go to start>device and printers and make sure you see the webcam without any warning icon (yellow or red) on it, if you don't see or see some warning icon you have two options
1-right click on it choose troubleshoot this device and connect to internet and follow the wizard
2-right click on computer icon >manage>device manager >
under imaging device make sure you have your web cam under imaging device icon right click choose update driver connect to the internet and follow the wizard
if you have icon in devices and printers and device manager without any warning icon or problem download some web cam tools from internet or messengers like Skype oovoo nimbuzz or.... and test it there. if you didn't see any icon of webcam with or without warning icon you have problem with your webcam device try USB one and send your laptop for repairing
best regard

perhaps you should address your problem to omegle as it's their interface that doesn't recognise your camera and there are no user settings as I can see. maybe you've got skype running in the background, or some other app that uses your camera - this will prevent any other app from using it.

Camera is not working as i want to do skype. I thought it would automaticly start working when skype was on, but it doesn't. It is a bit confusing how to solve this problem.

You have to configure Skype to work with your webcam.

  • Open Skype
  • Go to Tools menu
  • Click on Options
  • Click on Video Settings
  • If Skype sees you have a webcam that your system recognises, it will display it there. If not, your computer cannot see the webcam.
If the camera isn't detected, you may need to reinstall the camera driver from the laptop manufacturer's website.

I bought a Compac Presario CQ71 with buield in webcam,how do I turn webcam on please

When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default application will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.

One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo Messenger, Skype or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat
