Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera

Webcam not showing me as caller

I have a new vx3000. I can't get it to let other people see me. I can see myself. I can see and hear them but it shows a big cross over the camera and 'not connected' or busy on another programme. HB I have never used one before but an IT friend installed it so I think that part is ok. Any help would be great.

Normal 0 See section C. Windows Live 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.

  1. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
  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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Can see and hear other person but can't hear myself or see myself and the other person can't see me


Does the webcam work locally at all?
If not, you might need to install the webcam driver first.
Once the webcam shows up as working in the Device Manager (under imaging devices), you can configure it as the video input source in the chat program.

Are you using Vista? If so go into the audio properties in the mixer and make sure your camera is selected as your input device.

Lifecam vx3000 fails to show caller on screen


Hey,

Displaying the Caller is not related to your computer, if the other person sees you and you can see yourself then the problem is not on your computer its most likely on the other persons computer.



Thanks and good luck.

Caller ID set up and poor audio quality


Set up the callers in your contacts. You must have the area code for the name to show up. You must dial the area code for the name to show up when dialing out.

The hearing problem could be the person you are talking to, if your volume is all the way up. If you are sure that it is you I would talk to a motorola technician. Let me know how it goes.
