Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Acer Aspire One, Crystal eye Web Cam - Black/Blue Images

I was initially impressed with how well the built in webcam worked in a dimly lit room... though today it has stopped performing. I am in a well lit room, even have a flash light for extra light... but all i get is an image that looks like i am in a cave.

I can shine the flash light into the camera and it is still black and blue with hints of red.

I would think that maybe the colors were reversed but ive dimmed the lights and it doesnt help so it isn't being over saturated either.

I've reinstalled the drivers... I've flicked the camera... I've tried getting mad... I've tried everything that i can think of!

[of course i have also tried to play with the settings.. gamma, contrast etc.]

How do i get my built in web cam on my acer one to turn on so people can view me

The Acer camera will only initialize if it's proprietary software is running. I believe Acer uses Crystal Eye. Below is the support site for Acer, put in Notebook > aspire > 5500 and your operating system. Scroll down to the Crystal Eye webcam software, download and install. If there are any patches or upgrades, get them too. If you have the software and it has been loaded. The camera has a blue light that shines next to the camera to indicate it is powered. If it does not shine and the software has been initiated, then there might be a problem with the cable that runs from the camera down the right side of the display, through the right hinge and under the keyboard to the socket in the motherboard. I will include the link to the service manual as well, this will help if you have to disassemble or test the laptop.
