Webcam not working picture is dark

Looks like there is a black piece that is blocking the camera. Is there a way that I can remove the outer part and slide that piece up or down?

Dark picture..not bright picture


The whole point of a webcam is to be able to see the person you are speaking with, and let them see you. When the image broadcasted by your camera is too dark, the person on the viewing end won't see anything but shadows and dark shapes. Learn how to brighten your webcam image so the people you chat with can see you.

Place lamps behind and to the side of the webcam. This casts a light on your face, but the lamps will not wash out the image because they are behind the camera. Turn off lamps that are behind you. You have trouble seeing things when you are looking in the direction of the sun or a light bulb. Your webcam has the same problems. Don't make it stare at a bright light. Open up a white screen on your computer to brighten your face. The white screen will create the brightest possible light from you computer screen and help lighten your webcam image. This option is best when lamps are not available. Open up an empty tab in your Internet browser, or a blank Notepad document, and expand it to the full of your screen. Adjust your webcam settings. The settings available to you will depend on your webcam, but many of them offer a "Brightness" setting that you can increase to lighten your webcam. Open the program that came with your webcam, then look for a "Settings" or "Options" menu. Increase the "Brightness" setting until it has lightened your webcam enough.

Oops, it looks like you have a couple of annoying problems with your Kodak camera.

Is your camera still in warranty by where you bought it (30 days) or the manufacturer (1 year)?

What operating system on the computer?
Windows or Mac?

Brand of webcam?

If you are using Win XP or Vista, goto Start, All programs, look for the Brand of webcam you are using.
Click on the program, there should be a set up window somewhere for adjusting the light levels.

Web camera is not a clear picture


is it because its dark? for this webcam and alot of other webcams, the lighting of the room is a kep factor for the quality of your picture =]
i think the reason the picture sucks and its fuzzy and the playback is slow is because its dark, in your room... theres like a funnel looking thing infront of your lens, try to keep the funnel thing from keeping a shadow.. if you see in the daylight with the windows open or open lighting from the sun, the quality of your picture is bomb =] if this doesnt work, im sorry =]

My web camera not clear


To clear the picture's focus, you should be able to turn the ring on the front of the camera. Did your computer recognize the device when you plugged it in and install all necessary drivers? If you're trying to use it with skype, try to use it just with windows XP and see if there's still a problem. If not then it's skype, and not the camera. Also in the settings of the camera program you can probably adjust the brightness. Try setting it to the highest setting.
