I cant turn it on


Your webcam will start whenever you launch a video chat program like Skype or MSN or a webcam program like Photo Booth or Debut. You can get free download links to various webcams programs here.

In yahoo messenger when i chat it is fine, but when i do video chat it shows error as network error could not connect to server


1) Have a chat with your ISP - I was troubleshooting the same error and found the basic tariff supplied by the mobile phone company did not support Yahoo chat but Skype and Camfrog was ok

2) Check settings
Download the manufacturer's software ( by using the CD or from their website )
Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, unless the software has a feature for this.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so dont be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.
There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well
Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

My green light won't go off on my dynex webcam


It sounds like your webcam software is hanging on to a program somewhere, and the chat program thinks its already in use.
This is unusual, insomuch that the webcam continues to transmit - almost as if its being forced by another program.
I always disconnect and re-connect the webcam to reboot it before going into chat, but its never had the light on.
Have a good scan of your programs to ensure you have no redundant webcam software creating conflicts.
I would suggest you uninstall the software - disconnect the webcam and install new software

Try updating drivers for web cam, or updating chat application that you are using. Does your web cam work in other applications ? If it does then it is more than likely a problem with your chat application and the best you can do is reinstall or upgrade the chat appli.
Good luck.
