Question about Philips J44417 Digital Camera

1 Answer

How do i use as web cam?

The manual talks about F5 and F6, but does not actually tell you how to use web cam. It says it can be used as web cam, but there is no button. Can't get other programs like Trillian to recognize that the camera is there. Please E-mail at kat4507@juno.com

    I know it is not that great of a camera, but for 10 bucks, it is awesome. I know the picture is not that great, but would still like to know how to work as webcam. If anyone has done it, please post how. ^_^ thanks

I have one of these cameras and I can tell you that they should be sold in bubblegum machines for $1.00. There really isn't any practical uses for it other than very low grade pics. The manual was very roughly translated into English and hard to understand. As for using as a webcam, you will be very disappointed in lack of picture quality. I tried it through MSN with minimal success. It simply does not get recognized 90% of the time because of the poor electronic interface. Sorry

How do I turn my web cam on my advent lap top


You can turn it on using the function key (fn) and the appropriate F icon. The fn icon is near left Ctrl button.

For some laptops it is Fn+F6 or Fn +F5; hold fn and press the F that has the video camera icon. I hope this helps :)

Ive got a msi U135 with built in web cam how do i switch it on?


Hi,

You are sure you have a webcam, right? In the manual, it shows the webcam as optional. Is a webcam listed on the box, the white label with the serial #, that the netbook came in?

If you do have one, you have to turn it on first. The manual, pg 2-9, tells you how to turn it on. Press the Fn+F6 keys at the same time(or while holding down the Fn key, press the F6 key) to turn the webcam on and off.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

OS load failure.


The bluescreen saying about the ACPI, I had the same problem at work with a older computer. Next time you get the bluescreen read everything it says.

It tells you to press a button, I'm not sure thats why I'm telling you to read the bluescreen (windows 2000 or xp) it was f5 or f8.

You press f5 or f8 I think it was f5 since f6 is to load custom drivers.

So you press f5 when it asks you to press f6 This disables the ACPI subsystem in the setup and you should be able to install windows 2000 without any more problems. If its not f5 read the bluescreen thats where I got it!

Good luck, keep me posted and tell me if theres anything else.
