I'm trying to use Skype with a friend and the screen is green where the video should be? What could be the problem?


Check your video camera's settings to see if the right mode is selected and check those same settings within skype. Try rebooting and make sure the camera is plugged in and no other programs are accessing the camera. Try going into the control panel and verfying that your camera is operational by taking a picture or some video of yourself to be viewed in a window. If no matter what you do ends up with a green screen then I am afraid your camera is no more and time for a replacement.

My picture turns to "Green Screen" while video calling on Skype..


sometimes i get similar effects when i use skype or MSN my view goes yellow i think it is due to the age of the model of the webcam, so i recommend getting a better one. If the problem persists then maybe the graphics arent that good with the webcam or the software is dodgy. hope i helped!

Skype does not come up on a Mac(picture)


I have a mac too and am able to skype my mac and PC friends . . . ideally you can go to iChat where you can video-conference more than 2 people (skype, as you may be aware, is limited to 2, for now); but getting back to your 'not seeing each other' problem, when your skype window opens you should see your picture in that window, if you don't, there is something wrong with your camera - make sure the green light at the top of your monitor is on, go to the help or 'settings' menu, and turn it on, I can't recall how I activated mine (when it wasn't on), but the green light must be on; and on the other end, their camera must be similarly on, and often it is as simple as clicking on the blue video / camera icon at the bottom left of the skype window . . . I know often times I am skyping with novice users who have inadvertently 'hit a button' and have disabled their video . . . hope this helps.

Web cam picture is dark green and upside down. EZ-368.


Normal 0 Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work. Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html ) set it up as follows:
  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
Hope this helps. Bud

2 inch green line in the middle of my screen


Looking through a Skype forum thread, there appears to be at least 2 issues. First, for Logitech cam users you can try the following:

- Go to Skype / Tools / Options / Video Settings / Webcam settings / Advanced.
The contents of this window will vary depending on the particular model of camera that you have. If there are options for "Low Light Boost" and "Automatic Gain Control", turn them off. Adjust the manual sliders in the window to get reasonable video quality.

This seems to work for some people.

Then there is the more fundamental issue of Skype driver. Here is the link to the thread (http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=97038) but the essence is that the older the driver the more likely the issue. Even with the latest driver it is not a guaranteed fix, but many people seem to suggest that downloading the latest drivers works for at least some of the time. Clearly Skype have known about this for a while and are dragging their heels sorting it out.

Hope this helps, T.
