Re: quick cam shows my tv tuner channel and not my image

Hello igloo,i am nichu
ya this problem is common, although it is not a problem.what's hapenning is that your webcam's source or the channel is changed ,thats why whenever you switch on your webcam you see the tv in your webcam window .
hence to avoid this change the source of your webcam ,chose option other than the tv tuner i.e., the webcam one,which is in your webcam window it is there in your options tab,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,problem solved.

take care
bye and have a good day

Hi my name is Hussainy

check if webcam drivers are properly installed of not...
I am asuming that you are using win XP
for checking drivers right click on
My Computer>Manage> on left side of pane click on Device Manager
then it will show devices connected to your system on right side
expand imaging devices
It should show your webcam there.....

If your cam is present there then you can connect your cam behind and check if any link to the camera software is present in

If its there then you can start your cam from there

if you want to use webcam in yahoo or MSN or any other messenger then you have to login to that messenger and activate cam through that messenger
to use cam with messenger there has to be some one online with you......

if you find this information helpfull please vote.
