Sorry if this is a repost but the stupid login just went haywire.

Hey i saw that you had a problem with your affinity dryer ripping clothes in another post. I've had the same thing happen with our dryer. Ours was caused by clothes catching on the lint screen edges. The solution is to lift out the lint screen and use an unwound coat hanger or something similar to clean INSIDE the hole where it came out. When it gets dirty, the lint screen is held up a few millimeters and leaves a gap for clothes to catch on.

I am not familar with AOL but OK with Skype. If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model. Then you need to configure your microphone settings.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek.
If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.

Installed logitech webcam do i need skype to make my call from my desk top


No, Skype is just one of several VOIP applications that let you do video chat.
If you were just interested in video chatting instead of making calls, you can also use programs like Yahoo messenger, Google chat, AOL instant messenger.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Skype's answer:

Video calls are only possible with two participants. Unfortunately, video conferences are not possible at the moment.

Mic wont work when i try to video chat on aol instant messanger


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to besetup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up tobroadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order forthe Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype 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 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 see andtalk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger setit 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.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly soyou can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
