    Run a test with another person. It sounds to me that your one experience is with someone who doesn't have their camera on. Have them do the Skype test for Audio & Video. They may have a bad cam as well.

You need to check the Video Settings in Skype.
Start Skype - click on Options - Video Settings and under Automatically Receive Video from - select Anyone or Only people in my contact list.

    No it doesn't depend upon the screen resolution of your computer.

    Check with the other party that they have enabled their in WEBcam in Skype

    Get them to check if their WEBcam works in Skype in the Video Settings.

When i try to start shooting a video,a message is displayed on the screen saying:the tape is locked-check the tab.

The message is telling you that the tape you are using has had the write protect tab removed. This is done to keep from taping over something you want to keep. Try onother tape.
If you know this is not the peoblem (like a new tape) you could hav a problem with the camera

You are jumping the gun here. Try first to see if adjusting the contrast will not solve the "problem".

To LIGHTEN screen display.

Turn calculator ON by pressing the ON button.
Press the [2nd] key and release it (Press it just one time)
Press the down arrow and HOLD pressure (keep pressing).
The screen should start lightening up.
Release the Down Arrow when screen contrast is good enough for you.

As to the user manual, it contains no circuit diagram. If you want the manual to learn HOW TO USE the calculator, here is the link.
