    I recently bought an acer aspire 7520 and had the same problem. I even contacted acer and the place I purchased it. No one could help me. I even reset the original settings which deleted everything I had on it. I am so impressed that just moving the pictures from the picture file to my documents file enabled my camera. Thank-you! Thank-you! I attend school on line and live off of my computer. I also had a problem of my cursor jumping. Did anyone else? Oh I tried the downloads they suggested first to no avail.

  • Mich70B May 23, 2008

    First my error was 'camera busy' then (I have no idea what I did) it worked for a short time, now it is not working with the error 'camera not found'.This is driving me crazy - I have tried moving all my pictures to documents as many have suggested - I have also tried 'exon33's advice about Acer E Recovery - but to no avail. I bought two Acer Aspire 5720G laptops at the same time - one has been running like a dream - the other has had nothing but troubles! (work that out??!!) Any suggestions gratefully received.

    I have the same problem again with my Acer TravelMate 6592G laptop. The Crystal Eye webcam stopped working again. It stopped working a previous time as well and I took it back to Acer head office. Turns out that the actual camera was broken and luckily they replaced it for me because it has a three year guarantee on the hardware (I think), but low and behold, I got somebody to update Vista to the latest release. He had to reinstall everything basically since there were so many errors on my laptop, and now it's not working again. The problem with Acer is that they take extremely long to do services. The last time I took my laptop in there it took them 21 days to repair, since they had to wait for spares from overseas. I'm in South Africa and this is really frustrating. :-(

I don't understand what's happened to it? I was taking photos with my girlfriend yesterday afternoon using my laptop's webcam and it was working fine.

  • PhilChandler Jul 11, 2008

    I have an intermittend problem with my Acer "Crystal Eye" software. I purchased an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop about a month ago, and I had no problems with the "Crystal Eye" software whatsoever. I then installed a Logitech QuickCam Pro 5000 Webcam, which ran without any difficulty in parallel with the Crystal Eye.



    I then downloaded Yahoo! Messenger, and my problems began. Whenever Yahoo! Instant Messenger is running, the system refuses to recognize the "Crystal Eye" software / hardware, and I obtain a blank screen when I invoke this tool. The Logitech QuickCam continues to function, however, regardless of whether Yahoo! IM is running.



    Does anybody have a solution that he or she can pass on to me? This problem is a major irritant and is driving me crazy.



    Thank you for your help regarding this matter.



    Yours sincerely,

I used to use this website : www.cameroid.com .....which allows you to take pictures with your webcam, yet it comes up with 'you dont appear to have a webcam' ...... Other people who have had the same problem with their webcam said about removing all photos from the photos section into documents, but that hasn't worked for me. Please Help!!!!

    don't know why my built in acer crystal web cam doesn't work anymore. I check the device
    manager and the application and I can't find it. Is there a way that I can put
    it back or download it from the net?

  • JEM Apr 30, 2014

    first, AntiV may see as malware and remove it. You would have to allow exceptions for the webcam thru your AntiV.

  • JEM Dec 09, 2014

    I have also found in the past (along with these other great suggestions) is that one has to go into the Registry (Da Da Da Daah!); which is very scary to most. **Do NOT do this unless you feel and know you can do. ALWAYS BACK UP the registry BEFORE you edit anything!!** But, in the registry are two places for camera filters (The Upper filter and the Lower Filter). If you remove these filters; uninstall and reinstall with latest drivers, I have found that the crystal eye will work and keep working. Of course remember to download the latest drivers and save to desktop before you attempt any of this. AGAIN, if you do not know what you are doing, get help from a local friend who is savvy enough to do this procedure.

    notorious problem, first have to reinstall webcam, but you have to go into registry and find upper and lower filter and delete. BACK up registry before deleting anything. Then go to acer find your cam softwre and reinstall. AND do not save any pictures to the pictures folder.

If your crystal eye webcam doesn't work, try this.

on your desktop right click computer select manage. when the new menu pops up, click on Device Manager, the right portion will pop up some items. Find and select Imaging device, when you click it, it should show crystal eye camera. then click un-install, click ok and restart your laptop. when the computer starts again it will automatically detect your crystal eye camera and automatically install new driver. this one works, promise. the acers' built in camera always fail, but this trick at least helps. when your camera stops working again, just repeat the steps above. its really annoying but it helps.

This always happens with built in cameras for acer I hope they can find the best solution for this.

ACER Aspire 5737Z – Acer Crystal Eye WebCam camera no found
I had the symptom where ‘no camera found’ and the device not showing in device manager (unless you expose hidden devices, but was visable via non present hardware (exposed via system variable
devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1)
Solution – Disable and Enable USB Controllers
1. From Device Manager
2. Disable and enable the Universal Serial Bus controllers -> Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller – do this for both via right click - disable, then enable.
3. Right Click <YourSystemName> from the top of Device Manager, Click Scan for Hardware Changes.
4. Your ACer Crystal Webcam should now back under Imaging Devices, and working again!
5. Strange but seems to fix it, good luck!
I also pressed the top of the laptop screen to the left and right of the camera at around the same time. Not sure if something clicked back into place, either way above is a simple thing to try... Hope this helps.

Posted on Jan 23, 2010

  • john_curds Jan 23, 2010

    Update to Solution #14. Seems that you need to the uninstall the Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controllers in step 2, then the rescan in step 3 will allocate new IRQs to resolve the conflict problem. Hope this helps.

Re: solution #9: you should post this as a problem, nnot a solution. if your computer boots at all, then you can make a copy of all the programs which are acutally installed on your acer C drive, burning them to CDs or DVDs. Then you will be able to reinstall the program that is not working. I can't remember how to do this, but it can be done. Easier, if your computer boots, try clicking on the backup and system restore after clicking on the world globe at the bottom left corner of your screen, and do a system restore back to a date when you know your computer was still working. If that doesnt work, call Acer help

  • Richard Roberts Apr 17, 2008

    If moving your pictures to a different file does not correct the problem, this may work:
    click on to start, Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery, and
    choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. It will
    extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click
    Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side. That may fix your problem. If that doesn't work, to to Acer to see if there is an update for the
    orbicam (actually, first go to control panel, then check out device
    manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If imaging defices has
    a big check, try reinstalling the driver there.)

My webcam did the same thing. It was saying that the webcam was busy, then eventually said it didnt even detect a webcam.

All I had to do was update it. I went to Programs and saw 2 Acer Webcams listed, clicked one, and it was an update. I updated the webcam, restarted the computer, and it worked.

Chances are your webcam's not installed properly if it's not showing in your hardware devices. If still under warranty, get it fixed. Only other option is to buy one.
For those who do have it showing in their hardware devices, try this site: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/win/153295 It may or may not be of help.
Apparently we were supposed to have been supplied with the program, many complaints the same, the above address takes you to a site with "free" downloads and installations of Acer Crystal Eye webcam programs.
Hope this helps :)

I have
an acer 5514, and my webcam also stopped working. I tried everything to sort the problem with no success. I then removed all photographs from the 'pictures' directory and moved them into 'documents'. I could not believe it, the web cam started working again. As soon as any photographs are put into 'pictures' it stops working again. It seems too simple I know, but it works. Try it.

If you haven't tried this, then do it :) It worked for me:

1. Go to Acers website (http://acer.com/support/download.htm)
2. Choose your continent
3. Choose your computer

Then you end up on a site, where you can get all the driver downloads etc.

Hope this could solve your problem. If not, then try to explain what went wrong :)

I have found that many people having similar problems with Web-cams in general is that Widows Vista needs to be updated to SP1 and then many of yours and everybody else's will hopefully go away. The computer will even boot faster in most cases...

Good Luck,

Windows is finally getting around to working better...

If there where protection faults and not only caused by some webcams it could be happens with any brand or build in webcam , the first thing is to upgrade if there is a eprom memory upgrade allways the (flasable) FIRMWARE, i have had a similar problem with a Creative Labs product years ago it was delivered with a cd with control software but that was not functional on the youngest microsoft windows version, on Internet was new allready new flash firmware for the product to be used for the young operating system software.
Look at out when you buy a laptop or other product ever for the latest revision of software on internet and do not use the cd with programs but download allways the latest from internet , marketing technical solutions as competitive sometimes the brands delivered it with older cd or the seller have had older products on stock have to compete a product while the software is not finished yet. It saves a lot of headaches to there are several ways to solve problems, But the causation is another story which often relies on marketing technical ruse to generate helpdesk costs

For some reason when you format an acer laptop the webcam stops working... Unfortunately there is no solution to the problem... I had it myself 3-4 years ago and after contacting acer they told my that it can't be fixed...

If it isnt listed under hardware then something may have happened to cause the computer to delete the file "virus protection or firewall" and it may be that your computer just isnt reconizing the software anymore. if you have an installation disk try to use it and reinstall the stuff and go from there.

Try to locate the camera driver and do a update also might be a fix download for the Crystal Eye Cam through Acer Or another download site. Another idea would be to get a driver Program which checks all your drivers on the main items like keyboard, web cam , mouse, monitor, graphics the one i use is DriverDetective works great!
