Follow the instructions below and it will work.

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.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on
top left next to the red X.
2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.”
And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or
friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger

1. On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
2. Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
3. Next click on Enhanced IM.
4. Then click on Audio Video.
5. The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and
video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window.
If you are currently participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display:
You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM conversation before running setup. Would you
like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers
and microphone are working properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
· The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to
first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button. The Audio and Video Tuning
Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
· images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may
appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.

After you get your camera installed properly, DO NOT unplug it from the USB port as it will
cause the drivers to be corrupt and render the camera unusable till reinstalled it properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

How to turn it on


Hi

For some webcams, it is better to install the drivers and software first and then connect the camera afterwards.

If you have installed the drivers and software with the camera connected, disconnect the webcam > uninstall all components of the webcam software > restart the computer > reinstall the webcam drivers and software > restart the computer > reconnect the webcam > (My) Computer > right click on the camera icon at the bottom of the window (scroll down if necessary) > send to > Desktop (create shortcut) > double click on the new desktop webcam icon.

I hope this helps.

I have Logitech 4000 camera and all 5years it works excellent. I use it more times on Skipe with Window Pro. Now I have Window7 and every time, when I use Skipe Ican have only one video call. When I try...


You are right - the camera is not supported by logitech for Windows 7 and I am surprised that you have some level of use with it.
A couple of things you can try -
1) Instead of restarting your computer just unplug the webcam for a few seconds and then plug it back in.
(This will re-boot the webcam software) the same as restarting the computer)
2) Do a quick check running the webcam in Compatibility Mode
Right click on the webcam icon on your desktop or the webcam file from 'All Programs' - select 'Properties'
Select the 'Compatibility' tab
Select 'Compatibility Mode'
Use the dropbox to show the OS you have successfully used before
Click OK
Restart your computer

Cant turn it on after rebot


You can try to restart your computer again and check if you can re install your webcam.
But first before you do that, follow these simply steps:
1.) Check to see if the webcam is plugged in, sometimes you may just have to just plug it in.
2.) Blow on your plug and put inside your pc (restart)

If you have another webcam try to see if that will work, if it does its just your webcam that your using, if not its your computer and you may have to update it.

Webcam problems


this is common problem among HP laptops, even i am getting the same issues every now and then. what to do? if this occurs, most of the time i just restart my laptop and it goes fine again after restarting. if its gone bad, i go ahead and reinstall my webcam driver. you can do this by:
  1. click on start, all programs and hit recovery manager.
  2. when the recovery manager wizard pops up, click on the advanced options button
  3. select software program re-installation and click next twice
  4. select HP Quickplay / DVD play (hp quickplay program includes hp webcam drivers as well). hit next twice
  5. restart your computer.
again, either restarting the computer or reinstalling the webcam drivers work for me. should work for you too.
