The camera is not connected. Check the plugs or the driver is loaded. look in Device manager and see if there is a yellow ! next to it. If so delete it and reboot to have camera discoved. Have the driver installation disk in ready .

I have an hp dv9000 and the web cam only works on yahoo instant message. how can it be made to work on it's own?


To turn on an HP webcam:
1. Go to QuickPlay (press the blue-lighted button above the F3 key (or next to the power button)).
2. When QuickPlay shows up, there is a row of six icons across the bottom of the screen: click on the second one from the left (the one with the photo-movie_reel-music_notes).
3. A window with three 'frames' shows up. On the left frame there are six items: the fifth one should say 'HP Webcam'. Click on it.
4. The webcam's blue LED light should now be turned on. There should be a rectangle with dimensions of ratio 1:2 which should show what the camera is sensing.
5. There is a row of seven buttons above that rectangle: the seventh is for taking snapshots and the sixth for recording videos.
6. Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Public Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Public Videos\HP Webcam
sometimes it doesnt say "hp web cam" it says "usb video device"

Picture back to cam


Launch the Logitech toolbar onto your desktop
On the pictorial menu open 'Privacy Shades' ( the window blind picture )
If you can see the picture with a square red box next to it - click on the red square to replace it with a green triangle
The privacy shade is now off.
