Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 (68C-00001) Webcam

1 Answer

I can "start a video call" but when the other party answers, the call ends! Also if we do get a few minutes on the video call, we have no sound or will have a broken word get through now and then. Also the photos go into a freeze frame, changing the frame every 30-45 seconds. These are new cameras and the person I am trying to video call has the exact same camera.

Sounds like an electronic fault. It could be bad solder joint if the turntable has had a recent impact or fall. Otherwise I would suspect a semi-conductor with a thermal problem - getting hot when it shouldn't. Check with your finger for hot parts! Don't burn yourself. If you find one spray with Servisol Freezer Spray. If the instant cool starts it working you have found the faulty part. If it doesn't then it's back to the drawing board!

How i can use video call


Make a video call
When you make a video call, you can see a real-time, two-way video between you
and the recipient of the call. The live video image or video image captured by the
camera in your device is shown to the video call recipient.
25
To be able to make a video call, you may need to have a USIM card and be in the
coverage of a UMTS network. For availability of and subscription to video call
services, contact your service provider. A video call can only be made between two
parties. The video call can be made to a compatible mobile phone or an ISDN
client. Video calls cannot be made while there is another voice, video, or data call
active.
You are not receiving video (the recipient is not sending video or the network
is not transmitting it).
You have denied video sending from your device.
1. Enter the phone number in the standby mode; or select Menu > Contacts, and
scroll to the desired contact.
2. Select Options > Call > Video call.
Starting a video call may take a while. Waiting for video image is shown. If the
call is not successful (for example, video calls are not supported by the
network, or the receiving device is not compatible), you are asked if you want
to try a normal call or send a message instead.
The video call is active when you see two video images, and hear the sound
through the loudspeaker. The call recipient may deny video sending, in which
case you hear the sound and may see a still image or a grey background
graphic.
To increase or decrease the volume during a call, press the volume keys.
To change between showing video or only hearing sound, select Enable or
Disable > Sending video, Sending audio, or Sending aud. & video.
To zoom your own image, select Zoom in or Zoom out. The zoom indicator is
shown on the top of the display.
To switch the places of the sent and received video images on the display,
select Change image order.
Even if you have denied video sending during a video call, the call will still be
charged as a video call. Check the pricing with your network operator or
service provider.
3. To end the video call, press the end key.
? Answer or reject a video call
When a video call arrives, is displayed.
26
Press the call key to answer the video call. Allow video image to be sent to caller? is
shown. If you select Yes, the image captured by the camera in your device is
shown to the caller. If you select No, or do nothing, video sending is not activated,
and a grey screen is shown in place of the video.
Even if you have denied video sending during a video call, the call is still charged
as a video call. Check the pricing with your service provider.
To end the video call, press the end key.
To reject the video call, press the end key, or select Options > Reject. To send a
text message to the caller informing why you cannot answer the call, select
Options > Send text message, for information on the settings, see “Phone,” p. 74.
