Question about Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000 Webcam

1 Answer

Fuzzy picture I've just installed the LifeCam NX-6000 and the picture is very fuzzy with no way to correct it. There is not a dial to turn to clear up the picture and in the lifecam dashboard the option to correct the focus is not available. Any ideas on how to correct this?

My webcam wont work in chatroulette

I had this same problem, its because the driver that comes along with the webcam is outdated. All you've gotta do is google "microsoft lifecam nx-6000 driver update", and you should be able to find a download link from the microsoft site. Once you install the new driver its all good
