Question about GE MiniCam Pro HO98756 Webcam

1 Answer

No sound This is so wierd.... When the camera is hooked up to the main computer, the person to whom we are trying to talk to over the video phone cannot hear what we are saying. I then hooked up the camera to my laptop to see if it is a camera issue with the microphone. Since the software isn't downloaded onto my computer, we could only verify that the microphone was working. We figured out that the microphone is working. So I was wondering, how can we fix the problem? Is there something possibly wrong with our main home computer?

    The first day it worked find on AIM. The next day I could see and hear the person I am talking to, she can see but not hear me. The third day she can't see or hear me and the camera is turning on and off periodically. This has slowed up my laptop, support service was useless (won't help if using IMs.). Piece of junk.

Normal 0 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 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 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 see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger 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: You 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.
Hope this helps. Bud

Panasonic kx-tga101s -- problem regarding making conference call - this is very much helpfull. But i have weird problem, i did call 1 person, and then i asked the person to hold and i made the other call....


Some Panasonic cordless phones come with up to five handsets each will need to be properly adjusted. You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with panasonic phones.

Kodak Easyshare Z8612 IS Digital Camera The audio in the videos is very loud and distorted


How close was the person to the camera who was talking? Was it a concert or a loud event?
Also, the main purpose of this camera is photography, so, the audio won't be perfect, but you should still have an audio.

I'm on Skype, and the person I'm talking to cannot hear me. They can hear feedback sounds from their computer and their voice, but can't hear me talk. This a Toshiba with a built in video camera and...


The problem seems to be with your friend's setup, and possibly yours. Try adjusting mic levels and volume levels to where they don't interfere with each other. Ex.--you talk , they hear you at a volume that is too loud and it gets into their mic, creating a loop....feedback. You do the same too. Trial and error. Hope this is helpful.

If you call Kodak, they will have you talk with a customer service person who will tell you how to completely reset your camera. Resets fix more digital cameras than you might think. Give them a try! ~p
