Re: scren split into 4 and in black and white.

I am wondering if you have accidentally puy your cam in one of those fun modes like the ones that distorts the picture or turns it into 4 color pictures etc. I don't know what it is called on your model but the menu for this is called video effects. I know where it is on Logitech quick cams but not for yours. I suggest you just try looking at these setting options and see if you can make it change to something else and if so then you are in the right place and just have to find how to turn this off. Let me know what kind of camera you have and what kind of menus you have available if this does not give you a good hint.

Dark picture..not bright picture

The whole point of a webcam is to be able to see the person you are speaking with, and let them see you. When the image broadcasted by your camera is too dark, the person on the viewing end won't see anything but shadows and dark shapes. Learn how to brighten your webcam image so the people you chat with can see you.

Place lamps behind and to the side of the webcam. This casts a light on your face, but the lamps will not wash out the image because they are behind the camera. Turn off lamps that are behind you. You have trouble seeing things when you are looking in the direction of the sun or a light bulb. Your webcam has the same problems. Don't make it stare at a bright light. Open up a white screen on your computer to brighten your face. The white screen will create the brightest possible light from you computer screen and help lighten your webcam image. This option is best when lamps are not available. Open up an empty tab in your Internet browser, or a blank Notepad document, and expand it to the full of your screen. Adjust your webcam settings. The settings available to you will depend on your webcam, but many of them offer a "Brightness" setting that you can increase to lighten your webcam. Open the program that came with your webcam, then look for a "Settings" or "Options" menu. Increase the "Brightness" setting until it has lightened your webcam enough.

Multiple screen coming up in black and white also flickering on and off

I have a logitech quickcam E3500
I have 4 black & white images

I tried downloading older and newer versions of the software, no joy.

From the logitech site, I found this fix:

Go to Start>Run, type "dxdiag", wait for the application to show, then go to the "Display" tab and disable Direct3D acceleration or Directdraw acceleration. Exit. That's all.

I tried it and it works a treat.

Can only get black and white

1. Download and run a utility from Microsoft called AmCap. 2. Run it and select your webcam from the Devices menu. Verify the webcam output is visible. 3. Go the the Options menu and select Video Capture Filter. 4. Make sure that the Color Enable checkbox is checked, and the Saturation slider is in the middle. Or just click on Restore defaults. Hope that helps.
