Try the (blue) FN and the F8 key at the same time, this should increase the backlight. Change the backlight setting when working on battery-power only and the same for working with power adapter.

Tell me how to activate the camera ,because i can see people am talking to,but they cant see me,this is what they tell me.


Hi,

I am presenting below solution by keeping in mind that the webcam software is installed on your laptop.

Compaq laptops come with QuickPlay features that allow you to conveniently access your built-in webcam. Use the QuickPlay software to activate the webcam in your Compaq laptop and record videos and photos right onto your hard drive. The software is straightforward and simple to understand for both novice and experienced computer users.
Step 1 Click the "Start" icon and type "quickplay" into the search field. Click the "QuickPlay" entry that appears in the results. Alternately, press the "QuickPlay" button located near the laptop's display.
Step 2 Click the "Video" icon in the QuickPlay interface that opens, then double-click the "HP Webcam" option in the "Source" window. The image from your webcam appears on the screen.

Do post if you still find problems in accessing the webcam.

Thanks,
Amar

I have a problem in using my webcam,its indicated that i need to turn it on.


You need a program like QuickPlay or Muvee Autoproducer to activate the webcam. When in Quickplay, go to the bottom of the screen, select the icon with a camera, and then choose the device from the left-hand menu.

Press the QuickPlay button (normally located near the display) on the notebook PC to open the QuickPlay application.

Alternately, click Start , type QuickPlay in the search field, and select QuickPlay when it becomes available to open the QuickPlay application.

Click the Video icon, and double-click HP webcam in the Source column.

The input from the webcam displays on the screen

You use, Quickplay, To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut.

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam

Just go to:

C:\Program Files\HP\QuickPlay

and see if you have QuickPlay installed or not.

If yes, then double click on "QP.exe", and that should bring up QuickPlay. And later you can make a shortcut to it.

My screen is black. I think I may have put it in


depending on how the system is set up simply pressing the power button on keyboard or the PC
If you get no response no matter what you try then unplug the PC from the mains for 10 seconds. I have had this once where the ram went faulty and the system ended up needing new RAM but I think this is extremely rare especially in your case.

I have a problem with my webcam sound. I recorded my assignment speech and when i try to listen to the speech, there was no sound coming out from the webcam. i tried everything and nothing worked. Can you...


Hi chinonsobeau,

First off, you to list the model number of your HP web Cam, as well as your OS, and the software you using to record your sound. I will assume that you have Quickplay which HP ususally send out with their web cams.

To access QuickPlay, just press the "blue QuickPlay button" next to the power button. If it doesn't load QuickPlay, just do "Start" - "All Programs" - then you will see QuickPlay listed there. If you still can't find it just do a search, you will find the short-cut. If you still don't find it, then HERE is a place you can download it and use it. It also has instruction on how to use it.

Or sometimes HP sends out Cheese, another camera software. You can download that HERE.

These are the instructions for QuickPlay:

Once launched QuickPlay, click on the 2nd icon from left (between DVD and TV icon), then double-click on "HP Pavilion WebCam" from the left side panel, then you will see the blue LED light lit and you should see yourself on the screen. (Double-click "yourself" to enlarge image)

To take a picture or record video, just press the corresponding buttons on the top. (the red circle icon is for recording video (press "Stop" icon to stop recording), the camera icon is for, well, camera)
Videos and pictures are saved at:
Pictures -- C:\Users\Public\Pictures\My Snapshots
Videos -- C:\Users\Public\Videos\HP Webcam


I'm less familiar with Cheese, so I'll give you their website HERE to go to their support and they can guide you through their program.

Anyway, I hope this helps,

Don't forget to leave a raing,

Thanks

Mark

My webcam wont work on quickplay anymore but it still works on...


take a look into the quick play window ...and see if the preview its marked ..cause if is not ...its shows a black screen ...if this isn't the problem ....just reinstall the driver and it will be as new...maybe that used to work with an additional program that ussually are installed with those cameras...and now it only has the driver working .....but reinstalling all the original programs from the instalation cd of the cam it will bring 'em back ...do not remove the drivers until you are sure you have them on cd..

Blue light is on but when I press on button the screen remains black and tv does not come on


I have had the same problem with my HDTV. Its a Sanyo 42" Plasma TV. Well at first it use to turn black from time to time and then it got more frequent. Well I also noticed that it did that more often during the summer when it gets warmer. Well the way i solved this was to add a fan behind my TV. Something that pushes the warm air out and lets in cooler air would help i think. I think that can work.
