First uninstall the pc camera from your PC. And then again install it with the CD Drive you have received with your pc camera. Install the driver CD of the PC camera with the normal settings. Don't try to customize the settings unless you are fully aware of it. This may resolve your problem. If the problem persists consult a authorised engineer to install it or get your camera or PC checked with an authorised service centre.

Thanks & Regards,

Why cant i access my USB2.0 UVC VGA WebCam

You can't open a webcamera like folder. This kind of devices have no storage or content. You can use different applications like Skype, Messenger or other video capture software to get videostream or capture a picture from your webcamera. You have installed drivers for this device and that is why you can see your camera in Device Manager. Driver job is to control this device on I/O level.Check video options from Tools->Options in Skype and you will see if your camera is working properly.

How i turn the lights of the zs211 usb pc cam?

I am assuming this is an external webcam; not one built into the screen of a laptop. You can disable the webcam until you need to use it. ( START MENU --> DEVICES AND PRINTERS ) You can also ( PRESS WINDOWS KEY + PAUSE/BREAK KEY, THEN SELECT DEVICE MANAGER) From there you should be able to enable/disable webcam with ease. Furthermore, I found a application for managing and controlling the device from the manufacturer. (Not sure how useful the program is, but it's worth checking out) Software Informer Download Remember: If the camera is not disabled any application that uses a webcam can access it. (e.g. Skype, Yahoo, AIM, MSN Messenger)

My a4 tech camera in my pc can't be remove in control panel. is there any other way to remove it?

The camera is a part of the hardware device on your system OS when you install the device to your PC/laptop. You can only remove the software for the device from the Add/Remove Programme utility.

You can uninstall the device from the "Device Manager".

If you do not know how to access to your "Device Manager" for your OS, here a link you can refer @

Hope it helps.

Check the camera if you can see it under the device manager. Go to control panel ans click system. Go to device manager and look for your camera under imaging device. If camera is not present there. Try to press and hold the Fn key then tap Esc key. This will toggle the camera off/on. Your camera should be present in the device manager afte doing this.

My wevcam on VGN-CR510E is not detected? please help!

First check whether the built in Camera is recognized in the Device Manager window under Imaging Devices or USB Controller.

Windows + R Key, type devmgmt.msc to access Device Manager.

If the Built in web cam is detected in Device Manager, then uninstall the Camera Device by right clickin on the device and selecting Uninstall option.

Once you uninstall the Driver, you can download and install the Camera Driver from the following link:

Download and install the Driver in your Computer. Then reinstall the ArcSoft WebCam Companion from the following link:

Then restart the Computer and use the Camera.

If the Built in Camera is not detected in the Device Manager, it means Hardware issue and service would be necessary.

However, you can use a USB Camera and use it with the USB Port in your Computer.

I cant find where the web cam is. can u tell me how to get it set up and where to find it?

From the picture at:

it looks like the web-camera is "top-centre" above the LCD screen, i.e., pointing at the person using the camera.

It should have been automatically setup when Windows was installed.
Access the Windows "Device Manager", and look for "Camera", to confirm that it has been correctly installed.

Orbicam stop working

Check in device manager if the webcam is recognised, it's under imaging device in device manager. if it is there, try to re-install the software for orbicam, if this still not working, reload using alt+10 during boot.
if it isn't there try to reseat the camera cable, it's under keyboard.
