I have a toshiba laptop with a built in web cam when ever i go to it, it only show up purple and green. How can I change the color so that I can see the real picture?

Hello there,

If that purple and green that is showing on your camera is the screen cover, then we can disable that. Go to camera settings/effects/disable the screen cover. If not then go to device manager/imaging device/and uninstall the chicony driver but do not delete, then restart the NB, then try to start the camera.

Hope it works.

How to use the camera

Hi, there are many ways on how to use your built-in camera. One is, you will be needing a third party software inorder to use the camera feature of your computer e.g easycapture software. You can use yahoo messenger and chat with your firends that ha a webcam. All you need to do is to invite them to view your webcam so that you will see each other while chatting. You can also use this link to take pictures of you.

How do I activate my built in web cam? I can see myself on the screen, but how do I contact other correspondents to live chat with live video? I have anAcer Aspire One Notebook.

depending on your IM program you can invite others to view your webcam... if you get a message like 'unavailable' or something like that go to the options of that program at webcam and look at 'Camera Source' ..there is a short list and you need to choose your built in`s name should be on that list..then hit Apply..and that should be it!

I have a 6730s. The webcam just woun't work. It

The webcam software on my Toshiba P200 seemed to be a bit temperamental: the built-in cam (Chicony USB) wouldn't start when trying to start a video conversation on MSN and attempts to configure it gave messages which said it wasn't connected. I cured the problem by going into the windows Vista control panel, opening the Device manager, opening the Image devices folder and uninstalling the Chicony USB camera. I opted not to remove the driver just in case I couldn't get it back again from Internet. After rebooting, the web camera software, a toolbar that comes out of the left-hand side of the screen when you move the mouse there, now seemed to function. The buttons seemed to work OK (they didn't before or were temperamental). On my computer you can also start the software by going into Start / Programmes / Camera Assistant. No idea who the software publishers are. Whether or not this software is running, I can start my webcam using the [Alt] - [F7] shortcut mentioned in the software's help pages.

I am haveing a trouble with my web cam

If your web cam is working on the unit itself but fails to open on chats or messengers, do this:
1. Turn off UAC (user access controls), it should be on control panel, user accounts.
2.Test your webcam if it would work now on chats, if not, proceed
3. Download the latest chicony web cam software on (you must select your exact model)
4.After downloading, go into programs and features on control panel and uninstall the camera software
5. Install now the downloaded camera software
6.Test your cam, it should work now

Hope this helps...

Built In Webcam

Your camera is automatically enabled at windows startup and get reserved by windows driver itself. That is the reason you can't use your webcam. Try to disable this program from running the startup with windows. You may do this from: Start > All programs > Startup right click the particular program that captures camera, and disable it (delete this). This should solve your problem. Otherwise please let us know.
