Question about GE EasyCam Webcam

WebCam Working but terrible image

My webcam is displaying an image, but it is as if one were looking through the eyes of a legally blind person. if it is pointed anywhere near light, there is just a white ball of light, and if covered, the image turns black. it is an older cam, a 3com HomeConnect, and i've just recently connected it to my new comp, installed the drivers and tried to use it after about 2 years of non-use. could the thing just be busted inside? Thank you so much for your time and consideration of this problem.

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.

My webcam iball c8.0 is showing blurr images and is fully blurrr

Webcams are useful in both personal and business functions, from video chatting to video conference calls. When your webcam displays strange colors, it is usually due to a problem that is easily fixed even without advanced technical abilities. By trying at-home solutions before sending the computer or camera in for service, you can save time and money.

Lighting is a common cause of strange webcam colors. When your webcam does not have enough light, it compensates by adjusting settings internally. The adjustments can result in color shifts that are not true to life. Bright, diffuse lighting reduces the workload on your webcam and allows it to display colors as they are. The light source should be behind the computer and pointed at your face to reduce shadowing and provide an even light. Avoid light sources behind you, as they can cause extreme contrast between your face and the light. b> Webcam Settings b> Most webcams come equipped with customization settings that allow you to adjust the display. Changing the settings while watching a preview webcam image can help you fix odd colors on the display. The location of the video settings varies, but is often located in the Preferences, Settings, Configure or Video menus. Adjust the tint, contrast and brightness settings until the image shifts to a normal color scheme. Webcam Drivers b> Webcam drivers allow the camera to function properly. When your drivers are corrupt or out of date, they can affect even the most basic display abilities. Webcam manufacturers publish the most recent driver downloads on their websites, usually on the individual product page, along with instructions for installation. To allow your computer to communicate with the webcam and use the drivers, run a software update to install any recent versions. b> Special Effects b> Some webcams come with built-in special effects that allow you to customize the appearance of the video stream. If an effect was enabled during the last session, it may stay on when the camera is turned on again. Turning the effects off will usually resolve the problem. The location of video effect settings varies by webcam model and manufacturer. Logitech Video Effects are located using the mask button in the QuickCam menu. On a Mac, effects for the built-in iSight webcam can be changed in the Effects 1 and 2 menus in the Photo Booth application. Hope this helps.

Picture quality terrible on Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

You should be able to adjust the focus by adjusting the lens.The little housing where the lens is should be able spin a bit. If you gently spin it a bit, it should change the sharpness of the image on the screen.

I hope this help you.

Webcam is not operating

Do you know for sure your webcam is working? Have a look at this webcam problem fixing article.

At least check:
- the Device Manager to make sure the webcam drivers are installed
- a different program, like SplitCam, to see if the webcam really works
- your webcam settings in the chat program

Try adjusting the focus by rotating the camera lens to the left and right. This is probably your why the picture is fuzzy or blurry. Hope this works for you. Bud

Web cam set-up

Once your webcam software is loaded and working, in most cases the software loaded will provide some kind of display function allowing you to know that the software is working, then load up YM and under the Messenger tab, you will find ' MY WEBCAM '. Select ' My webcam ' and you should start seeing your display while using YM, that is the same display that others will see to whom you give allowance to see your webcam. I.E. you have to personally give each person permission to see your webcam. Until you know more about YM from personally using it and experiencing it, that is all I should say, but I will add one more tidbit. YM 9.0 beta is what I use and I'm quite happy with it as I have better control of the stealth function with it did I had with YM 8.0. Consider that when installing YM
