Camera is blury on Skype

My husband is in Afghanistan and when I talk to him on Skype, I can see him great with his camera (built in on his laptop), but he says my picture is all blury. I can't get it to focus any better with the manual focus. Is there anything I can do to get a better picture for him?

Hi,

What you can do is go to webcam options and check what is the resolution is set to, depending on that you can change it to the best resolution ( preferrabley 640x800).

Regards

Canot get picture during video call.


I guess the obvious question here is do you actually have a webcam fitted? If we assume yes then does the camera actually work? Again assuming yes, and assuming we're talking about skype then go into tools>options>video settings. Your camera should be listed, if it is and you are just getting a blank screen, you could try installing a program like many cam http://download.manycam.com/
Now it gets a bit weired. Open the many cam program and go into sources and select your webcam and (hopefully) it should show it working. Assuming it is then re-open skype as before and select manycam as the camera and it should then work. I've had to do this work around on a few HP laptops where the built in cam wouldn't work on skype.

My aspire 5532 is suppose to have a built in camera on it and i pressed F6 like you are suppose to, to get it to turn on and its not turning on. I will mainly use it for skype during video chats. What can...


I have the same laptop, and i got the same problem with the camera, but see what i found. The built-in camera is located in the same piece of plastic that camera does. Then, if you open/close the laptop so many times, this seems to damage the camera connection and is like it doesnt have any camera. So when i want to use the camera, i simply push with my thumb around the camera, and run the program/chat or anything that i will use the camera. Of course, you first look at the drivers, if correct , then try the other solution i post. And theres no built in microfone. Hope it solve it.

Remove both Webcam driver and skype with a software called Vista Manager from yamicsoft.

Why a third party tools to uninstalled a software?The answer is it will remove even the files or registry key that is concern with that software.

Download the file using the link below

If you are with windows 7 then downalod Windows 7 Manager

Here is the link :
http://yamicsoft.com/windows7manager/software/windows7manager.exe

after unstalling reboot your system.

First installed your webcam driver and check webcam work or not. Then installed skype software.

It will work.

Note: Lastest skype version have problem with webcam synchronisation.so used a little older version.

How do you use a built-in webcame on a sony laptop? how to access it?


Sony Vaio PCG-K35 laptop doesn't have an integrated video camera., so if your coomputer has an integrated web camrera must be talking about a different Vaio laptop model.
The laptop with an integrated video camera will have basic software to use it .
For instance, my VAIO VGN-FW21M came with ArcSoft Web Companion 2, which I can acces from the Programs menu (START/PROGRAMS).
Of course, the camera will also work with other programs that use a video camera (Skype, etc).
Check your laptop manual (you must have a manual file in your computer) for further details or post your correct laptop model so that we can help you more.

The webcam button on my yahoo messenger is gray. It won't let you select it. My husband is in Afghanistan. We used it the other day and he was able to see me. Now it won't work. Help please!


If it is a built-in webcam like in the edge bezel of a laptop monitor, look for a disc from the manufacturer to try and reinstall the driver for the camera.

If it is a camera that you plug into a USB slot, try plugging it into a different USB slot while the computer is on. If Windows doesn't recognize it and install the driver after you've plugged it into a new port, you may need to get the CD that came with it and use that to install (follow directions, which usually include not plugging the camera in until after you ran the CD, or during the middle of it) or if you don't have the CD, you can probably visit that manufacturer's website and download the driver or installation program.

Web cam use with skype


When you sign in to Skype, you'll need to check your settings (the tab where you change your wallpaper, sounds, privacy, etc. You'll find an area for configuring your webcam, just follow the directions and make sure you give Skype the permission to start your webcam. You can also change the settings of your webcam to automatically respond to programs you choose. It's a great cam, I was able to talk to my husband and kids very easily from Sweden via Skype in February, the sound is very good and the pictures are not bad at all. I also can talk to my friend in Sweden, now that I'm home and it works great.
