Using new Satallite P200-1EE, webcam is not connected message with Yahoo Messenger

I am using a brand new P200-1EE with built-in webcam. When chatting on Yahoo Messenger Beta, when pressing the Webcam icon during chat or going thru the Messenger drop down list or Action drop down list and clicking My webcam, error message appears "Your Webcam is not connected". It goes on to say another program is running and preventing it from doing so. Yet somedays i can click the icon and it works fine. So frustrating!!! What is it I need to do.

Re: Using new Satallite P200-1EE, webcam is not connected...

I'm using a Toshiba satellite notebook A200, which I faced the same problem like you saying my built- in webcam cannot operate after I clicked on the drop down list from the windows live messenger to have a webcam conversation. Another program is running the webcam at startup. That program is called Camera Assistant Software which is the conflicting software. Therefore I closed this software and I'm able to use my webcam again in my webcam conversation in windows live messenger. I hope this information will help you.Good Luck!

Hi. You need to configure your webcam with your chat client like Yahoo Messenger or Skype.

How does the camera assistant software for toshiba work?

Step 1 : Open Yahoo! Messenger and then click "Messenger," "Preferences" and then select "Webcam." Choose the option "When I show my webcam, change my status message to," and then enter whatever you want your status message to be in the text field. Then click "OK" to finish changing your status settings.

Step 2 : Choose "Webcam" from your Yahoo! Messenger "Preferences" menu and then click one of the following options, "Always ask my Permission," "Allow everyone to view my webcam," or "Always allow the following people to view my webcam." If you choose the latter you can select, from your friend's list, the people who you always want to allow to view your webcam. From there you can also select "Ignore other view requests," if you don't want to allow anyone else to view your webcam. You also have the option to either choose or not choose to select "If I am in a chat room, allow people in the chat room to view my webcam," by clicking the box. If you want to remove anyone who is viewing your webcam, you can select, "Who's watching me?" to remove their name from your viewers list.

Step 3 :Click "Webcam" from the "My Webcam" options in your Yahoo! Messenger "Preferences" menu, and choose "Statistics. From there you can figure out how much bandwidth you are using, as your connection mode, frame rate, image size and image capture type.

Step 4 : Select "Messenger," "Preferences," and "Webcam" from Yahoo! Messenger, and then click "Camera Settings." Move the slider under "Broadcast my webcam with," to select the between faster-speed transmissions or higher quality images. You can also change image size from this option as well as brightness and contrast. Click "OK" to finish.

Did you install the necessary drivers for the webcam. If not, use the CD that came with the laptop to install the drivers and then try to use it with Yahoo, etc..
