Black screen on web camera

When I invite someone to view my web camera, all they see is a black box. Same thing happens when I am trying to view someone elses camera. I have sound but no picture. It happens about 90% of the time. Some days it works and others just black screen.

Trying to connect


if you are using a Yahoo, MSN messanger or a Skype, you have to invite them to view your webcam or do videoconferencing with the other end.

Hope this initial info helps.

Just let me know for further clarification.

My web cam wont work w/vista


Yeah I had same problem with mine, when someone tries viewing it, all they got was a black screen too. Downloading an "Older Version Of Yahoo Messenger" wlll not solve the problem, as being "Older" it would be even more less likely that it would have supported you Webcam back then, let alone now.
Unfortunately, just one of those things. You can either Buy a New Cam that comes with Vista Support, Backup your whole system & format the hard drive & install Windows XP. Or you can just sit back and hope that Support will be added for your Webcam in the near future.
(Although 2 yrs later and I still can't see My OLD Webcam listed as compatible with Vista, so may have a long wait).

Acer Crystal Eye Web Cam


Look Here:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_2920.html

Look in the drop down list in Drivers and utilities for the ones with CCD in them.
3 different types of camera used in that model.
Bison, Chicony, Suyin.
If you don't know which is yours just try one after the other.
