Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook
My camera window displays "camera is unplugged pls connect your camera to the computer". I believed i have the driver & software properly installed. What proper procedure should i perform to make my camera work? I have an acer aspire 5600 with built in camera.
** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.
If that does not work then do this:
Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility

My acer orbicam is integrated into the screen of my laptop; Aspire 5610. When I try to open the camera it does so for only a bried moment, then closes. (The settings window stays open).

USE YOUR RECOVERY DISC THAT CAME WITH YOUR COMPUTER to reinstall all drivers and software needed back on your system this will include the drivers for your built in camera.
Before you install recovery disc make sure u back up any data and drivers you might need to keep such as printer drivers.
AFter reinstalling everything from yur recovery disc your camera should work fine if not your camera is bad .

SOURCE: Acer orbicam won't work
Double check that the sam is installed and enabled in Device Manager.
Click Start Menu
Right Click on My Computer and select Properties
CLick the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Now expand the box (click the little + on the left) of imaging devices
If you see your webcam, doulble click on it and look under Device Status and see if it says it's disabled or not functioning properly.
If it is disabled, simply enable it and it should would.
