Re: Caller can't receive my picture

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Thecamera shows a perfect picture on my computer but there is no picture at the other end. I receive error messages that computer is not recognising the camera and there is no video.

Make sure only one program that uses is the camera is open at a time. For example, you cannot use an instant messaging service and Skype at the same time.

I bought a Microsoft Wireless desktop set 5000 with keyboard and mice, I did all the installation process and the devices were working perfectly suddenly the keyboard stop to work I have changed the...

Hello there Mauricio,

Try to re-sync the keyboard to the base but first, keep away any wireless device like your mouse from the receiver. Make sure your keyboard is just near the base.

Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. Follow the instructions on the dialog box that might appear. If there is no dialog box, press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the keyboard. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful.

If the resynchronization fails, try to reinstall everything and make sure you are installing the correct driver for your OS.

If it is only the keyboard that suddenly stopped working? You might want to ask for a replacement since it is still under warranty.

Try re-setting up your webcam by going to Tools > Options > General > Video Settings.  Also check the cable connections from your webcam to your computer.

A few suggestions... as the problem can be anything at this point.

1. Do you have a firewall? Is the firewall blocking skype from receiving video? (

2. Do you and the other caller have the latest version of skype? Same version for each of you.

3. Check the other callers configurations. As he/she might be able to preview themselves in the "Preview Window" for their webcam but he/she might not be sending video to you.
