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 (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should 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.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
Microphone
Speaker
Camera
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
Notes:
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.

E410 will not focus when shooting clouds, blue skies, greys etc. Tried all lenses up to 50 - 500mm.


That behaviour sounds quite normal to me, the focus system is a 3 point phase detect ttl system, and when looking at a "flat" surface with no edges there is sometimes no phase to detect. Are you saying it is behaving differently to how it used to behave? In that case reset to factory settings in the menu and if you think it is still wrong maybe your focus system has lost sensitivity, in which case it will have to be repaired by a professional.
Just one thing make sure the camera is clean inside, (DONT touch the sensor).

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

Our cable company just went digital. Since then, we have started having a problem with our 4 year old tv. The screen freezes then goes black at random times. We turn the tv off and back on and it is fine...


First thought would be to have a service call scheduled to check your signal at the TV. The cable co will meter it out. Some companies can do it via phone conversation. I would venture a solid guess that's your problem. Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you troubleshoot further.

Remove the PCB & replace all the button switches one by one with new one. If switches have contact resistance it will mis- behave. It will go random selection. Switches have two way contacts.

Sometimes mouse freezes up. new battery.computer runs on vista. when you want to click on something it works sometimes and sometimes it just freezes


That problem is usually a driver issue. when you plug the mouse the drivers are not properly configured and thus communication between the computer and the mouse becomes eratic. Visit the Manufacturers website and see if they have any updates. Also make sure your mouse is compatible with Windows Vista... Windows Vista did come with quite a few compatibility issues...
Finally make sure you don't have any resource conflicts. Sometimes new hardware can take on resources that are being used by another piece of hardware thus the eratic behaviour

Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam...


Have you tried it with different chat programs? Some cameras work well with one and not with the other (don't know why...)

You could try reinstalling or updating the driver, or reinstalling the chat software.

Xbox 360 controller turns off at random, yet has new batteries


The battery indicator found when pressing your xbox logo button is temperamental. It might say 2 bars, or 3 or even full battery but this is not a good indicator of a full battery.

The problem IS low batteries(or more specifically - bad batteries) - when the batteries become low the vibration function can cause the controller to disconnect. This is happens because the vibration function uses extra battery power.


So basically... Every time your controller vibrates, it disconnects. This occurs when firing a weapon in most games, grenades in COD, landing heavy tricks in Skate 2, the list goes on, you'll find many complaints from people stating their controller disconnects specifically with these events.


The simple solution, turn off the vibration function when this occurs. It'll never happen to you again ^_^

Thumbs this up when it proves correct for you. I'd recommend a recharge while you play pack. ALWAYS by the official products too. They're much more reliable and aren't prone to this kind of behaviour.

Toshiba DVD recorder problem


Generally, this problem is caused by bad sectors or other problems on the hard drive and can be resolved by going into the setup menu and re-formatting the hard drive. Of course, all recordings on the hard drive will be erased, so spin them off to dvd first. Be sure to have unplugged and replugged the unit immediately prior to going into the setup menu (don't try to record anything). If this doesn't work, no-one will repair this unit locally, as it must be returned to Toshiba's(TACP) depot for repair. Best of luck.
