  • Fluffyone Feb 19, 2008

    I click on the Orbi icon and it pops up but the light doesn't come. It also doesn't show anything. It just shows the pictures I had taken before. I haven't tried a whole lot because I don't know what to do.

Try to unplug and plug the camera cable.
It's near power button, you need to open the cover first and you can see the cable, just unplug it and plug it again.

If this is not working, checked in device manager if your camera is recognised.

If it is recognised and still no display, try to download the application from acerpanam.com, i believe there are 2 or 3 type of camera for 3680, what you need is to get the correct application

Acer aspire 5630 orbicam is not working


From another user:
"open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on."

This worked for me. It is the only thing that has worked!

Acer orbicam - when I try to start up orbicam it says it is being used by another application and that I should close that application and then open oribicam. I have no idea how to find out what...


it is not being used, this is a common fault of the Orbicam, with no answers or newer drivers from Acer, the belo works for me as i have the same problem along with many others.

open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on.

Acer orbi cam not working


Checked if your orbicam is in device manager (under imaging device),
if it still there, you might have wrong orbicam application installed. try to download the orbicam application, there are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5050 (suyin, bison and logitech). try to installed one by one.
or if you can try to reload the whole windows, using alt+f10 during boot.

My orbicam


Hi Fino
There is no guarantee that the camera is working properly.
Is the setting done by you for the screensaver to sync it to your webcam 'coz that might be a temporarirly saved one.
Look for the .exe files of the webcam software in your program files .
And then search using search utility for windows for *.exe files and hope you find orbicam files in the results.
If not then the orbicam software is not properly installed.
So reinstall it.

Waiting for your appreciation.

Orbicam?


because the cam is built in its not as versatile as a mobile cam, but you can turn the cam over 225 degrees to film from the back of the notebook. If using Vista, open the cam software click the right arrow next to record video button and set your personal settings, click record and then any recording will be saved to my videos. You then can import it into windows movie maker and then add any effects to your movie. if you have XP or XP media centre you can use windows movie maker2 and make your video from within the programme itself using the orbicam, without using the orbicam software.
