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

Need driver for my Gigaware web cam


The entire installation cd here: http://d01.megashares.com/index.php?d01=6b830bb. It‘s an image file that you‘ll have to burn to a cd. You can use a program like Nero, Imgburn, Roxio, or any other program that deals with iso images. Burn the cd, install the driver, and then start using your webcam!

No sound on my calls on j600


When you make call no body can hear you because there will be mic in your handset it might be in loose contact or the mic is damaged ...

and you cannot hear them because the ear piece speaker is also in loose contact or it is damaged ...

if you are good at opening the handset then just open it and just have a check is there any miscontact in both the mic & the ear piece speaker ...

i think the mic and ear piece speaker are not touching to the circuit board so as it is not in contact you are facing this problem ..
check for the miscontact and solve it ... if they are damaged then replace with the new ones..
while purchasing the new ear piece & mic buy which is compatible to your handset model ..
if you are not good in opening then just visit the technician ...
he will do it ...
The price of the ear piece speaker & the mic are very cheap ...
if you visit the technician then he may take the service charges extra ...

any doubts reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye ..

Please tell me how to install Gigaware PC Cam on my Vista Computer?


This might help, then again it might not. It seems that your comments are well founded regarding this particular cam. Suggestion is either take it back for refund or give the driver below a try. No guarantees provided.
