Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Web Camera
My LifeCam VX3000 worked wonderfully for a few months. Lately, I plus it into the USB port & it won't connect at all.
When I prompt the Microsoft LifeCam it says "Plug your LifeCam webcam into a USB port..."
It is plugged in!
I've already tested each USB port and it works fine with my printer, ipod, & digital camera.
I'm assuming this is a problem with the plug? Is there any way I can tell or fix this problem without having to get a new cam?
Maybe..look in the end of the cam usb connector, and see if there's any junk or crud in there. use a toothpick(no ear swabs, please) and using a pencil flashlight, peer into the crevice, looking for any obstructions. you could even blow it out with compressed air. I'm assuming that you've had it connected all along, right?
changing those USB connectors is quite tiring, and requires special tools, and loads of patience.
webcams are relatively inexpensive, as you know.
got a backup for your computer?
