How can i turn on my web cam


If there's a built-in utility,

1. Open the start menu
2. Type "cam"
3. If a utility comes up, use it.

If not, then there's no built in program to use the web cam. You can use third-party software like Skype to use the web cam for video chat.

When i make a call on the skype...the other person sees the pink video of mine ...plus i see myself pink too...what can i do to solve it...My Os win7..


This might be an issue with your web cam settings or the web cam itself. Try going through the options of the web cam to see if there are any settings making the web cam display everything pink. If not then try the web cam in another computer (I'm assuming you have a desktop with an external web cam) see if the video is still pink. If it is then there is an issue with your web cam if not then it is an issue with the settings on your computer

In the event that you are using a laptop with a built in web cam you might want to check if you still have a warranty to get the web cam repaired.

Hope this helps

I have a built in webcam on my laptop and it got reformatted and the program for my webcam is gone but it works on skype. how do i re install it?


If it works with skype, it should run under XP. There are lots of applications that will run it ... To answer your question directly, go the manufacturers web site (which I would have provided had you mentioned the make) and click on the Support tab - find your computer and find your specific driver for the web cam. They may even have a web cam specific application to run it.

Simple.

Thanks for your interest in this web site.
