Sounds like you have a bad driver. Try this:
Follow the instructions below and it will work.

Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or Downloaded software program.

When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.
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 and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
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:

http://download.live.com/Messenger

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

The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.

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.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the

Hope this helps. Bud

I am looking for someone to repair 4 DCS-6620 cameras. It isn't a sofware problem it is hardware that needs to be fixed. Example camera came off base.


Any luck?
I have 7 of these that need service for one reason or another. They began to fail shortly after the warranty ran out, and have recently begun to fail much more quickly.
Next time, before I buy 62 cameras, I'll make sure I'm dealing with a company who services their product...D-Link tells me they simply don't and that these are $900 DISPOSABLE units.
Please let me know, too, if you can fix these (various problems depending on camera include include motors not working, no image produced, etc)...I can send them wherever they need to go.

Explain how to go about using a static or dynamic link to access a remote computer that has an ethernet PTZ camera from d-link install so that the camera can be viewed remotly.


you need to do some port forwarding and possibly use a static address assigned to your camera.
remotely is this context means being able to access the camera feed when the camera is behind a router. in essence what you are trying to do is this:

camera ------ (private) router (public) ---------- internet ------- remote user.

the private side or your router is the one that you control, the private side is what is known as being "behind the router"
your router requires to be able to forward traffic from the public side for this you need to do some port forwarding.

a practical example that you can follow can be found in this website if you look into the Support Resources>FAQ section under the title "How do I remotely view DCS-6620 or DCS-6620G series cameras that are behind a router or gateway?"

the article from dlink goes like this:

For each camera that resides behind a router or gateway, three ports must be forwarded by the router to obtain both audio and video. If audio is not desired, only the HTTP port will need to be forwarded. The three default ports are as follows:
  • 80 (TCP) HTTP Port (allows access to web-configuration and transmits video if other ports are not forwarded)
  • 5002 (TCP/UDP) Audio Channel Port (transmits synchronized audio)
  • 5003 (TCP/UDP) Video Channel Port (transmits synchronized video)
These port numbers will need to be changed in the camera configuration on each additional camera that is added behind the router. Port numbers can be changed from the Advanced > Network screen.

please look in to the section described within the link to see how camera and router need to be configured.

I hope this helps!

Won't stay on


I just posted a few minutes ago with the same problem. I fixed it myself with no one telling me what I needed to do. What I did was as soon as it starts turning on smack it on your hand a couple times. Make sure you use a bit of pressure. It showed a camera view for 3 seconds then shut off so I did it a couple more times and now It's working again just fine. If you have any questions feel free to email me. Yes it can be a crappy camera. But hit it against your hand a few times and it'll work. Let me know if it does for you.

DCS-6620 locks up and will not Pan and Tilt


From wat ya say it seems to me that you are loosing ya signal sometimes? perhaps a "Better" antenna on the Base unit may help, one with a "High Gain" Also perhaps ya need to check and clean any connections etc. Hope that helps.
