Sounds like you may have lost the driver for the webcam. Probably have to de-install and then re-install. Suggest total removal of the original folder which means using Windows Explorer to do it. This to remove any left-over files that may contribute to bad re-install. Also if the cam is real old, it is possible that the cam itself has finally bit the dust, but before making that assumption, try the re-install.
Let me know what you find out.

Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I have had a Samsung s630 for a couple of years now and it has worked great. All of a sudden the pictures on the screen are looking all washed out with a green tint and appears to have lines through it. ...

If teh photos on the pc still look good the screen is damaged or at least to flatcable from the screen to the camerabody.

If the foto;s on the laptop and the screen look alike then you might try to clean the chip inside the camera. Thats a delicate job and you might let the delaer do it for you.

cost about 50 bucks

Pls let me know if it worked

Check the battery contacts inside the camera and see if there getting a good connection. If there spring loaded you might have to pull up on them slightly to get a contact going for charging. Look for corrosion as well.
