Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

Logitech web cam

Picture from the camare has been effectivley lost (very dark, blurry, only shows very bright light). Looks like it is out of focus/ zoom, but I'm not sure on these skype web chat cameras it is possible to adjust or if this is something more fundamental: e.g. some mechanical damage. Any ideas about potential solutions for the status outlined above would b appreciated

Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens. This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances. Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.
Connection Issues:
If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video. Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.
Changing Display Adapter Settings:
If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter. For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher. To change the color palette please perform the following steps:

  1. Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."
  2. Double-click on the Display icon.
  3. Click on the tab labeled Settings.
  4. In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).
  5. Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.
Low Light Boost:
If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost." If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software. To do this:
  1. Open the QuickCam software.
  2. At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.
  3. Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".
  4. Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.
  5. If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.
  6. Click OK when your are done.

My logitech webcam is blurry how do i fix that?


Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that you rotate others rely on the software for a good focal length
Launch your Logitech toolbar from the desktop or from 'All programs'
Click on the 'Quick Capture' menu (2 photo frames picture) to start your webcam.
With the webcam running click on the 'Settings' menu (2 gearwheels picture)
Here you can adjust all your settings to achieve the best image

Try turning the round plastic lens holder, some adjust like that. As for the darkness, that's determined by the lighting in the room. Some cams are better than others, but a lot of them require good lighting. Hope this helps.

Hooked up my web cam and picture is blurr


if the webcam is a budget webcam and the picture looks ok when staying still but is blurry when moving, then there is nothing you can do, that is how the webcam is for the fact it is a budge, low price webcam

if the picture is blurry all the time, usually, around the lens, you can turn something to sharpen the picture up, eg, some cameras you turn the lens's basal itself and it move the lens back and forth changing the focus

People say my web cam is blurry when they watch it


you will have to adjust the lens of your cam or do the settings with the web cam
as u say it is 3 years old so it might not be with the mega pixels technology. so it is possible that the person who is watching you might not see you clearly

I suggest that you focus the lens.
On your web cam,where the lens is, can you move/turn a little wheel?
This is the focus wheel.

Or you could try in the webcams settings.

Hope Ive Helped.
