Are you running windows? If so try "safely removing the hardware" by clicking on the green icon next to the time. After it says it is ok to remove it, unplug the webca and plug it back in.
If that does not work, go into control panel, system, hardware device manager and look under multimedia or scanners/camers for the webcam. Right click to disable. Then right click to enable again.
If it is still not working after that, I'd try removing the software you use and reinstalling.

How can i use my web cam to my PC?


Position your webcam where you want it. Most people choose to position it directly on top of the computer monitor, because this area is closest to the face and provides the most intimate view of the subject.
Set up an account with Yahoo!. This is a site that allow webcam users to communicate with one another. To set up an account, click on "Create an Account" on the main screen. You are asked to enter your name, birthdate, a screen name and a password that you will use for the account
Download Yahoo! Messenger by going to the Yahoo! Messenger website and clicking "Download." Click "Save" to save the Messenger program to your computer. Wait for the program to download. Click "Run" to install Messenger on your computer. A Yahoo! Messenger icon will be installed on your computer's desktop. Double-click on the icon, and Yahoo! Messenger loads. Log in to your account by typing in your selected screen name and password and clicking "Submit."
Connect your webcam with Yahoo! Messenger by clicking on the "Create and Update" tab on your Yahoo! Messenger software. Choose "Site tools" and "Webcam." Select "Start Your Webcam." Your webcam is now connected to your Yahoo! Messenger software, and you are ready to communicate with others by using your webcam.
Use your webcam. Select "Webcam Upload" and "Broadcast" on Yahoo! Messenger. A webcam window will appear on your computer screen. To share what you are seeing on your webcam with other Yahoo! Messenger users, click on "Chat" and type in the screen name of the user you wish to communicate with. Click "Submit." A new window will open to chat with the other user. Click on the video icon on your chat window to allow the other user to see your webcam. To continue or stop broadcasting, either keep the Webcam window open or close it to stop broadcasting.

In the first place make sure that the PC is free of any driver softwares. If not uninstall the webcam drivers with the webcam disconnected, then reinstall the webcam and then connect the web cam as it will be detected as a new hardware and installed.

Installed logitech webcam do i need skype to make my call from my desk top


No, Skype is just one of several VOIP applications that let you do video chat.
If you were just interested in video chatting instead of making calls, you can also use programs like Yahoo messenger, Google chat, AOL instant messenger.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

I recently just bought a new laptop (compaq presario cq56) it has a webcam and all but its says please turn on the webcam, how do i turn on the camera?


This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows 7 . A webcam is built into the frame above the display screen on some HP notebooks. Since there is no power button or desktop icon for the webcam, the only way to test and use the webcam is to open a webcam application. Many of the applications used in Vista, such as CyberLink YouCam and QuickPlay, are incompatible with Windows 7. However, HP offers the MediaSmart suite for Windows 7 which includes a webcam application. HP MediaSmart Webcam can record videos, take snapshot photos, add text and animations to the image, track your movements with an avatar, and allow you to adjust the settings of the webcam. Many people use their webcam in a video chat. You can use HP MediaSmart Webcam with most third party video chat programs. To learn more, see HP Notebook PCs - How to Set Up the HP Webcam in Your Favorite Messenger for Windows 7 .

Is it possible to use it as a webcam?


Unfortunately there is no camera in the Olympus product line that has the capability to be used as a webcam. Once you connect the camera to your computer the only purpose is to be able to transfer your images from the memory card to the computer. The camera was not designed with any webcam functionality.

Sometimes you can select if it is a 2 way video chat or just a receive (they cant see you) Also check and see if the chat client is configured to use the webcam as its default video device.
