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.

The chat appears offline or disconnected


Internets with least connectivity signals are incapable of performing multitasking of media. For example, facebook is made up multimedia that is incapable of displaying allong with chat features also requiring so much bandwith for connectivity to take place. If your internet is in functioning order, that may be the situation. Simply wanting to chat may require closing facebook, and logging onto a least connectivity chat browser. Yahoo may function desireably as replacement condition only without downloading the entire browser compliments. Simply download only the yahoo chat interface with least band connnectivity features. If the computer is connected to phone lines, that is indication of least signal capacity. Alternately, if the computer is using wireless, requesting the chat persons to update to similar internet supports the means to connectivity.

When i installed yahoo messenger 10 and when i open chat box with any of my friend my cam bottom is not active even voice call not active


hi try this one.
Once you have the webcam installed on your computer you have to configure it to whatever chat program you wish to use.

YAHOO MESSENGER WEBCAM

Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Sometimes you may have to broadcast the 'small image' option from the 'Webcam' menu on the top of your image frames. This happens when one of you is down on resources -its like sending a large photo by email - its quicker if you cut the size down
you can zoom up to 200% from the same menu when the webcam picture comes through

Use the 'Always on top' option from the 'webcam' menu - or your image will disappear under the message window when you type a message

In addition to the webcam suppliers software most webcams need support software - this point was probably made when you ran the Dynex CD. I have a Logitech cam and need Microsoft DirectX 10

When trying to chat with someone who is overseas, I can send a chat, but his does not go through to me all the time. It's almost like it locks up. Is this a bad internet connection on his side or is it...


???That means you or him are logging off or getting disconnected. What are you using to chat? I would suggest both of you using yahoo or google talk

In yahoo messenger when i chat it is fine, but when i do video chat it shows error as network error could not connect to server


1) Have a chat with your ISP - I was troubleshooting the same error and found the basic tariff supplied by the mobile phone company did not support Yahoo chat but Skype and Camfrog was ok

2) Check settings
Download the manufacturer's software ( by using the CD or from their website )
Once your webcam is working on your computer,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.

There is a shortcut ( webcam icon ) down by your pic as well

If you complete the above and still have problems - check to see if your cam is compatible with Yahoo

My green light won't go off on my dynex webcam


It sounds like your webcam software is hanging on to a program somewhere, and the chat program thinks its already in use.
This is unusual, insomuch that the webcam continues to transmit - almost as if its being forced by another program.
I always disconnect and re-connect the webcam to reboot it before going into chat, but its never had the light on.
Have a good scan of your programs to ensure you have no redundant webcam software creating conflicts.
I would suggest you uninstall the software - disconnect the webcam and install new software
