I cant open my cam


In order to open your webcam you have to install Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Personal Web Camera driver or software. If already installed just open yahoo messenger latest version and skype, there you can test or try if your installed webcam is working.

I cant get my VX1000 to work with Skype, just get the message Skype does not support your webcam


1) Skype is very picky about drivers - make sure you have the latest also check the 'Readme' link for known issues

Visit the Microsoft hardware support page
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE&type=LifeCam&sku=68A-00001
Fill in the details and click 'GO'
Click on the link:-
"Microsoft LifeCam Readme and Troubleshooting Information"
All the information you require should be found here, Including the latest software to download and Customer Support
Check out any additional software you have to download as well as the Lifecam software.

Procedure
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Microsoft
Run the installer and choose your options when prompted
Connect your webcam when prompted.

2) Do not run the microsoft webcam software in Skype but allow the Skype software complete control

I have the vx-3000. My contacts cannot see me using SKYPE. Is this lifecam compatible with SKYPE?


When using Skype let the skype software do all the work - do not preview your image by using the Lifecam software

Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000-unknown video error on Skype


I tried the skype link given in Solution #1.

None of Skype's suggestions helped.

The problem child: Windows 7 (all updated) and current Skype.

I installed DirectX per Skype's suggestion.

Also found this link to MicroSoft driver for W7:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=ICE&type=LifeCam&name=68A-00001&os=Win7_3264&lang=en

It's working at the moment. But the camera was working previously with this setup. Time will tell.

I am new to using a web cam. I purchased the VX6000 and everything is working, however, the people I talk to on it only see static pictures of me (Skype).


I think what they are seeing is the photo you took with your webcam when you set up your account.
Make sure your webcam is is working OK and then check your settings

  1. Start Skype.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Audio Settings.
  4. Select your LifeCam device as the default microphone. For example, select Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000.
  5. In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
  6. Select your LifeCam device as the default Webcam. For example, select Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test LifeCam by making a Skype test call.

Lifecam VX 6000 and Skype


On the one I just fixed, Skype would not even see the LifeCam. I had to go into the registry and delete the calls for the Lifecam in the run section. Open Regedit, back it up first then delete any referecne to Lifecam in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\current version\run and also HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Current Version\Run

Be careful to ONLY delete the referecnes to Lifecam. If you are nto familiar with the registry you can seriously mess up your file system.
