Hi. I suggest you try to press and hold the Function(Fn) button then press the Escape(Esc) button on your keyboard to enable or disable your webcam, when you press the Fn+Esc key it will show you a confirmation if your webcam is ON or OFF, after that try using it again with skype. Hope This Helps

Go to Lenovo manufacture site & in the download option, select your model number.

After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.

Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.

After complete download, install supported driver for your Lenovo laptop webcam.

After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your
webcam is working properly or not.

I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if there is not any hardware issue.

Feel free to get technical assistance at http://www.vtechsquad.com/lenovo-support/ if you get any issue with your Lenovo laptop/desktop.

Unable to detect webcam on aa Toshiba laaptop while using skype


Make sure the WEBcam driver is installed.
When the WEBcam works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the installed WEBcam - Save the settings.

As you haven't responded to my clarification request I will just give you a typical set up example for audio.
Typical audio set up

Laptop x webcam/mic x Vista x Skype
If you have an earlier OS, you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel.

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"
Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
To set required mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties"
In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click OK
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
Restart computer
CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
CONFIGURE TO SKYPE
Connect webcam
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start (To reboot the webcam software) - if you have been using it elsewhere the SKYPE software may have difficulty in locating it, even if you exited the previous program correctly.
The reason being, the webcam software can remain hooked-up to a program and needs to be rebooted.
Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in to reboot the software.
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.

Start Skype.
On the 'Tools' menu, click 'Options'.
In the navigation pane of the Skype 'Options' window, click 'Audio Settings'
Run down the list setting your defaults
Select your webcam as the default microphone.
Make a free test call
Click 'Save'
In the navigation pane of the Skype Options window, click Video Settings.
This will launch your webcam
Adjust quality of picture in 'Settings'
Check the correct webcam is shown as default
Click Save
Test your webcam by making a Skype test call.

Do i have to pay a fee before i can talk to friends by video webcam??? if not how do i get on line??


Hello,
You dont have to pay any fees for using your webcam in skype. Your system would have already configured your webcam with skype. So during the call there will be a video button which you have to click to start your video.
If your webcam is not detected, go to video settings and set your webcam using the dropdown listbox in video settings.

Good luck,
Jegan
