    I've had my camera for some time now (worked fine) then it stopped working altogether (fixed my removing Microsoft Silverlight which Microsoft Update had installed) ... now this ... exactly the same problem - black screen saying "No Signal !!" in top left hand corner. Please help

    Same problem, after 2 years w/ DCS 5300G now it says No Signal on screen, no changes and no idea why.

  • Tim Davis Jan 12, 2009

    Same deal here, all of a sudden it says "No Signal" after working fine for 2 years. Tried resetting it to factory defaults, etc. but nothing seems to work. Everything else works fine (networking, internal web server, etc.), just getting the "Black Screen of Death" like everyone else.

I have 7 DCS5300G and 1 of them got the blackscreen, since DLINK has no support at all I decided to gut the camera myself and learn a thing or two... what I found is that there is a small "capacitor" next to the lens' control board, and it was burnt... I
went to an electronic parts store and got a similar one and got it
to work again... I bet your problem is that same one...

    Infyrana can you tell me which capacitor needs replacing? If you know the part number etc. that would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem and D-Link's service department suggested me to send it back for hardware checking. I will send it back and hope they can solve this problem.

Follow these instructions to properly install your camera drivers.
Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and install the CD or Downloaded software program.

Then to use it on the Web, do this.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

Everry time i used web cam black screen appears most time


Copy this site and paste it in your browser address bar and hit ENTER.

http://download.cnet.com/ManyCam-Virtual-Webcam/3000-2348_4-10593500.html?tag=mncol

to your web browser and paste it in the Address Bar and hit ENTER.
Then download the program and install it to start having fun with your camera and friends.

Manycam allows you to use your Webcam with multiple programs at the same time. Broadcast your
Webcam on MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Skype, AIM, Paltalk, and Camfrog all simultaneously. Manycam
also allows you to add cool live CGI (computer generated special effects and graphics) to your
Webcam. Make it appear as if your face or hand is on fire with our "fire" effect.
Pretend you are underwater or make it look like it's snowing inside your house with the
Manycam underwater and snow effects. Add text, graphics, or your country's flag to your video
window.

ManyCam is the freeware tool for you if you use both CamFrog and ICQ, or any other video chat
program, and you want to use them simultaneously. It creates a "virtual" Webcam that
replicates your currently installed camera. It then lets multiple applications
access the video stream without conflict.

ManyCam is compatible with Yahoo, MSN, CamFrog, PalTalk, ICQ, Skype, YouTube, and more. Once
you've installed ManyCam, you need to set ManyCam as the primary input for program that you
want to use. ManyCam will automatically start when you activate your Webcam through that
program. The application includes a bunch of gimmicky features that let you change aspects of
the background and foreground. You can map a new pair of cartoon eyes over your face, and they
track pretty well to your movements, or you can show that your life is hell by replacing the
background with flames.

NOTE: There is an unfortunate toolbar that will install unless you opt out during setup, but
other than that ManyCam is worthy of a Webcam Oscar for cool and useful tech.

Hope this is of some help. Bud

No Video: Black/Gray Screen


Test your hardware here
http://www.testmycam.com/
Click 'allow' in top panel and see if your cam broadcasts in the left panel
If it does - you know your cam hardware is OK and you need to look at the software.

First check the 'Imaging' folder in the Device Manager
Expand the folder and right click on your webcam text
select 'Update driver' and use the internet option

You can uninstall the software from the control panel and download from
the HP website

Black screen


The problem sounds like it is not with the hardware or software - You are able to take pictures indicating the device is on and working.

The problem appears to be with the associated programmes such as Skype, Yahoo. You need to select on of the video chat programmes and select the webcam you choose to work with it.

In any of the video chat you will find it is in options/ settings/ video

Have you updated your operating system? This may run automatically in the background?

It could be your drivers need to be updated...

I would check the device properties in the control panel. Troubleshoot so driver status can be checked...
