Microsoft webcam VX 6000. Buzz on video capture

The webcam works fine, the sound is also fine except when I try and record a video capture and then on replaying it there is this awful buzzing noise. I've tried every combinations of speak and mike adjustment and wonder what else I can do?

    Buzzing

  • lewoo2 Aug 06, 2008

    Hi I'm makin a vid using a canon digital camcorder and am having the same problem:



    - audio is fine on the camera, fine on TV

    - audio is buzzing and heaps of distortion on sounds when I capture to the program Ulead video studio.



    I figure it's the connection or a setting on the program??

    any help much appreciated.

    thanks.

I took the cam apart, removed the mic from its seat and gently separated the red and black wires - ran the red one over top the lens and the black one underneath. Replaced the mic, screwed it all back together and the problem is gone. For now. One tip is to record sound using Windows Sound Recorder while you're doing this, watch the input line and when it goes flat you know the buzz is gone. While it buzzez, the line will be active.

All i get is a humming sound from my LifeCam VX-6000


First I would need to clarify if that is the outside sound directly from the device or if that is the sound being recorded through the mic? If its coming directly from the webcam on the outside, I would suggest first testing it on another system then replace it. If its from the recorded sound from the mic, try reseating the webcam usb cable, then try checking the other audio channels that you can access by double clicking on the speaker in the bottom right, make sure the other channels are muted.

No sound on webcam video call ONLY


You will probably need to reconfigure whatever software you are using for the video call to pull audio from the Onboard Mic from the Cam. If it is not configured to pull the audio from that Mic on the Cam, it may be looking for audio somewhere else. This is sadly an issue with a lot of Video Chat software applications.

VX-6000 is not recognized by Messenger or Windows Live


Have you tried to set up the webcam via yahoo or MSN. Go to the options menu and select webcam. It should ask you to select a device to use as your webcam. If it is available select your webcam and continue setup. You will have to do this with both yahoo and MSN

You can download the driver here :- http://www.opendrivers.com/driver/236296/microsoft-lifecam-nx-6000-vx-1000-vx-3000-vx-6000-driver-1.21-windows-xp-free-download.html
the camera has a built in microphone,so after a proper installation you should have the video and mic funtioning.
but in your case, the cam doesn't work, so you have to try first uninstall the driver >> unplug the camera USB port >> then make a restart >> plud the camera back into the usb >> and install the drivers again.
