You need to make sure your webcam is connected to your PC and has power. What is it built into, your monitor? As you posted this in PC Desktops > Generic problem for all PC Desktops. Tell us about your PC and Web cam?

    HEY,
    I didn't deserve the abuse rating you issued me! I was sincerely trying to help you and you rate my honest attempt as "Abuse"? That's not RIGHT!

How do i turn on my webcam?


Hello,

First, make suer you have the camera drivers installed.

Here's how you can use the camera with Yahoo messenger, for instance:

Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already (see Resources below).

Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting.

Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend

Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active.

Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams.

How do i work the webcam on the studio one 19 desktop dell? I see it on the computer but there's no button to press to get it to open and/or work or even get to it.


You should be able to activate the webcam with any webcam enabled software. There's no buttons or anything to "turn it on" as it will turn on with software that needs webcam.

For example, try using it with the video chat feature built into Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, or Windows Live Messenger. They should all detect the webcam automatically and start using it.

Can't use the built in cam for Yahoo Messenger.


Some webcams have this problem in combination with Yahoo.
I was able to fix this by using a program called SplitCam. I allows for webcam sharing, but it also is compatible with most webcams. You can install it and then use that as the video source in Yahoo.
I found a nice description about using SplitCam for this.

Hope it works for you.

Webcam not working. was working fine and works in webcam's own software, but quit working on yahoo and msn messenger


Try uninstalling yahoo then reinstallig it. Yahoo is quite picky about the webcam resources it uses, this will fix it 9 times out of ten.
