Problem with acer aspire 5610z webcam

My messengers (icq, msn, yahoo messengers) do not detect my camera, i installed it 3 times, and i thought maybe I should reinstalled it and when I did I get a message saying, please plug in the USB camera before uninstalling, the problem is that the camera is incorporated in the laptop, so I dont know how to turn it on or off. when I try to change the source of the webcam on my yahoo messenger the acer cam doesnt appear as an option, so how do I fix this?

Hello,

Please check that your camera is actually connected. To do this, open the LCD front cover by firstly removing all the little rubber buttons then removing the screws and then gently removing the cover. Then you should already see the camera. Make sure the cable is connected to it and that none of the wires are broken.

The camera is sometimes picked up as a USB device. Make sure you've installed the correct drivers for your device as well. There are three separate drivers for each system being either vista or XP.

If you can't get it going, then most likely your camera or your LCD cable is faulty. The LCD cable contains the cable for the camera thus the camera cable is part of the LCD cable.

I often have problems like this using Windows Live Messenger. What you should do is :

  1. Sign in to your Yahoo Account
  2. Click on Messenger at the top left
  3. Click on Preferences under "Yahoo! Chat" and over "Privacy Options"
  4. After opening Preferences, click on "Video & Voice"
  5. Select the Camera Device you want to use while using Yahoo

Hope this helped!

I have just purchased a Acer Aspire laptop model 5732Z and I can't work out how to switch on the webcam! Any help gratefully received.


When ever a laptop comes with an inbuilt webcam , a default app will be provided by the manufacturer to access the cam.Search for the same and use it. You can also access the cam through control panel.
One simple way is to use a IM application like Yahoo messager or Gtalk which support video chat , it opens up the cam automatically once you start a video chat.. If this doesnt work you may not have the right drivers. Go to the acer website or a 3rd party driver site like www.driveragent.com and update the drivers! Also if running on batt it may be disabled to save power.. right click on my computer click properties and device manager and make sure it is on the list of hardware, or newer verisons of windows control panel > system > Hardware

Hi I have Acer Aspire 5610Z. I change my OS from Vista to XP Pro. Now my webcam doesn't seems working through yahoo messenger. Please suggest.


If you have had the webcam working ok with VISTA and now that you have installed XP, it is not working.
You will need to visit your device manager and look under imaging devices. ( if you can see the webcam or camera, you just need to load software to run your webcam.)
If you have any flags under imaging, remove them and also look for unknown devices, if you have anything under unknown devices, remove that.
Afterward, you should go to the ACER website and download the webcam drivers for windows xp. And install it.
After all is completed, you can go to cyberlinks web site and download ucam.
Hope this helps you.

Cannot communicate with my crystal eye webcam,there isnt even an icon what do i do? I have an Acer Aspire5520-5912.


Hi,

just to be shure your camera is at least installed on the system you should start a msn, icq, yahoo or any messenger that let you use a cam. From the "tools" or "setting" menu you can test the camera.

if the messenger can't find the camera it means that is not just hidden, but is really missing. In this case you should re-install the drivers

Hope it helps...

cheers

Dont know how to operate my web cam.I have a ASPIRE 5315 with the web cam built in


Use a software that you may have got installed. It must be something like YouCam, maybe.

Or use a chat software like Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or ICQ. They have webcam options for video calls. But you can't take photos or videos there.
