First test it on this free webcam test site. If you can't see yourself right away click the drop down box of choicse under the Live Camera window and select your webcam. If you still can't see yourself then you need to reload the software drivers, either from disc or the Microsoft web site.

SOURCE: my computer says that my camera is working but it

Before you can use your webcam in any chat program you have to configure it to that program

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

working OK ?

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.

Sounds like either the Monitor is bad or the Video Card is bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer and if it can't show a display then more than likely the Video Card is bad. If it shows on the monitor you just plugged in, then the original monitor is bad.

When i plug in my camera my computer doesnt do anything and when i play back videos the volume doesnt work


  • Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
    Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

Connecting the Pentax S50 to computer


hi there

there doesnt seem any problem i what youve explained. its just that your saying that it doesnt show any images as fast like before.

i suggest that you use another software which is easier to use and actually is particular to pictures and videos. whenever you connect your cam to the computer, this software will identify the pics inside your cam.

you can download Picasa2 @ filehippo.com which is under the Imaging Tab.

hope this helps you.

fixya!

LCD


The connection between the LCD and the circuit board is loose or partially broken. You will see this symptom more and more frequently as time goes on and eventually the LCD will fail completely. No reason to do anything yet, but eventually you may have to get it repaired. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
