    it sounds like your operating system isnt supported for these options. did you goto the manufacturers website to find out if the drivers are for your OS? also if you are using windows xp, check to see which service pack you have. i know a few customers who came in with service pack 1 still on thier machine... service packs change capabilities like pee changes snow yellow

Maybe there is no software focus - it may have a manual focus ring around the lens that has to be rotated to achieve the best image

My logitech webcam works with logitech software and even with "fre webcam test tool" but not with skype. Under tools, options, video settings it says Skype could'nt find a webcam.


1) If you do not intend to use the Logitech chat feature I would recommend you uninstall the current logitech software and re-install it - opting out of the Logitech chat feature when the option appears
2) Make sure you have downloaded the DirectX support software.

Check out the support page for your webcam by browsing the gallery and clicking on the picture of your model.

My computer says that my camera is working but it doesnt show anything on skype


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.

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.

My Logitech Quickcam for notebooks Deluxe webcam was blurry.

I spent 3 hours surfing the net looking for the answer, only to find a load of vague and technical responses about OS's and other ****. I fiddled about with the focus ring around the lens on my cam, which wouldn't move, so i figured i had an inferior version that had some sort of in-built auto-focus.

Eventually i lost my rag with the poor quality of information i was finding on this issue.

I went downstairs, got my pliers out of my tool bag, and wrenched the lens ring.

It moved.

Camera focused.

Job done.

Voila, no techy **** required.
