Question about Logitech Quickcam Chat Webcam

1 Answer

Unable to see each other on Skype at the same time. cameras work.

Hi. I was able to see and hear my friend on Skype, however she could hear me but not see me. I changed my video setting from Bluetooth to integrated web - then she could see me but I couldn't see her. It seems both our cameras are working, but we cannot see each other at the same time. Seems like we have a mismatching setting somewhere. Would love some advice. Thnks

My built in camera will not work with skype. i tried to do a video call with a friend but the camera will not turn on when i pressed the video call button.


The only thing that I can think of is that you also have something else open that is using the camera. Does the camera show up in Photo Booth or ichat? Do you have ichat open at the same time as Skype. Make sure you close ichat, photobooth, and Skype (and anything else that uses a camera) and then re-open only Skype. If you have something else open that uses the camera when you open Skype, Skype will be unable to use the camera.

HP Deluxe Webcam on SKYPE 4.0-friends can hear but not see me.


hello you've probably given up and binned the cam by now - we nearly did. but solved it last night. It's the annoying photo editing program that opens automatically when your camera opens up that's interfering with Skype. called magic-i or something like that. Remove that from your comp and the camera works fine. good luck!!

I am unable to view my picture while working on skype, yahoo or gtalk.


It doesn't sound like the problem is with the device itself. It sounds like you are trying to run the camera in two applications at the same time, or you are not closing down the previous application.

The camera may not have shut off the previous programme you were using. I/e if you have the photo capture feature on you will not be able to use the camera in Skype. Close down the camera windows, and then try skype.

The easiest thing to do is, make sure any other

Skype microphone


When you are installing the skype software, there comes a time when skype will offer you the option to test your hardware. Here you will try out the speakers and mic, and skype will tell you if they are in skype accepted order.
My friend actually installed it not too long ago, and after the install, I saw that skype gave him the option to make a test call right on the program interface window. We used it, and it made a call to a skype computer voice which advised us that if we could hear her talking, then our speakers are fine, and to now go ahead and speak into our mic, if the mic is working we will be able to hear what we just said into it.
That was a great little way to make sure our speakers and mic were in fact working, and they were.
Try that out on your pc and your friend's pc to test components individually. If you are unable to find the test call option, or the option to test components, you can uninstall skype and reinstall the latest version, which may not be a bad idea to preclude any other weird problems which may be at fault.
Hope that helps.
