How to fix upside down camera


When Taking Pictures With The Camera On My Phone They Are Upside Down, How Do I Fix This?
When taking pictures with the camera on your phone, there is an option to rotate the camera's vantage point. Pressing the up/down buttons on the side of the phone (Some phones differ but in most cases this would be the Up and Down Volume buttons) it will rotate the camera. If your pictures are coming out upside down, press the volume button to reverse the direction and try again.
keep the iPhone "right-side up" when snapping photos or recording videos--meaning with the volume buttons pointed down. Why does my iPhone take upside down photos CNET

Acer Aspire 9410 series laptop, Built in Orbicam problem


Hi,

The problem is that another program has gained exclusive access to the camera, it won't be an MS program though, it will be a thrid party program to narrow it down.
To locate it, open up task manager and look at the processes running and end any program like: Printer software, scanner software, any other imaging software...etc

You could also try uninstalling the camera in device manager, leave it connected and reboot the system, windows will automatically detect it again, it may ask for the driver disc again. Then start up the program you want.

Hope this helps....!

Cheers

Aspire 3684 orbicam not working


Please check in device manager, is it there ?
it's supposed to be under imaging device.

If it isnot there, it's mean it's hardware, it can be orbicam cable or orbicam itself is bad.
In this case, try to reseat the orbicam cable, it's beside power button, you need to open the power cover (power cover is long cover where the power button reside), you just need to remove 2 scews on power cover, it's in lcd hinges. there are 2 cable beside power button, the camera cable is the cable that come from lcd, not from uppercase.

if your orbicam is in the device manager, try to re-install orbicam software. if you don't have orbicam software, you can download it from www.acerpanam.com.

I hope this will help you.

Aspire 5610-2762 Orbicam not working


** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will "Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen, click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions.

My orbicam


The symptoms
The symptoms arise when a user double clicks on Acer Orbicam (Desktop icon), and Vista displays the following message: “Acer Orbicam application has stopped working” and needs to be shut down.
First of all, your webcam is still working, the device does not have problems. You can check this quite easily by opening Messenger -> Tools -> Webcam Settings.
Another way is to check the folder:
C:\windows\BisonCam\
There you will find the application “LiveCam.exe”. Run this to check that the webcam device is working fine.
If you don’t have the “BisonCam” folder, this means that your webcam is a different model; I don’t yet have a complete list of all the devices and their relative folders but all notebooks and webcams have some folder so if you look hard enough you’ll find yours.
The problem
There appear to be two factors that can create this problem:
1] The Orbicam application needs the correct orbicam driver to work correctly;
Windows Vista has its own internal driver to install the device, naming it “Acer Orbicam” (great Windows!!) but in this way the application cannot find the correct driver, so Vista returns the error message.
2] If some pictures are present inside “My Pictures” folders, the Orbicam application will fail to start. It seems to be a Vista issue and still needs to be fully clarified.
The problem seems to have been caused by the Vista Upgrade software, which causes the OrbiCam application on certain models to malfunction. However, as explained above, the OrbiCam camera works fine, the software just can’t control it correctly after the upgrade.
Another issue that has added to the confusion here is that there are “more than ten” different types of OrbiCams installed on Acer notebooks. Again as mentioned above Windows Vista has its own internal driver to install the device, and simply calls it “Acer Orbicam” which makes distinguishing the correct driver from wrong one an almost impossible task. If you replace your driver with the wrong one, the application cannot find the correct driver and you get the now famous error message.
Lastly, the problem is restricted to Vista-ready notebooks and NOT native Vista notebooks. By that I mean the problem does not exist with the new Gemstone and TravelMate ProFile models as these were designed specifically to run under Vista.
I know this is no consolation to users with this problem but I just wanted to reassure readers that this issue is not endemic to all Acer notebooks.
Solutions
Currently only 2 notebooks have complete solutions available online. This is because - so far - they are the only “problems” Acer support technicians in Taiwan have been able to fully replicate, analyse and repair.
These “fixes” are not general solutions and ARE NOT OK FOR ALL NOTEBOOKS. This explains why some readers have been getting error messages with the new drivers/applications. The new drivers and applications can be found at the following addresses:
Aspire 9300 at the following link:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
Aspire 5570 at the following link:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5570.html
If your notebook is not one of the two above, read on:
For all notebooks with Acer Orbicam the repair procedure is the same:
1] identify the specific webcam device you have inside your notebook
2] get the hardware description (hardware id) of your notebook’s webcam
3] get the full serial number of your notebook (long alphanumeric code in the bottom side)
4] send this information to your local support centre who can then walk you through the procedure for your specific notebook.
All steps are important because only with the above information can Acer correctly identify the right driver and application for your notebook. Simply sending “Acer Orbicam” as the description, does not help because all the different webcams Acer installed are called “Acer Orbicam” (again, thanks Windows)…
So how do you identify the right one ?
How to get the webcam device information:
Go to “Control Panel”, switch to “Classic View” (the support team still find this way easier and better to work with than the default one) and double click on the “System” icon; to the right you will find Tasks list and below “Device Manager”, click on this.
Now you have the full list of devices of your notebook, look for “Imaging Devices” and double click on this. Here you will find the Acer Orbicam.
542506847_38185ec1b4_o.jpg Double click on “Acer Orbicam” and the Acer Orbicam Properties window appears. There are three tabs : General, Driver, Details
542397216_657b57f5d0_o.jpg Click on “Driver” tab, the important information listed here is:
“Driver Provider” and “Driver Version”
542506947_d280ed5924_o.jpg Copy this info onto a word / txt file or take a screenshot of this window. Just make sure you write down this information. Then click on “Details” tab
542506971_0b3e8f0f00_o.jpg Under “Property” you have a scrolling list, click on it and open the drop down menu.
542507017_6f244cf125_o.jpg On the drop down menu look for “Hardware Ids”. Click on this.
In the Value box, you should find something similar to:
USB\VID_5986&PID_0102&REV_0100&MI_00
USB\VID_5986&PID_0102&MI_00
542397338_1d8c1d1f3a_o.jpg As before, copy these two lines or make a “screenshot” of the window
At the end of all this you will have:
Your Notebook’s Serial Number
The OrbiCam Driver Provider
The OrbiCam Driver Version
The OrbiCam Hardware IDs

Send all of this information to Acer with your support request/telephone call. This should cut down the time it takes them to get you back up and running.

Good Luck, should get your cam going again/Please dont for get to Vote, Thank You.
