Orbicam Acer 5630 - Still don't see any image

I have installed the latest version , and when I want to check if the camera is working fine, I do it under the MSN webcam setting. But when I open the webcam setting, MSN suddenly stop and said "a problem caused MSN stop working ............... " So what can I do now ? When I open the orbicam, there is only grey screen up there, no image no nothing. However, when I look at the camera on the monitor, the green light is on. So what can I do now ?

I have an Acer Aspie 5571 AWXMI Lap Top. Off late now every time I open the ''orbicam'' it says ''the camera is use by another application'' but there is really no other application which is usng the cam.


1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

This worked for me..
Un-installed the drivers and utilities for the camera.
Went here .. http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5100.html
downloaded and installed the Bison 6.96.0.12a driver. (using the right click as mentioned by TimC).
Tested working fine with C:\Windows\BisonXXX …now just to get it working with messenger and Logitech QuickCAM 10.5 for Vista…I’ll keep you posted.
Cheers

For those still wondering how to get your Acer OrbiCam - Logitech to work, I have searched the world over with far too many times failing to get my Aspire 5670 to recognize and work with its built-in webcam. But recently I was fortunate enough to finally find out that installing the latest drivers didn’t work at all whereas a particular old one worked well both on XP and Vista OS.

You should go to this link:
http://www.driverstock.com/Acer-Aspi...131/index.html

Download the zip file then save all contents in a folder that you will browse to use later.

Do not use the setup.exe from that folder. It won’t work… Just go to Device Manager and Uninstall your current driver of Acer OrbiCam. Then click, Update Driver, and point to the folder of those unzip files. Let it install then restart your computer.

When the computer restarts go to Skype or any communication/camera software you’re using and set the video camera. Voila, this time you will see the video coming on to the screen after about 10-15 seconds of black screen.

I have to thank that site for the download.

Last but not least, please remember that this one driver (version 9.4.0.1120) works very well on both XP and Vista… You don’t need to update it to any other higher version!

As for other Acer Aspire models, just check other pages from that website… I have no way of knowing since I only have my model. But I think you will be able to make use of your OrbiCam once again.

Best of Luck and Enjoy Video Chatting!

Numo

PS I think if you get only that driver file (version 9.4.0.1120) from the link after unzipping, please see whether putting only that driver in a new folder and install in Device Manager will get your camera to work too. If so, it will be nice for you to just upload that driver file and paste your link here so that others can just download this file and not all others from the link above.

Check out this link below, it IS a common problem

5630 OrbiCam


For some reason, moving all of your photos into a new folder leaving the old one empty can fix the orbicam, heavens knows why. if that doesn't work, try reinstalling the webcam sofware as follows: (actually, first go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If imaging devices has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, thten Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery, and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager. Please let me know if that doesnt do the trick.

if your camera is microsoft. you or ms windows installed the wrong driver.
By default, ms windows will installed the driver (microsoft), but it won't work.
Download driver and application from www.acerpanam.com
there are 3 kind of orbicam, bison, suyin, and logitech.
first install the driver and then install the application.
tried with bison first.
