    I have the same problem with the same computer and web cam. I checked for updates on driver, but there were none. Sometimes it also says web cam not connected to your system. I cannot start it manually and cannot use it with any applications such as yahoo video.

I can not open the web camera.As soon as i hit the camera button it always says "Web Cam is busy".Please find me a solution


Hello dhungel,

It seems that any application is using your web cam already.
Use the task manager( Ctrl + Alt + Del ) to stop all unnecessary application which you not needed or not know. Then try to run this web cam it should work.

If still its giving problem then check it from Control Panel > Camera, it should work here.

Locked by another aoolication (web cam) please advise


Do you have a fire wall running on your PC. If so disable your firewall and check to see if the web cam starts. If this is not the case do you have any type of internet child protection software installed?

Toshiba satellite a205 webcam says locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
