Make sure you have the logitech webcam support software loaded - Microsoft DirectX - version 9 or later.
If you have been using your webcam in another location it can remain hooked up that application even if you exit it correctly.
You will have to re-boot the webcam software by unplugging it for a couple of seconds and then restart the logitech toolbar.
Failing this - reinstall the software

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to download Microsoft DirectX 9 or later to support your webcam

Procedure
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Make sure you have the very latest software

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to run the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click Start, click Run, type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK.

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Configure to Skype

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.

Not working ? - troubleshoot your drivers and software - get your cam working before moving on

Working OK ?

Set your webcam mic as default ( if it has a built in mic

TEST SPEAKERS
Right click on speaker icon in System Tray or from Control Panel
Select "Playback Devices"
The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible
Right click on the volume graph and click "Test"

SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC
Click "Recording" tab.
Right click on the volume graph and select 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'

In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click 'OK'
Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later)
Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays

Restart computer

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'

When i want to take a picture, the picture has a static effect. i tried adjusting the focus lens and seeing if i had any other special video effects on but the staticy picture is still there.


Make sure you have Microsoft DirectX installed - probably version 9 for this cam
You may have to re-install your Logitech software

Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.

Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

For a clean uninstall I would recommend downloading a free uninstall utility
Download Revo - double click on Logitech - Use the 'Advanced' mode - Revo will make a Restore Point and then uninstall Logitech using the Logi uninstall software.
It will then scan your C drive and Registry for all fragments and files that failed to uninstall.
Delete everything it finds

Make sure you check all the software installed on your computer - you may have more than 1 logitech program installed

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 webcam zoomed in for some reason how do I zoom out?


Connect your webcam
Launch the Logitech toolbar from your desktop shortcut or from 'All programs' > Logitech > Logitech webcam software (folder) > Logitech webcam software (webcam icon)
With the toolbar launched - click on the 'Quick Capture' menu ( 2 photo frames picture) and your webcam will start
With the webcam still running click on the 'Settings' menu (2 gear wheels)
Your zoom control will be easily seen and adjustable by ramping the slider up or down.

Logitech C200 webcam


Opting out of Logitech vid will not affect the webcam - I done the same.
Plug in your cam
Launch the logitech toolbar and use the Quick Capture menu ( 2 film frame picture )
If your webcam software is correctly loaded, your webcam should start.
If it fails - you need to uninstall the current software - unplug the webcam and visit the logitech website. Identify your webcam from the picture gallery and click on it to go to the support page for that model
