First, you are NOT the only one. Skype seems to be having issues. I teleconference with Skype 20 times a day. 1/2 the time the cameras work and 1/2 the time it doesn't, and it could be mine or the person I called that doesn't work.
Check and see if you have the latest version of Skype. If not, download and install.
Try your webcam software as if you are going to make a video. If the camera works, it's most likely Skype. If not, start troubleshooting the camera.
Then Disconnect the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD or
Downloaded software program. When the program asks you to connect the
camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Then to use it on the Web, do this. Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with.
Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on
messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video
to function properly. A. Skype Setup:

The camera if Installed

Hopefully you have not loaded the quickcam software yet. If you have, hopefully you only loaded the drivers for the cam and not the logitech control panel for the camera. If you loaded the control panel, it loads everytime you start your computer and runs minimized in the bottom status bar. When you start Skype, it activates the camera and so does the logitech control panel. Thus you have two programs trying to control the cam at the same time and you have nothing but problems thying to get it to work. You will need to right click on the logitech control icon and exit the program before starting Skype. After you start Skype got to tools, options and set your camera and mic. settings from the drop down menu. You can then go to Skype test call and see if the settings are correct. Skype allows you to turn on the video or off when you make calls to others. This is so they can't see you, but you can see them during the call unless they have theirs turned off also. Good Luck, RAC
