My philips webcam (i have no clue what kind it is, but i bought it a few years ago) was working brilliantly until one day i go on msn to talk to friends i havent seen for a while, and it blurrs. i have NO...


1) Dirty lens
2) Some webcams have a focus ring around the lens that can be rotated to optimise clarity - others rely on the software to achieve the best focal length
Open MSN
Click 'Open Menu'
From 'Tools; navigate to, and click, 'Audio and Video setup'
Click 'Next'
This takes you to the video setup
Set your webcam as default
Your webcam should be broadcasting
Use 'Webcam Settings' link to fine tune the picture.
Some webcams rely on a USB 2 (high speed or enhanced connection) On my laptop I have a mixture of 1.1 and 2.0 USB ports
If I use a USB 1.1 port the webcam quality is poor

3) Test your USB connection
1) Connect webcam and run MSN
2) Navigate to Device Manager
(XP) Right Click on "My Computer" and select "Properties".
In the "System Properties" window, click the "Hardware" tab.
Under the "Hardware" tab, click the "Device Manager" button.
(Vista) Right Click on "Computer" and select "Properties".
Select "Device Manager"

3) Confirm that your device is listed under the USB 2.0 Enhanced Controller
In "Device Manager" go to "View" and select "Devices by connection".
Expand "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)".
Expand "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System".
Expand "PCI bus".
Locate and expand the "USB 2.0 Enhanced Controller" entry (see note).*
Expand "USB Root Hub" and verify that your camera is listed.

Note* Confirming your device is listed under the USB 2.0 Enhanced Controller' may produce a manufacturer listing that differes from the following example depending on the USB chipset that is included on your motherboard. The example shows "Intel" as the chipset manufacturer. When performing this step, please notice the keywords "USB 2.0 Enhanced Controller"

I do have a logitech webcam,but dont have a software to install.where do i get a free software to download?here's my logitech M/N :V-UAM27


Hi,


Here is the things you have to do:

1. Download QuickCam 8.4.8 with driver for WinXP.


2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.

3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder.
Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select Extract to qc848enuoption.

4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.

5. An Driver Software Installationã icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Add Hardware Wizardã¢ï¿½ï¿½ dialog window will appear.

Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.

6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.

7. Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/435/3779&hub=1&cl=roeu,en?section=downloads&bit=&osid=1

8. Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.

My windows xp campaq laptop will not recognize the logitec 9000 webcam software.


Try to install first the driver of the cam which is in your cd/dvd driver. during the setup process, there's a step that ask you to connect the hardware which is a cam and then plug the cam and continue setup, after finishing installation, restart the computer then that's the time your cam recognized, then continue little remaining setup to finally complete the installation.
