Skype is very particular about webcams having the latest drivers/software.
Your webcam has no bearing on being able to see your contact - you could still see their broadccast if you had no webcam installed.
I suggest you uninstall the current webcam software and download new 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 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.
Work your way through the tabs and check the 'notes' window for any information

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.

When going into skype disconnect your webcam to reboot the webcam software but do not run any logitech software - allow Skype to take full control.

I cant open my cam


In order to open your webcam you have to install Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 Personal Web Camera driver or software. If already installed just open yahoo messenger latest version and skype, there you can test or try if your installed webcam is working.

I want to chat with my sister using computer with logitech web cam, but unfortunately I cant see her and she cant see me.


What software you use for chatting? Yahoo/Skype/MSN?

Most of the Chat softwares, have an option where you go and choose the hardware to capture the videos from. Probably, something might be wrong there!

I just want to know how to use my webcam


Download and install Skype. Your web cam will be configured automatically. If your family has Skype you can carry on a video call without charge.
Each person needs to have Skype installed but, there is no charge for it.

Web Cam not working... HELP Please


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.

Is your webcam broadcasting? Make sure the window for your cam on their end isn't minimized.

Web cam


No.

Is's ok to have only one cam.

You can see the video from your oposite if they have a cam.
Or if only you have a cam the other party should be able to see you.
