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:
After downloading and installing Skype

set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger

set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on "Open the call setup assistant" and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:

On the VIM sign-in window click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.
The Audi Video drop downs are
The audio and camera should function now.
Additional information to use with VIM settings.
Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window. If you are currently
Participating in an AOL Live Video IM session, a message will display: You must disconnect the current AOL Live Video IM
Conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.
The first time you use AOL Live Video IM, a message will display: Would you like to first check your audio and video settings? Click the Yes button.
The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working properly.
Follow the on-screen prompts.
images in AOL Live Video IM may appear reversed, or as a mirror image (text may appear backwards) when you look at your own camera feed or at the
Picture-in-picture (PIP) display.
After making the settings your ready for a chat and video talk with your Family and Friends.
Hope this helps. Bud

Timing chain went out

I am curious as to what you removed to check the timing chain. If you removed a valve cover or peaked inside a breather hole to see the rockers, there are other reasons for a no start.

The DOHC double cam engine has timing problems due to "cam phasers". You can find internet articles about this problem.

If unsure about the no start cause, try checking for fuel pressure. A simple reset of the Inertia switch fixes many no start problems by restoring power to the fuel pump.

The dual cam timing chain requires a lot of work to service. If the problem is the "cam phasers" , there are cheater tools which save considerable time and money to switch using shortcuts.

You also may have a bad fuel pump relay if you find the Inertia switch is not the problem and you can not hear the fuelpump run.

I dropped my camera into the sand today and it works fne but it wont zoom, is there anyhting i can do to fix it or at least get the sand out?

It may not be bad news, but it's not good - you probably knew that, right? Personally, I would use a vacuum cleaner and a lot of patience! Obviously try to keep the lens pointing down, so that sand tends to fall out, rather than in.

This is a huge subject and lots of people have trouble with it. This is such a common problem that someone has written a blog just addressing this one issue. You can read it here - it describes it far more completely than I ever could. If there's a tip that's going to free your lens up, it'll be in there.

Hi my DS Lite microphone just stopped working so i had it replaced but still it wont respond i tried the game in another DS and it worked fine .. I also adjusted games sensitivity but still nothing ........

Hi there, the DS microphone is actually linked to the socket that is at the front of the console. Although you may have replaced the actual micrphone and wire (which was the one that came from the top part of the console and plugged onto the motherboard) it still wont fix the problem. You have to actually have to have the microphone socket replaced. They are available off of ebay for around £5 but they are not easy to fit. Ideally you need to find someone who is able to hot air solder as this is not simply something that can be unsoldered with a soldering iron. You could pay someone to do it, for example a proper console repair person but they will probably charge around £50 to do it. If you know someone who is a dab hand at electronics you could ask them if they would be able to do it. Unsoldering the socket is the more difficult part but soldering it back on is pretty easy.

This is the thing you need, I have personally fitted lots of these and it has worked every time -

DS Lite headphone/microphone socket

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Camera wont work in multiple windows

Generally You can only use a web cam on one window at a time. Unless windows has let you do that before (it hasn't for me =[ )  Even skype wont let you do that.
