If you are talking about the leds being lit this probably have a switch on the camera ..or ...get into the image settings by opening the AMcap feature in the all programs ..and in the window that opens ..on the options ..(the second after file or the 3rd ) there are settings for audio and video video options ..and in there remove the night vision ..this in case there is no switch ..and they are lit by this feature..(I guess it may be called low light ..and it may be in advanced settings if not in the main page
The video options can be operated from the yahoo messenger as well..just initiate the camera by inviting someone to ..than in the file in the corner of the on settings ..and voilla ...same settings ..

I fired up my webcam c250h today for the first time (on Skype.) I connected with a friend in England and for 10-15 seconds of the call, I was clear but then it went to "snow". I was sitting about 30"...

Almost seems it is a focus or lighting issue. When you moved, did the lighting change for the image (such as blocking out a bright light behind you)? This webcam specs as not having auto focus. Have you tried focusing the cam?

I just bought a logitech C250h web cam and the picture is blurry how do I fix it?

1) If the webcam has a focus ring around the lens to sharpen the image
2) if your computer has the necessary powered USB ports for this model
3) Launch the logitech dashboard (toolbar) start the cam using the Quick Capture menu and adjust while running using the Settings Menu

I have some sorts of white line's goin up and down ,you could describe it like the matrix lines but white ,how can you get a clear view to my webcam

I had the same problem. Running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2. I was led to believe it was a driver problem that hasn't been resolved yet. The cam only worked in Windows Live Messenger line free if I held a bottle of lotion about 8 inches away (strange but true). After playing around with the settings, I found that unchecking the Automatic Settings box and lowering the Gain in the Right Light Settings (the eye icon) completely eliminated the lines when running the cam in Quick Capture mode and in Logitech Vid. Give it a try.

White lines on webcam picture

Since it works OK on one machine, it has to be the software or settings.
Launch the Logitech toolbar onto your desktop during the problem time of day.
Plug the webcam in and start it using the Quick Capture button ( 2 film frames picture )
With the cam running open the 'Settings' menu ( 2 gear wheel picture )
Return to default
Run down the menu down the left hand side checking Anti flicker - right light etc for improvements
If no improvement can be found - disconnect webcam - uninstall software - restart computer and download by going to the Logitech support website - identify your webcam - click on it and download software.,en?prodcrid=405

Hi roundman5699
You can down load manual form here*Emlj&p_li=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_tbl=9&p_id=8724&p_created=1215622828&p_olh=0

You will see on page 7 in congratulations section that an IM (Instan Mesenger) software is needed.

You could use the build in windows mesenger if your running windows or down load AOL IM, Skype etc. Just google them to get the latest downloads.

Logitech quick cam pro 4.1.1

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

No sound+bad image quality

I would suggest uninstalling the software and trying you cam in a different usb port and installing the software again, but also check in the firewall allowed programmes for whatever IM programme you use. You can also have a faulty cam or faulty IM programme, so uninstall and reinstall the programme to illiminate it, and ensure you have a good connection as a slow connection causes problems along with running other memory and proccesor hungry programmes
