Hi

Check your computer for any programs that may be using your web cam.

For Example Photo Software Video Software

You may need to remove the drives and software for the Web Cam and then reboot and re install the software. This should fix the problem.

Let me know if you need more help.

Webcam can be used from the IM application by configuring the options of the IM app.
Should you want to use the webcam to make a video then you can find the name of the app in the Control Panel - Scanners and Cameras.

My camera is not working.it says in use by another application. I dont know which application is using it actually none of those apps are turned on.How can i fix it?


It is possible your Startup files contains Skype, VID, PhotoBooth, or some other program that hijacks your webcam. Even if you don't have those programs running they may keep you from using a different application. You will have to manually go through any type of program that could use your webcam and turn off the camera, and/or remove those programs from your Startup menu.

I Have A Built In Acer Webcam And I Dont Know How To Youse it


If you have installed your webcam driver, you should see an item called "webcam console" in your system tray(next to the system clock). Launch the console by double clicking on it. You can then record video or take pictures using the console. If you don't have the driver installed
If you dont have the driver, you can download it from

Orbicam is in use by another application


Try using an application called SplitCam, which allows you to share the webcam across applications.

Hp Webcam


If your Notebook is installed with Vista, there is no option to start the Webcam directly without using any application.
However, you can try using the HP Webcam drivers which are for XP with which you will get a Preview window to use the webcam without using any application like Messengers etc..:
Download the above mentioned driver from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35001-35500/sp35414.exe

Save the file in the Notebook and double click once the file is saved to install the drivers.
However, if you are unable to access the webcam using Quickplay application, I recommend you to try reinstalling the application by following the instructions below if the Recovery Partition is available and you are able to use the Recovery Manager application :
Click on Start and then on Control Panel in the window that appears, click on Classic View in the left pane.
Now, among the icons that are displayed, double click on Programs and Features icon and among the list that is displayed, click on HP Quickplay and click on Uninstall button on the top.
Now, follow the instructions available in the link below to reinstall Quickplay using Recovery Manager :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&docname=c00834921&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

You can also try downloading Cyberlink YouCam application which is provided for all latest Notebooks to access Webcam from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39001-39500/sp39372.exe

Save the file into the Notebook and double click the file to install the application.
You can find the required instructions to use Cyberlink YouCam application to access the webcam of your notebook from the link below :
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01414839&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

Additionally, you can find the details about YouCam application from the link below :

Hope the information helps...

Anytime I turn on Webcam and the mic on this unit the receiver is hearing a lot of noise coming from my end


Normal 0 First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
