Webcam not working


would start out by testing if the webcam works in any other software. For example if you got any software to go with the cam to set it up. If the webcam works in other software you follow these steps:
Open the messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and click My Webcam.
There you click on File and then Preferences.
That should open an options window. From there you go to Webcam or Webcam Broadcast.
There you'll find a button that says "Camera Source".
Make sure that the selected Webcam there is the one that you're using and click OK.

Otherwise if your computer doesn't recognize the webcam at all I would suggest to reinstall the drivers for the cam. You can either find them on a CD that you got with the cam, or if you didn't get one you can go to the manufacturers webpage and look for "Drivers", it's usually found under "Support" or a similar section of the page. Find the driver that matches your webcam and operating system (such as Windows 7 or XP etc.)
When you've downloaded them, install the file you got, follow the instructions and restart your computer and then try again. It should fix your problem.

After installing software the found new hardware wizard never appears so it does'nt finish installing. when I click on webcam express my built in web cam comes on instead of the sakar cam.


Hi there,

Is the webcam already plugged in while you are insalling the driver?

Try to install the driver and plug the webcam the software finishes installing.

or click start -> go to RUN (or type run if you're on vista or win7) -> then type devmgmt.msc

on the device manager

-click your computer Icon
-click action
-click scan for hardware changes

Hope this helps!

INSTALL PHILIPS WEB CAM SPC 600 NC


First try to plug in your Cam into the system and when it detects and pops 'windows found new hardware and installing software for it' put in the cd into the drive and choose to find/search the drivers location of the Cd.

If it doesn't not sovle your problem then first put in the CD and install any EXE file (most probably the driver installation file) and restart your PC and then after that connect your Camera to the System hopefully this would solve your problem inshallah.
